I recently looked at the numbers of the P2K2 Pro's and I was not impressed. I don't recall what the numbers were exactly but know that things could have been better. My P2k Pro had better numbers from what I recall.

I am going to wait for that Orion Core to come out before I buy another stocker.

What do you all think? I have not had the time to try the motor yet.
Those numbers are decent and what I expect from a motor utilizing a new magnet type and can design. One other thing, are the brushes a bit wider? I could not use my brush serrator with the brushes that were provided with the motor.

I think the stock brushes in the P2k2 are wider. I noticed the tighter fit in the brush hood. This was confirmed when I put in some Reedy 767's and Team 1 4140's. As for the pro version, I haven't had a chance to put my hands on one. I prefer to build the motors myself or let Team 1 do it, that way I know it is done correctly.

That motor is better than decent, if only the numbers were true

I also noticed the burshes are wider. I went to put them into my pro-match brush serrator, and they wouldn't fit! I had to file them down a little, to get them to fit. The older 4499s always fit...Must be something else to get what we don't need, revs!

I wonder if Pro-Match will make a new base with a 'X' pattern groove to accomodate the wider stand-up and laydown brushes. I am not happy about having to conform to a new standard of brushes for the new Trinity motors.

I would not have filed the brush down to fit the channel in the serrator base. Turn the serrator upside down on the armature shaft and use the flat surface of the base and make a freehand cut for now. I will machine my base so it accepts the new brushes in the near future.

I never used a Rage but would start at a 48 pitch 87 tooth spur and 28-34 pinions.

Okidoki,

If I remember right I ran the 35 t pinion on long flowing tracks but I had to go down to 32-33 t for tighter tracks with lots of tight turns. With the 35t the motor would get too hot on tight tracks.

Hope that helps.

You want to run the rage a couple of teeth down from a P2k Pro. On the TC3, i usually run my rage a 72/24-27.

Thanks for all the feedback on the my numbers for the p2k2pro. I took the motor with a person with a dyno and he freaked. He doesnt like Trinitys numbers and does his own thing. He said the motor is smoking. Lots of Torque and RPM.

Marvi start with a 28 tooth pinion. Monitor the temperature of the motor and change pinions and spurs based on the temp.
