I can list a few others for 21.5 too, yet I think the only way to really tell the fastest motor is by using a motor gauge, something that measures RPM's and torque. Seems everyone has a fav' motor and swears its the fastest.

Surprised a R1Wurks V15 isn't mentioned........... 21.5 or 17.5 so far very impressive!

More to it than the most powerful on the dyno. The TSR motors are also efficient so they do not lose that power over the run as fast as others do.

In 13.5, the SMC Totemic. Hands down.

For the 17.5 and 21.5 the Totemic is equally as competitive with virtually no fade.

still loving my old team powers...cant imagine that their newest release isnt a slouch either IJS. i dont know if there's a wait on their new motor like TSR, but those are my 2 go to motors. i'm not a fantom fan, spent $150 and it ended up being not worth it, at least in my TC. in my buggy it's fast as hell

Really?! I still have brand new Actinium 4.5T and 17.5T motors. I also have a 13.5T and 17.5T by Thunder Power that are new. My 21.5T is actually Hobbywing's JS6 system, new.

I just wanted an edge as this stuff, other than the Team Powers stuff, is kinda old. I think the JS6 is still fairly new.

Formula do yourself a favor and stop trying to buy your way to the top. Clear your calendar and get your butt out there and practice. No motor is gonna help you if you crash too much.
