its not the fastest motor

but it is very reliable, and easy to tune

since its a big track your gonna need alot of top end, which the CV-R lacks a little

you may wana look at something like the fantom FR-12, due to the almazing top end which is great for big tracks, and the rebuilds are the cheapest i've ever seen

your other option would be a novarossi CX-12

for pull start motors anyways...

Post Motor for HPI3

Dave,

If you want to keep up with the BIG BOYS(aka Timmy, Erock, Billy etc...) you are going to need to get a MT-12 or MR-12. That is the motor that all of these guys will be running. I just got an OS TR-12, and it seems quite capable of hanging in there.

Later,
