And wouldn't you know, those are also the top of the discard pile at races with active tech. To be fair, they're not the only ones getting popped, but to be real, they lead the way.

I'm not sure if that answers your question in the way you're hoping, but those are the fast motors. Buying off the shelf, probably you'll be okay. Or to put it another way, so long as you're running a ROAR-approved motor, you'll be okay. We don't have the equipment to test stator IR with a credible degree of accuracy. You could be running a ROAR-approved motor that doesn't meet the ROAR spec, and we won't know.

FWIW, I'm running a Motiv in Stock TC this summer.
did i say thanks yet? if not thanks, I just read this, I think

Korey Harbke--Tamiya TA05 kit tires on blue plastic rims
Jake Danilchik--10-run Sweep 36s from Stuart's 2017 TZGP l
Brian Shook--center drilled Oreo cookies
Stuart Mason--rims

That should leave plenty for the rest of us!
Double stuff in the front regular in the rear. I'm experimenting with a wider front.

As promised, the domes are yellow. Stuart handled this one, so thank him. They'll be nice and visible next time out.

Yellow domes for Seatac R/C Raceway

Default Thanks to the Todd Father

Mr Todd Mason, I appreciate that this club wouldn’t be as good as it is without you at the helm. Thank you for making it all work so well. Obviously I get a little buggered when we have disagreements and always regret how I handle it at the time. So sorry about that. And you’ve done a great job with the perfect gentleman son of yours with the heart of a ferocious lion on the track :-). Be proud. Happy Father’s Day !

Signed
Jake

Well Jake, thank you. We've been taking on this project together since literally that first day in 2009 when we were piecing together our first track with the leftovers from three different programs. We've tested each other, no question. You've been watching Stuart grow up at the track the whole time, and you have to know that in his young life you are an unwavering example of steadfast enthusiasm and loyal friendship. One of the rocks.
