Yes we probably made our life harder by trying to make your life easier.... We gave each motors bearings their own part number to make it easier for customers to look them up, but they are the same bearings.

The gen3 rotors do fit into the gen4 motors. Unfortunately we changed the colors so those are not the same. New upgrade gen4 rotors like the TT2782 silver extra strong rotor fits in gen3 motor. Sensor boards also fit both.

Gen3 endbells are different than Gen endbells.

Any advantages to running a Gen3 pcb in a Gen4 or other way around?

Thank you for the info. I'll put in an order for the G4 rotor and bearings. I want to use them to rebuild my G3. I'm doing tests to see if it's worth rebuilding a motor or buying a new one.

Any news on the new spec R2 motors that were just ROAR approved? I'm in the market for a 13.5 for my b74.2

How does the R2 match up to the rest?

Time will tell but so far they seem better than most and as good as any. It is a more torque based design and less kv compared to current SpecR that is more appropriate for todays high bite tracks and layouts.

Jim,

Only two of us left in Sac since the Randy Pike days. While I donít run the motors anymore I still get them to see what the new models bring to the table. Look forward to the newest edition 👍🏾.

I'm interested in getting a Tekin 17.5 motor for testing purposes. I want to compare them to the rest of the motors I have tested. When will the new R2 be released?

That's cool. That gives me a couple more weeks to save up. These motors are expensive. I sell them after I test them, but I don't get what I paid for them.

you donít take them for a spin at all? I always track test what hits my bench to see how they perform in race conditions.

I no longer have a track in my area. The closest is 50 miles in the Bay Area, and I don't prefer to go out that way. As you'll may have heard, that isn't a very pleasant area. I'll go bash around, but I don't intend to keep the motors, so I don't bash with them. I'll buy them, test them, then sell them. If I use them, they are not worth as much. I'm already losing a lot without using them.

what would you race? Off road or on road? There are tracks of each closer than the Bay Area.
