FWIW I have it on good authority that the Cerified X-Factors are indeed ROAR legal.

The whole advantage is the certified electronics and rotor, which are undetectable, because they are simply binned / cherry picked parts. Yet cosmetic upgrades are banned. Makes a lot of sense.
Agreed.

Good to know, but I think ROAR needs to do one of two things. Either enforce the $150 limit and ban the Certified version, or drop the rule if they don't plan on enforcing it.

This has been an issue for years now, and until Roar themselves enforce it, I don't think we can expect clubs to enforce it.

i think these last few posts are an excellent example of why ROAR doesn't enforce it. All Trinity (or any other motor manufacturer) would have to do is get rid of the end plate that says certified. the parts on the certified motors anyone can buy and put on their motors (bearings, screws). the real problem are lame tracks or events where they try and take matters into their own hands and single out one manufacturer (like the aussie track or event stated in this thread). by saying that ONLY trinity motors can't have aftermarket bearings or screws, you're making an arbitrary rule targeting one motor. i get what ROAR is trying to do with the rule. unfortunately it's basically unenforceable.

This is from a PM from Rob King.

I have a basically new trinity certified xfactor 17.5 where the stator has come loose inside the motor can. Multiple people have told me that this is really common with this motor and that all trinity will do is glue the stator to the can using CA glue. Are there any videos on how to properly glue the can?

TIA

I have a crack in the can of my 17.5 certified, can these be purchased anywhere or do I need to send it in? I race a lot and like this motor, I would hate to use my back up. Thanks

I have a T6.2 kit with a Revtech X-Factor 7.0T modified motor. Stock spur gear is 81T. What do you guys recommend for a pinion on indoor dirt(with maybe a little clay) would say medium traction) Timing is still at the stock 30*.
