Default Good 19 Turn Race motor For Desert Truck?

Hi,

I've decided that I want to get a desert truck and I'm wondering what would be a good 19 turn motor for oval racing?

Thanks,
Tom

The Checkpoint Money 19t is GREAT and it lasts a while without needing a comm cut or brushes.

that money motor will be good but you might not want a $50 motor. try [link=http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXMDY8&P=V]this[/link], its a trinity komodo dragon pro for $40 and its pre broken in and dynoed (i doubt), it will also be race legal if you are under roar. call your track as most tracks have handouts for the 19t class. i would go with the komodo because it is cheap but a very nice motor. also i think orion sells an v2 element 19t. those are good motors also but it is $60 for the newest one, sporting lay down brushes, and $40 for the older one.

these are some of the most popular but there are other 19t motors out there. just make sure your motor meets up to rules and you are ready to go.

The money is ROAR legal. Also the Komodo Dragon is a very high maintence motor. It needs a trued comm and new brushes around every 6-9 runs.

What he said. ^ I get about 10 runs out of mine between rebuilds, I did get 12 once but it wasn't too happy about it.

Actually check these guys out www.fantomracing.com. They know how to build a race motor, I have several of there 19t motors and there all reliable and faster than anything else on the track.

The Team Checkpoint motors run forever without a rebuild.

The Team Orion Element 19T are great motors. They last plenty of runs and are fast.

I have both the Orion Element and the Checkpoint money 19t motors. The Element is very high mainence compared to the Money and the money has more power.

That is stock.

Anyway, most people run 13.5's in SS as 10.5 arent allowed anymore. There isnt much difference in performance between brushed/brushless if you cut the comm and replace brushes every 5 runs but with brushless all you have to do is oil it every run and take it apart after every race day. My modded co27 keeps up with the brushless/lipo cars on the stright but I get be at in accelration and agility because they have lighter cars even though they add weight.
