At least the one you'll be getting is the newer piece that has more bracing. I ordered a few back in February from an Amazon store at $13.88 a piece so I'd have spares. I had broken one of the edi.winter-designed ones from Shapeways -- that was painful! The new TT parts are stronger and definitely less prone to twisting that the original part.

Were you thinking a stock and super class again? I'm in, and have a spare motor for anyone who wasn't at the Nats. Just add pinion.
I also have 2 brand new 27 Turn Brushed Motors we used at the Nationals....... $10.00 shipped if anyone wants to make a "stock bike" or have a stock bike setup to practice with. *( the advantage to this kind of "stock" bike is there is no "timing" ect to try to get an advantage on rpm etc.)

I believe we may always have a "hand out" stock class motor..... (Possibility: "or" we should decide on a VERY low KV brushless motor????? )

All I know is that a 3,300kv motor "geared up" is VERY fast and i would rather not consider that "stock". Not all brushless motors are the same!!!!! (Learned this the hard way) so brushed stock class really does keep us on the LEVEL concerning same power for all.

*** IF we do declare a brushless motor "stock" it will have to be a motor that does not have the ability to "adjust timing" on the endbell. Maybe Sensorless? (I'm not sure about this one)

If anyone has suggestions on low powered Brushless motors (and CHEAP) sealed motors, please speak up. The equivalent to a 27 turn motor will only be considered.

I'm going to be in Raleigh, NC for work during the cancer race but the Toys for Tots looks good.

I would like to see a stock class too. More runtime. I would make it 17.5 brushless blinky, though.

I considered 17.5 blinky but those are really fast compared to 27turn brushed. Just seems moot a little.

No worries Kev. The slower the better for me.
