Question Motor Help please....

It's time to replace the stock motor on my Micro RS4 and was wondering if either the HPI mod 45T or the Trinity Micro Monster (with motor plate) was worth purchasing. I don't know of too many online hobby shops and was checking out tower hobbies when I came across those 2.

The most frustrating thing I'm finding is that while you can see these motors there are no specs that indicate performance vs. the orginal stock motor!

This will only be for bashing and zipping around, not for racing.

Thanks to Alfredo I will be picking up a Novak Spy to get reverse for the first time. I figured I'd mention it since it may be a factor in which motor I should get. I am also using this set up with a KO Propo Mars-1 radio system.

Thanks for any help!

the hpi/peak/team orion 45t mod motors are a waste of cash. I am not sure about the trinity motor. I was just wondering how much of a speed increase are you looking for? I like the plain speed 300 motor and GHh motor plate:

And for a proformance listing I think there is a old thread around.

As Ron put it dont waste your money on a mod stock motor, there just a tad bit faster then the stock.....get yourself a 300 motor plate and a speed 300 you will be happy.
