After the break in, it was time to open it up and see what this new motor could do! I was very pleased with the acceleration, and the
top speed looked a bit faster as well! I was easily in the 40+ mph range, and the motor was keeping a decent temperature as I bashed it around the
parking lot. I had Neil bring out his racing buggy. I won't say the name, but it wasn't cheap and has a lot of 7's in the name. It's also got a
pretty expensive racing motor in it. We set up a little course with a nice long straightaway to really get the speeds up. Lap after lap
we were neck and neck. To see his buggy take the last turn and open it up, and to see my Lightning Buggy with it's new motor right there next to him brought a pretty big
smile to my face. This new .26 is good and fast!
I recently brought the buggy to the new indoor off-road track we have here. The track is huge, with an insane amount
of jumps as well as two huge straight-aways! After getting used to the track layout, I was able to hold my own very well against any of the other buggies out there.
The acceleration from the new motor was great for getting me over the big jumps when I needed it, and the top speed in the straights kept me right there next to the big guys and their expensive racers!
If you are in the market for a new motor, and you are not looking to drop a ton of money on it, check into getting the new HB28503 .26 motor from Hot Bodies.
I have been really happy with its performance. It's been holding a tune great, and it won't break your bank!
