Which would be a better motor to upgrade a Scaley GT car with: Slot.it 21.5 k or NSR 'Shark' 21.4 k ? Is there maybe another motor that I haven't thought of, keeping in mind that for competiton purposes, motor must not be rated at > 23 k ?

Hi steve
Just checking the club rule is motors must not be rated at > 23 k rather than motors must not run at > 23 k
Some motors run a good bit quicker than the rpm ratings suggest.
So as well as looking at the Slot Car Motor List for motors with good torque, it's worth looking for ones that are rated at less than 23 k but run higher.

Of course that's assuming more power is an advantage for the conditions you are racing in. Too much power for the chassis doesn't make a car lap quicker.
