    There are a lot of motors out there and honestly other than asking around there's no way to know which is the best. Can someone give me a list of the best motors for speed/torque?

    Assuming Best=highest performance.Well, usually you pick one or the other, depending on your build. (High power, or high speed)
    Is this motor going to be used for a specific application?

    Either way, (not sure about the new stuff you kids use) I've heard the systema magnum is quite a beast.

    That's interesting... why do you say Systema motors suck?

    Because they do. They heat up quickly from what I heard.

    Lonex motors will perform much better than systema for a cheaper price.

    Hmmm... fair enough.
    They must be a new thing.

    Nope. Systema motors have always been pretty bad.

    Lonex motors have always been pretty good and priced well.

    Either way, nevermind then. We are still awaiting response from Pyronius.

    I agree on Lonex motors, they well built, have great performance, and are reasonably priced. I love my A2's, they are ridiculously efficient compared to their performance.

    I really don't know what I'm going to do with the M4 I'm messing with atm. Like a said I just wanted to know what you guys think the best two motors for speed and torque are. I'll look up the Lonex ones, thanks for the tip

    Speed motors are terrible. There is no build where it would make sense to use one except for a tactical piston destroyer.
