I really don't know for sure, but they look like some Trinity Speed Gems motors(no idea which wind, though, you may need to check Trinity's website to look up which color is which).....:cool:

Yes, they look like the speed gems 2 ruby 16T if im not mistaken.

The EVX speed control says its only good for 19-27 Turns.
So if these are 16T (which they do appear to be)
Why is the ESC holding up.
I have ran it hard 2 or 3 times in a row around 5 minutes each.
So apparently the ESC is doing OK.

They also look like a stock motor i have. I think its from around 1995 and had timing of 36 degrees. Check to see if the timing is adjustable, or check the end of the can.

Yeah, those definitely look like the standard Trinity pink stock motors from the mid 90's. Some of you may remember the pink can was the 36 degree stock, while the green can was the 24 degree stock.

That could be possible, but I believe that if those were outlaw stocks, the endbells would look different(I believe they were the basic black color for any stocks), while these in the pic are red, like the can, & they do look EXACTLY like the Speed Gems 2 Ruby, which is a 16 triple wind(I looked it up on Trinity's site after my last post). It is also possible to run 16 turn motors in that, if they keep the timing low(or at 0 degrees) & be careful not to overgear the truck....:cool:

The stock motor i have definitly has a pink endbell unless i am greatly color-blind. Now that i look at my speed gems and stock motor, it looks like it could be either of them.

Now that I think about it, I think Trinity used the same can and endbell for both the 36 degree stock and the speedgem ruby.

Look for screws that hold the endbell in place. If the motors have them, they're most likely rubies. If not, probably 36 degree stock (pretty old ones too). Those particular stock motors, like all stocks from back then, have tabs where the can meets the endbell that hold everything together.

They were legal in NORRCA racing and they were the Monster Horsepower pink can and endbell. There was some confusion with the actual timing Trinity advertised 36degree but when measured it was 34 degrees. In order to get 36degrees they were cranking the armature stack as well. I'll check some of my remaining ones to see whats stamped on the can.
