This is the Express Motorsports "Zapper" D3.5 17.5 Turn Brushless Motor. This D3.5 based, Zapper series motor is 100% designed for spec racing! The "Zapper" motors have been tweaked to extract every bit of power from the EPIC D3.5 line. This includes checking the strength of the rotor and the inductance of the stator, and then matching the best rotors with the best stators. They are also checked for any defects, proper bearing alignment and shimming. This provides you with a reliable blueprinted motor that has all the same tweaks as the motors driven by Express team drivers, ensuring the motor you receive makes optimum power. Sensor wire included.


  • D3.5 Based
  • Improved air flow, cooler operating temperatures
  • Timing gauge on end bell, easier to make timing adjustments motor to motor, run to run
  • 100% designed for spec racing, No compromises
  • Optimized for 1-2 cell operation, Touring, off-road, oval, etc.
  • Sensor design, works with most high end racing speed controls
  • Short stator, less wire, lower resistance, more power
  • Lightweight endplate, less weight, lower center of gravity faster cornering

Express Motorsports "Zapper" D3.5 Brushless Motor (17.5T)
I picked up an Express D3 motor a few months ago for my Losi 22T and love it, so when the D3.5 came out I had to get one for my 22 buggy to try and shave some seconds off my lap times. IT WORKED! I switched out my Orion 17.5 for this one, and was shocked at the torque difference and the smooth power delivery. Express matches the can and rotor for max performance as well as upgrading the bearings and it's easy to see and feel. Don't hesitate to pick one of these up, they are top of the line motors!)

Express Motorsports "Zapper" D3.5 Brushless Motor (17.5T)
This motor is excellent. I have a 'Ripper' for 4WD stock and now a 'Zapper' for 2WD stock.
They dont run as cool as some motors I have (such as schuur speed) but they are punchier. And so smooth. No problem buying these again for sure.)

Express Motorsports "Zapper" D3.5 Brushless Motor (17.5T)
This motor just keeps pulling harder and harder as the revs climb. It's faster than my Tekin gen1 with a 13mm rotor. It's built for rpms so undergear it and turn up the timing on the can. It almost feels like I'm running boosted stock again. I love this motor.)

Great little motor, I run in door dirt-oval when from Novak Ballistic 17.5 to this and jump right to the front of the pack. Has more power ever where, pulls hard out of turns, and charges down straights. Next 17.5 motor I get will be Team EPIC / Express Motorsports that's for sure.)
