Twister Modified – red label

This is a Twister Modified motor from their top of the line series with the red label, built by their motorman Erik Soderquist also known as “Dr. Erik Von Quick”. From our knowledge all Twister motors were based on Yokomo cans, this one is using the Wet Mag version. The red label motors were very fast and high quality at the same level as Checkpoint, Trinity or Reedy motors.
Twister modified motors were made for roadcourse, offroad, drag and oval races. One of the results was TQ and 3rd place overall at the 1987 Offroad Worlds 2WD by Kyosho driver Kris Moore using a Twister 19×2 motor. At the famous Lake Whippoorwille oval track Twister´s Mike Boylan always was the man to beat at the 1/10th Modified class.
Beside car motors Twister was making also some very fast boat motors with their “Hydro Speed” series where they held several Nationals records, also an “Air Force” series was made for airplanes.
