Depending on gearing and rollout, almost any mod motor will give shorter run times than
a ROAR stock motor. The two Speed Gem modified motors you mentioned are very far apart
im performance ( 12 vs 19 turns ); the Quartz might be close to the X-Star motor in
power and battery consumption, but the Diamond will suck your battery dry pretty
quickly. The D2 motors are very good, but again it depends on the number of turns you
use. The 17-turn double D2 will be much easier on batteries than the 10-turn D2 motors.
I'd recommend a modified motor with at least 16 turns or more for you until you have
enough practice time to use the extra power. The T-Tech motors might be a good choice
to try first, as they are close in power to the Gems but cost less. It would be a shame
to invest in a premium D2 only to discover that the motor you chose is not what you
really wanted. Good luck!
