what are the best, fastest, most fun minimum diameter 38mm & 54mm motors? preferably single use motors.
I'm hoping to have some fun with some FAST rockets!

It's not single use and required electronic deployment, but I love the AT I1299N-P It's just a 38mm 4 grain I motor, but that 430 Ns is gone in 1/3 second. The first time I used it, the adjusted sims based on actual altitude put motor burn out at 134 ft, 526 mph and 80g acceleration. If you want FAST, it will move a light rocket very fast!

LCO be like:
"Five! Four! Three! Two! One!"
*hits button*
*rocket teleports into the 12th dimension*

If you're lucky you'll see the smoke trail. :)

not fast, but a J90 would be pretty cool in a minimum diameter rocket.
K185,too.
