I heard there was an up dated from Orion coming if it's not already out on the market??? anyone have a little mod for this motor . What I'm gonna do is decrease the timing a bit and go up a few teeth on my pinion .I was running it in my XX-4 worlds with the purple 84 tooth spur and a 17 tooth pinion .
hope someone can help me.
P.S. can't win if you can't finish .
Thanks in advance
Just decrease the timing. Don't change the pinion.
The wires will come unsoldered when the motor gets too hot, of when the solder joints are poor. Make sure your joints are perfect every time. Once they come unsoldered, just soldering them backon will cause the same thing to happen again. Cut the ends off your esc wires and start fresh using 60/40 solder. And always use some new solder when resoldering the wires after changing the motor.
If your drivetrain is bound or you are using a lot of brakes (most people use way to much brake), the same problem will occur.
