Hey quick question for all... Has anyone been able to install a Trinity D4 in their car? Am I missing something? I have years of experience but have never seen a can like this 7.5 has. It only has 4 motor screw holes and they dont work with a b5m as far as I can tell

D4 in mine. I had to unscrew the can, and rotate until the holes lined up better for the solder tabs.

I have a D4 in mine, fits just fine. Turn the motor till the holes line up.
If not you can "index" the front plate to make it easier.

Question for you guys. New to 1/10 but very familiar to 1/8 electric. Bought a tekin system Rsx/8.5 combo. Left motor timing at zero and no timing on esc. Geared 22/78 for medium size clay track. Car feels very slow. Compared to other mod cars on track it looks like I'm running a 17.5. Is can timing and esc timing required to get any speed out of this system or is there another problem? If I start adding esc timing (35 starts to wake it up) it feels like a mod car. Again new to smaller scale so not familiar with timing as in 1/8 I rarely use it. Any help is appreciated.

The stock placement for the endbell puts the motor at strange positions for wiring. You need to undo the pinion side of the endbell, and rotate it 33 degree (i forget which way).. one of the positions lets you tilt the ABC tabs forward just at ad from straight up... works great. Just not great out of the package.

I run all my mod stuff at 20 degrees can timing. This new D4 was a little tricky so hopefully its fast. My D3.5 is still fast just wanted to try the new one. And yes the can is a little strange...LOL

The D4 is crazy fast but likes more can timing, I have mine at 54* with 34/69 gearing. Can't seem to get it past 115*, great bottom and top end!

I'm not sure the mod guys run that much can timing for the D4, but could be wrong.

Yeah a 7.5 with 54 degrees would be pretty ballistic with a trinity motor.
