Not to get off topic but the xray gear diffs are lighter than their ball diffs...

I'm excited to get my Team Associated XB4s...I mean B64s. They don't even need to be as good as the XRay. I'll be ok with close to as good and really happy with "as good".Just being able to carry 1 brand of parts is going to be awesome.

In general for those experienced with similar layed out buggies, do you do anything to balance out the weight of the motor versus the weight of the shorty? On my current vehicle I run the esc behind the motor for that, however, its other electronics are centrally aligned on the chassis so visually it made sense.

It shouldn't be any issue...

This is not an unreasonable question but I, for one, don't even think about that type of stuff. I figure that they knew what they were doing when they designed it. That's what [in my mind] has allowed all of the major companies to win races. Once again, I'm not being sarcastic, if I really put that much thought into it I'd build my own car. I set my cars up initially like the book says and go from there.

compare the weight of the Motor, ESC, and Motor wires to the weight of the Servo, Servo Mount, Receiver, and Lipo...I'll bet there's not a huge difference

no worries. The only reason it even comes to mind is that with my current vehicle and its 2wd carpet variant, they show the 2wd versus with the ESC behind the motor explicitly versus the wheeler without it. Made me wonder if there was a benefit to and if there was something special about 1/10 4wd vehicles why we don't do that for that similar layout.

I'm going to run 13.5 wheeler for the first time. What type of motors work well for 13.5 indoor medium bite and size given a wheeler's weight and driving characteristics? I was thinking I want a real torquey motor because the wheeler has some weight, but maybe 13.5 wheelers need high rpms maxed out?

Basically, I'm asking if high RPM or High torque is better for wheeler 13.5?

I run the T Type Fantom FR2 13.5 in my race car. My buddy won 13.5 Wheeler in the 2016 JBRL series with the same motor I run.....we get them with the pro select rotor. I run a Hobbywing Bandit 13.5 in my thrasher car and its faster and runs cooler but those are not ROAR legal.

i'll be running the team powers actinium V2. the 17.5 is a torque monster so i see no reason not to expect the same from the 13.5.

I am liking the Maclan 13.5 I have, we run on a tight small carpet track and its in a mod class, but most run 10.5s at a max and other than some low end I am right there with them. Heck, the guy who cleaned up last race was running a straight up 13.5 .

I would consider there ultra torque rotor in my conditions.

Unless your track has a great deal of grip, I think you'll find motor choice makes very little difference, beyond feel. I run a novak ballistic, with the stock 12.3 rotor. Im faster on the straight than most other guys and while our traction is good, wheel spin or short stretches erase any difference in "punch" another motor might have. I never reach full throttle anywhere but the straight, anyway.

Point being, they're all very good and they're changing very slowly, if at all.
