Actually 33.5mm is pretty conservative...it will pull bigger gears on larger tracks outdoors. I have run FDR's in the 5.4-6.00 range depending on track size.
About the brush hoods. There is nothing wrong with the Orion standard brush hoods other than they are too precise. Brushes can vary in size from production run to production run. The Trinity XXX's I have now fit really tight so I have to open the hoods a bit. The good thing is that this reduces brush cocking for more power.
On my Trinity motors I spend a lot of time tweaking my brush hoods to get them straight and to tighten them up on the brushes. You don't have to do that to Orion or Reedy motors.
