You do have the 3 screws out of the can on the pinion end, right? Just asking.

Hello,

Just bought 4.5 thunder power. I'm wondering which timing and final ratio do I have to use for a medium sized outdoor track.
Also I use a Orion r10 pro, does anyone have a good starting setup with this speedo?
Thanks in advance.

I'd start with about 10* motor timing and try an 8.8 FDR to start. Definitely temp after a couple minutes though as outdoor racing can vary widely in temperature. I don't know specifically for an Orion, but I would start in blinky mode with whatever the linear throttle profile is and no boost. Add drag brakes to taste.

Yep,
got some M2.5 * 10mm and they fit perfectly. Looks a lot better and a lot easier to adjust.

Could someone explain the difference between the 4.0 and 4.5 motors. Is it just a different feel, power band, torque, whatevr. Thanks.

what we call 0 winds are used where you dont need to go a whole wind for power as they are 1/2 wind less.

Agreed. I ran the blue rotor this winter with good success. Haven't tried the green rotor, but it should provide a little more torque over the blue. Time the motor at around 38* with a 3.8 to 4.0 fdr. I always ran a fan on the motor as well. Very happy with the performance of the Thunderpower motors.
