hi skiddens, i went down a couple of teeth on the pinion and put the timing to 30 degrees. motor came off at 65 external and about 85 internal its still a bit smelly still but hopefully that will stop with time.
gonna try more timing friday hopefully if im feeling brave
thanks for your help. plummers

It's the external temp that matters and 65degC will be fine.
It's a good idea to put a small square of black gaffer tape on the outer can. As it's less reflective it gives a more accurate temperature reading than just using the can itself.
I would try a blue rotor as well.

Has anyone used the Thunder Power bearing removal tool?

How does it work and will it only remove bearings from the can, or from the sensor end as well?

Hi all,

I've just recently Bought one of these Thunder Power Z3R 13.5 Motors for my 1/12th Scale Car.

The 1/12th Scale 'GT12' Class that we do is on an Average sized Indoor Carpet Track, with a 1S Lipo & the Speedo is in Non Timing 'Blinky' Mode!

I just wondered if anyone could give me a good Starting point on Gearing/Rollout?

Ideal Timing used on the Motor?

Sticking with the Std Rotor or Upgrading?

Thanks.

Is the top speed and motor temps similar with the 13.5 motor regarding the (3) different rotors available?

I have generally found that using higher torque (higher gauss) rated rotors can reduce the temperatures slightly.
I found the blue to be slightly punchier than the red rotor.

I have yet to try the green rotor, that will be next.

Kidding aside, they look nice! If Paul was in on the design im sure there dialed
Normally here good things about TP perhaps they save money on the lipo's then

Has anyone tested the difference between the blue and green rotors in 13.5? Was the top speed the same? Everyone's experience will be very helpful. Thanks in advance.

Top speed is never the same when you change something in the motor and nothing else.

I know that Plummers, tried the green rotor last night in blinky and said it made a huge difference.
His car certainly looked quick to me.
I also tried the green rotor for the first time in 13.5 boosted.
When geared up my car seemed sluggish but the lap times said different.
I nned to experiment more with timing and the RPM settings on my ESC.

I Qulai'd 3rd, blue car with yellow and orange striped front end.

yep can confirm what skiddins said, big improvement with the green rotor in, hall was ambient at 25 degrees, motor timing at 35 and geared to 4.5 in blinky. consistent through the whole run and motor came off at 70. usually struggle to keep motor temps down but the green rotor helped alot. plummers

Thanks, I only have the green rotors and heading to the Tamiya Nationals next week. So, it sounds like your power and top speed were on pace with everyone else. That's good to know. Thanks for the reply.
