Want to thank Jim for helping me the last 5 years while I ran for TP and listening to my endless bitching.


Now I have to pick new motors and sticks to run...

Looking at the 550 motors. Trying to decide if I should get thunder power or reedy. Is the power band different? What are the differences?

Does anybody have solid numbers on the kv rating of the mod motors (specifically the 7.5)? I can't find any kv ratings anywhere.

Thanks in advance,

Mark

The Mod motors use a different rotor from the stock versions.
Stick with the original, it will be far more powerful (plus I think it won't fit )

Spec rotors fit inside the mod cans - it'll smooth out the powerband at the expense of efficiency... I tried this as an experiment while learning to drive a Mod TC on asphalt. Upside, car was significantly easier to drive; downside, my batteries took a beating...

i ended up finding something on you tube and changed out the rotor, but the kit came with a couple different spacers and one o-ring. i just used the same spacer as the stock rotor. is there a reason why there are extra spacers for the rotors?

also noticed that stock rotor has four holes drilled into it. check the picture out. is that a mod that people do or is that from the factory like that? the green rotor does not have any holes in it. BTW, I bought the motor used.

Thanks

The extra spacers are included to allow you to adjust the rotor's location relative to the sensors on the sensor board. In most cases, using the shims supplied with the original rotor will suffice, but there are cases where shims are added or subtracted to locate the rotor in the can correctly.

The drilled holes in the rotor are used for balancing purposes. Special machinery is required to make sure that the rotor balances properly, so very few people would be performing this modification on their own. I wouldn't worry about the lack of balance holes on the new rotor - it simply means that the rotor was within the factory tolerances for being balanced without requiring additional material to be removed.

Trying to wrap my head around this because i'm getting back into electric racing. I have 1 motor with blue rotor and another with stock red rotor. the blue I can gear to 3.3-3.4 with 35 timing? the red I can gear to 3.5-3.6 with 35 degree timing?

It sounds like I would fair better with the green rotor, but what gearing and timing?

This is all on the Xray T4'14.

Thanks

How large is your track, and how open are the typical layouts? Once we have an idea of how tight the track is, we can give you a better idea how to gear the motor. If you're thinking of running the TP 17.5 in TC, the green rotor w/35 degrees of timing is the way to go.
