For TC i used the blue rotor that and it worked out well but I'm curious what I'll get from the green in 12th.
Nobody is running 12th with the green rotor?

I liked the blue rotor better in 12th. 30 degrees timing, start in the 95 to 100 mm rollout range. I used the green rotor for a bit but found it dropped off more at the end of a run than the blue. This is one you'll have to mess around with a bunch to find the sweet spot. For me, higher rollouts like less timing, while a lower rollout was better with more timing....this is all dpendant on how good your battery is too

Thanks. I did some searching on this thread last night and figured i should be between 98-101 rollout. I have the blue rotor in my TC but I guess I can try switching them between runs to see what i like.

Does anyone have recommendations for timing for both the 17.5 and 21.5 motors on 2s LiPo? I run on medium-to large-sized carpet tracks with good traction, and medium-sized outdoor with low-to medium traction.

I'd use 35 degrees of timing in both cases... If you're using the motors in TC/USGT applications, I'd also recommend using the 12.5 mm green rotors.

Ciao to all,
my 13.5 T just arrived, i'll place it on my tc blinky racing. I'll race in medium size track.
Can you suggest me a good starting point? I should leave it stock with 40/50 of end bell timing, or i must change the rotor?

Tnks to all

+1 I run 21.5 with the green rotor and 35degree timing and it's great throughout the power band.

Interesting. I have been doing lots of testing for 13.5 12th with another brand lately and it LIKES a Torque rotor with less drop off at the end. With the TP and green rotor setup I've been seeing relatively more drop off. However, I have been running roll outs the same with both motors. I guess the TP design likes a little more timing/revs and less roll out?

I'll try the blue! Thanks!

I switch to blue in 12th and green in TC. The TC is up to speed for sure with green rotor, but I haven't figured out a good rollout for the 12th with blue rotor yet.

In blinky 1/12, the guys don't use any more than 35-40deg of end bell timing otherwise the motor generates too much heat.

Yup, green rotor works well in TC. i'm still experimenting with 30 or 35 degrees timing.
