I've run the Red and Green before in 2wd 17.5 blinky buggy. Just depends on the track. Indoors, small track, on astro I went for the Green. Outdoors, large track with low traction I went with the Red rotor. The Blue should be a nice in-between.

Check the bottom of it on the first pic. Looks like it has cooling slots in it.

Any body can tell me what is the stock rotor size on the Thunder Power 13.5 motors? I can't find any info on the site.
