I just got a Mach 3 and wonder if I'll have to make a similar "adjustment". Timing should be timing...I shouldn't have to compensate for a manufacturer building-in an error.
I suspect it has been that way the whole time, judging by all the comments I read that the motor runs way hotter than the previous model at the same timing.

I have a Sonic 6.5(from 2009 - 2010) it came set with 0 timing. That motor never gets hot.(5 - minute runs/races and geared right)

I also have a Sonic 10.5 Mach 3. It came set with 20 timing. It gets warmer quicker than the older 6.5.(5 - minute runs/races. . .geared right...?)

I'm going to set the 10.5 Mach 3 timing to 0.
It should run cooler. . .and cheaper(I wouldn't have to buy a new motor).

Default 10.5 Sonic M3 kv #s?

Anyone know the kv #s on/for the Reedy 10.5 Sonic M3 motor?

I think I can check the kv rating on my Graupner Polaron EX 1400. . .?
But; I wanna know the #'s from you pros.

Thank You
