Default FDR

Hi,
Any idea of what FDR to run for a 19T Orion V2 on a medium size technical track. I usually run 6.0 for brushed stock and 4.5 for 13.5 sintered brushless. Thanks

Will a Bl motor mount right up in the Cyclone TC or does one still have to buiy the bl motor mount kit? I could not find it in the specs about this. I am getting a Cyclone TC just cause I am not all that impressed with the TOP Scythe.

If im not mistaken the elements use an insanely high rollout. I think it starts from around 34mm or something (but dont quote me on that).
with the V2 endbell i think it changes, again dont quote me on it but i think you can gear it up a couple of mm higher....

Because the gearing is so much higher than normal you will probably want to run a short test and check the motor temp.

you only really need it for mod. I have yet to see the benefit of having it running 10.5 or 13.5

Actually i reckon 5 cell is so much better, less wear and better handling car

Although it seems you have to spend a lot of money on cells if you are a top driver (NOT MY PROBLEM!!!! :P )
