Hi guys, what will be the best end-bell timing to run in 17.5 boosted. I currently run my d3.5 on 10deg with a fdr of 6.63

Finally had my chance with the rpm stator and HT rotor today. Wish I would of listened to most of the responses on this thread a long time ago. I race on a large track and I thought the torque stator torque rotor combo was going to be the best option for me. I was wrong! I was geared at 4.0 with my motor timing set at 65* accidently! I forgot to set everything after I pulled apart to clean it. I might drop back to 58* timing when I do some more testing or I blow it up! This is what I was needing. I just had time to run a battery pack cuz I had dinner plans and the wife was waiting. Cant wait till tomorrows race day.

accident I don't think so first time I tried the torque stator it was slow. I needed a rotor, fdr, timing change to make it go fast. I assume the torque version is meant for the small carpet tracks. Because on an open track it is slow.

give 3.9fdr @ 60 deg a try. This was my setup that was fast and still cool. Anymore at the track I race at will fade 3-4 min in.

Haha! Will try it thanks. Even though I didn't notice any fading and my temps came off about 109*. Good to have so many options and I will keep my torque motors for smaller tracks!

Will the D3.5 torque rotor will fit the new Killshot motor?

Hi guy's

I just got the Kill Shot HT 17.5 motor. I am running a 64P 100T spur with 50t pinion with 4.0 fdr. What should i set the timing at on the motor? This is for a medium size indoor track.

Cheers,

Cheers,
Are you running the high torque rotor also? I run a 3.8 FDR and timing at 58*. You can prob run that or even 60* and be good.

RPM motor with HT rotor worked very well today. Started at 3.8 fdr then went to 3.7 fdr on our large pavement track. Motor stayed cool at 130*! Motor timing was at 60*. Ended up 3rd out of 13 in the A-main. Totally different motor compared to the High Torque stator. Got the motor now its setup time!

Yes, it is a high torque motor and rotor. So around 58-60* sounds safe...Thanks guys...

Any recommendations on a FDR for a tiny track, 50'x25' with a ton of tight corners and one 40' straight?
