Some people actually have dynos like we use on full size car, but these are used mostly in pan car racing. Heres a pic of the motor checker and a link to the dyno.http://www.mcpappyracing.com/dyno.php
thanks any one have one of these and what electronics do they use to get those plots? I may have to check out how to run a brushless motor on my old Fantom Dyno. I was looking at the Kill Shot descriptions and it sounded like the Maxilla came with the RPM stator and the 12.5mm turquoise HT rotor???? Are there different versions of the Maxilla?

You can get the Maxzilla in both the RPM and Torque Stators.

I have a beast kill shot. Double torque. I am getting temps at 130, at 62 degrees timing. This is a small carpet track. Can I increase timing, or gear up?

62* is pushing it on timing. your prob getting to the point where its becoming less efficient. if its a small track you don't need all that timing...I would go 55* max and just gear for temps. If its small then you prob need more low end then more top end speed.

I was running about 60 deg on a small carpet track geared 4.05 fdr on a rpm stator/aqua torque rotor. Temped around 145. I wouldn't go past 60, so in your case try adding some gear.

Hey Chris,
I had the same motor for gt 10 yesterday and it worked really well. Check your pm.

Ran my RPM 21.5 KILL SHOT the first time this weekend and was impressed. Really narrowed the top end gap between me and the fast guys in USGT. In the second A main I think I was just getting into its power band but I had a broken suspension part and was just cruising to get points for our series, but still had some of my fastest laps all day. Motor was 60* timing FDR less than 3.6 (very big outdoor track) and temp was less than 140F with a fan on a 90+ degree day (Yea Texas). Still room for more gear and the next race is at a bigger track here in San Antonio.

However, while adjusting the timing, I lost one of the end bell screws that holds the timing ring. (Thing ran two quals and two mains with only one screw holding the timing ring in place). Anyone know what size of a screw the Kill Shot motor uses? I know its different than what's on a Tekin Gen 2 motor.

HI all killshot MOTOR drivers running 13.5 small indoor track just popped my 5th motor .
must say the killshot are quick but very inconstant. some have popped at 45deg some at 35deg some at 70deg.
Timming all around the 50 to 60 deg mark .
running the ht-ht hr-ht also standard rotor .
Must say that it still cannot keepup with the now BAND D 3.5 MOTOR .

I have been running my 17.5 Killshot since it came out. Torque rotor and RPM stator. No issues and not giving up much to the D3.5s I compete against locally. Running 50 degrees on the can and 3.95 gearing on the touring car. Normally comes off around 145-152 so I'm fairly conservative on how hard I'm running it. That said I know of a few people who have smoked these motors running similar setups so I doubt I'd buy another. Too much of a gamble when there are other options that are fast and don't seem to be as inconsistant in quality. Really liking the new Team Scream motor in my 1/12th scale.

There a 5x2.5mm flathead, you can use cap head ones no problem as well

A tad confused on what rotors I'm allowed to use in a "standard" 21.5 D3.5 motor. I've seen some posts on high torque and rpm stators. The "standard" 21.5 D3.5 will have what kind of stator? high torque or rpm?

Is it possible to use a 12.5 turquoise rotor in my "standard" 21.5 D3.5? I'm looking to change out the purple rotor for more torque in my 1/12. I'm running on a tight technical track and need the get up and go like the ORCA 21.5 TX has. Should I look into going for the pink rotor?

What are your thoughts?

Yes it will fit your D3.5 (as well as D3 and Revtech motors). Don't know what stator comes with the 21.5 D3.5.
