You better be sending a boat load of your 21.5's over to Japan. The All Japan Nationals are coming up in the month of July. I would like to get my hands on one and I bet a few people would like to try them too!

These don't work in boosted..... We did some testing and smoked 4 x 17.5 motors. They look OK in blinky, but from what I saw it not good for boosted!!

Quite a bit of default timing built in with R1 motors
One may have picked up on that after the first few smoked eh

Boosting stock motors is dead in USA, which is where this motor is developed

We haven't tried this motor in boosted, here's an email from someone that tried it.

Willem JANSE VAN RENSBURG
Message: Hi, we resantly tested a few R1 wurks 17.5 motors here in South Africa. We run 17.5 boosted and in the process of finding the limit I burned two motors. The motors performed extremely well untill I pushed it to far. Do you maybe sell the stators of these motors seperatly?

Locked down a solid TQ yesterday at first qual. But track conditions got worse and not finding the right setup I failed at. I was holding them all off in main for awhile but was fish tailing it everywhere. Thanks again Steve for all the help.
