How's the torque of these motors. I am on the fence between an Orca 21.5 TX and the a R1Wurks 21.5. The local carpet always has plenty of 180 & 270 corners. I've run an Ocra TX in 17.5 for a couple of months now and like the punch. How's the Wurks stack up?

The torque on these motors are incredible! Best torque out there. When Steve was designing them he wanted the fastest out of turn speed possible with incredible top end(u may even need to gear to a lower fdr # than most motors. So you will be extremely happy with the torque of your R1 Wurks motor! So torquey. ...its even dominating in offorad!

As Michael said, the R1 Wurks motors definitely have torque. The motors also get up to speed quickly and have excellent punch out of corners.

I run around 35 degrees of timing on mine for 13.5 blinky and gear at around 4.4 for a 125' straightaway. My motors have been superb!

These motors are the real deal.

I had another racer run the 21.5 motor in f1 with me today. We were trying same timing and gearing. His was about 30-50% faster than mine. My motor is definitely slower out of the box. It never overheated. Always below 145. Who do I contact for possible replacement under warranty?

We had our best results running a 3.2fdr @ 30deg timing. I'm not sure what the difference was between ed's car and mine but while mine was easy comparable to my killshot and thunder power motors ed's looked like it was stuck in 1st gear.

Finally got to the track to test the motor out in my 12th scale. Numbers on the stator were mid 22s, rotor was about 1490.

I started out at what RedBullFiXX suggested, car came off at 170F, was 0.3 slower than D3.5 and had a higher fade at the end of the race, 0.9 vs 0.6. So I geared down to a 93mm rollout, car ran a tenth slower fast lap and still faded 0.8 at the end of the race. Track size is about 90ft x 48ft. My fast lap with a D3.5 was 11.0, fast lap with R1 11.3 by the end of the race it was a lap and a half to two laps off pace.

Any suggestions would be helpful, thanks.

Less timing, if the track is high grip and has a lot of tight turns
That was a pretty aggressive setup, but my SpeedMerchant doesn't really slow down much for corners

Ran this motor last night at rsd heads up sat race. 17.5 class, motor on a tamiya evo 5. I was able to run at leaders pace for the first race until I crashed out after a few laps. I didn't get to do much testing afterwards since the car has to be retired. Regardless with base settings this motor was competitive.

Another good reason to run these motors as you can see Steve will respond and take care of you.
