Brian, I ended up with white side springs up front to match the track, but the car is back on rails. To those running a CRC, Look back and use the setup as a starting point. They are spot on!

I'm running one of the V2 Trackstar motors and it has a 12.3mm rotor in it. Trying to play inexpensive. It runs fairly cool, but I can't get any bottom end out of it no matter if I go up or down on timing and from to 2 to 2.5 FDR. Lap times pretty much stay about the same and all that changes is heat in the motor. The motor does have great top end though. I could drive this thing all day, but it's costing me at least 5 tenths a lap on a 17 second a lap circuit. I've come to the conclusion the 12.5mm torque rotor is the best choice for pushing our 1025g cars around. I've ordered some 12.5mm torque rotor/short stack motors as Hobbyking doesn't currently offer tuning rotors, but wondering what everyone else is finding and ultimately using in their cars. We, about 12 of us now, all end up putting in between 2100 and 2300 mAh back into our batteries after an 8 minute run, so we aren't over loading the systems.

What motor, FDR or rollout and timing do you like and what temps are you getting? I don't think there is any one magic bullet. Certain motors are snappier and run cooler longer.

You mean like these.

Please take note that the one I listed is not legal for spec type motors but they have a 7.25 listed that is.

I believe the V2 motors come with a 12.5 rotor the same as I listed so it would only be a replacement rotor & only a difference in strength. But at that price I might get a couple. The one that came in my motors are all right at 1500 on the trinity rotor checker.

Confirmed. I can't read.

I ordered new rotors for my v2 motors last week and they arrive this past Monday. Although they are still coming from the int warehouse, deliveries have been pretty quick lately. Maybe 7 working days?
For $15 each, I didn't mind the additional shipping charges.

At some point, I though I read that the V2 motors were considered a short stack design which would explain the lower bottom end and higher top end you are experiencing. The stronger rotor should wake it up though.
I typically run my stock spec V2 motors between 38 and 43 degrees on 2s.
I should have some Dyno data as soon as I finish my test system.

My screws were shipped Dec 15 & the tracking number is still not even active. LOL,It will probably take the full 45 days.

Does anyone know the size? I can order some somewhere else. Not complaining. then I can run the motor.
