Just kidding, I found some that fit. It was quite odd though. Some of the shim really were too small to fit onto the shaft.

I removed the o-ring completely and added what looks like a .3 or a .5mm (I'm leaning towards .3mm) and it was exactly the amount of play I thought was necessary. Thanks for the tips!

No problem, good luck.

Is the 12.5 rotor the only tuning rotor available or is there others?

Can someone clarify what rotor comes with the V1 13.5 and 17.5 motors ? The TP website says motors between 10.5 and 17.5 come with 12.3 but I see ads for 17.5 motors with both 12.3 and 12.5. If that's the case...what are the item numbers for the motors with 12.3 ? What are the item numbers for those with 12.5 rotors ?
Maybe someone could lead me to a dealer site that actually has some defined info ??

All of the spec motors have 12.3mm rotors installed.

Which motor would you run in 17.5 1/12, the 12.3 or 12.5 rotor and rollout/timing for a 80x36 semi technical track?

What would be a good rotor to increase power in the 13.5?

For me, the Team Powers 13.5 was underwhelming with the 12.5mm rotor.

I race on asphalt and find the included 12.3mm rotor to be superior to the 12.5.

I generally crank the timing, gear it between 4.4 and 4.6 and it's golden. The motor pulls very well and has great top end.

Don't race indoor much but I am getting ready for Snowbirds. What is everyone running for a good 17.5 Carpet motor setup with the V1? I have always had good success with shimming the the stock motor properly and everything being really good. Is the Bigger rotor a lot better on carpet or should I stick with the stock setup?

I think that generally you'd want a high torque rotor on the small/medium sized carpet tracks so you can get more rip in the infield rather than bolting down the straight.

If you have a pretty dialed setting though, I'm sure that's just as good

Does anyone know where to order parts for the Team Powers motors? I need a new end bell for a v2 (although I think a v1 end bell would fit) and I can't, for the life of me, find out where to order one.

We will be carrying Team Powers motors and parts on our Web site soon. We do have the V2 sensor board in stock.

Oops, just noticed you said end bell. I will check to see if I have any available.

Cool, I'll be waiting to see if you have one in stock.

4,4 and 4,6 fdr for 13,5 boosted? I'm running 6,4 fdr for 13,5 boosted sedan and it' s already hot, around 100celsius, no acceleration too against competitor.
