It was a good balance.

Depends on size of track, but I would start around 4.7, max timing.

Tried the Plutonium motor this past weekend and am definitely impressed. Great performance characteristics on both low and high end ranges.

Default Facts Machine 2 (FM2)

Got my FM2 motor checker from Fantom last night and my Team Powers 21.5 made another hit. My store bought motor has the lowest core resistance of any other 21.5 motor that I had. Some were close, but the TPS was the best. So lets summarize: best on the Fantom Facts Machine II dyno, best on the Trinity Motorlyser, best on the Facts Machine2 motor checker (CORE IR ONLY), and pretty darn good on the track too. I'm a fan.

Makes sense, we had a guy last race run the Powers 21.5 in our 17.5 sedan class and did very well
