Yes, they are much faster. I did back to back comparison with a d3 and a newer revtech and the plutonium motors outrun both of them buy a decent amount.

Reducing the timing will make it feel softer coming out of the turns and will not have quite the top end that it has now.

Thanks Randy for the info!! So under what circumstances wouild you guys run negative timing on the motor endbell? Other than to bring down the motor temps.

I wouldnt run more then the -1 position as with the new sensor board they have bee putting in the motors, that is actually the "absolute zero" position. No problem! Just let one of us know if you need anymore help, more then happy to!

As Craig said, 3.5-4.5 depending on track size, I run a 100x48 track locally and Im using a 4.0 FDR with max endbell timing. For blinky racing it seems that max endbell timing is the only way to go, then you just gear for the temps you need and usually it works out great. Full timing on these motors is 60* Each "hash" mark is 12* positive or negative depending on which direction you you turn it, as on any motor. Hope this help!

-Randy

A good average would be anywhere between 135 and 150 for smaller tracks, I pushed mine to 160 average outside just to be able to run faster. The motors have been designed very well and you can push them to upwards of 220 and simply replace the rotor and it'll be just like new!

boost- 48
turbo- 10
ramp- 2
throttle profile- 4
delay- 0.1
start- 5k
end- 20k

FDR- 6.84
endbell timing- +2.5



hope this helps

So I'm thinking of replacing my D3.5 with a Team powers 17.5. It will be for boosted .Do these motors fade if the get a bit hot? Does a fdr of 6.65 sound good or should I try something else. It will be on a Speed Passion GT2 pro.

I smoked a motor yesterday during practice (At Tamiya America) and a friend of mine allowed me to borrow his V1 Team Powers Plutonium. I geared the motor at 3.25, set it on the track for the first round of qualifying, and wow, it had some good rip!

I had the timing set at 2 on the can, but with more tuning, the motor could have been even better, which is hard to imagine.

Does anybody know where I can find these motors in the US?
