Yea it feels really smooth so far. I'll see how it does on the track
Thanks ill dremel it down a little so I don't have to worry about it.

Things to try
- ensure that your ESCs are updated with the most recent software build from ORCA
- calibrate your radio (I use KO as well) to a throttle high point of 100 for mod.
- try known mod esc profile from Andrew Hardman or Alexander Hagberg as a starter
- if the Reedy motor still exhibits some oddity; try replacing the sensor board and cable for the motor
The ORCA motor will surely be a good option. But there hasn't been any reason I have encountered that it didn't work with a Reedy motor as long as everything in the motor was is working condition.
Man I tried 2 different reedy motors. One was brand new and one was used also tried 2 new sensor wires. No matter what I did I just couldn't get it to smooth out off the low roll. At 0 degrees on the can it helped a lot but still wasn't near smooth. In stock mode there was no problem with the reedy
With the orca motor though it's really smooth.
I use the 4PKS-R and I tried calibrating it at 120,100 and 99 percent with no luck. Going to calibrate it one more time cuz I can't remember what was the last percentage I did it at. Should I do it with the throttle EPA at 120? Or 100?
The software is the V3.3 that it came with, I know a 4.0 just came out but after all this and having to by another motor I don't want to mess with it or buy anything for it lol maybe in a little while I'll grab a usb or hopefully a local guy has a usb that I can borrow
Thanks for all the advice. Hopefully it doesn't give me any problems lol
