Running a silvercan 10.5 motor in my Pro10 235MM and can tell it is as fast as the so called high end brand motors.
Good top speed and it runs a lot cooler the the LRP X12 series with the same rollout/FDR.

Regards Roy

that award is directly related to advertising dollars given to RCCA and fanboys that support the product no matter what

waiting for my Trackstar 17.5 silvercan and Trackstar 80amp turbo esc (Orion copy? we'll see) combo to arrive. Hoping that they're good for a blinky competition...

You won't be disappointed. At least in the motor. I can't speak for that ESC as I've never tried it. I have several of the 17.5 motors in various cars and they are fantastic. They are just as fast, if not faster, than their $90 counter parts. I am using a couple of 13.5T Trackstar motors and a 4.5T Trackstar. They're all awesome.

I just installed one of these 17.5 motors into an on road sedan. I'm about to head to the tracks to test it out!

Thanks, I have here a 90$ ORCA 17.5 that I will be comparing to, we'll see...

So I did several runs with the Turnigy 17.5 today.

Compared to a revtech 17.5 with HT rotor, the Turnigy has less torque (of course) but the speed is fantastic. Faster than the revtech on the straight. I ran the fastest lap that I've ever run on this track setup with the Turnigy motor.

Heat wise, I was able to gear much taller than the revtech. On the revtech with HT, I was geared at 4.02 and two ticks from full timing and was coming off the track at 140f. The Turnigy I was able to gear at 3.8 with two ticks from full and came off at 150. I'm gonna experiment with the gearing a bit more. I noticed I can't get to full timing though. It stops at two ticks from full because of the end bell design. I'm gonna try to dremel it out a bit and see if I can find the perfect gearing.

I really like the motor. It's very smooth, especially when compared to a HT rotor. At just $37 shipped, it's absolutely a steal for the value. With some dialin in, it could absolutely be just as fast as any other motor in the market.

Runs cool and fast. Can't complain!

As do I, they have great power & speed and can handle heat better than any other brand of motor I have owned. And if you do smoke one like I did (way too much turbo added in esc), it's less painful than doing the same to a more expensive motor.

Cheers
Rob.

Is it common for these motors not to be able to go to full timing without modding?

Like I said earlier, my motor won't allow me to go past 2 ticks from the full timing.

Yes, it seems that all these motors stop 2 ticks away from full timing, not sure if this is a design fault or something to help protect the motors, as the 2 that I have are both the same.
