I'm running the stock mechanical timing and "3" timing level and set point in the ESC with a 17.5 motor.

It seems pretty right and not anything like a 6.5 turn motor - especially considering my run times.

But I hear you about running too much motor.

I'm already pushing past its good natured handling with this setup and don't want to fry the plastic drive cups.

FYI for anyone who is interested in on-road cars like the Cup Racer - yeah don't wreck these things. They aren't Traxxas trucks. Basically, if you stuff the Cup Racer at top speed you will have a very bad and expensive day and you can't bring it back to your LHS and cry foul.
