We have been using them locally (WCRC) at 3.6 with timing at the screw. I run my timing center of the screw.

We have not run much with boosted but I can find out a good starting gear ratio. Bob S. ran them but our local track has gone non-boosted for 17.5.

Rick, would you advance the timing on the motor and add some via the speed control (i have a stock spec v2)? I have never messed with timing on the motor. Thanks.

Timing depends on the class. For modifieds, I would advance the timing to two bars right out of the package and tune with the ESC timing and gearing. For the 13.5 non-boosted I would start with 4 bars and 17.5 non-boosted even higher.

Our big class is 13.5 and we can run whatever timing we want. I have ran the orion 13.5 and just ran timing through the speed control, never messes with the motor. I guess i will start with the 2 bars and a bit of timing in the speedo. Thanks.

Rick, what rotor would you recommend for blinky 17.5 touring and 12th scale?
Thanks

Probably no more than a 17 tooth pinion.

The rotor that comes in the motor is the best option for TC, we haven't run any 12th yet so hard to know but the #954 rotor might help top end.

Is there any chance that Reedy will be able to supply the Stator's separately, like Novak, so we can rebuld motors that have been overheated?

Thanks
