Hi guys,

I've always used Orion brushed motors and batteries, and while I still use Orion lipos, over the past three years I've used Novak BL motors. I've been thinking about switching to Orion BL motors, but I'm wondering, do those holes in the cans allow dust and rocks to get into the rotor and windings?

Thanks,
Ken

What class are you running. I run 4wd, elec truck, and TC. I have never had any problems with dirt but I also take very good care of my cars.

I run TC. The reason I ask is, I've rarely had to open my Novak motors and therefore have become spoiled. How often do you clean out the Orion motors that you use for TC?

Ok I am new tuning brushless and after some recent found skills (packed 'em by accident and remembered them from then on ) I am looking for an Amain at the state titles, so I have the 17.5 with all the rotors how do I know which one is most suited to track when going for the first time? also timing, how do I know when to advance or retard it?

We've done testing with all the rotors and the stock ones seem to work the best. As far as timing. You need to have a gearing that keeps the temps somewhat low. Moving the timing will give the motor more bottom end if you trun it clock wise. Turning the end bell counter clockwise will give the motor more top end. These are not huge changes in proformance but they will change the temps a good amount. It's a trial by fire when you go to a new track. Take some time to get it right and learn for yourself what it does. You might only need a couple laps to feel a power differance so take a wrench with you and change it a couple times per pack but watch the temps.

Great thread, can you give me some tips on using an orion core 27T. Im new to brushed electric so you will need to keep it pretty basic.

I would think it would be the rotor size...I know for the 13.5 stock and the 13.5 race motors the difference is the rotor and the center ring says race and the other says stock..

The 13.5 stock rotor is 12.25 mm
The 13.5 race rotor is 12.3 mm
