At OCRC tonight the motor was fast but felt a LITTLE slow on the straight but it came off at like 80 degrees so I'm gonna get one of those adapters and try out like a 68 spur. Jeff and I talked and thought it could be geared up like 4 teeth but theres no room on the motor guard.

That is starting to make more sense......

Ran the 2008 Orion "stock" 10.5 in my ZX5-FS on Saturday night at Pegasus. Geared at 76-27. Bumped the timing two marks since I'm running a Novak GTB. It was a rocket. Cant wait until the Nats.

Which SHO cells tend to be better? 4200, 4600 or 5300. I don't really care about the capacity, as I had no problem making the 8 minute runtime on my 12th scale with my old EP4200.

Thanx for the response. Just wondering I'm glad to hear he is still around. Hes an asset to the Rc community.

For 1/12 scale the 4600SHO's will be the best for voltage. The 5300's have allot more runtime, but less voltage.

I also am curious if the 3800 Race Spec LiPo has been submitted to ROAR. With the upcoming ROAR Region 12 race coming in October, I need to know if I can use these packs or if I should aquire some 3600s beforehand since they are approved.

In offroad the 17.5's look like are requiring a final drive ratio in the fives. A few of us just started testing the new Orion Vortex "Stock" 17.5's. This weekend will be our real shakedown time on the track. I run offroad, but at least it'll give you somewhere to start.

The 3800 isnt on ROAR's approved list yet. Not sure if its been submitted for approval as of yet either. Sorry, no help there.

I run a TC5 and my 17.5 gearing is much closer to a 4.0. Depends on track size of course. I'm anywhere from a 3.74 to a 4 at our local tracks. My Novak can take a lot of gear and never gets even close to 160*. 3.74 in 85* weather was temping at 135* after a 5 minute heat.

What size spur gears do you have?

I run an 88 64P most of the time, sometimes a 96. As you probably know mesh becomes a bit of an issue on the TC5.

3.52 = 88/50
3.74 = 88/47 (smallest I can mesh with an 88)
3.76 = 96/51
4.00 = 96/48

Typically running the Novak 17.5 with standard 12.5mm sintered rotor. I'm looking forward to trying some Orion motors. Ran last weekend with the new Orion 3800 lipo and was passing guys running the SMC packs but I anticipate I was geared better for the track conditions.
