Hi guys, hoping you can help. I am running my first brushless motor, the Orion 10.5 Stock with an LRP TC Speedie. Chassis is an Xray t2'007, rubber tyres on an outdoor asphalt, medium grip track which could probably be considered more technical than flowing. Batteries are still Nimh at this stage.

I was looking for some help with gearing and perhaps speedie setup. The other guys at my track are running LRP motors and with the same gearing appear to have a lot more speed than I do. Currently running a 78/27 mix - motor is still cool although it was a very cold night and I am using a heatsink/fan combo on the motor. Wondering whether I can continue to gear up with this motor, or does it prefer to be geared low?

Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

I have the same car you have, T2 007 EU with the 10.5 set up at a semi
technical asphalt track. The best gearing I've tried is the 78/30 and my
temp is stable at 135 deg. after a 5 mins. race. We also race at nights
by the way! I would upgrade to the Orion 3800 Lipos and you'll see
a big difference in punch and top speed! Hope this helps! Cheers!

Thanks mate. I was worried that I might be taking the gearing too high so it's good to know you run that without problem. Our next meet is a day meeting, so I might try taking it up a tooth each heat and check the temps. We'll probably go to Lipo's next year - I race with two of my sons so making any tech change becomes expensive.

Hello Joe,

My T2 007 car got hit on the side last night during the race and my Orion 3800 Lipo's
casing cracked. Is there any way I can send this back to you guys and put a new casing?
This is only 2 weeks old! It's still working fine except now it's got tape all over it.
I just want to know how much would it cost me for you to put
a new casing on one of my cracked 3800 Lipo? Thanks!

Any insight on trying to get my 4800 to take a charge.

I didn't think I let it get too low, but i tried charging w/ a balancer and i get an error of NO BATTERY DETECTED.


thoughts?

Can you check the pack with a volt meter too see what the voltage of the pack is? Allot of the time if the voltage is below 6 then the charger doesnt always read the battery.

My first thought is that your pack is balanced and the balancer shuts off before you start the charge. This happened to me with my 3600 lipo, ICE charger and Orion balancer. I rarely balance the packs now but when I do I just do them in the "disconnection" mode.

Default Orion 17.5...Goooooooooooood motor!

For the KO Propo Grand Prix at Speeedworld yesterday, I pulled out my handout Orion 17.5 (from the IIC) to use in my Phi car. Qualified fourth in the A main against mostly Novak motors. A first turn accident (my fault from not breaking in my new tires...sorry guys) demoted me to near last place. But, my Orion helped me get back up behind second to finish third overall by the end of the run. Gooooooooooooood motor!
