Nice going Bill!!

What is the difference between SPEC and STOCK motors?
Will you offer in near future 9,5?

Thank you in advance for reply.

hey joe. what do you recommend for timing on the 17.5 in both 1/12 and touring. my local track everyone runs the trinity duo motor and they seem to be a tick faster with the same gearing. i got the timing the way it comes in the box which i assume is 0 degrees. just trying to find the sweet spot with these motors cause i always run orion products thanx

I have a 10.5 race and I noticed that when I turn the motor over by hand the magnet bump is strong then week. The feeling is every other bump. Does the rotor need replacing. It has came off the track a few time on the hot side. My 13.5 does not do this, it feels like a normal brushed motor with strong magnet bump each time.

What kind of temps did it come off at?

About 245 or so. I still ran it all weekend and did not feel under powered. I just geared it down a few more teeth than I had it geared in practice. I just did not know if that was a sign of a damaged rotor or not.

The motor should never get over 160-175. At 200 pluse I would say that you need a new one.

Ouch...... Just keep an eye on it. If it is still performing well, then go with it. If it starts to fall off then you know you damaged it. Like Ray said, we try and stay below 180. Bet it was a missile when it was geared up though......

With all the different rotors available what is the best choice for 1/10 off-road truck, and yes it was crazy fast. That should have been my first clue to check the temp after a couple of minutes of running. I had not run at this track before.

Kinda depends on the track your running on. Surface plays a major role. But for the most part, we tend to use a larger rotor for the truck. Helps with getting it out of the hole a little better since they weigh more. However, at the Reedy Race this weekend, we used a smaller rotor and it seemed to run better.

Yea, if you ever think that the motor is stoopid fast while your running, just pull it off and make sure your temping o.k. just to make sure. Better to be safe then sorry.

Hi Guys,

What's a good starting ratio for the 13.5 Stock spec motor in TC, medium track and high grip ?

Also with the purple tuning rotor can you go up a tooth or two like the novak ones ?

Hello I am not Joe nor do I work or run for orion. Advance your timing 2 degrees should really help. The people who run the orion 17.5's at my local track do this. I know this is late but hopefully this has helped you.

Peace Aaron(W-W)
