Looking for suggestions on gearing and motor timing a 21.5t TX motor in an F1. I'll be running blinky on an asphalt track approx. 170' x 65'.

I've also noticed the rotor strength when turning the motor by hand feels a lot stronger than other 21.5s I have. It feels like trying to turn a mod motor. Is this normal for the TX?

Does anyone have a Offroad 2wd setup? for RC10B4.2

Im running a Reedy Sonic 7.5t 20* timing and a LRP X20 7.5t 27.5* timing.

Yes to the way it feels. Mine is the same way. It's the torquiest 21.5 I have used. I would think you could prob gear higher on your f1 then with a normal motor. If you gear It normal you might get too much low end and have trouble keeping it straight on acceleration. With a taller gear you could tame the low end down but gain some rpm. When used in my USGT it was geared much taller then the others I have tried.

I ran mine at 1.5mm past the last notch. Which according the EA was right about 50*-55* motor timing.

What FDR range do you use for USGT with that timing?

Need some help on timing & rollout suggestions for the Orca tx 17.5 for 1/12 blinky. Track size is similar to Vegas

Is there anything online that explains the adjustments on the VXX other than the paper manual?

I used the 17.5 TX motors in my buggy and short course truck this weekend at the Spektrum race. I did end up in the A of short course but couldn't pull it off in buggy. I had some top 10 runs but when you tallied up the points I was on the outside looking in. Oh well...I wasn't disappointed in the motors performance at all!
