They don't update their list that often. You'll find the approval on the ROAR forum though.

Does the aluminum back plate offer any advantage other than cosmetic? How about the aluminum fan, is it more powerful?

Ive answered this question no less than a dozen times. The "list" you all are looking at is for the old approval system. Anything done on the new type of approval system is all located in the forum section. The motors have been legal since last year.

It will dissipate a little more heat as well. The fan is quieter and moves a little more air.

No scheduled ETA yet on them as far as I know. Im pretty sure the speedo is finished but they dont want to release it until the motor is finished up.

How far can I push the timing on this motor? Is there a limit?

I'm at 3.4~3.5 mm past the mark with my 21.5 motor running 2 cell 1/12.

I also picked up a D3.5 21.5 and wondering what timing settings that would match or come close to my ORCA 21.5.

I've been running the motor timing around 3.5 past the mark and has mad power. So much so, everyone at my track was wondering if I was running boost. They didn't believe me until I showed them my speed control was set in "blinky mode".

21.5 motor has crazy crazy power for my 1/12.

BUT the standard strength rotor is stronger than a Trinity 12.5HT rotor. So keep that in mind when comparing.
