The mod motors are a beast. My 5.0t has way too much power but is super smooth. I typically gear 1 tooth taller then most 5.0t and it still has nice low end but flys on the top.

Has anyone updated to 4.0 on their VXX? I updated, but want to go back to 3.3 and its not on the orca website to download. So i can't go back to it. If anyone has the 3.3 file could they send it to me.

Was wondering if the speed of the orca 10.5tx is comparable to other motors with the same turns(kv). Thanks for any feedback

I have an orca 10.5 tx I just picked up for a Short course late model spec class on a new dirt oval. Was wondering if any one has ran this motor. All I am seeing is talk about the higher turn motors. Was wondering if a 60 amp speed control could handle this motor

I believe it comes with the standard rotor which is a 12.5mm rotor which is stronger then ,pst High torque rotors. It will be more then enough for the buggy. I am using the 5.0T and it is considerably faster then other 5 turn motors.

I dropped the 8.5 in my Xray XB-4 and guys are constantly asking if it's a 6.5. Damn thing even keeps up with the 1/8th E buggies

Anyone recommend a starting point for gearing FDR in 4wd 1/10th buggy on medium size indoor track for the ORCA TX 7.5Turn , also my motor came with the endbell timing at one mark below the 10 , so on the negative side of 10 is that normal?
I was wondering if they have much internal true timing in them or not so as to know if its safe to leave my ESC timing at its default of 18.75 deg (SP Reventon MOD0 software)

Can anyone tell me if the programming card is required to tune a VX-1? I'd be running in blinky anyway, but curious if spending the extra money for the card up front is worth it. Thanks!

Yepp Adam, it is. I have both the updater and the program card whenever you need it. You'll need to update to 4.1 for my card to work for you...so bring a laptop
