Where did you purchase it through? All repairs must go through ORCA in Canada. I can email you the contact information for them as well.

I ended up purchasing it through my local hobby store Speedtech Hobbies in CA.

I have a 7.5t orca tx motor and it is really hard for me to drive in offroad, will increasing the timing on the can a bit soften the low end rip? . Currently its at default how it came at one mark bellow 10 into the minus range.
Ive tryed punch settings and epa and expo and slipper , but im hoping that this may soften down the rip of the motor, any idea's welcome

Turning the timing up will cause it to have more power. Turn the timing down and over gear the motor a couple of teeth. This is what I usually do in lower grip conditions in off road. Gear it so you can just make the largest jumps without over shooting it.

Hey everyone!

As I've recently joined the ORCA team I'll be replacing my current motors with ORCAs and am wondering about rotor selection.

I currently run TC Stock (17.5), 12th Stock (13.5) and WGT (10.5). I run a D4 with a torque rotor in TC, standard D4 in 12th and a KillShot Beast in WGT.

My understanding is the stock rotor with the TX motors is already a higher torque than the stock rotor from other companies so I can just run the standard 17.5 TX in TC Stock.

How about 1S 12th and WGT? Standard Rotor again or another option?

Also - are ceramic bearings worth the upgrade in all the motors?

Cheers!

Luke

Luke,

Seeing you are going to be running ORCA motors, I suggest that you get EA's take on ceramic bearings.

The RX3 motors just came out so I would wait for that, they are running it at the IIC so I would wait for their feedback!
