Maybe this has been asked before, but can't find the info.

Is the RX3 17.5t motor ROAR approved?

I found the TX and RX2, but can't find the RX3 on ROAR's approval list or in their forum for 17.5 approvals

Interesting. The RX3 mod motors are not on the approved list either. I've been using an RX3 4.5 for the past month and I was thinking about getting a 17.5 as well. I guess my 4.5 technically isn't ROAR legal, but do we really even need approvals for modified motors? At least the local tracks I go to don't care about what we use in mod, because it simply doesn't matter. Wouldn't make any difference in lap times.

Anyway, it doesn't appear the RX3s are approved yet, so I'll probably wait a bit before picking up an RX3 17.5.

They were submitted and passed all the inspection process back in Sept. Just waiting on ROAR to actually put them up on their site as usual. Trying to get them to update the list is like trying to make a 8 year old go to bed on Christmas eve!

Because the alternative is spending huge sums of money on motors to be competitive. The system is broken but it is the best system we have so far.

Got myself a brand new ORCA battery through TQ racing (factory sealed). ESC started smoking after plugging it in, who sees the issue:



The decals were flipped around (unfortunately I did not see the markings on the case till it was too late).

I'd contact TQracing and have them replace it.

I just sent an email to ORCA about your issue and how to resolve it for you. They may post here or email me back and I will let you know what they say.

I dont believe TQ will do anything for you as it wasnt their fault as they dont package or label the products.

Thanks

Mostly just want to remember how to calibrate and how to set the program box.

Can I just use the VXX instructions?

Yes sir. The VXX is the same. On your next order I can send a set of VX3 instructions if you still need them. But all the adjustments are the same and calibration procedure is the same. Turn radio on, hold full brake, turn speedo on and beep beep, full throttle, beep beep, then neutral, beep beep. Then its done.

ROAR's website sure does seem to have the software versions mixed up on the posting for approved blinky ORCA ESCs on their website.
