Hey Guys,
I had a good day of racing yesterday. I held TQ in stock foam before losing it in the 3rd round by about a second after i bobbled twice. I had a good start to the main but it turned ugly lol. Had a good day overall yesterday with EA Roar Stockers.

Like Shook I had some heat problems, but I think I have have the gearing sorted out. - it isn't heating up as fast anyway

30p / 124s / 1.77 igr / 59.5mm td

I also found the motor to be sick fast with a about a 1" (25.3 mm) rollout. And I do mean SICK!!!!! .

Happy as a clam with the motor, but Shook's story has me wondering about the future.

</DrXinDenver>
Generally we run about a .95 rollout on carpet....this is for a med-large track...SO maybe a 1.0 may still be pushing it unless the track is very large.

This is also with full face brushes. If you knock some off the edges of the brush it will drop the amp draw and rpm but raise torque, power and eff. So when you trim the edges you can run a slightly higher ratio.

The roar stocks are picky on gear but they are fast once found!!

Have any of you guys seen or used the new orion stock motor bushings. They are reamed out significantly and they removed material from the inner hole for less friction. They look very cool but, I wonder how they'll work?

Hi Eric, I have a question for you.
Have you considered doing 19t motors based on the orion element V2?

Just querying it, as i'm looking for a fairly low maintence 19t to put into my 12th when it arrives.

BTW, Monster ran really well today, seems to respond well to being skimmed after each run Was running on a tight outdoor track, most were gearing at about 6.5 or so. I stuck myself at 6.8 and was really flying, pulled real strong with good top speed, can't ask for anymore than that

Later
Ed

Don't worry if you got a good ratio stick to it and write it on your motor....It helps....That is why I have a sharpie in my pit box.
Roar stock like it warm...but not hot...My problem was I didn;t have time to get a good ratio together before the racing began...Let alone give the Comm a cut before the main....It was very fast passed racign yesterday....The Motor was fantastic...I wasn't.
Hope this helps

ahhh, I was at Coastal MRC today, not Stafford, that was too far to travel ('bout 3hours by my reckoning) for just a days racing. Thought i might as well get some outdoor practise in whilst up in that region, so went there instead. Actually ended up 2 o/a in the A-final, so not a bad day at all

Gotta love the BD with its tray system...No way to loose your cells unless your a knuckle head and do something wrong.

throw it at me if you want

anyone run the ROAR indoors? i was comparing the numbers on my new monster and ROAR yesterday and it appears the ROAR still has more torque than the monster at the low end of the power band but yet still has more RPM (and a tiny bit less torque) at the top end...and is more efficient

so wouldn't it be a better motor overall..where ever i use it?
