Hey Hey..

That's the type of gearing that I might use at Yatabe Arena but I usually limmit it to 7.8.

Default Trinity Monster Horsepower stock motor

These Motors can make over 30,000 RPM at 7.2+ volts. What kind of RPM will a 12T make?
I think that these are better all around motors than the GM3's. They have a little more RPM, a least the same average power, and can take the over-gearing a little better without smoking. (from my experience).

To be on the safe side, start with a FDR in any T/C of around 7.5-8.0 and gear up or down depending on what the motor is telling you. Right now I'm at 7.67 in my Pro-3 and no one is pulling me on the straight but I could use a little more punch, so I'm going to try 7.9 and see if the car slows down on the straight.

I'm running a 7.3 in my Losi for foam (tight track). No one but mod cars pass me on the straight and i have plenty of infield rip. For rubber go 0.5-0.7 higher than that on a tight track.

Am TQ so far at the New Zealand On Road R/C Champs with one round of qualifying to go, using a Monster Stock. My car was probably the fastest car on the track using 5.75 gearing and no changes to the motor. The car is on the verge of dumping with 3000hv's!

what do you mean by higher as I have found that people have different meanings. I call higher gearing going lower on the final drive ratio so for your example of 7.3 going higher to me would be anything 7.2 or lower. Anything 7.4 or higher I'd assume that someone is gearing down for more punch. Is this your way of thinking too? Next week will be the first time out with this motor on carpet with rubber tire's and I want to make sure that I'm gearing it correctly. I use to run the GM3 at 6.89 on ashalt but I haven't run stock on carpet in two years. Thanks in advance for any suggestions you can give.

STLNLST... I just ran the Novak race (rubber on carpet) everyone in the expert A main (with a monster) was running between 7.5 and 7.8 for a final, or at least thats what they said I ran 7.69 and 7.83 all weekend and went with the 7.83 for the A.

ottoman- Thanks for the info. I'll keep you up to date with how it works for me. I won't get to run it until next weekend though.

Just got my Monster pro version. Has anyone tried different springs or brushes on these and has it helped? I usually run Fantom 315s on my stock motors. This motor will go into my 12th scale, where I had run green springs on both sides of a GM3.

Really, I've been pretty happy with those brushes & the red/green spring combo, the motor's efficient enough to make time(especially with 3300's in the car, so max power is now more important), but I've also tried one with all red & all purple(not sure yet if it works well, though, it's not a big difference on my dyno or in my touring car). And about guys running the Monster at the Novak race, I also ran there & I also used final drive ratios between 7.57 & 7.81 with good results(I was fast enough to make the Stock A, but I just made a couple too many driving mistakes in qualifying so I missed it by about 2 or 3 seconds)...

I ran a monster this weekend from lightspeed products and it was too good to be true for a very tight track. The overall was 8.28 with 2.370" foams and skimming the comm every 3 runs. EPIC purples on both +/-(I beleive this is where the torque came from) with 3910 lightspeed brushes. Awesome stock motor.

I've played with springs and brushes, but I keep going back to the 4499, red/green setup. It seems to give the motor its best overall power. In a Losi I am gearing 32/128 and it hauls.
