Default KO Propo Race running 23T...? :)

Is it correct that the KO Propo race is running a 23T class?

Just wondering what people who have been practicing for it thought of the motors....faster then a nice CO27 but not as fast as a 19T? Are they bearings?

Nice to see more races trying something different then stock 27T.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

Properly tuned, then it will leave the 19T in the dust...

So given the slots, is it better to grease it than to oil the bushing?

23T motors are fun to run and race with. Akuhon is right, if tuned properly, it is fast. These motors are a bit tricky though. Each 23t motor needs to know what gear ratio fits with it properly and experimenting the right brushes for it.

Orion Katana series 23T come with slot bushing. HPI R2 also come with slot bushing. They are similar but I prefer Katana better. Some of my teammate using Luna and Atlas, they don't have slot bushing, but still perfer quite well.

Actually, HPI R2 is just the same as Katana. It is also an Orion Katana but tuned by HPI. Another motor with serated bushing is Alex Racing Flatout 23T.

I'm looking into one of these for my 12th scale.. When I run 19 turn its' a little difficult to keep the car off of the barriers but with a stock motor it's a little weak on the straight and in the infield... So which 23T would perform somewhere between a Komodo and a Cobalt 27??
