Bolt it in and wire it up!

Go racing, easy as that.

Then you will have some benchmark for your preference.

Hi James
Make sure you do not over gear it. They have problems with keeping the wires on.Keep the Spring/brush Tube clean. When you pull the trigger on you will see a light in the Endbell, there is a motor capacitor in the endbell with the light to tell you the motor is working fine . If the light does not come on at any time,there is a problem with the motor there is a problem with the motor.Try running the motor at 6 degrees( one line ) advance first and how it goes.
I love the motor's,Great design.
What model and wind are you using?
Good luck
Best wishes for Christmas.

the shottky diode can be placed closer to the ESC, some people say its not as effective, but i think it doesn't matter. The shottky diode is used to protect the esc actually... (at least to my knowledge). For me 12 degrees of timing works best, (best speed/torque) for my track, but it does wear brushes fast.

Happy Racing (and Merry Christmas!)

dont overtighten the endbell, the aluminium can sometimes bend a bit and put unecessary strain on the motor.

How long did you break it in for?
What amp did you run it at to break it in?

from what Joe Pillar told me during indoor champ the regular V2 endbell with the regular sprint brush. 1v break in for 10min. with the new OSJ endbell with the new 3.8mm sprint brush 1v break in for 15min. normally after i clean my motor and cut the com i just break in the motor after that i just run my motor without doing this process again take apart the motor to fully clean on internal,do same light cut on the comm,reoil the bearing.
