Actually 33.5mm is pretty conservative...it will pull bigger gears on larger tracks outdoors. I have run FDR's in the 5.4-6.00 range depending on track size.

About the brush hoods. There is nothing wrong with the Orion standard brush hoods other than they are too precise. Brushes can vary in size from production run to production run. The Trinity XXX's I have now fit really tight so I have to open the hoods a bit. The good thing is that this reduces brush cocking for more power.

On my Trinity motors I spend a lot of time tweaking my brush hoods to get them straight and to tighten them up on the brushes. You don't have to do that to Orion or Reedy motors.

Likely to be what the issue was. Thanks for clearing it up Adrian.

I would start out 4 teeth higher than with a Komodo and you will probably be a little under geared. At our carpet track the Komodo guys run a 31mm roll out.

wyl03 - Any of Trinity's non overhead springs will fit (like on Trinity mod motors).

Also Peak and Orion are pretty much the same company. Like GMC and Chevy. The Peak Vantage 19 and Orion Element 19 are the same motor.
Something Adrian and I will agree on is these motors are silly fast geared right! The main thing you'll notice is the magnets dont drop off.
I won back to back state championships with them in 12 scale,. Alsotq'ed a few races and won a couple in sedan 19t with Peak dynasties with regular laydown bushes. xxx's and blk springs! .
