I think they are identical motors from the same manufacturer....


anybody have a recommended FDR for the 4.5
other than what Orion recommends?

Hi joep

Since you have experience with both motors, what are your impressions about how they compare on energy consumption?

Is the orion more thirstier?

Thanks

I timed the Vortex back I wasn't getting more than 4 minutes drive time.
After doing that the motors are comparable. But the Vortex has more punch. In respect to maintenance the Vortex is superieur. It's all metal and you can take the sensor out.

Ok, thanks Joep.

I was asking because i have a speedpassion 3,5 (wich i guess must be very similar to orion), but i cant seem to make the runtime. Next race i will try to lower the timming.

I have serious runtime issues with 3,5, but all my packs are 1 year old.

But i guess it depends on track. One of the tracks i race is for 1/8 gas. 400 m long. I remember i made 5.30 m runtime even with fresh packs

Smaller track + less traction = more run-time .

I think Joep usually run on big 1/8 outdoor gas car tracks, main straights can be 80 metres+, the cars hit 60mph+, and gears to the moon.
