Superior had one left, and a sintered rotor.

You have to gear it quite a bit higher, though, so make sure you've got the pinions & spurs to make that happen.
How much higher any starting point? i'm at 5.4 with the SS Pro and stock sintered rotor now. My LRP I was at 5.1. Are you taking like mid 4.'s??

Gear it like your LRP/sintered to start out, then adjust it from there. It should be a similar gearing.

Brushless is pretty easy, really. Keep gearing up until your lap times aren't any faster, or until you're getting the motor so hot it goes into thermal shutdown. If you're doing things right, you shouldn't get it that hot. Every 13.5 I've ever seen will stop getting faster long before it starts getting too hot. Generally, if they shutdown, something is wrong, like a binding drivetrain. I personally try to keep the motor only geared as high as it needs to be to be at its fastest, and don't go any higher even if I've got room for more based on heat alone. It tends to just use more juice, and drop the battery's voltage faster, especially toward the end of the race.

Also, a seized bearing in the motor will cause it to thermal if you're lucky, and completely melt down if you're not.

Oh ya...loud and clear. I learned that running several Mamba Max's. You keep gearing till you find the point of diminished return (heat goes up faster then speed)...then back down a tooth or 2. Less if the track / use does not require, to save battery and voltage.

A temp gun or calibrated finger is critical in BL.

So JB...you going to SIR tonight?? Maybe I cant wait for my 13mm via mail...and I see you want to sell 1.
