That's weird...the DUO 10.5 is supposed to have sintered rotors. Check out their website and see the specs...

About the 13.5, you do have to increase timing on them. Start from a 5.0FDR and work your way down a tooth at a time and increase timing...they should be fast.

Felix LAw reported the 10.5BL Trinity DUO was really fast, used by Tony Padilla, if I'm not mistaken...Maybe someone can ask him to comment here about the motor and what gearing and timing he'd recommend to get them be fast.

But the motors are still wayyyy slow, Come on trinity get us some sintered rotors so these motors can run.
What are you gearing your 13.5 at? What timing?

I had mine rolled out at 1.65-1.75 (6cell sedan 84x40 carpet track) and it was slow all aroung, the 13.5 doesn't have adjustable timing. I think the only way to add timing to it would be to break out the dremel, but then the removable harness will get in the way. If I geared it up from there it just got hot.
