Thumbs up team orion katana 23 turn motors

do you guys know the difference among the different team orion katana 23 turn motors? there's SL, SS, TL, and one more (i forgot the name of 4th one )

i got the TL version and the instructions are in japanese. it has a laydown brush (i think the other versions are available in both laydown and standard brushes)

i tested the katana TL a couple of weeks ago on my CGM, 98/37 64p gearing on a short technical track (about 11-12 sec laptimes) and it seemed faster than my prism and type TZ. im still experimenting on gearing so if you guys already ran this motor, kindly post gearing advice. thanks in advance for any info

Default G Style Gm10012 G stock 2004 version

Recently ordered these 23 stocker and would like to know if this motor is good. Is it more on rpm or torque? Thanks.

ST=Standup Torque
SS= Standup Speed/RPM
TL=Laydown Torque
SL=Laydown Speed/RPM

and you would gear any of these very close to Yokomos T-MAX 23T motors(newer 3mm core ones)....now as for a gear ratio for the TL I would try for a 5.8-6.0 final drive...and then gear to the sound of the motor on the straight..

Any one of the 3 G-Style 23T stocks will be fine..... the one you bought..is a Stand up RPM one that likes to be geared in the 6.2 range... lots of RPM with this one....

thanks for the info, dave

btw, any dyno info on these motors for reference (just like tamiya type TZ and RZ have their rpms and torque on the boxes)?

I've geared Katana TS 5.3 at one of my local circuit track and my TC3 was running at a blistering pace and I love the amount of torque and RPM this motor has!! and my buddies suspected and sworned that I'm running modified.

This is the track I'm talking about.

Thats about perfect gearing for a TS on that size of track.... Lots of rip with these motors

So far, It's the T-Max that consistently won our races here. This is because this is readily available locally. So far we've tested the HPI, Tamiya and Prism. Personally, am happy with the T-Max. We know there are good motors but we can't buy it locally. Like Katana, etc.....

Its a newly opened track similar to the one in Full Throttle Florida. Currently this track is the happening track in Kuala Lumpur. The best part is that it opens right upto very late ......12 midnite...1/10 GP!!

Sometimes we would gearup our EP with brushless setup to have a "showdown" with the GP boys. It does even things up a bit but the GP's acceleration is awesome on the straight and we "shine" in the infields.
