the best motors are the FREE ones

yok LT would be my preferred choice, ST would be slightly tamer. Where is JDM when we need him most

The last MNC (which was a disaster for me ), I was using a SR motor for the stock race. I was lost as to finding a suitable ratio. Any suggestions?

i was switching between atlas toyomiti ed. & yok sr during that race. Can't quite remember which i used for final tho. Some st were pushed to about 5 flat. SR at abt 5.5 there. Too bad atlas stops producing toyomiti. Ima hunting for either team luna or team tectro if i'm into 8-min run

Yup, quite a few also told me they were using 5.0 Maybe that's why I was so slow The best I tried was 5.8, lower than that bogged down the motor. Maybe my batts were also not up to the IB's +1.2V

what katana series are you running? i thought they were geared around 6.0. 5.22 should be very fast or very hot.

I'm doing Orion Katana2/HPI R2 (they are identical motor, just different label) TLF series only right now. The Luna Glory Legend FH-L2 is the tuned version of TLF. I'm going to try TSF series soon as JMRCA open adjustable timing for standup brush.

If it's racing and you are in spot to win something, change brush for max performance. If it's normal day, use sandpaper to cleanup brush, runin, play again, until brush get too short causing problem.
