It is a definite part from the outside of can and not rotor.

You're definitely right about not coming from the rotor because as mentioned earlier,it is about the a quarter size of the circumference of motor can.

It fell out from the motor can when I pulled apart so definitely somewhere from within. But where does it go back is the question.

when you opened the can (shaft side) first did it come from that side or the other (which is the endbell side)

I 'll have to open one of my LRP to check what it can be, except if someone has an answer for you first.

It came from the shaft side,not the endbell.

I can't imagine trying to put it back because when I open the motor can,the shim immediately zapped to the rotor. That's another reason why I can't see where it was original from.

Normally I'm quite careful about disasseblimg parts but maybe not this time!

Did you remove the rotor to check inside?

What is the best temperature to keep 12x 13.5t at so it does not fade

I had a set up that ran 175-180 and faded badly, when I went down to 150-155 the fade stopped. Was running 1/12th with a Black Diamond V1 on 5, 2 dot insert and 71.5 rollout. Had to go to 4 dot insert, 62 rollout, and open the scoop in my AMR to get there.

Mobile suit, you need to glue this part at the top, right in the center of the gap, i glue with cyano, without problem.

Here, with 4 dot insert go up to 190+ without fade.

RedBullFiXX: many thanks again

luic: it seems CA is the magic cure for this,thank you

Still wondering why they have it at first place and it would be good if LRP could update their instruction manual to show this too.

I'm guessing these shims only appear in the Octa Wind version?

Yes, only in Octa, and basically, to have more magnetic power (over copper), need more iron core, sorry my english is not good, and less for explain technicians.

Yes, to agree and elaborate, these shims simply lay on the end of the stator stack. There was probably three of these in the motor, one for each side of the stator stack.

Default 17.5 Blinky

Is the consensus still a FDR of 4.0 with 4 dot for 17.5 Blinky TC?
