Your still gonna want the 4 dot insert, but probably closer to 80-85mm rollout as you said you were using. On the tekin, not too sure. Id probably go with these esc settings to start

What is the best timing insert to use when racing 13.5 boost?
I'm using a viper vtx10 Esc
And what Esc boost settings should I use...

I need help!!



The other day I had the lower bearing blow apart on me during a race and now I can't get the outer race out of the can. What do you guys use to get them out when a bearing blows apart?

Heat the bearing shield up.
The shield will let the bearing loose when heated as the bearing it self won't expand that much.

Which way do the timing inserts go in ? Dots facing out ? if so do they go on top or on the bottom ? Or does it even matter .

This U Tube video will give you visual indication on which way the inserts go and how it affects timing -

what's safe to spray inside the entire motor? obviously the sensor board can't, but what is safe to spray with motor cleaner? blasting any part with compressed air isn't going to do the best job in taking the dirt away.

When I need to do something like that, I use electronic contact cleaner. Red spray can from the automotive section of WallyWorld.

Default General question

Hello all, I have a question about the motor turns.
I will be racing modified outdoor on rubber tires in the summer with a tamiya 417 on a 100+ foot track and I was wondering if getting a 2.5 or 3.5 is a mistake because all I see is people running 4.0t. or 4.5t
This will be for club racing so the competition is not intense and my goal is to focus/enjoy/learn to drive the most powerful car on the track. So if the 2.5 acutally works I would go for it.
However, if the lexan bodies could collapse under the windpressure or the car lifts up or the tires spin/drift because the torque is too high or the engine overheats because of the extra breaking I would like to know before purchasing a very low turn engine.
Has anyone had issues with low wind motors?
Or if anyone has raced with a 2.5t and has some pointers that would be much appreciated.

Under 4.5 turns it s totaly useless. If you want more topspeed just set your ESC

Default way too much power

2.5 is way too much power..
you will probably be spinning tires..and going thru them pretty quick..
not to mention drive train parts lifespan will decrease rather quick.
that may not be much fun...especially on the wallet.

try a 8.5 thru 10.5.

if the track is more technical...it will do just fine. ...if it's a drag strip type of track...(aka 2 straights + 2 turn) then lower winds would work.

Remember it's about having fun.
