Regarding X12 8.5T on user manual its recomended 7.0fdr and on LRP website 8.9fdr on 7.2/7.4 volts and for 4wd offroad.
What fdr is really recommended by LRP?

Timming for 4wd offroad with same motor,which timming insert would you recommend? "oooo"?

Thanks

@afonsopt: not sure where this difference comes from, but one thing I'm sure which is that attached manual shows most recent and correct information...

I recommend "oooo" timing for all classes, this also the setting all the newer batches come as default.

So do these motors come with the "0000" timing set already?

Default In detail what does this mean from the manual?

This vague statement below is inside the SPHERE instructions manual~ but where do you guys find this 'brake' setting in your radios...name/mode?...I have the Spektrum DX3R.

Is the statement referring to adjusting the brake exponential setting?
I can't imagine it referring to Travel adjustment, since lowering it below 100% will not allow you to initialize the 'Launch Control' feature.

**A good starting point for the brake is 80% on the radio, for all classes. Make sure you do the
radio-setup with all settings on the radio on 100%.


Loot at page 2 / 7. Mode Programming / Mode 3 (Initial Brake) / Team Tips
http://www.lrp.cc/fileadmin/lrp_anle...-070119-fv.pdf

ALSO:

This is in regards to Sphere TC ESC + X12 4.0T motor~

Since both components have an input voltage of 7.4v, would it be correct for me to power it directly to a 2S 7.4v Lipo without a drop down regulator?

My SR3100 RX can handle up to 9.0v and then I plan to use a single drop down 5.8v adapter plug between the RX and servo.

Curious. Why does LRP now recommend -10 (oooo) timing over the prevous 0 degree timing (oo)? Is the -10 timing recommendation for with LRP or all ESCs? and all winds?

Thanks.

I've been wondering what the manual is talking about too, but I think that it is referring to the travel adjustment. I hope someone can clarify this!

Yes, we're talking about travel adjustment of brake. Unfortunately this is not called by the same name for all radio manufacturers. Some call it "EPA", some call it "brake travel", etc...

The recommendation to use 80% as a starting point (after you have completed the radio/speedo setup process with 100% of course) is from practical experience. Anything higher then this will create very hectic brake which is unpredictable as the brake would simply become too strong.

I hope that clarifies things for you.

That does clarify that assumption for me.

So even by setting the *Brake Travel/EPA* anywhere less than 100%, would the 'Launch Control' feature still initialize/activate when holding down the brake for 5 seconds??

I hope you can clarify this one too.

Update on LRP X12 5.5T. After having issues with shaft length, got that resolved by changing to 008 chassis...today at around run #15 on this motor, the end bell side bearing siezed, blew the rotor, then torched the windings. The bearing can be seen frozen on the end of the shaft.

The motor ran great, had great power, and gave no signs of failure until the melt down. I've had it about 40 days....am I SOL or will they replace my motor for me?? If so, contact info appreciated.

burito.. anyone..

the bearing that sits behind the sensor assembly has blown apart leaving the outer bearing casing wedged inside the motor..

the inner track and balls have been removed, but the outer casing is still in the motor..

any ideas on removal?

-Mark

ps. much like verndog, this was about run 8 or 9 with the motor and no signs of failure until the bearing ripped itself apart

After finishing the race weekend, I know of at least 1 other new X12 that blew up over the weekend. I only know of 5 people there that were running the new X12, 2 of which blew. Not very good numbers.

A responce to warrantee info would be appreciated.

Reto,

On my brand new X12 5.5 motor, the two outer casings don't perfectly meet. There is a small gap, even with the rotor removed. Should I be concerned?

My other X12 (6.5) is not this way.

Thanks
