Hello,

I have Peak Vantage Shurikarn edition 12x2 and just purchased a Orion Revolution Steenari 12x2.

Should I change gearing on my car?

Nick

Bought now a pair of Sprint brushes and Enduro.
Will use the Sprint on major races.
Also replaced the springs with hard ones.

Using enduro and hard springs, do you think it is ok to use a 5.6 final drive ratio? can i still do lower?
Pre,
In our track, u can gear it between 8.3-8.5....as ur base....

Anyone know where I can buy armatures for the V2 motors on-line?

sorry, got mixed up. with 5.6 I was referring to EP23T.
Ty on the base bai

my set-up got [email protected]!ked up. I changed blocks to 1.5 back 1.0 front and changed springs. Now my handling is so different. Off-Power am ok entering corners but On-Power I tail-fish. Also, the handling is very twitchy (too aggressive response from steering).

Will go back to former set-up and will change things one at a time I guess.

Either u moved 1 hole down on ur front shock position or moved outward 1 hole on the rear. Another way is softened ur front suspension or make it harder suspension on the rear by changing 1 spring up.

Has anyone else had any problems with the internal resistors fitted to the V2? My car was suffering from really bad interference and when i checked the small LED on the board is not lighting up. Rick

I had the same problem but all I had to do was clean the brush tubes with a bit of wire wool to make a better contact.

Rick, Yeah this is a common problem. Check that the tabs are making good contact with the tube. If the LED is not on, then the caps are not connected and hence you get interference. I understand that a few people are actually soldering the tab to the tube, although i believe it isn't an easy job.

I have just switched the board over from another motor and the LED is now lighting up fine on the other board so i presume the other one is faulty. I will return it to Helger along with my Q2. Rick

Team Orion stands behind all of their products, I am sure if you contact the closest Team Orion facility they will be more than willing to fix the problem.

Default Orion revo for Pro10 class

Just wondering if anyone can recommend a Orion revo motor for 1/10 pan car 6 cell class. I've never ran a mod before, so I am trying to get as much info on mod motors before I make my choice. I will be racing on indoor carpet tracks, 80-100ft long and 30-40ft wide. From what I've been reading on this forum the Orion's are the way to go. Thanks for your time.

AL

I can't get the 19turn V2 yet so i put a fantom 19x1 arm in the V2 can. It runs backwards when soldiered correctly. Can I reverse the timing on the endbell(turn it around) and still have the same performance as there should be? Will the capacitors short out? Anyone tried this yet?

thanks
chad
