My experience is that the Ballistic motors are about the same as the SSPro series motors -- it there is any difference, it is slight. If anything, my new Ballistic 13.5 feels like it might have slightly more torque than the older SSPro 13.5 it replaced, but that is probably just because it is "fresher" (stronger magnets, etc.)...

I just recently switched from a SS to a Ballistic motor and it is really lacking punch. So I'm trying to match the timing on the motor between the two.

My SS felt the same way when I had the timing turned as far down as it would go. On my motor that was the mark on the ring just to the left of the bottom screw as you looked at the back. When I moved the mark just to the right of the screw the motor really came to life.

So my Ballistic was at zero and flat. So I advanced the timing one mark (+). Still flat just got hotter... so should I retard the timing all the way and then advance a notch or two? Or what would you suggest to match the timing of my SS?

I run my 13.5 near full timing most of the time has not ran hot and definetly great punch.however I have not ran the ss motor but compared to the other manufactures the ballistic has the best bottom I think.I would crank the timing up maybe change some gearing also when you do that!

Thanks Joe but I'm running a Tekin RS speedo and as much as I like it I also hate trying to find the "sweet" spot. I thought I'd found it with my SS so I'm just trying to match it with the Ballistic. Otherwise its like starting over.

The stock ballistic timing should be identical to the stock SS pro timing. (30 degrees)

Each tick mark on the Ballistic is approximately 5 degrees of added timing.

The max timing that was acheivable with the SS Pro varies from motor to motor, but it was probably 40-45 degrees on average.

So the range is roughly the same, meaning if I turn the rings on both motors fully clockwise (or counter clockwise) I would have basically the same timing? I just don't remember where the SS mark was set to start with... unless they were all in the middle of the range like the Ballistic.

Default Ballistic Motor updates:

Last week, we released some of our Ballistic wound stators as distribution items, so racers can now purchase stators from their LHS. We will be adding some additional, specialized winds to our store offerings (only): 9.5, 11.5 and 25.5.

We also announced both steel and ceramic individual bearings for our motors. We are also offering two Ballistic motors for crawling, both individually and in Goat 3S crawling systems. Also, the Havoc Pro/Ballistic systems have been shipping for a couple of weeks.

We are also designing a "Build a Ballistic" section for our store. Customers can choose from all of the components for assembly at home (motor in a box); or for an additional fee, we can assemble and test the motor here. The addition of the ceramic bearings and new wound stators will offer even more possibilities for customization.

More torque, less rpm?
