Don't remove the whole thing! Just loosen the screws a little buddy! Lol no worries we have all been there - keep asking questions bc it's the people who think they automatically know everyone who mess up the worst.

In other words, put it back together but leave those three screws a little loose until you can rotate the center piece.

Mine was difficult to turn as well. I can't figure out if it is the plate that the three screws go through or the plate on the end that the threads go into are causing it. I did get it to a spot I wanted it to be at so I just tightened it back down and will be giving it a try.

As you can see in the pic they grind out the areas on the main plate which sometimes creates little burs which stop the plate from moving. If I have one where it doesn't move I tap out the smaller disc and then smooth out any imperfections and re assemble.

Normally after that it works perfectly,

This engine make me crazy



How the center can move because it s one pieces...

Whats the graduation utility if it s can't slip anymore.

I ve try to put the "C plate" directly on the aluminium pieces and put the sensor after. But i can't put it the bearing. That s was just a desesperate try

I will run with this stock timing

Default advice!

hi guys, blew up my new 13.5t orca today! tmps were only peaking at 70 degrees and only second time ive run it so pretty jarred off!

anyway, now need another one, already got a speedpassion which seems very hardy but not as quick as the orca.

ive got a hw xtreme stock running indoor on carpet, track is around 35 mtrs long, racing an xray t3'11.

how would a d3 suit and what sort of settings?

cheers

Please read my post, it is not 1 piece it is two pieces and I would say they have jammed together and this is why they are not moving as they should be.

As I suggested, the disc that has Trinity written on it is a separate piece to the part that has the timing notch marks on it. Turn it upside down and from the inside very lightly tap on different sections of thr small disc and it should come apart. I DO say gently as you don't want to hit it hard and damage or bend it

The D3 would work fine. You might have to find the right gearing for your track as with anymotor, But the majority of people in the states run some sort of Trinity Duo motor and they usually fill most of the Amains in spec racing.

Yes it is two peices. Sometimes it is stuck and needs alittle bit of nudge to move or come loose. He is correct with what he told you to do.

I also had the same prob. when I first bought mine. I have fixed it now, all you need to do is sand the outside edge of the smaller pc. a little. Took me about 2 min. to do it. The machining tolerance is a bit tight, or the anodizing.
Hope this helps.
