Thanks for the info. So for me 7 over the wind should do it for my SB.

Thanks!

Tamiyaracer- With the modified version you will want to run 18 degrees in touring car and 2wd buggy. There is a small notch on the endbell that you line up the timing mark with on the motor label.

thanks, Joe! i have been very impressd with the power and low(er) maintenance of this motor...

im not sure if the stock motor would make much more power with the V2, but it would make for fewer cuts required.

The new stock motor will be dialed. Just think how much better the Revolution is in modified.

Joe - I'm running a Peak Surikarn 11x1. Would you start at 12 or 18 degrees of timing with Enduro brushes and stock springs?

For what it matters, I'm in an XRay Factory car... Spools up quickly.

losirob-With the Surikarn motors I would stay around 12 degrees of timing. Two things I would change is to run sprint brushes and switch from medium/hard springs (come in the motor) to hard springs. This will give the motor allot more punch. Also breaking in the brushes is very important when putting new brushes in.

Joe - thanks for the quick reply, I know you (and the other pro's who take the time to help the rest of us) have lots of things going on. Your input is appreciated.

I'll try your suggestions next time I run.

Thanks again,

Rob

Bob Barry- Use sprint brushes, hard springs and 12 degrees of timing. We gear our motors 1 to 2 teeth below our old style motors.

losirob- If you have any other questions you can also go to www.team-orion.com and I have a thread under factory drivers.

I would like that problem. Going to low on gearing is an issue! How much torque do you get with the harder springs and enduro brushes?
