THanks

Also explains why I can't get the other rotors from the UK shops!

Ran this on the weekend and got really good results:
13.5t
5.5 fdr
blue rotor
25 motor timing
9drrs
40 boost
250 acc
5k start
24 turbo
24 slope
delay off

This was on an outdoor asphalt track, medium grip at times with about a 25m straight.

What differences in gearing did any of you have to make when changing to one of the tuning rotors?

I have ordered one each of the different rotors to see for myself how much of a difference they make.

They have an order in. We are currently waiting on motors to arrive so we can ship orders. Hopefully real soon.

Sadly I just ordered the rotors from Tonisport in Germany.

RC-Explorer don't show the option rotors in their listings so I assumed they didn't have any!

However, if the one's I receive do make the difference I hope, then I'll be ordering some more, so I'll ask Explorer first.

Hello may anyone help me with speedo setting and final gear for the below motor and esc

Motor 8.5 THPRC Z3 R
Speedo LRP SXX V2 and Tekin RS Pro

Do we have the KV for each turn of the Z3R motors

Thank you.

Got the option rotors through.

They have a higher gauss rating than the standard red rotor, 1450 as opposed to the Red's 1300.

But I can't see much difference between the 'Hi-Torque' (green, 12.5mm, 1450gauss) and the 'Torque' (blue, 12.3mm, 1420 gauss).

Should there be a greater difference and what will be the difference with regard to gearing and on-track performance between all three.

When they arrived in the box the were 'stuck' together. Could this have reduce their power or should they be unaffected?

Thanks
P.S. Has anyone else tried their rotors on an Epic gauss meter?

We use the Epic gauss meter here. We dont publish gauss numbers as there are differences in meters and rotors. You can not just go off gauss readings by themselfs as air gap also plays a big role. Havng the rotors stuck together does not reduce the gauss. Just let hem sit apart for a day and they will normalize. When gong to the green rotor, gear up and time down as the torque is increased. Still the fastest set ups are with the standard red rotors. This is because our motors were designed for rpm not torque.

We do not publish Kv numbers for our motors as there are too many variables in the readings with sensored motors. Temp, timing, rotor can all effect the output.

Regarding settings, 8.5t is not normally used here in the states so I don't have any idea where to start.

OK

Where would you start at, with regard to gearing, for these two tracks with your 13.5's?
I know a lot is dependant on the ESC etc, but all things being equal....

Back straight is around 50m

last year at Jackson RC (130 ft back straight -- or 40 meter) we ran about a 4.4 fdr with Thunder Power 13.5t motors, blue rotors, 35 degree motor timing and 'blinky' esc.
