Hi

Have anyone a good setting for this esc for 13.5 boosted class?

Any advice on esc settings, FDR etc will be highly appreciated.

I am running a Schumacher Mi4CXL

Anyone know what sort of FDR's were being used by the other Thunder Power runners at Cotswold for the BRCA meeting.

I've been running around 25deg motor timing with the blue rotor and was geared at 7.08 (top speed for me was measured at 51mph)

In the last final I geared at 6.65 with 20deg motor timing, this did give higher top speed but the mid range grunt was missing (few tenths slower).

This was my first final of 3 (blue car with yellow and orange stripes;

+ YouTube Video

Hi guys. Sorry for the noob questions

I got one of these motors and I want to change to the ceramic bearings. I got the bearing replacement tool and I got the bearing out of the end bell but how do I get the one out of the can? Do I need to take the stator out? If so, how do I do that. Sorry again for noob questions.

it'll just pull out from the red can once you've removed the endbell

Ok weird. Is there a trick to it? Mine seems to not easily pull out. I though there must be more screws holding it in or something

it is a tight fit, it helps to twist the red cap, usually once it frees up a little it comes right out. If its really stuck use like a 2.5mm driver and push on the stator from the front side, carefully.

Use your thumb to remove the stator... just wedge it into where the rotor goes. If you melted the stator you might need to use a soldering to remove any solder peaking through the can.
