I don't think they need one. The current one is just as fast if not faster than any legal motor out there.

Yep my thunder power are fast but not as fast as the not legal and now legal again motor. And to add I'm not going to buy 4 new motor's thats have been out for 2 years, when other brands have there latest and greatest out now.

But I am a Thunder Power fan and will wait, if something is in the works.

If you're running blinky, put a green rotor in it and gear up.

If you look at Viktor Wilck's results from ETS you can see he runs some of the fastest lap times.

thanks

but most riders look at the Features of the orion vortex vst2 but the tp z3r 4.5t is more smooth to drive (personal experience) and driving with zero boost is 13.5 tp the engine to have

Yes, the rotors make no difference (provided it's not a Mod rotor) and the stators are also interchangable, but again, only within other Stock motor cans.

I'm running 45 Boost, 15 Turbo, endbell timing at factory setting, think its 20, End RPM at 19500, and the start RPM at the 3500 mark, which ever pops up around that mark when you put it in, My FDR is around the 5.7 mark, goes tits out, just run a fan as she comes off a bit warm after a 6min run with an added 2-3 min of warm up, been running that for over a year with no smoke yet lol, but just check temps at about the 3 min mark too make sure.
