Blue (Torque) is 12.23mm, but the magnetic material section is 1mm longer (usually slightly higher gauss than the Red)

Green (Hi-Torque) 12.43mm and the magnetic material is the same length as the Blue. Slightly higher gauss than the Blue, but it's the change in diameter that makes the difference.

Hey Ed how did you get it to turn? I bought this motor from you and it's stuck again

I had the same problem when I got mine brand new, seems like the people who assembled these really tightened them down, all I did was loosen the three screws and then really
Grab it tight and give it a twist

I know the mod stators are sapose to use a different can than the stocks but I put a 5.0 stator in a 17.5 can and even though it has a little gap between the can I hooked it up and it seems to work fine. Can I keep running it or should I not ? Has anyone ran a mod stator in a stock can ? Thanks

hi guys, i need help for 10.5 Boost!

some questions about what I read.

I use the green rotor; High Torque.
I'm trying to FDR 6.23 (foam tires rollout 30)
EndBell 25 degrees.
temperature around 70C.
The track is fast, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOzETAXicTk

It's a good start?

Green rotor setup this this ok? (boost max 40 +24).

Thank you for your attention.

Perhaps gearing at around 7.0fdr?

tks Skiddins.

In the last weekend, i try 7,08FDR, is no good, more hot, around 80 at 85 degrees in motor, and too my best laps higher.
Maybe have more torque, this setting was not good.

The endbell in 25degrees, is a try by try, start in 15, and up the temperature of the motor is allowing.

this is the way I'm going, I do not know if anyone has similar experience in these conditions, 10.5 + green rotor.

Maybe you could turn down the timing on the ESC.
Make sure you have a good fan on the motor.

I ran this configuration last year on my Awesomatix: 35° of motor timing (never go higher or the motor could burn), ratio of 4.46 (88/41 in 64 pitch) and 2 fans blowing on motor.

I never went higer than 80°C temp motor like this, even with air temp @ 28-30°C

You can a little change the ratio and go to 4.2 if needed.

Cheers,
G-rem
