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

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

Does anybody have other suggestions ?

10.5's were 70mmpr

17.5 blue rotor 98mmpr 35 degree timing was what I ran at BRCA nationals. Car was definitely on pace.

Default Thunder power Z3R 4.5T rotor question

Hello
Im running an xray T4 touring car with esc speed passion gt2 pro and the above motor.
I was bought the gold rotor "rpm" because the stock one destroyed the balance ring of the rotor.
Do i have to adjust the gear and the esc setup???
Thanks...

Default New rotor fitting

Guys
About to fit a new rotor whats the purpose of the O ring that sits on the shaft at the pinion end of the rotor. is it just to secure the shim washers in transit or does it need to be there all the time??
