I would like to know if you can change a Z3R-S to a Z3R-M and vice versa. I know the stators can be interchanged to change the wind of the motor, but I wasn’t sure if I buy a 10.5 and decide later I want a 9.5 or 8.5 etc, will I be able to do that? Why are they labeled different with the -S and the -M

(Obviously I know the -S is stock and the -M is modified, but that doesn’t really tell me if they are different)

Thanks, hoping for a quick reply, plan on buying one in the next 2 days or so.

Hy!

I would like to know what kind of gearing is the best for Z3R 6.5T motor? I'd like to use in modifield class in carpet but we run for 7minutes. I use SP v2.1 ESC with 3.0 Modifield software. (If someone's got a good ESC setup thats would be very great)

Thanks,

Máté

Using 205 I would suggest starting with a 7.5 final leaving the mechanical timing set at 20*.

You will need to look at the Speed Passion site to find setups using Boost.

Is the timing on the endbell of these motors 'True' timing or manufacturer BS

... Also, does anyone have a picture of the endbell with it's timing marks etc?

Thanks

Maybe one tooth. A safe starting point is 4.0 and I personally like 3.7-3.8 timed at 40* With a fan temps after 3min should be around 135* and 145* - 150* after 6min.

Just the inform anyone who saw my early posts, here's a photo with the timing set to 20deg (and by the way the rotor measures 1300 gauss);
