suggestions for Sonic 21.5 FDR in my FF03

New at this, is it...
I.D. (2.60) X (spur divided by pinion) = FDR

Please and thank you!
Track 80x45 roughly (pretty open)

I was told 4.576 but he has a different motor..

Oh, and I don't have a motor fanYet!

Ask Ed tomorrow, I'm pretty sure he's also running a reedy 21.5t

I am currently running 88/50 on my FF03 with the Sonic 21.5. I have also ran 80/53 but that felt slow. Current FDR is 4.58 and my temps are 160ish F with no fan.

Thank you

I took apart my reedy sonic 8.5 to clean it tonight and didn't pay attention to the placement of the spacers (the shaft side where the pinion goes.) There is a green o-ring, and 3 same size diameter spacers but different thinkness. Can someone tell me the order, including where the o-ring goes? thanks in advance.

Use the shims to try and get the rotor as close as possible to the sensor without it touching. Check this by putting a few shims on the sensor end of the rotor and sliding the end bell/sensor assembly on to the rotor. The remaining shims go on the output shaft and the o-ring goes on last.

Hi,

Sorry if this has been discussed before...

Reedy Sonic 10.5 on LRP Flow with V5 software. What endbell timing would people recommend?

I have a 21.5 that has new bearings in it. It runs smooth, but when spun, feels like a brushed motor. I have a lot of motors and none of them have this odd feel, like its snapping too hard between magnetic poles. Shaft is straight, all spacers in the right place, nothing touching inside. I'm mystified.

Some people call it bump but the proper term is cogging. Some motors have more than others depending on rotor magnet strength, air gap between the rotor and stator and stator lamination design.

It is not a problem. You just figure out the timing and gearing for it in your application and it will be just as fast (or faster) as a motor with less cogging.

Going to try the 13.5 in my new CRC Xti. On a short tight track with a lot of braking/accelerating, does the motor still like a lot of static timing or will it get pretty hot? We usually only have a short straight with a sweeper where you are pinned so I don't know if setting up for max RPM will work. Should I instead run lower on the static for better torque and some dynamic for the one straight?
