Default orion vst combo or lrp/reedy combo

Hello all,

I am looking to get a new set up for my new tc6.1 and I wanted to try something new. I have had many different setups on various cars but I have never tried Orion or LRP setups. I know many of you think Tekin is the best ( I cant argue with that) but I am looking to try something different, and something I have never had. Any experience and Info is appreciated.

I will assume your running mod, Go with a SXX V2 with a 5.0 octa in touring car if your trying to find a competitive combination as an experienced mod driver. 27 tooth pinion (iirc) and change boost for track size.

Well I am actually planning on running th 17.5 class, but I am still undecided about it. I was thinking that switching from VTA to mod would be a little more difficult then switching from VTA to 17.5. But that was very good info and I appreciate it

Maybe this is a track size thing as over here on our large outdoor tracks the Hobbywing/Sp/Orion/Tekin are the speedy to get. I have just switched to the Orion from a Hobbywing and I like it more because its smooth and has awesome brakes. Try as i may I can't get the VST motor to go as fast as my old D3/Hw combo. One of the other R10 users has a SP v3 Screaming and the other a reedy sonic that is no slouch. I would stick to a D3 or V3 MMM for fast motors that can handle boost.

Or if you want to take a risk on some old stock Amains still have some of these. Gods knows where they found them but they are gun motors IMO.

Thanks guys, some good info. My track is medium size with only one good straight. So I like the sound of smooth with good brakes. Speed is nothing without control right??
