I would suggest a rollout of 90 to get started, and use 36 degrees timing. This with the STOCK 12.5 rotor was used recently and understand successfully.

This is what he told me in pm

I've been in discussion with Paul Worsley regarding motors. You just might see them within the next few months. Not through Paul but a distributor.

My EDM is 17.5 boosted. It makes awesome power. Just watch your gearing, these motors don't like heat. I'm also running the high rpm rotor. Ron did tell me you can run the high torque rotor also. I'm running 18* motor timing and 45* boost timing in my Hobbywing V3 esc.

What a great advertisment for a stock motor. I was thinking of trying one of these motors but with 60c track temps here at the moment, ill be steering clear of these motors now. Thanks for the heads up!

ron layout is about 80 x 80 with three straights around edges joined. so long flat out section with rest infield. first night with motor set pb so far happy. definitly not giving any top end away if anything one of the fastest top end but still had good bottom punch.
gut feeling think i am fairly close to optimum.
main question is timing what is a good max.
old motor was maxxed at 30 and only got hot with more.

By not liking heat, I mean keep it under 160* there is a very noticeable power loss after 160* F. These motors are very efficient and make awesome power. I highly recommend them, just watch temps the first couple runs until you get gearing figured out.

I guess I will ask the same motor question as previous. I just bought a 21.5 to try out in USGT and I am looking for a good place to start on a track that is 82 x 48. We have one straight away into a sweeper, one chicane and the inside is pretty flowing. The cars are running between 8.4 to a flat 9 second laps, but I wanna beat that lol. I have a D3.5 21.5 in and cannot get that motor to run right. Some guys running the Hobbywing Xerun are rolling a 3.6 and turning into the 8.5 or 8.6 seconds. Almost the same rollouts for the Ballistics. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

All I can say is WOW! This motor RIPS! Not very good talk or support on this forum about the motor, but when you buy and run it, it speaks for itself. I assume everyone is busy over the lawsuit Trinity has filed against ROAR.

I tried this motor in our local VTA class, we use a 17.5 and even geared 3.8-3.9 with 0 endbell timing I'm being blown past by LRP X12's with two dot inserts. We run blinky ESC's (mine's a Hobbywing V3) I have tried upping the endbell timing and all that did was rob me of punch and pump up the temps.

There are guys running the Thunderpower 17.5 that are a second a lap quicker than I am (20's against 21's) I run with a consistency around 0.2 - 0.3 but this motor so far is a huge let down. (That said the D3.5 was worse)

If your at 0 endbell timing that's your problem. Never go below 15*, I run 18* for boosted and if your running blinky Ron recommends to start at 30 degrees. I personally run between 34 and 38* endbell timing.

hey Lewis.... Can you please share your boosted settings? Are you racing indoor or outdoor?
