Yes you will see tomorrow

I am a little bit stop/start on my driving, not the smoothest guy.... So for more get up out of the corners I guess you would use a high torque rotor. But which one? The 12.3 or the whole hog 12.5

Our track is a mix of tight corners and a nice sweeper leading onto a 80-90 ft straight. I do not want to give too much away down the straight though... as that is where I do some of my best driving....

Measured both from the solder rings and they are very close.

Holy crap this motor is amazing on small tracks....but holy crap is this thing slow on a 285 foot straight/sweeper. Ordered a new rotor to try. Trying the high rpm 12.5.

I believe it is "Optimized" for high altitude!

Jury is still out, geared it up and down, it didn't want to come out of the corner as well as my other motor, top end seemed the same, and it ran 20dg cooler.

Hmm... I feel like I know less now than I did last week. Can the high altitude version not look like it was designed by a toddler with only 3 crayons?

I had to run the motor at 2.9 fdr to keep up with a car down the straight. They catch up about 3/4 of the way through and then are on my ass into the first corner. I then pull a little. Im still super impressed on small tight tracks but unless there is a rotor that can fix this I'm about ready to post it for sale and go get a different motor. I ordered the 12.5 hi rpm. Unless someone can change my mind and tell me to get a different rotor. I want to be one of the faster cars on the straight. btw our track right now
[__________] that kind of setup for the straight which is about 330-370 feet that you should be running wide open in 17.5. There is a lot of room for a motor to catch up. Frustrated. Ohhh... btw I wanted to run boosted...


So i put in a mod.

This is for sure my indoor carpet motor.

How do you figure that there is a 110 to 150 feet in the keyhole? Per the LH site the track is: 220x75x220x125 Link the the track size

Folks - on this track you would start with FDR of 3.4 and timing between 10 and 15. (remember you already have 30 built in). Sorry but I was not even in the 2s (FDR) with the Reedy motor.....

I figure you running 200 feet of the the straight, 50 feet on the short side and 100 feet roughly on the side near the door. I personally am running flat out coming around the bend all the way.

Btw I was not in the 2's with the Reedy either.

Are you guys all racing on the same track? 2.9 (wow) and 3.5 is a huge gap in fdr.
