Thank you for this info. I have found that 30-40 works great for blinky class racing. Any more timing then this and things got very hot and faded at the end of the run.

I ran the 17.5 at Reedy over my revtech's and felt lil faster and more rip. Temps were good too. Got me in the A main in 17.5. Eyeing up that esc since looks sweet in TCX.

Any chance that there is going to be a higher turn SC motor available? I have a Skalar 17.5 that I really like. I run higher voltage with lower kv in most of my stuff. Thanks.

I had a good day with my Hacker 13.5 motor. I think this package is starting to get closer..

Been running the 17.5ís for a month now in boosted
These motors have some rip found them to be very quick off the corners but lacking the top speed of the others. Have easily overcome this with gearing with very little lose to the bottom end.
These motors have plenty of engine braking much like Mods, which Is to my liking and more than enough when brakes applied.
These motors have made it easier for me to fight for corners with more control
Running to team Orion speedy I have found that I need to run 20 degrees timing on the motor with boosted, the car is running at 70c.

Me and my partner also run these Hacker systems and they're working great! Everyone at the track always asks whats that "purple system"...

Default Spec tuning rotor

Chasing some info on the spec tuning rotor listed on Roar's Approvals list
Is it just a replacement, for more torque or high rpm?
What is its part number, I can find the mod options but not the spec

Ran the TensorIC esc and Skalar 17.5 this past weenkend in my DEX210 and wow it was good. Really good! I also bought the Hacker Progbox. I downloaded the Hacker TensorIC software to my laptop, uploaded the stock spec firmware.
The quality of this esc and motor is amazing. It has a really great switch as well, which seems to be a problem on a majority of esc's. Everything is well assembled and even the packaging is high quality lol, not that it matters. I programmed in some aggresive settings and calibrated my radio(very simple) and was ready to hit the track. After trying a couple different pinions and timing combo's, I settled on 34/69 with 40degrees on the motor. It felt ultra smooth, and great brakes. Motor never ran above 120. I can probably go up another tooth and max out the timing to 45 and still run under 155. It had great top end for the layout, so I didnt gear up anymore. Motor was punchy, and mid was great too. I noticed it the last 1/8 of trigger pull ramps up aggressively, and I noticed it gave me a larger range of my most common area of throttle use. But when I punched it, it accelerated hard. Over the last year and a half I have ran the fallowing esc's in my buggy.
LRP V1 Stock Spec SXX + Works Team cap
Novak GTB2 & GTB2 X-drive
Tekin RS-Pro + 3 Tekin caps

I had settled on the LRP and had no plans to switch, but was convinced to try the Hacker by smoebody faster than me. The Hacker is staying in and I will be switching all my 1/10 scale to the TensorIC. I like the fact that I can pic firmware, either stock or mod. That was one thing I did not like about the LRP. And I didn't think the Tekin was nearly as smooth as either the LRP or Hacker, plus it had a dead spot right off neutral that I could not get out, nor anyone else who tried. And the Novak was pretty decent in all areas, but lacked the programability I was after. I ran it on Tuesday in a big race locally and I was able to beat one of the guys who had my number since day one. It ran flawless all day long. I let anyone who wanted to run my buggy give it a spin. All impressed. I dont race for Hacker, nor do I endorse outside of my sponsors, but in this case I will make an exception. Its really worth trying.

I also used to run the novak then to LRP and now Hacker. I love these systems and see them known as a high end brand once everyone gives them a try. I carry the full line at GlitchRC.com
