You guys should get a Schuurspeed or Tekin, they rip so hard. Maybe a Viper.

I am running mostly small to medium indoor carpet tracks so I am not sure on the gearing...

I am running on 34x70 medium bite carpet track and I am geared at 4.17 FDR with timing just past the last tick mark on can. I would guess you would be 2-3 teeth up from that at least.

I would suggest the following:
Start with 3rd timing mark and around 3.9/3.8 FDR and work you way down on gearing and up on timing based on temps. Maybe someone more local can get you closer.

Reedy Sonic. Mine is geared 72/35 in an Xray (1.9 internal ratio) with 38-40* can timing.

I run the Trinity Monster lock 17.5 motor. Never had a problem with it.

Looks like it's going to be the Reedy Sonic. It's the only option here that doesn't require an extra purchase of the HT rotor. lol

The Tekin Gen2 also comes with a 12.5mm rotor standard. Fyi.

I find it works really well at 30*, for which I use the green +20* board and 10* on the can. I haven't tried the +30* board, but the +40* board was too much timing, and I couldn't get the sweet spot by changing the gearing.

+1 for tekin or reedy sonic. I have a tekin rpm in my tc and its surprisingly rippy. not quite as much grunt but damn does it rip in a straight line lol. im gonna run that this season to see how it handles against the HT motors people are using.

also use a reedy sonic with both rotors. I actually kind of like the softer feel pulling out of corners with high rpm rotor. less likely to spin out getting back on the throttle.

ill have to wait to see if the laptimes reflect my opinion though.
