Yes, and it will also depend on driving preference.

Remember, the pinion/spur gearing will be different because everyone's internal gear ratio is different, but in the end, the FDR will be pretty close.

I'm just saying if your motor is running to hot that you need to gear down.

These motors only have 5-7 runs in them before the magnets start to wear and the hotter you run the motor the faster they wear.

Also the hotter your motor the less performance so as your motor gets hotter in the race the worst it will do.

Hi, I just wanted someone to verify for me these articles of information:

Average ideal FDR for

Monster motor: 7.5

Orion Stock core 6.25?

I'm running the Orion Stock at 6.75 now (64 pitch, 100T spur, 37T pinion) and it already gets hot after running on an oval. Might be cuz it's full-power 90% of the time, but is this wrong?

Previously, someone suggested 6.25 which would give me a 40T intended pinion. Uh, will this blow my Orion Stock Core up?

Try narrow brush trick to cure heating. Orion Core is similar to MVP. FDR could be right.

More info (hard to find correct thread) about narrow brush can be found Big Jim motorforum . Lot of reading about motors.

LoSi xXx S - Putnam brushes work great in the monster. For the brushes you may want to try a green + and blue - so they last a little longer. The posted springs will work fine.

rollout = (tire diameter(mm or inches) x 3.14) / (Overall gear ratio)
