Losi- Unless you are at the top of stock class at your local club do not run that setup. It is SUPER hard on the motor, the com will need to be cut every 2 runs or so and the seration will be gone after 1 maby 2 runs max. Its basically a race setup or for someone who likes to spend alot of $ on brushs and lots of time at the lathe. Just my $.02

That's a 1/12th scale setup. For TC stock the lightest springs I'd run would be red/green.

Talking Springs

On,y MY opinion;

The more power the motor uses, the stiffer the brush springs have to be. If your motor is going soft at 2 or 3 minute marks, it either needs stiffer springs or needs to go down one tooth on the pinion.

Red on + for stock TC is a good set up to me.

Green on - is also good.

Green on + might be a little light and the brush will be blown away from the com. this causes more arcing which makes for poor commutation. which = less power.

It has been said here many times, stiffer spring more torque lighter spring more RPM. Each has its cost. I prefer the slightly stiffer spring so the comm and brushes stay cleaner with less arcing and pit marks for better performance.

Green on + AND - could be a good combo for 1/12 scale because the power (V*A=watts) is less. But in a touring car, I would go with red/green or Red/red . Some in this forum have said purple/red on a monster for more torque. I have not tried that because I run Pan cars and Off road.

I ran my Orion Stock Core today and was getting pulled on the straights by other guys. I ran a 100T spur and 37T rear. It was a long straight where I could reach max RPM.

Can someone tell me what gearing they use? It's very frustrating running a stock motor that nobody uses and not knowing the proper gearing to run.

I'm thinking about switching to a Fukuyama Mako or a Monster just because nobody runs this Orion Stock Core where I race!! Thanks, Donovan
