Roll out between a 1.80-1.95 depending on amp draw of the motor. High amp draw closer to 1.80 and vice versa. Brushes F brushes with .010 off the trailing edge and a 2mm hole in the face. Green springs.

Also if you have one, check spring tension on the springs with a spring thing.

10A is probably a good motor if everything is good on it. But the motorcheckers we use are limited in usefulness anyway. Best way to check is lap times or maybe get someone to run it on a fancy motor dyno if you know anybody with one. But if it drives fast times on the track, keep it for the big heats and mains, you know it's a good one.
Mike thats the old school of thought...I don't run a motor if it's pulling more than 8 amps....usually that means it will over heat and fade. Sure it will be faster for 2 minutes but then you will see your lap times fall off. You can thank todays batteries for having to detune your motors LOL

So what should I do to lower the amps of the motor? would changing the springs do it?

add a slot, cavity, file the trailing edge...basically reduce surface area.

trailing edge meaning the left or right side of brushes when looking at the endbell?

I know this has been asked only about 1 million times so.... I new to RC and I have a TC3 and a epic x and a co27 pro, monstor pro. our track is about 50 by 36. What type of gearing should I do ? Is there a site that list what your gear ratio should be per motor and track size ? So I know when I goto another track. Also I have a 48 pitch now, would it be better to switch to 64 pitch? There is just so much to learn, lol
Thanks for the help guys
Also are the Reedy or Orion stock motor any good?

Trailing edge is on the left side and you want to take off .001".

they are very close but you have to gear up (way up) they have alot of torque, I went up 4 teeth from the gearing for a CO27.

someone told me that i would never get the same braking with the brushless motors. Is there any truth to that?

Sportsman is generally a drag race to the next board, I doubt they would mind.

Unless your track has specific rules that is.
