Default Advanced endbell

I tested the Advanced end bell and timing board at Adrenalin Arena here in Melbourne, Australia. High grip track, 13 degrees Celsius ambient temp... I run a VBC D07 chassis with Radon ESC, TP X booster, new 100c Tp lipo ( awesome) and twin 40mm wtf fans.,

Best setup so far was 4.7 at "5.8" on the endbell, timing mark adjacent to the "e" of team powErs.. The other guys with stock endbell tn 3.9 fdr at 0d timing and 4.2 at 4d with similar results. My setup was definitely quicker than my R1 ultra premium. It was more consistent and had more brakes too. I've been running the Actinium since its release. Best value for money motor and also has the broadest power range of all the major brands.

Well done TP

With one of the high speed fans out there you should be able to run 4.0 all day long outdoors with the timing pegged. I, personally did not see a big difference with the advanced timing end bell. Team Powers are pretty badass though, right out of the box.

do people generally use the standard rotor or opt for the high torque or one of the other option rotors?

Can you get an temp readout from the Actinium through the esc. Is there any there has experince with this motor and an LRP flow esc regatding the temp readout.

No internal temp sensor, so no

Hey mate,
The "standard" rotor is the 12.5mm high Torque.... There is an optional 12.3mm roar "rpm" rotor and another roar 12.5mm "High Torque+" that has a 1mm longer magnet. There are also 12.4 12.7 and 13mm mod rotors.

Just stick with the stock setup. My FDR is between 4.2-4.5 with timing set around the second last mark. It's actually at peak efficiency around there.

It holds it own and then some against R1 wurks( effectively the same motor) Trinity kill shot, D4 , LRP x20, Gforce, Novak Vulcan, Much more etc. We tested a whole bunch of motors using an Eagle Md2 Dyno and in racing. There is effectively zero real world difference between them.

A friend set a fastest lap at our track with a non roar Muchmore with a 13mm rotor. I beat it with the Actinium. Once you get your motor setup, just concentrate on good tyre and car prep and consistent drives

If you want any tuning/gearing advice then give me a call.

tried a new actinium on the weekend, and it is just gutless......no torque at all

I don't know what all the fuss is about, it is actually my slowest 17.5 and all my other 17.5's were bought 2nd hand. Timing mark 0, and tried advanced all the way up from 2 through to "W" in the team poWers logo. Gone up pinion, gone down pinion. I pulled it apart, and I got a 12.3mm rotor.....WTF....I thought the actinium's come with 12.5mm. This motor was bought new from a store. I assume the first batch or two came with 12.3mm rotors......this could be the reason why it felt so slow.

I run with FDR of 4.06 in 13.5 on a fairly small track at TQ. My timing was just below the Zero mark towards the negative side. I think the straight is 90 feet? Sort of technical. That was this Sunday and the temps were 90 degrees ambient air temp. Plenty of speed/ torque and the motor can temped at 158 with a fan on it. Was using this in a TRF419 with speedo set to blinky.

My motor has the original rotor in it. Not an EAM version either, just the off-shelf Actinum. Very fast motor and no issues.

Default Shims & Bearings

I've heard that adjusting the shims on the rotor and upgrading the bearings would free up some power for this motor. Has anyone tried these options for thus motor?

I run 13.5 XRAY X10 against fantom, EAM and other D4 motor brands.. playing with gearing and taking heat readings as well.. still not as powerful as I would like. Running 88 spur with 35-43 pinions and coming off between 128-176 degrees at full timing.

Mine(13.5) was shimmed by Cristian at ReflexRacing and it is very fast. I run it at the 3rd mark on the + side (about 50*) with a 73-75mm roll out on my X10. temps are 138*-140* F. (Track is about 96x40)

wouldn't you just shim the rotor as close as possible to the sensor board, obviously without touching?

gartman you can find out from his website, just find the actinium motor and you can select options for shimming and re-alignment of sensor board.
