I got one from BRooD at It's an awesome motor. U have to gear it to the moon compared to other motors. I am running 39mm of rollout when people with cameleon's are running 31mm of rollout.

i have had some pretty good luck with my Orion - i have found it is a little more efficient than my C2 or Reedy....

From what i have found you will gear it up most likely2-3 teeth from your C2 and maybe one tooth less than the Reedy (which I have found you have to gear to the moon to make it come alive - i am not a motor guru, but this is what i have found to work the best for me...

I'd say screw ratios and go with rollouts. You can't get screwed with rollout cause it applies to any size tire. Rubber tires also vary in diameter but no one cares about that.

Anyways, assuming it's the element spec 19, yes, as above 2-3 teeth bigger pinion than the C2.

2-3 teeth higher to start with a regular endbell Element. If you have a V2 element you need to get some sprint edge brushes and some stiff MR springs and gear it up an additional 2 teeth over the regular element.

been speaking to guys in Europe who use this motor quite often,

they say to use the hardest springs you can get your hands on with the enduro (non edge) brushes.
