Amazingly smooth and yes, more RPM than what I was used to. Managed to get the overall win in AOC Philippines using 17.5T blinky in 1/10 TC.

Gear at the shorter end of the range that the manual suggests as the motor loves to rev, the shorter ratio will give it more rip down low.

In general what timing setting were you using and if known, what kind of amp draw?

Shorter end? Can you explain what you mean by that?

Pretty sure he means higher FDR to help keep motor reving. I am going to start at 4.4 and see where it ends up.

G3 is a major difference from g2. G3 is run by many pros in Europe and ty tessman as well.

what were the number differences when you did the V10 at the same 6amp or vice versa with the G3?

Do you feel the 6amp setting is the more close to optimal where you will end up with the G3? Seems a lot of newer motors these days the optimal setting is less than the 6 amp thing so curious.

I am going to sit down and find the optimal timing for the G3. I think I am fairly close as it jumped to 7 amps with only a minor increase. I was around 52 degrees. The G2 at 5 amps was the optimal point. I also have another 17.5 G3 to test.

HW V10 G3 6.5t seems to like best round 40 degrees timing (stock 30). More punch and still faster.

Little update. Turned the timing down a tad. Didn’t measure it but it would be around 50 degrees timing. FDR was 4.6 on a small indoor black carpet track. Motor came off between 140-160F. The acceleration is visible of the car coming out of the corner. Happy with them so far.
