If you zoom enough into the pics online, you'll see the difference.

Torque: https://www.associatedelectrics.com/..._17_5t_torque/

Yes, you can also outfit either of the motors with the 27415 high torque rotor.

Legend. Thank you so much for the detailed reply. I can see the lines you’re talking about.
Have you tried the high torque rotor in the standard motor? Do you lose a lot of top end?

Yes, ran both the Standard and High Torque rotor in the Original 17.5 motor in TC. I found there to be only a small difference between them. Not enough to time or gear them differently, and the temperature was in the same ball park.
The High torque Stator makes a much bigger difference. You can see the RPM drop on the motor checker. With the stock rotor, I had to go up a bit on both timing and gearing.

The S-Plus 17.5 Standard product page suggests starting with 4.60:1/35° FDR/timing for TC; are those also good starting points for the Torque version?

The Torque version needs more gear. I'd suggest gearing up 2 teeth and a little more timing to start: 4.3:1 and 38°
As always, check it after a couple of minutes of running to be safe when trying a new setup.

Smile the need for speed

i am liking your discussion. we just ran our first carpet race of the season and i'm struggling for some speed in 21.5T touring car. i've been running the HT rotor but i'm at 40 degrees timing and 3.88 fdr. our straight is 90 ft long. my temps are getting high so trying a lower timing might be something to try. i will continue to watch this discussion.

I'm also in the market for a new motor. Our track layout is loaded up with tight turns and hairpins. Surface is high grip carpet, tires are USGT spec, and the car is an Xray X4. Weight of the car all in is 1260 grams. The straight the length of a standard school gym. So I need something that will throw me out of the corners like a bullet.

It's called Scale Spec. It was supposed to be like USGT, but it's sort of morphed into a blend of touring stock/touring mod now. Scale Spec drivers are now cutting low 8 second laps, putting them smack dab into the touring mod class times.
