Very happy customer here.

Warren can answer the rotor question as he picked it out for me, but I ran a 3.56 FDR (Xray T3 - 92/49). Your track is shorter, so you may want to start one tooth less and see if it is tops out too early at the end of the longest straight. If it does and the motor comes off at a reasonable temperature (say, less than 140deg. with a fan) go up another tooth.

You got it. He can also give you an idea of how much timing to run. I am at work right now, so I don't have the motor in front of me.

Im guessing the variety of discharge options are so the customer can select a rate that matches up with what he/she typically discharges/tests their batteries at.

For instance, if you have data on all your current batteries at 25Amps, a 35Amp test wouldn't be very useful to you. Thus, allowing the buyer to select the discharge rate provides much more useful information. Granted, you are still talking about data from 2 different machines/sources.... but the point remains.

As to what the best option is if you are just starting to collect data, I don't have an answer there....

I believe them to be 2.5x6mm... I know 2mm is too small and 3mm is too big.. sorry to be vague. Im sure someone in the 'know' will correct if I'm in error.. hope it helps...

Apex is based on the revtech which is great for blinky classes, and with the 12.5 HT rotor is awesome. I have several of these and they are great. The ION 3 is based on the older D3, but the new ION4 is based on the new D3.5. I have not used the D3.5's yet but guys I race with say they are super fast, and run cooler.
