the 13mm rotors are only ROAR legal in Modified racing. They are not legal for any spec classes.

They look good too. Numbers are very nice as well.

Hi I recently purchased x2 works edition apex v2 21.5 motors. I'm trying to understand what the numbers mean on the sticker of the motor. These are the two motors:

21.5 apex v2 HT stator, 12.5ht rotor
rpm 8716 @5.0v
power 31w @5.2k
torque 78.8nmm

21.5 apex v2 rpm stator, 12.5rpm rotor
rpm 10273 @5.0v
power 34w @5.0k
torque 83.9nmm

Now taking the figures for face value it would seem that my RPM/RPM combo is far superior in that it makes more rpm, torque and power (or is power how much power it is consuming?) Based on those numbers am I right to assume that at the same gearing the RPM motor would outperform the torque one? Love to hear some explanation of the figures.

Thanks

Could anybody tell me since discard the motor homologation, which 21.5 motor is the best to run blinky TC on this track?

Best regards

I would go with ApexV2 21.5 RPM stator and a 12.5HT rotor

Why not with ION or even with Outlaw due the bigger rotor?
How about with ht stator?

The Ion4(D3.5) is the 1st motor in this series(13.5,17.5,etc) that I can't recommend. I personally had over heating issues with the 21.5 wind for some reason while the 13.5 and 17.5 you could push them all day and blow peoples doors off. The Apex2 is similar to the older Revtech series and motor has been reliable. Just don't go past the 55 degree timing mark on the endbell and I would start with 45 degrees or so and advance slowly checking your results and/or heat after each race. At the last snowbirds, the F1 winner was running the Trinity Killshot 21.5 in the same combo as I mentioned earlier and he must have had a reason for this motor over D3.5 21.5.
Of course, the outlaw rotor would be faster but nowhere is it legal that I know off.
As far as ht stator, I don't like that combo in F1. For me, it overpowered the amount of traction available especially with a 12.5HT rotor but if you want to save a few dollars the HT stator and 12.3bb you can get in a combo. You should be alright with that combo if you are on carpet with at least medium traction, on asphalt forget it.

In the rulebook has not the matters what kind of motor, since is 21.5 then is fine, the only they banned are just Corally RED and Jet R motors.
About the problem on F1 i don't have any clue with them, but I run TC which is better on handling, but F1 is lighter.
Thanks for help!

I am running an Ion4 8.5 with the optional 12.0 rotor in my 2whl.
It really helped smooth the motor out for lower grip tracks.

To me offroad is the only application that i can get the high speed rotors to work. i run a 7.5 with the high RPM 12.3mm rotor and it really tames the bottom end, great for 2wd buggies. 11.5 may soften it up a bit too much and keep in mind that the high speed rotors do not like static timing.

I run the 12.0 Mod rotor, the 12.3 high rpm is a Spec rotor.
There is a pretty big difference between the mod and spec rotor.

The 12.0 still has more then enough grunt for 2whl, more then the 12.3 spec rotor and not nearly as much as the 12.5 Mod rotor.

The 11.5 Mod rotor would be good on a really slick track.
