I have a V1 "the one" 17.5 on 70X35 black carpet..

Tried 4.3Fdr with just a tad over 40* timing, not overly impressed... am I too low or too high?

Been using teampowers v2 17.5 with 4.6Fdr with muchmore jam.


TIA

Assuming you mean 17.5 sedan, set timing at 2nd line past 40* line (which will be VERY close to 48*),start with4.7-4.75ish, check temps, should be somewhat cool, then start gearing up til temps are around 140*-150*. V1's like midrange and upper end where as a V2 likes more rpm's. Hope this helps. V1's are still really good motors.

With last years V1 17.5 with the stock 4 line rotor we ran 48 to 50* of timing and a 4.1 to 4.2 on a 88x40 track with good traction.

Drop a few pinions and give that a try at the same timing.

What gearing should I use on a carpet track that is 100x40 for 17.5 & 21.5?
What timing point should I set it at.
These are the 1 motors.

Thx-John

We were at 44* and a 4.18 FDR in USGT and 4.46 in TC.

You could try 1 pinion less or 1* less timing to start.

Hi,
We have been a little undecided about gearing and roll out we should be using for our 1/12 scales on the size of track we have. We are all running 17.5 "the one" (last year) and the track size is 60x40
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Sorry for the delay getting a post up.. was running oval this weekend

With last years motor and a 4 line 12.5 rotor I would try 42 to 44* of timing and gear down to a 74 to 76mm to start with the stainless fasteners.

We used to run 41* and a 86mm on 98 x 48 tracks with stainless fasteners.

Wow! Very interesting!

We have one guy that is a little faster than everyone else and he keeps saying we should be around 88mm. I was at 81mm and went to 84mm. The car was a dog and lap times got slower. So I went to 79mm and it was better. I found out he has a 17.5 "the one" V2 however. Does that makes sense as to why he has a higher roll out?
This has probably been asked before and I appologize in advance but how do you tell the difference between last years "the one" and this years "the one" V2?

Thanks,

How much timing is he running??
With the V2 with 46 to 48* of timing I'd be starting at a low 70's at your track.
He must be very low timing.

The V2 has a new RPM stator design, internal cooling fins, and heat transfer epoxy. The rotor is slightly longer and stronger too.

On short tracks I like timing and a small pinion

VanBee, I run on a track that is identical to yours. The suggestion from SG1 above is spot on for the V1. Regarding the one driver, just make sure he is not cutting the track.

Not sure what timing he's running.

I'm no expert but in the effort of trying to keep up and playing with the timing/rollout, I tried the same thing. I turned the timing up and put on the smallest pinion I could. I was still around 78mm however and don't really think I was getting any benefit from it as I was sluggish out of the corners. The motor never seemed to get up into the powerband quick enough.
My next adjustment will be getting the rollout down to 74mm as you suggest. I'll get back to you after Sunday to see if it helped. Thanks for your help.
