You can go two ways with this....

42/43* and a low 4.1 to start

OR

50/51* and a 5.0 to start

Two totally different ways, but both seem to work well

No I was able to place my order the day after I posted this. Thank you for the follow up.

I think I have been overheating my motor and now the brakes don't seem to work that well. Can I fix the problem by buying a new rotor? Stator? Sensor board?

Lucky you. Mine just seemed slow coming out of the box especially compared to the local top driver who has the same motor. He blows by me on the straights even with the SAME gearing, battery and electronics.

My motor is/was straight up balls to the wall fast. That sucks that yours is slow. Did you pay for all the options?

Do you also run the same car??? If so, recheck your drivetrain, bearings, etc.....It does not take much to make a big difference....

Not the same car: Associated B6 vs. 2018 Xray XB2. Both have ceramic bearings and same tires. I even charged at 8.7V just to see if it would make a big difference; it didn't. I wanted to think that he, due to his superior driving ability, had better exit speed from the previous corner before the long straight. But that wasn't the case. Simplistically, if we were to drag race, he'd blow by me. Since he's a sponsored driver (and I'm not), I am assuming that he was the beneficiary of additional secret sauce that we mortals don't have access to regardless of funds. It was like 25+ years ago when sponsored drivers had SCR batteries and "stock-ish" motors when they weren't even available to the general public yet. It's actually a bit disheartening... Way back when I was still in college, I felt like I couldn't compete due to lack of funds. Now that I can literally buy anything at any price (with wife approval, that is), I still can't play at a fair level since I don't believe these items are available to me. The whole stock class is a joke. And I'm insane to think otherwise after all these years. At least I take some solace that my real car is a zillion times faster than his or even anyone else's at the track.

Well a different car will not have the same total rotational inertia or mass, etc... The best way to know if your problem is the motor, not the truck, is to ask the fast guy to try your motor in his car. If it stays a missile, then your car is at fault and you'll have to weigh the whole drivetrain, cut weight , or get another car..... Good luck.....
