We would need to look at resistance values, sensor readings, and rotor numbers to tell.

The bearings do look like the hybrid ceramic ones.

This is the printout that came with it, can you tell if it's the 1 version from this?

Are you talking about the current version?

If so, yes.

On smaller to medium sized indoor carpet tracks timing around 42* to start seems to work the best.

Where would you be running and what vehicle?

Just let us know what surface, size of track, and vehicle when you order and the timing will be set accordingly

There's a "notes" section on the website you can put all the info.

Is this the 702 raceway?
I'd go 104mm rollout

1/12th 1s 17.5 the one v2...rollout on black carpet technical, 3 stripe rotor, about 40x60? Timing 47 or so. 8.5 sec laps when things are going well when it was gray carpet.

Thanks!!

That is a small track! I don't know if the 3 line rotor would be best choice.
We typically run a 4 line in 12th with the V2 with much less timing.
If you are staying with the 3 line and 47* I would start really low...lol.. Maybe 60's RO
On our 88x40 track I'm typically at 42* with the 4 line and a high 70's RO

Thanks much for that. Yes, when we hit laps in the 8s itís crazy fast around the track and a whole lot of turning. That timing gave me the attached:
Where should I be at? I was really looking at kv. Oh, and I rechecked the rotor...it is indeed the 4 stripe (couldnít remember what I had in there).

I don't look at the KV or free rev RPM as an end all tell all.
I like to use the motolyser as a reference for timing and see how the sensors are, then I check the motor on the dyno to see what it is under load.
Also.. If you are running 12th scale, have you tried an input voltage of 4.2V? There are times I see a variation in readings (timing and sensor deviation) from 8v to 4.2v.

Try the lower timing (42* ish) and a 60's RO.
If it is slugish off the turn drop in gearing.
If it peaks off quickly and runs cool you can add gear or a degree or so of timing.
I wouldn't go below 42*, Under a load that seemed to be the lowest timing without losing power.
You can actually go too low and the motor drops power
