If it runs cool and needs a bit more rip then try advancing the timing a few degrees.
Just mark the can where it is now so you can go back to that known number.
I have been liking slightly higher timing and higher FDR, motor has more rip and doesn't fade much (maybe .2)

I will definitely try that. Kinda weird how before the FDR was below 4.0 and now its above 5.0 in these motors. Thanks for the advice.

V3 on a flowing track about 80x40 timing around 46* or so to start and low 80's RO
If the track is smaller you may find 50 to 52* and mid to high 70's
Larger tracks mid to high 80's 48* or so

Hi guys,

I just received my TSR V3 the1 17.5t today. I'm in search of a starting point for timing and gearing. I will be using the motor in 2wd buggy, carpet, 90ft straights.
This is my first TSR motor and I'm thrilled to be running it. The timing was set at 57degr. which seems to be high since I've been using Motiv, R1, Maclan at around 45 to 49 degr., and mostly running between 6.1 to 6.5 fdr's.
So, any help would be great finding a starting point with timing and gearing(fdr). Thank you guys.

these motors like a lot of timing, and low gear compared to other models

Guys are running a 72 spur with a 26 pinion on really tight/technical infields and up to a 31 pinion on big flowing tracks.
That's with a B6.1 with a 2.6 tranny

TSR v3 motors now available in the UK and have also been submitted for BRCA approval. Itís a shame that they are sold out.

Default Looking for FDR and timing for a track with 180 ft straight

Running 2018 Xray T4's in usgt and vta with 21.5 & 25.5 v3 "the one" in both. Just spent a difficult day at the track trying to get a good fdr and timing setting. 21.5 also pulled up a screw which pretty much ruined a rotor. Getting in the ballpark fdr wise would be a big help right now.

Are you able to check the rotor strength to verify the rotor is still OK?

As for timing and gearing...
I like high FDR's in 25.5 and lots of timing
That typically works on 80 to 120' straights and just change a gear or 2.
For example up at the Canadian Nats I ran a 4.99 with 57* in VTA, but my tires were really big and ballooned.
Motor was only 110 to 120*F
You could go that route, mid 50's and add some gear till you find the sweet spot.
I'd guess a 4.6 or 4.7 with big tires.
The other way to go is lower timing..
In F1 I ran the V3 25.5 with 38 to 40* and went 6 teeth higher and had great bottom end and top speed.
So if you went low timing you may end up 3.9/4.0 or so.

On to 21.5... lol...

That motor likes to be around a 4.3 to 4.5 on most tracks and swing the timing around.
Try 48 to 50* to start and work your way up.
It didn't seem to work just piling on the gear with that motor, it likes a bit less gear and more timing.

These are motolyser numbers, not can numbers.
John shoulda sent sheets with the motors.. see what timing they are at and mark the can, then you know what the timing was and swing it from there.
