I am having an issue with both of my vx3 speedos. When I go to turn them off only the fan goes off and not the speedo. I tried to change the switch and their still doing it.

Default Orca r32x

Ran my 2nd orca r32x for the first time today and had a problem car was fine for practice session but for the qualifying car did 4 laps and cruised to a holt.
no power going to rx that is fine,but when you turn it back on the light comes on blue and red two quick flashes then one long one.
Anyone else have this go ran orca since vxx and had the vx3 which I had to run but just wondering if this is a known fault..

Dear Orca or anyone:

In fact i am looking to purchase B32 esc to run 21.5 and 17.5 blinky tc.
Whenever i downloaded their manual then try to understand how it works then appeared something that i want to be clarified:

What is the difference of punch and punch fine tune?
In case i run 21.5 and 17.5 blinky tc in ETS carpet, could recommend me initial setting:

Punch setting

Brake 3step setting

Best regards

punch sets the level from 1, 2, 3, etc.. punch fine tune is just what it means, if you set punch to say 3, the fine tune adjusts it to 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, etc

What is going on with the 25.5T Blitreme edition motor? Ridiculous in how long it takes to release this one.

Seems to be out and available, eg. at RC-KleinKram (1 in stock)...? This not the one? Or what other kind of "release" are you talking about?

That is the first place I seen this 25.5T version. Waiting for North America here to get them. All the other winds have been out for months.

For 21.5 blinky TC, what is a good starting point for gearing and timing on a 21.5 Blitreme? I will be racing on a large outdoor track with a 180ft straight.

I haven't run a track that size but I can maybe lend some info..

On the endbell between 44-46.5 degrees is usually peak efficient and runs strong and keeps cool. Seems anything above that the motor heats up much to quick. Indoors I usually run a 4.4 FDR with a strong running car, Start with a 4.2-4.3 FDR for that outdoor track and run the alum screws for some nice rpm gains. See where it stands and go gear from there sir.

I have read back through this thread but can't find the info I'm after. Some posts have some of the info but not all (eg timing and FDR but not ESC and class). Also this sub-forum is in the onroad but I can't find a comparable one in the offroad...

I have just bought a B32 and Blitreme 17.5T for my Kyosho Lazer 4wd buggy and have some questions. I have been racing just over a year so some of this will be basic, also I dont have a motor analyser.

Timing - it looks like around 48deg is a good place to start? Seems to be in the middle of suggested ranges, is that about right?
FDR is currenlty 6.5 which was right for the Trackstar Turbo 80a and v1 Trackstar motor (I know, but cheap and cheerful to get me started!). I'm picking I can got for a lower FDR/higher gearing with the new Blitreme? What are others running for a mid sized clay track? (Club runs 8th and 10th scale) I have a range of spurs and pinions so can finetune based on motor temps, but need the start point.

I see people mention changing the screws to ones with a different material for higher rpm? Really? Whats with that, and why wouldn't Orca have just supplied the better ones to start with? Is it a tradeoff for higher rpm/less torque like changing the rotor or magic or what?

I just ran TCS on about at 90' straight running 3.9 FDR so maybe try 4.1-4.5 and temp around 150 or so.

There was a super gt 17.5T blinky race at my local track and I thought I'll give the new blitreme motor a try.

Our race limit the kV rating of our motors to 2400kV, the lowest I can get my motor was 2580kV. It came 31xxkV out if the box which was the same as some 13.5t motor. Needless to say I can't use that motor for the race...Seems like I wasted money on it.
