best of the bunch...ive used Tekin, Novak, Orion..the revtech trumps them all. Close 2nd would be the tekin. I had to gear up slightly coming from those though, went down 1-2 pinon teeth and up 3 spur teeth.

Sounds very good. Any idea what to gear at for a Blitz ESE? My current spur is an 83t?

Anyone notice their solder tabs wiggle a tad?

I would try to get around a 7.5-8 FDR depending on what is allowed in the class. We can run as much boost as you can handle. If you running blinky stock I would go gear down. Most I know run around 27/75 in blinky stock.

Default brushed and brushless 540 motor equivalents!

27t, 19t, 13t, 11t & 8t brushed motors are equal to what brushless motors? Sincerely, Joe

Jim Dieter recommended using pliers and bending the tab over a little to tighten the tabs up a bit.

You mean curl the end over the back side? I never thought of that, pretty good idea actually.

Is there anything wrong with them wiggling a bit? should i open it up and resolder it?

Thanks, I run in stock class were timing is allowed. My sct is a Blitz ESE and spurs are 77t,83t, 88t. My track is indoor clay track, wet/damp, technical with a 80ft straight and lots of turns and jumps (some doubles and triples). I would like starting point setups for blinky with timing and a boosted setup.

6C is no problem. I charge at 20 amps and have had no battery issues.

Default Revtech 17.5 1s with 12.3 high rpm rotor

Would like to get a starting reference point for a Revtech 17.5 (blinky) 1s pancar with a 12.3 high rpm rotor. What is an ideal rollout to start with? Track is 80'x40' in size. Not sure what rollout and timing I should use as a base for testing.

Had a pretty good day racing today with my revtechs.

2wd SCT took 3rd in the Amain. Setup was 26/75, running 2 notches on the can, 50 on esc (5k-15k), 12 turbo and 2 ramps (4 every 1/10th of a second). Pulled off after a qual at 150. The amain i pulled off after 8mins and was 157.

2wd Buggy i had a rough start. On my first practice lap, i came down on the track tubing and hit a giant nail. Broke my shock shaft. I ended up missing the first qual. Took 4th in the 2 qual, was 4th in the Amain and ended up 5th. My buggy was SCREAMING down the straight. Its setup 26/75, 1 notch minus from max on can, max boost (5k-20k) 12 turbo, 2 ramps. Pulled off after my qual and was 142, after my 8min main, was at 151.

How hot can i safely go? I would love to gear down slightly for the huge straight i have.
