Reason being that I never bothered doing that until today, when after 6 mins the can temp was 155F but the temp inside (through vent holes) was 170F. Is this reason to worry or should I aim for an "internal" temp of 160F?
I literally run the same motor setup but with about a 3.75-3.8 FDR. After a good 6-minute run the outer can temperature is about 160F. Inside is normally up to 180F, and I have never noticed a drop in performance with those temps (with regards to during the run and over a long period of time).

Should be 1/8 x 3/8 x 5/32.

Here are the Duo/revtech series rotors spec..

12.3- Dark purple = High Torque
12.3- Purple(Stock) = Broad Power
12.3-Light Blue = High RPM

12.5 - Dark Blue = High Torque
12.5 - Gray = Broad power
12.5 - Pink = High Rpm

The Black rotors are all spec rotors and actually have less magnetic feild then the silver rotors(mod) even though the measure out the same size and can fit in either mod or stock stators.. reason being is that the rotors have different size cores meaning the silver is thicker which creates more mag feild in return more torque and less RPM and more batt usesage... Which it is also illegal at most races..

Default Revtech 4Xs quad 540 4 pole 4800kv 5mm shaft

I sent a few emails regarding this motor. no response. I had a bearing fall apart on the sensor board side and I can't get the housing out. the motor failed on my second 5 min.qualifier and the temp was 120. Any help would be great .

thanks

When I called them about my motor I was informed that they were moving there office that was taking care of any issues, so that may be the hold up with them. I hope they get it all taken care of by the time I get back from Afganistan so I can run my truck again.

Hi guys,just wondering if anyone has a good FDR for a revtech 21.5 boosted running Orion esc, for a medium size asphalt track with a t3 12.
What difference would you make if running a 12.5 high torque rotor as well?
Just trying to get my head around all this.
Cheers.

This does not match what the Trinity page says:
http://www.trinityrc.net/shop/index....ry&path=72_103

12.3 - Dark blue = High torque
12.3 - Purple = Broad power
12.3 - Blue = High RPM

12.5 - Turquoise = High torque
12.5 - Silver = Broad power
12.5 - Pink = RPM

However, I ordered a turquoise (12.5 high torque, TEP1112) and it measures 12.3mm, exactly the same as the stock purple rotor. So now I'm real confused. Have they got the wrong description on their site, or did I get a mis-labeled rotor?

I've had very good luck buying rotors and stators from Fantom. Also, EA ( Eric Anderson ) is very reputable but I am no longer sure if he still distributes trinity / Epic / Revtec products.
