Is the difference between the early Monster motors with the red insulators and the newer ones with the red insulators removed noticeable?

Yes, very noticable.

I am in need of a 21.5 motor for 1s oval racing. The only rule we have is that it needs to be a 21.5 motor. Should I get a Monster max or some variant of the " Big Blue " series? If big blue is the answer, which version should I get. Looking for the fastest 21.5 I can get my hands on. Thanks!

Default appropriate timing/amp draw and fdr for monster max 17.5t please?

Hi
I recently bought a TEP1506X1 monster max 17.5t motor, on recommendation of the local distributor here in australia, for 4wd buggy.
I was suggested setting timing at 50 degrees and fdr of about 6.0-6.4, for our largish outdoor tracks, but the motor was just getting too hot within a 5 minute race and fading. I do run a fan.
Other drivers were saying that an fdr of about 5.5 was good for their motors, but I was under the impression the newer gen motors need lower gearing to make up for higher revs?

Can anyone help with most appropriate timing/amp draw and fdr please?

Drop down to around 42 on the timing. It seems to be the sweet spot.

Default 24k 17.5 certified plus

Will a 1-cell 17.5 24k certified plus also work on a touring car? Other than preset timing, is the 1-cell motor any different from those for 2-cell applications?

I'm interested in purchasing the discounted 1-cell motors from Amain but i will use it on my touring car. Sorry if this was asked before, didn't read through the whole thread

Yes, it will work fine. It's just "tuned" for 1-cell. You can use it with a 2-cell.
