the first two are out of box, next one is at 48. The rotor is floating in a neutral state with about .010 end play, and is about a tiny bit more than a header card off the sensors. I just looked at your numbers again, thsr has got to be a 17.5.

Hi there guys , how's it going ? Quick question for u guys , what do u guys run for Fdr with the Xfactor 17.5 ? I recently bought 2 certified versions of these bad boys and I'm not too pleased with the performance of them . Motor ran pretty hot outta the box ! Motors had no spacing at all ! Is it suppose to be like that ?

i have been running mine for a few weeks now and you have to drop a few pinions compared to the monstermax . i have mine set at 50 degrees and im geared at a 4.78FDR (TC) in a medium size outdoor track. alot faster than the monster max temps are coming off around 150 degrees. As far as the spacing you should have a little play on the rotor, its a easy fix just remove a shim but always check that the sensor board doesnt touch the rotor. I have tried at 45 degrees timing at a 4.2 FDR and it felt pretty good but at 50 seems to work better.
