For the Revtech 21.5 3.7 FDR 17.5 4.1 FDR. This is on a track with around a 100' straight. I don't have a slot machine yet but this should be a solid starting point.

overall about the same with a better bottom end , 4.05 FDR worked out pretty well still trying out different timing settings but 47degrees on the motorlyzer the motor came off at 135 degrees with 149.2 degree track temps

Trinity ESCs are made by ZTW, just like Pro Performance, Fantom, Reds, Team Powers, ETC. I even use my Pro Performance programmer on my Trinity ESC. They said in one of their videos a 1s version will be coming later, but didn’t mention a timeline as far as I remember.

I picked up a 13.5 slot machine at the hobby shop a week ago. I reached out to Trinity and they said team drivers are running around 46 degrees of timing and are up 4 teeth on their pinion from what they were running on their xfactors.

Has anyone experienced issues with the new sensor board/bearing design?

I have a 1 year old revtech 5.0, the bearing on the sensor board side got pushed in causing the rotor to eat the hall sensors. This broke the stator and esc in the process.

Another racer purchased a slot machine 17.5 and experienced the same issue. Did not cause any further damage beyond the sensorboard.

Both instances were with a touring car. No major impacts with either cars and the bearings were not removed from the sensor board assembly prior to running. The design is flawed allowing this to happen as the bearing is not backed and can allow the rotor to be pushed into the sensor board. This isn't an issue with the previous trinity motors.

I’ve been trying to find the “sweet spot” for my 21.5 slot machine for a couple weeks now. I’m running gt12 1s rubber tires on crc black carpet. No one else at my track is using the slot machine. Any ideas or suggestions would be helpful. Thanks

I should also say that the motor has the red high torque rotor installed. Does that make any difference on what timing I should set it to?

I haven't tried the red rotor in it yet but I would probably say to set it at 48 and just gear it 3 teeth higher than you usually would with say, an Xfactor.

This is true, both my 13.5 and 17.5 car are at minimum 2 teeth up. Even on a pretty small track. Medium to Large track I can easily see that tall of a gear.
