Are you using a motor checker or the timing marks on the motor? Which wind motor are you asking about? 17.5 or 13.5?

For stock I'll assume its 17.5. The timing should be 38-40* which will just be about the first notch on the timing mark. Gearing I can't say for certain, but think you will probably be 3-4 teeth less than what you normally run.

Wow, so these motors take much less gearing than a Fantom? I'm running 17.5 stock buggy with a Fantom Type M and R at 69/29-31

You can also try these links for tuning tips.

Its all really selective on your part to what timing and gearing will work best. I'd start with the 38-40 timing and gear 2 less than you ran before and see what its like, then adjust from there. The tips applications are pretty good for all vehicles so don't be too concerned that is says TC opposed to what you are running. The timing I suggested is due to the heavier vehicle.

Be careful w/ end bell timing on the V7. Those motors have much more timing built into the can than newer versions. I haven't run mine in awhile, but I can check mine tonight on the motor analyzer and post back. Or someone else will probably post the info before that!

I ran the v7 17.5 in my stock buggy for a few laps last night at 30 degrees timing at 69/28. Absolute rocket. Unbelievable. Was too fast actually for this really tight layout at a hi bite indoor track

Hey Gary,

I'm looking at maybe a 21.5 for usgt; are the new V11 2017 high torque?; 12.5 rotors? I won't ask how they compare to motiv. I just don't want to have to buy a motor and then further tune with a ht rotor. Any suggestions is appreciated.

I'd try 50* on can and a 93mm rollout as a starting point.

So what will be a good starting point with the 17.5 v15 on gearing and what kind of rollout for a 12 scale in the 13.5 v15 this will put me in a good place
