I am ready to upgrade from stock but stay brushed a little confused on how many turns to go to and then if I need gear change with different turned motor. All suggestions and combos will be appreciated. Still sort of new here but learning fast
thats the most common suggestion on here. i just ordered mine yesterday... i hope they get them in soon. they have been backordered for a while.
as for gearing. start with a pinion with 2 teeth less than the number of turns on the motor and adjust as needed based on temperatures. the smaller the pinion the lower the temps, but also slower speed.
pengwin......Is the orion motor compatible with the Slash stock ESC?
How much more power do you get compared to the stock motor?
stock esc is ok with this motor it is well within the 15turn 540 size. because its a 17 turn.
great info pengwin
One last question, which battery ( the most powerful ) can the stock ESC and orion motor take?

yes pengwin told you the best bang for your buck. other than brushless.

get a good seven cell. the esc will handle higher but you will burn up your motor alot faster i believe.
I run 8cell nimh regulary, and i also have a 3S lipo i run sometimes, as for now with stock motor. Seems to handle it very well, and gives a good punch..
