Designed specifically for smooth power delivery for all track sizes and conditions, these rotors will work in R4 and R5 Team Power Products motors.  Comes in protected tube with extra shims. If you buy a new R5 motor, and choose the 'Extra Rotor' option, the rotor price is discounted at time of purchase! NOTE: These rotors require experienced motor build skills to install correctly. As with all competition components, there is no warranty!

I now have five sizes of rotors available for the modified winds (12.0mm, 12.3mm, 12.5mm, 13.0mm, and 13.5mm). Each have a purpose:

     Rotor Description
    12.0mm TPP55120
    • 12.0mm - The smallest option rotor I have. It has a specific purpose: high speed on large smooth tracks or extra slippery tracks, (low grip). Can work with low wind motors to reduce torque but have high top end. The acceleration out of corners will feel 'very soft'. Requires re-gearing and re-timing to assure motor cooling.
    12.3mm TPP55123
    • 12.3mm - More traditional of the smaller option rotors, more torque than the 12.0mm rotor. If you need the high speed of 7.0, 7.5, 6.5, 6.0, and 5.5 motors but need lower torque to keep from blowing tires away during cornering, then this rotor is the ticket. Top end will be increased and torque will be reduced, compared to a 12.5 rotor. Acceleration, especially low speed corner, will be 'soft'. Requires re-gearing and re-timing to assure motor cooling.
    12.5mm TPP55125
    • 12.5mm - The most drivable rotor with good torque for most tracks and conditions. The 'standard' ROAR rotor size, and . Recommended starting point for ALL motors.
    13.0mm TPP55130
    • 13.0mm - Option rotor best used in 5.0, 4.5, 4.0, 3.5, and 3.0 drag motors. Have tested them in higher wind modified motors (7.0, 7.5, 6.0, 6.5) on oval tracks with good results; top end will suffer but pulls hard out of corner with a amp draw increase. This rotor out torques the 12.5mm rotor by a large margin, will need to use the ESC to add timing as the car speeds up for best results. Requires re-gearing and re-timing to assure motor cooling.
    13.5mm TPP55135
    • 13.5mm - Monster torque in option rotors! The airgap is just .5mm (about 0.020"), which really puts the torque to the road! Definite loss of top end unless you use the ESC to bring timing in as RPM increases as well as a major leap in amp draw. Use this rotor for drag racing in 4.5, 4.0, 3.5, and 3.0 motors. Requires re-gearing and re-timing to assure motor cooling.
