Default Testing motors

I have the much more motor master and am wondering how do you figure out torque from the numbers it gives you, and if you cant what does a guy have to get to figure this stuff out

I am not sure that Dyno can measure torque. I believe that is a motor checker where it will check RPM, and Amp draw, and adjustable voltage settings. CE makes a motor dyno, as well as Fantom. Both of these have torque settings.

You could probably calculate it, but realy the measurements need to be under load I would guess.

Yoiu can't calculate torque with MM motor maste, the RPM # can give you some rough idea of gear ratio, while the amp # means very little, Ok if the motor draws 20 amps, then you know somethings is wrong(bad comm, shorted endbell, etc).other than that, don't use the amp# to judge motor's performance. The MM motor master is not a Dyno, good for run in motor though.
