Sorry more Qs

I got my new checkpoint TC1030 today and it has a motor test function to quote the manual "The test will automatically start with an output of 1.20V applied for 5sec and will then be increased by 1.2V until terminal voltage (7.2V) is reached." For each voltage applied to the motor the "avg" and "pk" (peak) output currents are tracked and displayed.

I have 2 new motors and ran them both with the following results:

Monster 27T
...........AVG.....PK
1.2V.....7.4......9.7
2.4V.....6.0......12.6
3.6V.....7.1......14.4
4.8V.....8.2......15.9
6.0V.....8.9......17.4
7.2V.....9.6......18.4

CO27 ProTweaked
...........AVG......PK
1.2V.....6.1.......8.3
2.4v.....4.9.......10.6
3.6v.....5.8.......12.1
4.8v.....6.7.......13.2
6.0v.....7.3.......13.8
7.2v.....8.1.......15.7

I assume that they are using the correct meaning of current and that the ouput shown above is output amps? but what does it all mean in terms of the performance of the motor?

Uh oh, Matt hit "mid-life" R/C crisis.

Matt, I'm sure if you were out here racing with us, you'd still be just as good as you were when you were kickin' everybodies butt at Englishtown.

hey guys, does anyone know if the LCD driveshaft from the JRXS will work on the type R? My kit has a dogbone that the pin is not centered, and it won't set in the diff correctly. I've been waiting 5 days now for horizon to send the replacement, but I'm not holding my breath with them, lol.

You need the long driveshaft to use the type r narrow diffs.

I found the kit today at MicroCenter but paid full price. This stuff is REALLY cool, especially in all the difference sizes. I'm considering wiring all my electronics with wires that are exactly the right length and covering them all in this shielding. Combine that with some of these plugs/wires at the right length, and you've got a seriously cool wiring setup.

Now, if Spektrum would just release that small, blue, secret brushless ESC, I'd be set for bench racing! :-D

Matt was like Kryptonite at E-town, any week he showed up to race ... everyone else would fall apart at the seams, myself included. The only time I ever finished ahead of him, he responded by talked his then sponsor XIPP into picking me up.

Matt, look on the bright side ..... some of these fast guys were gunning for you in the late 90's, you helped raise their game back then.

Default Spool or One-way for Rubber/carpet

Hi All,

I drive my Type R exclusively on carpet with rubber tires. I ordered spool pulleys (42T and 41T) for the car (which just got here), and was really waiting for a one-way.. I recently heard that the "racing elite" are now running spools for rubber tire on carpet.. I'm not just talking about us non-team Type R guys that can't get a one-way, but even the XRAY and MI-3 guys, etc..

Can any of the folks that go to the big races confirm this?


Mark

i tried both and i always thought the one way felt much better for rubber tire carpet it felt like with the spool the car wanted to pivot around the front tires too much in my opinion
