Thank you for your help Timmey
The real tell tale sign for how good a motor is to put it on the track. However, if the motor spins up freely, measuring the amp draw at a fixed voltage, say 2 volts, could give you a rough indication of the health of the motor. If you really want to 'dyno' a motor on a bench, you really do need a load dyno to give some proper feedback. Testing the motor at no load really doesn't give any indication of track performance.
