Happy face outside, evil inside. I think I may have clipped the boards and/or the competition a few times.

Monkey, looks like my body after today's running session, lol. Lots of roll overs and board contacts.

Default TCS special motor

I'm currently running an R1 in TCS mini and looking to try the killshot motor. Anyone care to shed some light on the needed configuration? RPM motor? TORQUE Stator with RPM rotor? I'm a little lost at this point and would not want to invest incorrectly (assuming someone is willing to provide their findings?)

I remember something to the effect of torque stator, rpm rotor locally being used by some of the fast gt3 guys in there tc's. I never did or could justify buying 2 motors at the time to make 1. But seems allot of tc guys do just this mixing and matching. Maybe those fast mini guys do too.

I'd stick with the R1. Killsots are sensitive to heat and too light. The R1 is a heavier motor thereby the need to add weights all over to make 1300 grams.

Made a post a while back about a t-shirt asking if anyone was interested so I decided to follow up. I made a m-chassis t-shirt and so far only 2 are ordered, a minimum of 10 need to be ordered for them to be printed so if you'd like one there only $15 for a short sleeve and $20 for a long. Available in black,navy,and forest green. Only 4days left to get one!

Thanks,
Trevor

Hey guys - I've been out of the Mini scene for awhile now...Is it true that the Tamiya TCS Rules for the BASIC Tamiya M-Chassis Class racing is 21.5 brushless motor / blinky ESC now? No more Tamiya ESC / Silver Can Motor?

Just out of curiosity - how fast is an M03 with a 20 tooth pinion and a 21.5 brushless motor compared to the kit Silver Can motor with a 20 tooth pinion?

Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Has anyone come up with Ver.II setups involving droop yet? I've started adjusting things blindly. It's working so far.

If you don't put any timing in the motor then they are very close, in fact the silver can is a little faster. If you turn the timing up in the motor to "the manufacturer’s maximum timing mark" (which is TCS legal), then the brushless motor is much faster. In my opinion, they are too fast like that.

Good luck in your motor testing. Clearly some 21.5 motor combinations are better than others.
