What is the highest RPM that a 23T motor can do?? And why it is so low compare to a moster 27T?
Also, does anyone know what is the timing deg on the RZ, because I don't think it is 24deg.
Thanks in advance
Well lets see if I can help you..
the highest RPM a 23T motor can do?? well I have a few yokomo LR`s that can turn over 43000rpm
as far as low rpm on your RZ compared to a 27T motor..the RZ has to be gear very different than a 27T...but it will be just as fast with more torque than a 27t motor due to the fact that the cars are very diiferent on the 23T ..for example the 27T rotor is very light about 35 grams on average
due to the split type laminations..and the 23T rotor will always have a full stack rotor that is about 52 grams on average... so due to the fact that the 27t rotor is lighter it has a bunch more RPM..but what it gains in rpm it`s loosing in torque..
Basically I would put any 23T motor against any 27T motor...or19T motor that "I" own any day of the week...much more of a solid motor
as fas as the timing goes the 23T motors have only 20 deg of timing
