hm ... those numbers looked ok ....
try gettin it dynoed urself and check the numbers with other 9 turns might not be the same but ... atleast u have an idea about it
hehe alvin ...WRONG a Reedy Rage cant keep up with me
even with the same gearing ... hehe mine's a 540 tamiya black can....
BUT a green machine with 5.8 ratio is preety much faster then me but the motor might burn out ....( ever smelled copper burning)
14x2 at 8:1 FDR? thats wierd i gear my 13x2 at 7.6 and i complain its slow .... normally i use 6.8 FDR but motor is BURNING hot
what motor is urs ?? btw long is ur strights ??..
have u skimmed the comm? dynoed the motor ??
btw try the higher peformance brushes this kind of brushes might ruin ur comm i ruined mine cause i used these long lasting + cheap brushes
actually they dont last that LONG lasting either
try shimming the motor, use better brushes and cut the comm it will enable the motor to have better spool up + better power so u will reach the top speed faster ... if u haven done this try it ... but if u have ... u need a slower motor LOL
also try slightly harder springs on the + side
most motors like this
with a 8.1 gearing on a 14 turn ... it should reach top speed almost imidiately .....
the more u try to preserve the motor ... the faster u will ruin it ...
if u want to REALLY take care of it .... do it the normal way ... cut the comm, use good brushes, gear it right
use good brushes - does not mean u need high silver content for good brushes.
get brushes from GM racing - the BASHING around brushes ... not the competition ones u will see the diffrence ... the comm does not have rough spots here and there in a long run ...
well i bought some brushes for a cheap price and i ruined my comm in 2 runs
hehe these brushes cos me RM 16 which means S$7++ or usd 5++
heh LHS only carries stock for the normal sized brushes ..
mine is kinda slightly oversized
ok anyone agree with me that a 14 turn should REACH top sped imidiately with a 8:1 FDR?? i mean my 13 turn reach top speed out of turns if its at 8:1 gearing ...
