Talking Air Cooled Electric

Actually, I don't want the upper hand....I want the under dog!! I am going back close to my thermal gear ratio - 87/27. I think with the cooling holes in the body it will make the difference. Besides, I don't want to make a drastic gear ratio change if all I needed was a little air cooling.

Thumbs up BMW

The BMW L12 LMR body seems to be the one to help with airflow for the thermalling issue. Even with the duct work and everything on the other bodies, it seems that there is more air flowing through the Beemer. I am going to work on getting some air onto the motor as well.

Had a terrible thermaling issue in the heat of the day during practice I sure am glad that the track was open for practice for 4 hours before the night race so we could try different gearing and finally found the ones that work and figured out that the same gearing that works with the BMW body doesn't work with the Viper body. And once again Silver Cup sorry for setting
your gear mesh a little too tight in the qualifier ( can you say sabotage ) Just kidding about the sabotage part

Post No Worries

No worries Mikey on the gears....You didn't do it any differently than yours. I appreciate you helping me with it anyway.

Thumbs up Beemer

It seems like the BMW L12 LMR body with air ducts cut out promotes longer run time without thermalling issues. It must be because the back of the car is completely open and lets the air through the car the best. We'll see on the hot day coming up on the 3rd.

The Toyota GT1 will work also bad thing about that is that its 300mm.

Talking Bud-Wies-EEERRRR

True, True! GT-! 300mm might be ok....I do think 280 is much better though.

Thumbs up Fireball Racing motor plate

We got some new motor plates from Fireball Racing. They are strong thin and have allot of ventin on them to get rid of the heat from the brushless motor. IF the weather stays nice around here we can get a good test on them this weekend.

Put mine on today it was a perfect fit . I'll be trying different gearing on Sat. I'll be going with a 27/96 which puts me at 9.24 ratio which is down from the 23/87 = 9.83 that I haven't had any problems with . If it doesn't work I'll switch back to what I know works.

Thumbs up Good Heat Sink Motor Plate

Looks like the motor plate is the answer so far. Pete got it thin, strong and it seems to dissipate the heat very well. Track temp was 70 degrees and the motor stayed below 130 degrees and the speed control was around 152 degrees. The true test will be in the heat with a 120+ degree track temp.....then we'll see.
