Now that would be great. They can hand out only the GT3 motors (silver can or the RS 540). Who do we talk to!

HI Dan,

I remember you are the one that run in the MINI class in Tamiya's TCS right??
I remember your car was blazing fast!!! Since MINI class has fixed gearing, gotta be the motor. What's your secret with those Silver Can motor?? Do you mind sharing the information? Thanks.

PDR who is this?

Set-up was 3/4 of it the car rolled through the turns and was super free.
Voltage was another I had 7.30 discharge packs
The last was keeping the motor clean not just sprayed out but I polish the comm with a copper cleaner and take any glazing off the comm and brush.
Also lube the bushings with a synthetic I prefer Tribo for lube and comm drop

Not rocket science but it worked for me
Hope it helps, Dan

It's always been the "Burien motor secret" down at Nats

And took quite few years to put it all together and prove it on the dyno and track.
Kind of irrelevant now that most of the Tamiya classes have moved away from it but it will help those in GT3 and Mini also TL01 spec at the various regionals this year

PDR is just the city I live in. Playa Del Rey FYI. I was at Tamiya TCS race in August, and raced in MINI class. I remember your car were unbeatable on the straights and runs super smooth. I think you even beat the GT2 time or come very close to it with the MINI.

I was going to ask you about the motor at the track back then, but didn't really get a chance to do so.

So how do you go about taking the glaze off the comm and brush? did you just dip the whole motor in a copper cleaner?

Thanks

I water dip the motor to brak the brush in then use a copper paste on the com to de-glaze spin til clan and flush it out

Now I know where you live but who is it?

Dan

Finally put everything together on the 04R, electronics, motor, etc. I did notice that there's some slop in the drive train, is this normal? Will the Alum steering fix this?

the aluminum steering will not fix slop in your drivetrain, i'm assuming that you ment to type 'slop in your steering'... and yes, the aluminum steering bellcranks are definately more rigid and precise than the plastic units.
