The motors ran strong all weekend. A lot of punch out of rurns and plenty of pull down the long straightaway. Personally I ran the torque version with a 3.33 fdr with 50 degrees of timing and it was great.

How does it compare to the d3.5 with the 12.5 high torque? Did anyone try the high torque or other rotors in their kill shots?

Hi guys,

A Main Hobbies is selling 'Bulls Eye' motor by Express Motorsports. Is this another version of Kill Shot? Any review of this motor? Any info on this company?

I'll be doing some testing tomorrow with a RPM stator and HT rotor. Already have a good baseline with my sedan with a D3.5 & HT rotor.

I watched 3 brand new motors blow up last Saturday. It happened so fast, no matter what FDR they were running, it didn't even have time to get hot enough to blow up any other motor.
Hope they did something wrong, I wanted to run it but didn't neither did 2 other guys after that. Could it be they got a defected one? One was from team EAM and the others just killshots

What actually "blew up"? Rotors come apart? Bearings? Stator shorted?

I would say they more than likely did something wrong. I ran 2 different motors at the nats and got both over 210 degrees testing gearing and both still run fine.

A little more info might help shed some light on things...

What class/type of car were they being run in? FDR/timing? Temp? Etc?

I know you said it didn't matter "what FDR they were running" and "it didn't even have time to get hot"... but a lot of people will take what they see online(such as an individual having success running a Killshot @ 3.2FDR @ Nats) and then try to duplicate the settings on a much tighter track, only to start popping motors.

Not sure exactly what happened but they let out the magic smoke. Pretty sure they were overheated, since these guys are always looking to have the fastest car. On this specific track I've never had a motor above 120F, it's just too small to have a ballistic car

I'm sure they do run fine. One of the guys told me that there was no way my car was fast with the timing in the middle and running a FDR of 4.0 with my revtech 17.5. My fastest lap was .5sec off the fastest lap that day (fastest was 9.7 if I remember correctly, by Mike Haynes)
