the motor never gets hot. Granted is mainly 50 degree weather and i always froze my the motor with a can of Dust Off upside-down before my heat...it still never got hot. I started off at 20/81 (i have a b4). Then 18/81...then 16/84...the motor still didnt get hot. How low do i have to gear this thing? lol. I originally started at the recommended FDR of 10.00...im at 10.65 it looks like right now. Any tips? help? Im probably just gonna leave it as it is for now cuz it runs pretty good so no complaints, but if you guys have better tips or gearing tips with that motor lemme know. Thanks.
You are gearing the wrong direction. For the motor to get hotter, you will have to increase the size of the pinion gear. So you will want to dip into the 9s for FDR.

But the most important thing is the performance. If you are happy and it is running cool, that is great!

There are some that tha an undergeared motor can overheat. But I have never experienced this. Go bigger on the pinion and the motor should run even faster. A motor should run pretty hot when it produces maximum power.

Rick,

Do you have more info for us on the Lipo charger and balancer that you guys might be recommending for usage on your new Lipo packs.

I am hoping to get some new equipment soon for the summer.


Thanks,
Steve

It was my motor that delaminated.
i was running second in my heat and the motor was fast.
i hope reedy will replace it, the motor didn't even last 4 min.

Rick, do you have any pics or description of the LiPo/weight solution for the TC5?
I've been running the thick chassied XRay on carpet with foams successfully, but we've decided to swap to rubber tires in our region, so I need a thinner chassied car, like the TC5 or Cyclone, which I'd like to run with LiPos. I'm likely not going to the EU series of the XRay, because their chassis turn over is a little too high.

Thanks.

Any chance on some new Reedy mod motors based on the Stockstar/Challenger design? Maybe with aluminum endbells? A few of us still run brushed motors from time to time. Thanks, Billy

Reedy is sending you a new armature.

We don't have any pics as the design is continually changing. The basic idea is to use the existing battery strap holes and screws to mount nickel plated brass ballast pieces that key into the bulkheads so that they do not move. The battery is then secured with tape. With this set-up, the car is nearly perfectly balanced left to right.

No chance. Originally we had planned on it, but the demand for brushed modified is so low that it is not worthwhile to pay for any additional tooling just for modified motor sales.

Hay Rick, I had a question about the LRP Sphere TC ESC. I heard that there is timing built into it. What amount is buils in and what do you suggest for a 10.5 and a 13.5?

If you sent in a complete motor you will see a complete motor returned. I only saw the armature when it was removed.

Sean C is working on this right now. I hope by summer.

ROAR has already done the tests and received the paperwork with proof of availability. This means it will appear on the approved list within the next 7-10days.

I am not familiar enough with the ESC to comment. It does have adjustable throttle profiles that change the timing among other things. I use throttle profile 8 with a 10.5 and you would probably use that same profile with a 13.5 or 17.5.
