I'm running a Reedy Quad and Chameleons at the moment. Right now I'm gearing them at 37/100 (reedy quad) and 39/100 (chameleon) in my BMI TC3 with 58mm tires. The drivetrain is reasonably free and spins for about 3-5 seconds, nothing impressive but not bad. I run 767 brushes and stock springs on all my motors right now and don't have access to a dyno. I'm racing on a 94'x50' carpet track with a reasonably flowing layout. I cranked the Reedy up to 36º but at 37/100 that burned up the brushes in one run... but it was FAST. I typically align bush hoods and try to shim the arm correctly on my motors but don't do much else other than trueing the motor every 3 runs or so.
Here are the questions:
Am I gearing to high or to low for either motor?
Am I using the correct brushes?
Is there another motor I should try?
Should I try Axiom or Putanm motors out (IE... will they likely perform much better than an off the shelf motor)?
I'm running Fukuyama 1.16 and above 3300 packs so I should have good voltage to work with.
Currently I'm running faster laps than all but one of the people at our club. Now if I could just run my fastest laps on every lap
I'd be set.
Anyways... any motor suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
