speedxl, please tell what the color of the comm indicates. I've noticed that sometimes the comm turns an orange color and sometimes it stays shiny copper color. Does the color indicate heat due to under-gearing or something else? Thanks in advance.
here's my color scheme.
BLACK: buy a new motor.
DARK BROWN: toasted (same with the wires) beyond way over geared. smoking! there goes that motor.
Brown: getting to "toasted" WAY over geared.
Orange: over geared a tad.. better gear down.
Copper: gearing is just right.
oh ya..EA..toasted a C19 last saturday. car was fast. after my run.... smelled like i was BBQing some ribs or something.
