Thanks again
Not speaking for Eric, but I think he may have left for IIC today or be getting ready to leave tomorrow so it may take him a bit to get back on here.

Great! Glad they arrived safely!


The dyno numbers really wont mean a whole lot to you unless you have a dyno to compare the numbers with on your motors to the new one. Its a QC check more than anything and a way to make sure the motor is functioning properly and that its putting out all that it can.

The top row of numbers would be the RPM and load your car sees on a straight. The very bottom would be what the car sees out of the corner. When comparing motors you look for the one that has the highest wattage and RPM while still being effecient. You also look for one that has a smaller drop off of RPM from top to bottom if you are looking at two motors with the same or similar other numbers. The one with the tighter spread generally will have more torque...hence the rpm did not fall off as much under a load.

The Rotor numbers are how strong it is on the negative and positive. Usually the closer the better but its not a huge deal in On road. Oval its more important or so the oval guys think. Keep the same shimming with the High torque rotor. What I usually do is hold the sensor board endbell in one had and put 2 .020 shims on the rotor and slid it into the sensor endbell. Make sure it doesnt rub. The key is getting it as close to the sensors without touching. THen on the other end just use the big spacer that comes with it.

Hope this helps.

I did have about a dozen left. I shipped them all to IIC today so there is nothing left at home. I am getting in a few more 13.5's tomorrow to take to IIC with me along with batteries and ORCA speedo's.

The north american importer only got 10 in on this batch. One of those is already on its way to ROAR. So from there its just a matter of how long they take to approve it this time.

Hopefully within the next few weeks though.

Team EAM had a great weekend at IIC. Motors and batteries were a hit for sure! Also the ORCA speedos were flying off the shelves and on the track!

I'll post a full rundown of results of the Team Guys and customers when I get caught up here at home.

Thanks
EA
