Default D3 vs ReVtech

Which is a better motor for Touring Car 17.5 blinky? D3 or ReVtech

I was reading the AD in Xtreme RC for ReVtech and it states "The ReVtech line features a wider power band for running 1-cell oval, 2wd short course, and off-road trucks and buggies."

I've had mine just prior to public release and have had no issues with them what so ever. If anything they feel better as they get used. I use the 6000/60C packs.

Ive been running them since March and have zero issues out of my stuff. The only ones I have had that slightly have been noticeable is when I heat them. Then they will feel "fat" but not swollen of puffed. Heating is a no no anyway but I do it in testing sometimes to do durability testing and such.

Love the ReVtech packs! I cannot say enough about them. They just get better and better. I have learned to leave them charged at 50%.

Default ReVtech Packs are the money

I have had mine also since public release and they are amazing still. I have pounded them in 1/8 buggy, Mod 2WD as well as 4WD SCT. They have no puff and still perform as good or better then when new. They are the real deal! I run the 6000 60C as well.

No puffing on any of my packs. The one cell seem to be good. I have not cycled the 5600 yet to see how it compares to the 6000. The 6000 is the same as a 5600 CRC pack I had laying around from the birds. They are the same as far as holding volts and IR.

thanx for all those that posted their feed back on the revtech lipo.....just deciding on which packs to upgrade as there seems too many good packs to go for as I use corrally plugs so trying to decide on which packs are good out in the market as to compare with the new orion 6500 90c or lrp 6200 65c.....

If your choices are between Revtech, Orion and LRP I would stay away from the Orion packs for sure. They are no where near a 90C rating according to the factory that has tested a bunch of them for true C rating. LRP packs are usually good I hear.

Of course my opinion is ReVtech

Thanks
EA

probably more track size related then car type. the revtech has some good power #'s making it suitable for anything (when geared appropriately), but the peak power is up some in the rev range, making it even more suitable for larger tracks where you spend a greater percentage of the lap in that range.

honestly, though, for a tc on most mid-size tracks, you're probably splitting hairs here. the d3 runs cooler, just like most torque based motors tend to do.

(i'm in the middle of a posting binge!)

i'm trying to figure out what's the difference between the revtech motor and the D3 Duo? They both cost the same and I can't make heads or tails of which one to get. I'm looking to run 17.5 12th scale.

The RT has more ventilation and is capable of carrying more current for a longer time before temps rise. The motor is more of a torque and rpm based deal, so If I where running in 1/12th I think I'd be more inclined to run the D3 with the 1S rotor. I'm basing this on the pure torque factor and running 1S I think you'll just be putting to much energy into a RT to get the same performance that you could get out of the D3.
The RT is better suited towards off road, short course and touring car. JMO

Perhaps EA can chime in on what he has found out so far.

As far as the RT motor goes, I have found for TC this motor is a little different to tune for. My best results have been (blinky) to gear the motor for around 140* at the 4 minute mark, when I do this I hardly ever see the motor go over 160* by the end of the 6 minute run. It just seems to stabilize at the 4 minute mark and doesn't go into a thermal runaway like some other motors do. Over gearing it really hasn't brought any on track advantage so probably isn't worth it.

Just watch out for those can screws and if it feels really "coggy" when you turn it over by hand, save yourself a headache and put it on a motor checker and see what the current draw is. If its over 3.5 amps (at full timing) back the motor can screws out a little or it will cause other failure problems.
