Another factor to take into consideration is how much timing do you have set on your motor, some motors perform better with a higher timing stetting, and others perform better with a lower timing setting.

In short, without knowing the brand, model, and how much timing is on any given motor, a very rough gearing estimate can only be given here.
To find the "butter zone" takes experimentation, and noting of what settings work best at any given track.

If you list what motors you have, the guys here can help you narrow down a more ideal setting to start with.

Cheers
Rob.

Hi Guys,

It's been bought to our attention that there have been some discrepancies in the manufacturing process for a number of motors on the approved lists for the 21.5 and 13.5 classes.

To be legal, a motor must be approved by and appear on the ROAR motor lists AND conform to the physical specifications as described in the AARCMCC rules.

The AARCMCC specifications can be located at section 10, page 40 of the AARCMCC rules, located here.

It is the competitors responsibility to ensure that their motors confirm to the above rules.

To assist competitors we will be checking motors before the ACT Titles to ensure that they confirm to the above rules. I'm working on having the facility available Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.

During the meeting, motors will be spot checked along with the TQ and podium results as they are provisionally confirmed.

If you have any questions please ask.

thanks

Mark

Hi Mark,

You may wish to add that the motors can appear on the BRCA approved list as well, not just ROAR.

Cheers

To save the hassle of getting there and changing motors. Is there any known motors that ARE roar approved that DO NOT meet AARCMCC specs?

Short answer - no.

Longer answer - there's a view that manufacturing tolerances or production issues can result in a motor that no longer meets the required specifications. For example, a manufacturer can build a motor, submit it to ROAR for approval and get the green light, but inadvertently, a motor off the production line could be slightly different and fall outside of spec. Here you have two motors, same labels, supposedly the same, but are materially different. In a more sinister scenario, a motor has been modified, in which case a second-hand owner could be unaware of the change.

AARCMCC's view is that it is the responsibility of the driver to do some basic checks to make sure that the motor still meets the regulations. The tools required aren't exotic and should be readily available at a pit table nearby if you don't own them.

It's not a fab situation, but I think it's a reasonable position to take.

Phil.

there is a good guide here on how to check your motors

http://www.teamtekin.com/news/tekin-...spect-a-motor/

from what I have heard the issue is more to do with minimum stator length, but all dimensions should be checked.
