Default Neo Brushless questions

Hi,

I'm getting back in the hobby after a 10 year break to finish college, get married, and all that other important stuff.

I'm running a Neo 1 star in a T4 (with a Sphere speed control). Small tight indoor track, high traction clay.

The 1 star seems a little doggy coming out of corners. It doesn't snap like a brushed 13T mod motor. I played with the gearing, dropped the pinion down to 16/87, ran some great batteries with high voltage, ect... and didn't feel the torque.

Has anyone adjusted the timing on a brushless to remedy this? Or any other suggestions? I like the idea of low maintenance but don't want to sacrafice the performance.

Thanks,
Dustin

don't exactly know what you say doggy out of the corners. I understand the term, but for a brushless one start this is confusing. I can't directly relate you could say, I have a 9 turn neo one, the original reedy brushless which snaps on the dot. The one star being an 8.5T, seems like it should have enough juice in it to satisfy any 1/10 owner...? Now I've used a trinity 13T and a reedy 12T brushed and have to say mine pulls better than both by a long shot anywhere on the track.

I question the track, your tires and your gearing. Now if you tightened the slipper, it seems like that would make it impossible to be "doggy" in the corners because you would literally be wheelying out of the corner. Are you the proper tires I wonder? Could you possibly have a weak connection somewhere? This seems to be a bizarre case of an "inferior" brushless motor to brushes, so I question things like water damage, connections, tire, tranny, set up, track, controls, and experience to you. Have you ever used anyone elses brushless reedy? I think you should maybe make a first hand comparison if possible that is.

True story of mine is that I had some proline dirt hawgs that I recieved used, and they were supposably good....but turns out the glue job wasn't. My Neo One ripped the tire from glue from use, and they started spinning, and I noticed that my stock holeshots on my t4 that were bald(also the neo to blame )out performed my dirt hawg prolines. So I held the back of the car in the air and saw foam, all this from about a few weeks use. This is why the little things count that you don't expect.

I been running the 1 Star for few months already ...

Think your using too small of a pinion....
Try 21/87 or 20/87.... for T-4

I use 23/81 on my B-4 ....

Thanks for the info. I'll play around with the gearing some more. That would be the best place to start.

Have you adjusted your timing? If so, does it give similar results to timing adjustments on a brushed motor?

do what Wild Cherry said. BL motors like to be geared UP...

Go as high as you can on the gearing without it thermalling during the race...

Dustin , advise to never mess with the timing ...

Run a 20P or 21P , don`t go bigger....

Your thottle will feel way more betta with the larger pinion...
