Now I'm confused. I have been running Neu motors for a long time and I am very familiar with how they name their motors. I just checked castles site and it says that the 1410 and 1415 are two different diameters. Is that correct? It says the 1410 is 25mm and the 1415 is 36mm. That has to be incorrect for the 1410? Right?
According to the numbers they should both be the same dia. and the second two numbers are definately the length.

It is still a really good motor even on 2s geared right of course.
agreed, castle makes very strong motors, just like the 1410 the 1415 is a 4 pole beast.... the 1415 can handle the scte and them some even on 2s geared up and work within temp range. It's just a better choice for those running a 3s setups. I was just pointing out it's not necessarily the best choice for all.. just have to consider if you are locked to 2s if you want the extra inefficiencies.. added heat loss in the coils, and keep in mind the added weight for not only the motor but the extra large pinions.. if you are watching your weight it is something to consider.

Look careful the 1410 isn't shown with a full diameter.. the 1410 is just under 36mm actual diameter.. same as the 1415

No, your right. I was just trying to point out that folks considering this motor should rest assured that it performs quite well, and can out pace many other combo's even on 2s.

I do agree however that on 3s the 1415 is hard to beat...really goes good.

I use the Ryobi 4v, $30 bux at Home Depot and it has an adjustable clutch so you dont over tighten stuff. This thing has made my RC life significantly better! Then I used the Losi 8-1 tool for the tips, they fit the driver perfectly

Looks good to me, need two pair of the axles and dont forget wheel nuts. Ours just came out, I would get the serrated nuts.

Awesome. Thanks! Do you have a part number for the nuts?

I don't know if Losi came out with some serrated wheel nuts, but most people use the Traxxas blue Slash 4x4 wheel nuts because they're serrated, cheap and look good. I think Pep Boys even carries them since they carry Traxxas stuff, or at least they used to.

I know you guys have said "move freely"..just want to clarify.

To me it can't work if side to side play is there. Am I wrong?
You can't have too much play really. As long as the bar is in the retainers, you can take the little set screws out and it won't make any difference. If they are too tight, you will feel a difference, so erring on the side of sloppy is good.

I use the same little drill works great but you don't have a chuck which is fine I made up a adapter to put a old small drill chuck on so I could drill holes with it at the track without buying the drill with the hex end.

Soaking them obviously makes them a little softer and less prone to tearing ill assume ?

Hitachi All the way, The Makita is imo a little larger then I would personally prefer. A Clutch is Very Important at first to learn the gun and how powerful it is. If your on a serious budget the cheaper units from Home depot or your cheap tool center's will work, But the hitachi is Imo the best of the best. Light weight, powerful, 2 batteries, And A LOT of people use them at the track so If you forget to charge a pack or something more then likely you'll have a spare on the next table.

Hitachi is under 100$ and the best of the best.

You can get both from Steve at SNR http://www.snrgraphite.com/index.php...index&cPath=13




He doesn't have his carbon hinge pin retainers on his site, but email him at [email protected] and he will get them to you.






the weight difference is more drastic then normal as the stock plates are steel not alum like on 95% of other kits. While the SNR plates are a Big weight saving's I feel for most of the SC racing population the Steel was a Very Smart idea on Losi's part to keep those arms/toe plates in check.

The 1410 on 2s will have as much or more torque as the 1415 on a 2s setup due to the low RPM's on the 1415. You can gear up the 1415 to get similar maybe even more effective torque but at a huge cost of efficiency.. both in heat and how much mAH you burn off your batteries.. it is very inefficient running at that low of a RPM. The 3800 is just under 30k which is the "magic" number, the 1415 is only at like 18k rpm which is pretty bad. On 3s lipo it's another story altogether.. the 1415 is pretty sweet.
thanks Eight! I don't know all the technicalities but you said what I wanted to say. Thanks
