electric motors

hello, i was wondering if there is a practical wind limit for off-road electric racing? i have seen people use down to six turns but they dont seem to be able to control them very well.

I'm being very competitive with a 19spec motor. Other than that I have a 14x2 and a 13x5 and a couple of stocks.

With a 4WD vehicle you could probably get away with a faster motor. A friend of mine runs an 8x1 at our local track in his XXX4, most people who run mod truck or 2wd buggy run anywhere from 12x2 to 19 turn motors.

In my truck I run a 10x2 and in my buggy I run either a 10x2 or a 11x2.

I'd probably run a 12 in both my truck and buggy....but at the moment, I'm a die-hard stocker, so....

Here is what you will typically find under the hood of most of the pro's cars, depending on motor manufactuer, track size, track conditions, and of course personal preferance--


2WD Car- Turn range> 10-16 Strand range> x2-x4 Most often used- 12x2

2WD Truck- Turn range> 9-12 Strand range> x1-x2 Most often used- 10x2

4WD Car- Turn range> 8-11 Strand range> x1-x3 Most often used- 10x2


Remember, depending on your skill, you may want a lesser wind. 90% of the time when someone is having trouble staying clean, a slower motor will fix the problem.
