scottw, which Integy motors, V12-2484 or V12-2485, did you run on Sunday? Your comments on spring combos will be appreciated. Should I go for the 2484 or 2485? thanks. joseph

Hey Joseph.. I ran Sunday and did poo with the combo I tried. I switched to an Epic and got second in A main, but got lucky to be in the A main in the first place.

I have tried everything now from...

Purple,
Green (negative side)
Red/maroon (positive)

I just cant get the thing to run in the straights for crap!

I ran the NTV12-2484

to be honest, until the market can provide the brushes for the 30 they are worthless if you break or just run it down. Integy doesn't even have them in stock, nor does anyone else that I go through.. Now if you can go locally and they have the brushes, buy as many as they have (ill buy some from you ).

I have 10 of them, and have ran all of them more then 4 packs each, they are the best running motor in turns out there, but when you get to full speed, the springs just can't handle it. I am going to work with Issac at axxis-racing to see if we can find a solution for this. Until then I am going to stick to the Epic, I am sad b/c that is $300 worth of motors .

I have not had the chance to run the laydown brush version, they don't have it in stock here.

Let me know what one you get, and let me know how the power is on it.

Hey guys. Time to let you guys know what happened in my off-road race last Sunday.

1st heat:
Ran my T4 with purple/red spring combo (by the way, I'm using laydown version *2485*) with 16/87 pinion/spur and Brahma's B-brushes on both sides. ended up 5th out of 9 racers.

2nd heat:
Ran again and used one tooth higher pinion with the same spring combo ended 4th.

Main:
Started in 5th using the pinion from the 2nd heatand ended up 3rd place. I would have finished 2nd if only I didn't crash on corners couple of times and I was catching up to who's ahead of me.


scottw:
Sorry that I forgot to tell you what version I used from my last post. I guess my spring combo didn't help. From what I read from other threads and the result from my race, the laydown version is the better choice.

Default Try this with the laydown hoods!

With the laydown hoods, I have ran 767's trimmed on the leading and trailing edges, with the stock springs, and have had great results. But the purple/ purple and purple/ red combo work well too.

The other brush that I have had good results with is a full faced 766, again with purple/ purple, or purple/ red.

Hope this helps

Simple Explaination::



Laydown Version - run on tight tracks where you need the most rip - Has more Torque

Angled Version - for more high speed flowing tracks - higher RPM

Red - Purple + to get the most Torque

How much trimming did you do on your 767 brushes? Did you run on road or off-road?

This is running offroad. I am trimming approximately .001 off of each side.
I am still trying different widths, but this is what I like right now. Give it a try, you will like it. If I come up with something different, I will post the info.

Got mine...from reasonably well known motor builder and...

I'm not sure I care too much for the quality. I have NOT ran the motor, but just opened the package for inspection. If any of you motor builders got a second to make some comments, I'd appreciate it. I'm thinking about writing the original builder and either asking for another one, or my $$ back. But b4 I do that, I'd like to see what other people think.

Attached are the pics...

Brushes:
The pics of the brushes didn't come out as clear as I would have liked...what I was trying to show is that they are only warn/burnt on the one side.. as if they were not hitting the com square.

Com/Armiture:
I noticed on the com...all 3 secments..there are hard brush serration markes. This even more so makes me believe that the hoods are not alligned properly.

Default KOS stock... CO2 roar legal?

Here is the roar approved motor list.

http://www.roarracing.org/approvals/smotor.php

A guy at our track called trinity about the CO2, and they "said" that it (the co2) would be legal in a couple weeks.

Anybody know how often Roar meets to approve new motors and batteries?

The link doesn't look like it's updated, but thanks for the info.

Now for a new question:

I've been checkin numerous brush faces:
Full face
Timed (trimmed at the leading edge
Shaved (both edges trimmed)
Slot (vertically cut in the middle)
Half-Cut (top half being cut)
D-Deck (horizontally cut in the middle)
X-Cut
V-Cut
Drilled

In case didn't have an idea of what some of the face look like, Integy and Team Paradigm sites povide the visual samples.

I know that only few faces on the list can provide more torque but I have no idea what faces are more suited for off-road for the KOS motor or any motor. Can you guys give your two cents on this?
