Plus, with the ThunderRC zapper, you can be sure that after a single 2 or so second zap, the magnets are as good as they are going to get. You don't have to zap-test-zap-test-etc.

How often would you use this?

Every rebuild, or less/more frequently?

In big events I use mind every heat. I run stock and the magnet strength does go down every run as I have found out during my initial testing.

Once the motor gets hot (~150F) the magnets start losing their strength.

Well, it looks like the ThunderRC one is the winner One last question, does it come with that compass?

How are you testing the magnet strength? Gauss meter? Anyone have an idea of the gauss meter reading for a saturated epic magnet?

Pretty hard to get the same reading as majority of the DIY/cheapo meters are not accurate. What I do is get a before and after reading. Pretty handy for racers paying to get there cans zap as it assures them that it does work, though time consuming on my part as I have never seen a used motor not increase on there magnet strength.

So the zapper bascailly give the magnet full power again thus making the motor faster and stronger, am I correct?

I was told that if you zap your magnet very frequently, the motor would be very fast but the armature would die very quickly as well. Is this true?

Do you think the zapper is very useful for stock and 19T racing? Would it damage the motor if I zap it between every run?

I am looking at the ThunderRC zapper.

You can't go wrong with the ThunderR/C zapper. I know Mike and he will do you right.

When you zapp the motor, you take the armature out. You zapp only the can. Yes it will be usefull in 19t and Stock. It will make the magnets like new. It won't make them better than they were new unless they really $ucked when they were new.
