Turtlemaster.. There really isn't a website for Fremont HT. The best place to go is rcracing.com That's pretty much the bay area hangout. Racenut is the guy you want to talk to plus there is also a thread. --AL

Hey Guys! Just wondering what would a good rpm for a stock silver can motor using a Yokomo Motor Master or the Much More version measuring at 7.2 volts? What is the minimum target rpm and what would be the best you have ever had with the newer 3 hole motors as well as the older 4 hole motors? Do you usually measure at 7.2 volts or another voltage? Thanks a lot.

XTM have a silver can they run in the exellorater truck thats as quick as a 19turn if you really want a fast motor. Not sure how to get hold of them or who makes them but they out perform any other ive seen in stk.

A Good RPM for silver can when using the Much More Motor Master is around 25000 to about 30000 RPM at 7.2 volts when fully run in. This is what i have measure when using the Motor Master.

I run in the motor at 2 volts for the first 2 hours and at 3.6 volts for the next 8 hours while using the Much More Motor Cooler to cool down the Motor.

Will post a video when my motor master is back from repair. Sorry for the slow reply

I have been Zapping the 540's for about two years now for drivers, and they have liked the result.

Its a little tricky cause you cant really zapp cause you have use a slug for a real zap. But the motors seem the torq up.

Now hebki has done this too, but i think he did it wrong. lol

Hi Silver can experts...

I am trying to run in a siver can using some of the methods described so far in this thread and I'm not sure if I have done something wrong , or is the motor a dud or is it a champ in the making.

I ran it in one race straight from the box, and it wasnt as good as the motor it was supposed to be replacing, so it went back in the box, and now i'm just trying to get it to run in...

problem is that it is drawing so many amps (over 10) that it shuts down my charger (Supernova Competition on the motor run in facility), when I set it to 3v or more.

The silver can I was replacing only draws about 1.3 amps on 3v.

So I have been running it on 1v for about 3 hours dry, and 3 hours in a glass of water.

At the moment it draws about 3amps on 1v, dry. Unfortuantly I dont have any way of measuring torque or RPMs.

I am nervous about just trying it in my car, because I dont want to blow up the ESC if the motor is going to draw too much current.

thoughts and suggestions please...

Thanks

PeteB

Hmm that is wierd, not sure why it would be drawing so much. But running it in your car will be fine. The esc can handle plenty more than 10A

Gently but firmly advance the motor stack independently of the shaft moving = more timing
I would only recommend about 2 degs of 'twist' to be applied, if you over twist the arm you will notice all of the wire on the stack will be loose and the motor will be even slower.
I would always recommend doing this on an old motor first, then a new one once you are comfortable.

You gotta think outside of the box on this one fellas!
pay pal payments accepted for the next 'tuning session' LOL
What exactly is the stack

This might help, but make sure you dont twist it the wrong way otherwise you will retard the timing, instead of advancing it. Also be aware that there is a HIGH chance of killing the motor, and it will make the motor "illegal" for racing and if your car gets scruitneered you will probably get disqualified...

let us know how you go...

To finish up on the motor that I was running in...
I water dipped etc for about 20 hours on 1v, and the amps it was drawing didnt drop. bolted it into my car and gently applied a small amount of power (just enough to turn the wheels) and it immediately started to smoke. Took it back and exchanged it for a new one.
