Don't know if it applies to all the Regionals, but as of now it seems that's what will apply at Aliso Viejo. Of course, this could all change tomorrow.

Sid, look in the Racing Forum in the Tamiya Championship thread

That would make sense, because this rule does not.

Just a note that I will have a limited number of Aliso-legal TCS silver cans available for sale on Saturday morning when I arrive. Some for GT3, others for Mini, one for F103GT.

Reserve in advance through e-mail at [email protected]

Red Dot Power Rocks!

looks like if you've got a rule limiting RPM's you'll have to find some ways to increase torque

Yep, or at least retain as much of the torque as possible. Properly massaged, these motors shouldn't lose any more than 5% efficiency at the 5 volt/15K rpm level. Problem is, a lot of 14.5-15K motors are just tired old worn out units with cooked, weak magnets and poor torque.

Keeping the yank isn't easy, but can be done if you know what you're doing. So what you don't get at the end of the straight, you get back in the infield.

Of course, that requires the ability to drive, which is a whole 'nother thread...

In case anyone is interested, I have a limited number of very fast silver can motors for sale. The Mini ones are all 15.5-16K RPM at 5 volts with very good torque- would be great for the upcoming SIR event at the endof the month (I will not be attending ). GT3 ones have lower RPM but incredible yank- excellent for sedans. Also have several with great RPM but a soft bottom end for F103GT.

Interested racers should shoot me an e-mail at [email protected].

Red Dot Motors Rock!!!

Sid, finally got some time to test some motors on my Fantom dyno. Never did test my motors as Doc sold me one of his before the Aliso regionals. Brandon K. borrowed it and won Mini with it. Lee Caldwell borrowed my best 4 slot and finished third. I set a new record for traction rolls so you know I wasn't in the hunt. Sending you a PM.

I dont know why people want to get more power or speed out of a silver can motor they are all made the same. Silver can class or 540 as it is known in some places. Have you people ever tried thinking about how you drive the car. Ive seen a guy race a TC3 with a black 540 motor and still beat a feild of stock class drivers by 3 laps its not how quick your car is its how you drive and gear your car. There is no way possible to tune your silver can motor all you can do is clean it after every run and look after it
