Default Tuning mod motors for Ib's

Here in France IB's has been allowed since the beginning of the year and in each race we can see many motors problems. The problem is that a solder break on one of the pole. We don't see that as often with GP cells so I'd like to know what to do with IB cells. Should I reduce the timing of my motors with the increase of voltage. Should I gear my motors differently?
I'm running 12*1 with CS silver brushes or with checkpoint infinity brushes.
Thanks by advance!

Set a current limiter on your ESC.

That's some high heat if you are melting the solder off. I'd definitely try backing off some timing or maybe even dropping a tooth or too from the pinion.

There really isn't anything to explain - they tune like any other motor. The difference is that you don't have to screw with the brush hoods to get them right, and you are limited to using their brushes. What motor do you have any what are you doing with it?

Sounds like a cold solder joint.

Was the battery properly assembled??

The battery poles ruffed-up and cleaned, same with the battery bars.
Soldered with quality solder with a Hot iron?? a little flux will help also.

Exclamation Solder meltdown!!!

The pro drivers running V2's i.e. Rhienhard is using the new endbell config. I believe this was done just for that reason. He is also using two fans one on the endbell and one on the esc. Many of the pro drivers were having the solder melt because they push the motors to the extreme. This is the first I heard of that it is only happening with the IB's and not the GP's. There might be some truth to this only because more amps create more heat, so these high output batteries could be one of the factors in this occurance.!!! I don't think it's poor soldering or over timed motors. Just the nature of the beast!

Just my 2$
