You know this because you have already tested the "special and illegal" magnets and found no advantage? I am sure you will still have something on hand just in case. Kinda like the last on road worlds in Florida when we had 3700 mah cells with 3300 mah shrink wrap. I do miss the little performance perks of running your stuff.............

The "illegal magnets" are legal in Germany as far as I know, and for that reason, some drivers test it at the Euro warm-up.

Yes, these "illegal" magnets are legal in germany...but nearly all drivers are using bonded magnets with sensored systems...

Can someone explain the difference between "Bonded" and "Sintered" magnets ...

Thanks...

All the brushless manufacturers are unanimous in wanting to fix this error in the rules and have all submitted this request to all santioning bodies.

From the website below:

"Rare earth magnets are available in sintered and bonded forms. Sintered magnets are a type of ceramic composed of the compressed powder of the alloy material being used. Sintering involves the compaction of fine alloy powder in a die and then fusing the powder into a solid material with heat. While the sintered magnets are solid, their physical properties are more similar to a ceramic and are easily broken and chipped. Bonded magnets use a polymer base to hold the alloy powder together. The energy product of bonded magnets is much lower than that of the sintered magnets. Sintered NdFeB magnets are generally plated or coated with a material to prevent corrosion. There are various coatings available. Nickel-Copper-Nickel plating has excellent corrosion resistance and durability as well as providing an clean and shiny appearance."

Greg - I was in charge of tech at the 2004 IFMAR Worlds in Florida. I personally measured and weighed almost every battery that was run there. I can assure you that Orion did not run Super GP3300's, Reshrunk 3700's or anything like that. Only one company (not a major manufacturer) submitted illegal cells (too heavy and over the limit in diameter). They were spotted immediately and confiscated for the duration of the event.

We also randomly measured cells and checked pack weights during qualifying and the A-mains.

Were there illegal cells at the Worlds...yup...did anyone run them...not during qualifying or any A-main.

The mere fact that there were cells that were not legal at the event is a shame. Makes average joe racer wonder what else is going on in the team pits....lol
