Skid -- Thanks. Not sure I can make it up there tonight but will try. Gearing sounds like close to what we have. Sam bought a pair of IRS lowered pods so we can use small diameter tires. We were given a bunch of used ones and bought more cheap from a seller on rctech. I'll check the size.

We put Fantom 315s on our Trinity Monster, using same springs (red/green) and got a significant rpm increase. Also have a Putnam Monster that we haven't tried yet.

For gearing on the XXXT, I would go between 16-18 depending on track size and specific motor. All motors are a little different, and if you tune one up or buy a tuned motor, that can have a big effect.

ifind that the monster has the best power at a com size of .275-.272, but that leaves very little com left to cut , and its a shame to loose all those runs of your arm just to cut it down to that size from brand new of .292-.290 .
the monster still has good power at that size

I shaved off a little on each side of the brush and used the purple springs. It gave the motor real good power in onroad carpet. I'm gonna try the same thing with the slant cut brushes next weekend...

christopher- i have tryed the same thing with my monster only with 767s and red springs, this gave alot more midrange power. i am going to try purple springs and also some 4499s with the same .010" cut on the sides. i also run carpet, foams.

Default What's the Discharge Rate on Monster

I'm running a TC3, with the Monster Stock Pro, and GP 3300s that have 30V discharge on the labels. Does anyone know based on your testing either through a dyno or other testing methods what the average discharge rate would be with this motor.

I'm trying to decide which discharge amperage to buy, either 20 or 30 amp.

Thanks.

The Monster Horsepower has a lot of RPM, very similar to a mod motor. Do you guys think it still only draws 20 amp because it is classifed as a stock motor?

the stock motors are generally rated at 20amps. If you have no intention of running mod anytime soon go with the 20 amp discharge device.

I'm very mixed on how I feel about the Monster. It does seem to have the top end of GM3 and more torque, but it just dosent feel as smooth as the Orion Cores that i've been running for awhile. Some layouts it's nice others it's not. I usually will run the first practice run with one motor and the second run with the other and make a decision from there.
