Default (need info) Drag racing motor

Anyone have any experience with drag racing electric motors ?

Thinking on running a motor with around 10 cells but need to know what type of motor will handle it !

1) drag racing motors aren't cheap $200-300 a piece.
2) They are often custom built for your application email or call them to discuss specific needs.

Holly snappin pine cones ! That is $$$ expensive.

I think I will tinker with some old mod motors and just increase the number of cells on them.

Thank's

It may be fast for a bit, but if you run high voltage on nomal motors, the magnets will get progressively weaker, and consequently the motor progressively slower.

How fast do those motors go in a drag car?

You can always play around with an old motor you don't care about, or just try it out with a $20 machine wound mod or something you don't care about killing the magnets on.

Obviously higher voltage motors exist, I just don't know how many in a form factor common to most cars. That place does SERIOUS drag motors. Maybe you can find someplace that does less insane higher voltage motors if you're just messing around ?

Criminal, it says on thier site figures like 90MPH TC3 (145 km/h) and 112 MPH (180km/h) in a quarter mile run and such. Those things can apparently move a car quite rapidly.
