Interesting.

What do you all think about the claims and science behind:

High rev and high torque version??

Mate... copy and paste the link manually. Otherwise, the address is not correct.


I assume it's just a size thing? "Torque" tuned would be analogous to having a larger capcitor. Takes longer to charge, but more capacity?

Apply the same principle to the diode? - Someone correct me if I'm wrong. I'm no electrical engineer..!!

I've noticed that many top drivers attach their diodes directly to the tabs of their motor, while I solder mine to the wires inline to the mother, does this have any lesser effect?

The closer the Schottky is mounted to the motor the better, I couldn't say how much better because I'm no EE.

The idea is that the Schottky offers a much easier path for the back emf than the brake fets in the speedo, so closer means lower resistance and better at attracting those little electrons away from the brake fet...


(If you mean you mount the Schottky inline as in in the positive or negative wire to the motor only then you have it wrong and the Schottky is doing nothing useful. I assume you mean you still have it across the positive and negative wires just a bit further from the motor.)

That is why you will not see diodes included in reversable ESC's.
All the foward only ESC include diodes now. KO having the easiest to install...
Although I see alot of peeps using the Much More ones now.
Hope you can sleep well again..LOL
