Smile motor questions

Is there much of a noticable difference between a 10x2 D5 and a 12x1 D5?

Which has more torque?

Which eats at my battery quicker?

thanks

There will be some difference, you'll probably be best going for the 12x1 if you've only got the choice of these two motors.

the 10x2 will have more revs, and therefore more top speed but it sacrifices torque to get this. It will also eat your batteries quicker.

The 12x1 is still a very fast motor, and both will require regular maintanence, including skimming the comm, which will mean either buying a lathe at over $100, not sure on US prices, or finding someone local to do it for you for a small fee eveery time. If you're just street bashing then you're better off with a slower motor, like a 17x2 or even a stock motor. They require less maintanence, although they still require some, and will run for longer on one set of cells.

the 10 will be faster like 10x2 or 10x1 are fine just pust some hard brushes on there and put the timing at like 15d. To keep up with a nitro I would go with a 6x1

Naaa, 8x2 D5 And Hard brushes wouldn't produce that great of performance anyway, but for a long lasting brush you could go with Axiom 6% silver mod brushes.

My brother runs his 04R against some of the local Nitro's and they just can't keep up with him. He runs an 8X2 D5 Flatliner and its just awesome. I run a 9X2 Flatliner in My Xray and in a straight line my brothers car and mine are pretty well matched with similar gearing. My Xray pulls ahead slightly by the end of the straight.
The D5 is the best motor I have used to date and I have just ordered another to back up the one I have now.

thanks for the responses yo. the reason i asked you guys is because i run a tb01 with stock everything against some of my friends' nitro cars and i just can't keep up. i ordered a 10x2 off tower but i wrote the number wrong. the number i wrote was for a 12x1. o well its all good, by the way you guys know if the magnets, motor can, etc. are the same for all d5 motors? if so i'll just get a new armature when this one dies.

thanks again.

I don't think you would have a problem putting in a lower wind armature into your 12X2 D5 Can.

Anywhere from 15 to 20 in a TC.

The D5 comes fully tuned and timed from the factory for optimum performance with the dyno Info printed on the side. (According to the pamphlet that comes with the motor)
