Thanks

That is how they will come initially but they meet all other specs etc.

This motor is the real deal. I was very impressed with it. Even the stock brushes are awesome.

This motor is just as fast as the komodo if not faster, tried it out this past weekend at the Canadian Challenge at Fastcats, but I saw a lot of them blowing up in smoke, including mine. First one I rolled it out around 28.5mm, burned up in the first run, 2nd one rolled it out around 30mm came off really hot, not sure if I should still gear up, was using F brushes and purple purple springs.

I ran this motor in 1/12 and I was very happy with the power from it... it pulled hard for the entire 8 minutes. I can't wait to try this in rubber TC.

What should the gearing be like for these motors? I ran one in practice, out of the box, at the weekend on the track seen here:

http://www.aldershotmodelcarclub.net...ile=track3.jpg

and it was slow. No bottom end guts and no top end.

I ran it with an FDR of 6.0. To give you an idea of the gearing that was quick, I also ran:

Atlas @ 4.85
C2 @ 5.2

It's a fast track with a 40mtr long straight so top end is a must. What sort of gearing would you have suggested for the track?

Ronnie Gardner was running the new Orion 19t last saturday and it was running as fast as the mods. Should be an interesting addition to the choices of 19 turns, right now the only one that I really like is the Komodo Dragon.

Rick - can you explain what the difference is to the "old" dynasty/element motors?? I've run the V2 19t for a long while.... is the V2 mentioned on your site now also an "updated" version?? If so, again, what are the differences??
(I'm talking differences in mechanical build etc rather than power band etc)

Cheers
Oli

The main difference is with the can. The cooling slots are resized and repositioned for better airflow. And armature material has been strategically removed. The endbell is the same as the original dynasty/element.

Our new brush compound is also very good and should be excellent in all 19-turn motors. They will not burn as easily as some of the favorite laydown brushes do.

The motor is also available with the V2 endbell for those that pefer less maintenance. But it comes with the smaller 3.8mm OJ brushes.

I also ran it at the Canadian Challenge this past weekend and I was very pleased with it. I geared it 29.5 roll out and it ran strong for 5 min. and I ran the stock brushes and it felt better than a f brushes in that motor. It never came off the track too hot and It ran great all week end long.

It seems like this PD2 is competing against two dominant motors: KD and $$. It seems like the KD is used by guys willing to cut their motor at least once a day, and $$ is used by guys willing to cut the motor every two months.

Is this another high-maintenance motor?
