Might sound strange but check the shimming of the rotor and the soldering of the stator.

New GM engine from box, or Graupner (silver can with black label).
Used old GM engine.

Engines works with HW and LRP.

For new motors out of the packet, shimming definitely is needed, new graupner.. check the soldering of the stator !

you want the rotor closer to the sensor board (I normally make it about 0.5mm to 1mm using the shims that come in the motor)
9 times out of ten, it means taking one shim off the sensor board side and putting at the front of the motor

First of sorry as this has probably all been covered before...

I have a GM90 that I would like to test against my Hobbywing 120 - I have always been afraid of the seeming complexity of the GM and so have never run it.

I have read the article here (http://www.racing-cars.com/pp/Manufa...g/GM97164.html) which I think is from an article by Martin Hofer on this thread. My understanding of these instructions is;

1. ensure that you speedo has v13 software on it
2. load up the V13_1_basic.gd2
3. set you mode (also sets transmitter settings)
4. adjust the 4 values for your motor type

My questions are;

I plan to run 10.5 on a track about the size of Ardent in the UK for those that race there. Should I be picking mode 8 or 9 instead of mode 3 as recommended by Martin?

For anyone running 10.5 (using a speed passion motor if possible) what settings should I look at for the additional 4 settings - with my Hobbywing I run pretty mush everything maxxed - DRRS mode 9, timing and turbo to the max 64 degrees timing and an FDR of 9.2

Thanks,
Stephen

Hi Stephen,

If you use Martins settings file the mode number doesn't matter, as the settings overwrite all the defaults for the mode. Just make sure you select the mode that you loaded the settings file into.

I've run an SP v3 10.5 so this should be a decent starting point...

FDR 6.5
Motor timing max (10deg)
Switchpoint 15000RPM
Fixed Timing 21deg
Current Limit 80A

Thats for an outdoor track with a 35m straight. For a smaller track maybe change the FDR to about 7.0 but the rest should stay about the same.

If the temperature is okay (I try to stay below 70deg with the SP v3) you may be able to add more Fixed Timing for more top speed, but always best to start on the safe side.

Hello everyone.

I have updated my blog once again.
This time with a story how beeing late can make racing a lot more challenging.

Setup from the event should be up on the Schumacher homepage soon.

Default GM 75

just wanted to drop a quick question...

is a GM 75 a good option for Stock 17.5 Noboost or is intended more for Mod Racing?
just wanted to try something different from the norm in the US.

current motor choice is LRP X12 17.5

I wouldn't recommend the GM for blinky (no boost) racing; if you read the past couple of pages of this thread you'll see there are lots of people (including myself) having issues. It seems that the GM doesn't like lots of motor timing, and in blinky you run more motor timing.

In boosted though it's #1
