Default Fastest electric - MPH - Modified Motor

What is the fastest electric mod. motor? How many MPH can it reach?

A friend of mines has a Trinity D5 8 turn double - it can reach speeds around 40ish MPH.

That depends on a lot of things, winds, gearing, free drivetrain..possibly body if you're going really fast.

I think the fastest with a normal mod was 96mph in a TC3 with many a cell (24 i think) they destroyed lots of motors in the process but had mike reedy on hand to wind some more.

I wonder, could you use some sort of capacitor to boost voltage, to make a speed run car?

you could use a cap, but two problems arise, you'd need some way of switching it on probably a relay if you want to do it near terminal velocity

and also the size and length of time you get the power for is fairly short.

Ya cuz at TCHR i heard they were getting their cars up to around 45 mph down the straight (8 turns), and that's a 115 ft straight. Gear it taller and i bet you could get 50.

Trinity used to make cobalt motors, dont think they still do, but it would be worth a shot. I think that was back in 95 that I saw those though...

Do a search on Ebay for "D5" under electric remote control cars. You'll get auctions from a guy that winds custom drag motors with Neo magnets. Be prepared to pay for them.
