Default Brushed Motors

How many guys overseas are still running brushed motors I am the owner of Full Throttle and we still have a some older mod motors in our inventory that we would be willing to sell for a great price.

All our racing has gone brushless.

Did your kit come black anodized or did you have that done yourself?

Hi!

I did it by myself. I really like black anodized parts. Looks more technical for me.

I only have a brushed set inside, because I am waiting for my BL-Set. Haha!

For my opinion itīs better to install the slider rearward. Works much better, than stock-installation!

I also put some white plastic-washers under the screw, who hold the sideshock-shaft to save the shaft.

And I use the 2-hole piston in the sideshock with stock-oil. works very well!

What is the difference in handling when using the slider facing the rear?

Default front end hole spacing

can someone with one of these - measure to see if the holes line up with OTHER cars ie: Associated type - so we can try the serpent front end on other cars?

He guys!!

@siebenelch: Can I sent you my silver parts :-)
I want all in orange :-)

Ok, we had our first German Nats qualifier this weekend, and my car was fu..ing awesome!
I turned the slider and almost moved the bars fully to the rear. I used 3000cst! oil in the side shock, which improved the car a lot.

There were a lot of S120 cars.....I think only one t-bar broke the hole weekend. All cars were on thin t-bars.

Best tires combos were rear Jaco yellow or doublepink and lilac fronts. The rear tire choice depends on the driver. For me doublepink was more consistent, as yellow started to slide a little after 5 minutes.

I used three degree front blocks again and moved my cells way to the front. (track had huge grip)
Speed 8 HD again!

Some of the guys even used only the slider for tweaking...which worked well also. Its little harder without the bars....but also damps little less.

Default s120

hi guys
We do have some problem with the rear axle. The steel part is coming loose.
It seems that the glueing is not done properly, any one else who have the same problem ? I did try to glue it back but then its some cracks on carbonaxle thats make the steel axle not centering after glueing....

And then a ques for mr blonde, what gearratio do you use ?
im using brushless with 5.5t motor, but with power left after 8min im
going to get a 4.5t motor....

I had the same problem with the rear axle. I cleaned both the carbon and the metal parts and glued them with a strong two component glue. Works well.
I screwed the plastic nut on an M4 screw to cut the thread a bit before putting on the axle.
With a 4,5T motor I suggest you to start with a 33 mm roll out. Increase the roll out if your track is a fast track and the motor does not heat over 90C after 8 minutes. Decrease the roll out if your motor gets too hot or if you run on a technical track.

Hi Markus,
Turned the slider: Did you do the same as we can see on siebenelch's pictures?
Some guys used the slider for tweaking: i do not understand this. Please explain.
cheers,

He guys!
First...well this is not a motor thread ...but I will answer.

33mm for a 4.5 turn is only ok with a big rotor...as it has less rpm and more torque.
For a smaller rotor I would suggest 29-31 mm with a 13mm magnet and 28-30 mm for a even smaller rotor. (magnet)

Than....the slider....turn it the other way around than in the kit. Than the steel blades show to the rear. There are marks on the steel blades. On my blades you can only see 4 marks pointing backwards. I moved the slider very far backwards...almost touching the rear t-bar pivot.

Well....to be honest...I do not know what happened to the rear axle..in the last serie of cars there is a problem. Factory is working on it.

Ah yeah...before I forget...there will be updated thick t-bar in 1-2 weeks. The thin is perfect though!
Have fun!
Markus
