what can you say about the new yok T-MAx motors. im using mirage prism right now but many say the t-max is the best 23t motos out there. can somebody refute or support this? thanks
I'm using mirage prism and yok T-Max (ST,LR & LT) and I must say....da T-Max and now da new Katana is my favourite.

Both the T-Maxs and Katanas are somewhat similar in performance.

For a shoot-out with the GP's on this track you shouldn't use brushless.
Go with a 8x1 brushed and you've a better chance for kicking but...

We get better run time with the brushless.

Hey guys im going to buy my 1st 23T motor and have narrowed down to these choices. T-max ST, Kawada VTr? and Team luna(dunno what name).

My lhs told me that the team luna is based off the same can as the yoks but have a neater winding than the yoks.

Can anyone tell me which of these motors are better? I run on a fairly technical track. I'm going to prep for my 1st race and would be thankful for any tips.

have tried running an xray with a luna and it was pretty fast. imusing the t-max now and it is also a good motor. although admittedly i havent had much experience with both, id say my first impressions for both motors were good.

T-Max is an RPM motor. For small and technical track, suggest u use torque motor.

Are You sure T-max is a rpm motor? i think the ST(stand up - torque) is a torque based motor.

Hey guys,

Back with another question about my Yok ST, Dave told me to gear it around 5.5 to 5.8 for med size tracks.

Whats a good ratio for racing long times? I run 15 mins+ (I dont want to overheat my ST)

I have just grabbed a 58T and 55T Spur gear for my TT-01 and am looking at getting a 22 or 23T Pinion.

Will this be suitable or will I need a larger pinion say 24T or 25T??

Thanks

JP

15min!! ... what type of battery will you be using? ... I would start with a 6.3 and then go one pinion smaller untill you get around the 6.5 range.. but I would not go any samller than that otherwize you will kill that motor... if you want to use a motor that will stay up in the RPM longer and make 15mins try the Yokomo SR...
