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.

Sometimes we would gearup our EP with brushless setup to have a "showdown" with the GP boys. It does even things up a bit but the GP's acceleration is awesome on the straight and we "shine" in the infields.
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.

Am referring to T-Max Zero-LR which we all run in our place.

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...
