hi guys, I'm getting back to the brushed motor scene after driving the Novak BL for 1 year.

I just got my Katana TL, was wondering what gearing i should use for a track with 12-13 seconds/lap. Super tight.

the track looks kinda big 'coz the fisheye lens, but really the straights are 60-70ft only.

tornado: I'm talking about the Subang speedway, so if you have info do share !

For a TL?? thats a little too undergeared
5.8:1 would be optimum and go .2 up or down to suit road conditions

I dunno.....I've tried 6.48 on my TC3 and I could keep up with the boys who are running around 5.6 ~ 5.8. Straight line speed is about even but my motor RPM peak earlier. At the end of the run, the motor temp is just about right ('bout 170F) and batteries are cooler than it was peaked.

Is it becoz I'm using V2 endbell ??

tornado..i'm on 5.8 right now and still it feels too torquey. But of course the motor ends up with a lot of heat (as usual,nothing too hot) and the batts feel warm(again, nothing too hot)
I'm about to go to 5.6 and see what happens.

5.6 @ Subang ?.......hmmmmm...... the last time I've ran there at 5.5x, I ended up with the com turning purple. ......my way of running is that if the motor is screaming at the top of its RPM at about 3/4 way on the straight, you're almost there.

with the latest layout, you'd have 3/4 of the far end straight, left turn and full short straight and then to the long near straightall the way. i don't really slow down, so considered 3/4 of the outer perimeter as 1 whole long straight. Very need top end.
Add to that the infield consist of an S chicane, can also do it at almost full throttle.

I need to try and see how my comm looks like after that.

Default New to 23t motors

Hello Guys!!

I would like to try and run a 23t motor on my evo3 but here in France this class doesn't exist (only 12t mod & 17t mod) so there's no feedback at all..

I read the posts about 23t motors, I can hardly believe they perform as good as some 12t mod-like motors!

Question: Could you advise me on a good motor knowing that I run on a very long track (made at first for nitro) so I'll be gearing quite long 5.xx

I could easily buy a tamiya TZ,would that be a good choice?
Any website with a big choice of 23t?

I would really appreciate some answers!!

Thanks!!
