Default New 23Ts

ALEX Racing should have a bunch of new 23T stock motors that are based off the new Yokomo F series can and arm... looks to be hand tuned also ..
more to come as I find out the info.

Hey Dave,

Its been a while since this thread moved. I am preparing for a invitational race this coming June 19 nothing big, just among club members but there are a few top guns too. Just got a Yok FLT. Good ?

Just got some Team Atlas brushes too MH7-069 & MH7-079. Are these good ? I have been using Putnam Green and Blue with great results and thinking of using a different variant to see if there is any difference. Any comments ?

Thanks

THe FLT is a really powerful 23T stock motor.. I suggest that you use 3600 and above batteries with it.. and the ATLAS brushes that you have are both very good... I would try to stay away from the putman brushes with this motor because they wear on the comm rather fast .. but there is power with them.

The RZ is really not a good motor for short tracks.. you might have better luck with the TZ.. .. it`s a better all around motor.. but if you need some help with the RZ.. I should be able to help.. I just need some info on your track size and such and what final gear ratio you are using

I chose the RZ cause it had laydown brushes and i didnt no if they still made stand ups.

The track measures 40m x 14m and the lanes are 3.5 m in width. My final drive ratio on the car is 6.087....

I have nothing against the TZ except on paper the RZ looked to own it... tell me otherwise and if there are better brushes for it maybe its worth a look.

THe Brushes that would work really well are the ATLAS 079 brushes.. kind of soft.. but they have good power and are not too hard on the comm.. also one more thing you might want to try with the RZ is to bring the gear ratio in the 6.2 range with that size track

thanks heaps

Are the atlas brushes u mentioned laydown ones for the RZ?
secondly are springs worth worrying about at all??

lastly will 6.2 lose me a lot of time down the straight or for that type of track do you think it would be worth the loss?

THe Brushes are Laydown.. and on the springs.. I wouldn`t change them.. the stock ones are just fine also with the Atlas brush.. you should get a bit more power and RPM

Thanks a heap Dave !! I've just lay my hands on FST. I heard this one is good too. These new Yok motors are rare in my part of the world at the moment.

You're right 'bout Putnams........but I only use them for races and I would use xenon's for weekend bashing.

I have both TZ and RZ and my favourite is the TZ on the size of track you're running. Though on paper RZ may have better numbers but the TZ is the one that shines.

With the Atlas brushes as recomended by Dave and keep the spring stock.......you'll be flying on the track.
