Default Great thread!

Hey guys.

Thanx for all the great info you've provided! I've been running silver can up till now, and have been thinking of getting a 23 turn motor. Thanx to this thread i've decided on the Tamiya TZ, i was going to get the RZ before. I'm getting the tamiya because i'd like to enter the tamiya cup too.

As a newbie to rebuildable motors, is there any special breakin procedure i should follow?

Fred

3 volts for 8-10 mins... and make sure you use some bushing oil on the bushings

No Funnily enough. the comm was fine.

I have been obviously undergearing the LT motor tho.

Thanks

thanks for the insight! which of the FLAT OUT do you recommend? read the website and there quite a few versions. its a medium sized track and best gearing with my prism pinkdot (laydown torque) before was 6.10 to give you an idea of the size.

hi dave, what gearing should I start with a Flatout L-RA? the lhs did not have any S-TA so I got the L-RA.

what can you say about the new Kawada Vx-r?

I hope you like RPM.. because that motor has a bunch.... I would start your gearing at about 6.5 and then go up or down .2 to match your track size... also make sure to cut the comm after every 3 runs and check the brushes too.
