I've not seen or run one, but RC Car Action's website has a dyno test on them.

I'm not quite sure what it really shows, but the motors seem to have more torque, efficiency and power, but less RPM (as you'd expect from a big brush motor), compared to a D4 modified of the same wind.

I'm guessing you'd need to gear them up to get similar top end.

I'd have to run one myself before making a decision on how good they are, but the design seems to make sense.

They've got new magnets too.

They will change modified racing forever!!!! HAHAHAHA!!!!!!!



Well I have heard that some if not most of the team drivers are running the D4 brush hoods and brushes on the P motors, So all they seem to want is the new magnets.........

Hi,

I just got myself a new P94 from my LHS today, but the magnet in the motor seem to be very weak when I turn it over, very much weaker than my D4. IS this normal??? I thought the new magnet should be stronger? Any advise?

Joehwee... If you read the instructions that came with the motor you will see that this is explained. Mine feels the same way.

Ok, I thought I have a bad motor. However the dyno printout was really bad for my 9x2:

Max rpm 41083
Power 222.8
eff 76.9%
trq at 208

But some of my friends told me not to trust the printout as they don't seem to be very accurate. Maybe I should put the motor on my friend's dyno to test to confirm the results.

Thanks

Well I have been running these motors for awhile now ever since the end of outdoor season, and all I have to say to whoever wants to try them is "DO IT, you will not be dissapointed" The brushes last longer then ever now, instead of a new set of brushes everyrun with a 8 or 9 turn, now u can run them up to 4 times! If anyone has any information that they need clarafication on feel free to ask?

We run a spec class using a 20 single hand wound arm, do you think this type of wind would benefit from using a P94 can and endbell?

The track is very open, with high top speed.

Yes it most deffenetly would! It would feel faster, and a load of a lot smoother.

I don't think so... the 'theoric' advantage of the big brushes are for low wind motors rather for those puppies, the big brush should act as a disk brake pad over the comm.
