Its just how the arm is wound. ROAR used to require a cross wrap but they changed it to the more popular Hemi wind. Not much differnce... it supposed to be about a 1/2 turn less than a cross wrap arm but on the track I cant tell the difference. Oh... dont mix up the hemi and cross wrapped arms and cans because the cross wrap arm in a hemi can will run back wards and vice versa.

What of kind of rollout would you run for a Chameleon 2? My track is about 85x40.

Have the V2 endbell motors become less popular? I am just about to change to the 19t class, and its seems they are not used as much and that peak and orion have even started to sell standard hood motors under the element/dynasty names. What is currently a good indoor 19t motor and does anyone know much about the Altas red can motors that I have seen in the shops.

If you want a ROAR legal motor you need a KD19 or a C2..

I am sure someone has posted answers to this before, but i am not sure how to find this answer.

I have the original 19T orion v2 (the element) motor with sprint brushes and original springs.

Under no load and at 2.5V what is suppose to be the average current draw?

Please answer only if you actually own one and have tried this.

I am getting surprisingly low numbers and have yet to find an answer...

I would just like to give some friendly advise, try not to get caught up in what the numbers mean, unless your using a true dyno like the Fantom, motor checkers like the Orion and MMR are nice to get an idea for gearing, other than that the track is the best test of a motor.

I think a lot of people would say that the Novak 10.5 is faster than your average 19 turn motor, especially because you can gear them higher.

They will also stay at the same speed for a long period of time while the brushless motor needs to be maintained consistently (rebuilt) to keep it at maximum performance.

Hi all,

I skimmed through looking for a few answers but didn't find anything definitive. I've got an Element and a Money, neither of which are performing the way I think they should. I'm running them on nickel cells (4600's all the way down to 3300's) in 2wd offroad buggy and truck. Where should I start as far as brushes and springs are concerned? I just need a ballpark on compound and stiffness and I can take it from there. Thanks in advance!

You really can't go wrong with F brushes from finishline.
