Hi Burito,

Noticed that the specs states that input voltage for 3.5T and 3.0T to be 4.8V - 6.0V. Does it mean that these two turns are not recommended for 6 cells racing? Will I spoil the motor if I use 6 cells?

TQ

@mok: first large shipments of X12's, after initial release prior and at Worlds, went to distributors worldwide last week.
Please check with your countries LRP distributor where to order them from.

@CLK: anything with 3.5t was never meant for 6 cells anyway (no matter what manufacturer), so if you're running 6 cells or LiPo's you'll do much better when using 4.5t or maybe 4.0t!
At the Worlds we ran 4.5t with 6 cells, there was plenty of power and more would have harmed the car balance in infield.

I just got back from the Indoor Champs and used the new X-12 motors.

For TC foam modified I used the 4.5 and had plenty of power. I geared it at 8.08 final drive with 56.5mm tires. The speedo was at punch 4. I tried the 4.0but honestly it was too fast

Thanks for the reply burito. Looking forward to get my hands on those sexy X12s.

Does this also apply for Nosram?

Hi Burito,

Sidetrack a little from the thread. I'm using the VTEC batteries.
I intend to remove 1 cell from my 6 cell matched pack to run a 3.5.

After a few days of racing and practice, I want to put it back to 6 cells.
Will the entire pack still be matched?
Will the 1 cell that I removed be of better conditions compared to the other 5?

What should I do so that the entire 6 cells remain matched and perform at its peak?

Thank you

Hey, you hi-jacked the thread...

If this pack was ran over a dozen of times already before you removed the 1-cell, then there should be no problems to put it back on as the cells performance within a pack stabilised after 10 or so runs and therefore they shouldn't be far away from eachother now.

Hi Reto,

Congratulations on the superb design of the X12. We had a chance at seeing Ronald running a X12 this past weekend at the best 1/10th electric track in our country and we were all very impressed!

Also, congratulations on supporting one of the most friendly and helpful top drivers around! Ronald Volker is an example of how an ambassador of the hobby should be!

Regards,

Burito....ya guys should consider doing some 11.5T as well Market for 23T-brushed equivalent is quite good too...currently dominated by speedpassion/feigo variety

hi just want to ask what's the normal temp of the x12 motors in modified? i'm using 4.5 with smc 5000 lipo. i noticed that when i ran my motor with orion 4800 at 7.9 my temp is about 180(82 celcius). then when i used my smc 5000 with the same gearing i got 210 (about 100 celcius). so i changed my gearing to 8.2 my temp got down to 200. is that normal? i'm using profile 1-3-0-0. thanks

@Jose: thanks, I heard from Ronald that he really enjoyed his weekend in Portugal even if the weather didn't allow a lot of racing. But glad he behaved well...

@KoE: 11.5T??? Never heard of a class for this number of turns, where is that used?
But actually there is no plans for StockSpec version of X12 yet anyway, X11 StockSpecs are still running strong.

@bmmer: that is some serious gearing! What's your track size?
Because on the Worlds track in Thailand, which I consider as quite big and open, we ran ~8.5:1 with the X12 4.5t using 6-cells NiMH. Since you run LiPO, which is even stronger then 6-cell NiMH you're most likely overgeared by quite a lot even I don't know what track you run on.
