My Bad - I was getting confused with a Capacitor. I've only used KO Propo diodes recently which have the +ve marked clearly without strips, so when I saw grey strip (in the description given above), I immediately thought of capacitors as that's the only thing I've seen on my car with strips lately.

Sorry....

Default Which Mod Motor for TA04

Hi All,

I've been racing nitro onroad for the last two years, and decided to give electric a chance since the Tamiya USA track is only 15 minutes away from me.

Anyway, I picked up a TA04, and needed some suggestions on which mod motor to run. I'm going to be running the Aliso Track, and possibly Socal track in Huntington Beach CA. Both are decent medium size tracks.

Since I'm fairly new to this car, I need specific information on which motor to buy, even down to the numbers (ie 11x1, 11x2, etc), and what ratio I should start with the suggested motor.

Lastly, if you could throw some setup suggestions for this car, I would really appreciated. Sorry to throw this out on the 415 tread, but I knew all the "experts" are on this tread.

Hi,

I know little bout this car,so I only can give you a rough what kinda motor you should maybe get and maybe the gear ratio...

You can try a 9 or 8 turn.As you say you race nitro cars for 2 years,so I'm assuming you can handle speeds well...As for gearing, I'll usually gear my 9 turn quite conservatively at 8.262 and my 8 turn about 8.748.

Hope this helps...

Do you guys know a good starting point gear ratio with a 19T motor for this car? It's for a indoor track.

Thanks.

how longs the main straight?
Aim to have the motor reving out about 2/3rds - 3/4rs down the straight.
At donvalley recently I was geared at 6.1, and the straight was about 50-60ft. I think this was overgeared, so try 6.5 - 7.

HiH

Hi,

The main straight is about 90 feet. Do you think 6.3 will be fine?
