Default soft solder

It might be interesting to note that on average, soft solder which is used in most if not all of our motors melts any where from 200 f . So it would be prudent to make sure that your motor does't go above about 160f . Even if you temp your motor after a run it could be 2- 3 minutes before you check temps in which time your motor can cool down enough to give a false true reading of the running temp.

That's why my temp gun is always in my pocket on race days, so before the car is even picked up off the track the motor temp is measured.

Agreed. Although when I took this one apart I was surprised to see that the ring was detached, but there wasn't a indication of the solder on the ring melting. I thought I would see some sort of solder trail within the can area. I have a older NEO motor that lets go like that, and you can definately see the solder trail when it melts. I got that motor used and it was when the first brushless stuff was coming out, so I'm pretty sure the previous owner had it overgeared a few times.

I'm thinking that the EPIC name transformation will be their way of backing out of warranty returns. I doubt we ever hear back again....

I got mine back about 2 weeks ago. Chad had sent me a USPS confirmation number ahead of time and from that date it took about 2 1/2 weeks to get it. Haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but I see no difference in the outside appearence. Hope it works out.

I think you'll be hard pressed to get a hold of Chad through Trinity right now during the move.

I got mine back a couple weeks ago and have been using it in my TC5 with good results. I ran it back to back with my Novak and found that I was able to turn aprox .1 sec faster laps with the Pulse. Of interest as well is better "feel" of the chassis balance wise with the Pulse being lighter weight and bringer the weight closer to center. I have gotten the new Pulse pretty hot on a few occasions with no complaints from it so far.

The melting point of 60/40 solder is 370F (approx 180C). I would sure hope that the connections were made with something as commonly used as 60/40 solder.

I may have pissed Chad with one of my e-mails

just getting old not hearing anything firm from them, and seeing others get them back, and honestly it's been seven plus months..

guess I'll send another once they say there open again
