Default Tamiya Sport Tuned Motor #53068

I am looking for tips on this motor.

What are good tips/secrets to make them faster?

What are good break-in techniques?

What are good ratios to work around on these motors. From what I know they can smoke easier compared to their Silver Canned counterparts.

It is 23T and already faster than the Johnsons or other 27Ts.
has about 17000-18000rpm. I do my breakins passive dry (coupled with other motor @2V for 3 mins), then breakin in water with tiny bit of duro alum cleaner gel for another 3mins.
I got an increement of abt 10% efficiency on my dyno, with 18500rpm. Can get more out of it, but I prefer to maintain the torque over rpm.

I will have perhaps a race using those motor.
How do you dry them completely after breakin in water?
what is duro alum cleaner gel??
Is it possible to use some comm drop on those?
thanks

You can use a CDA or compressed dry air to blow it dry after which you need to lubricate the bushings.
There're lotsof methods ppl use to breakin the bushing but I found that by immersing to water (with mixture) it's all done in a shot.
Duro is a brand I found locally, made in USA btw. U can use other similar gel (water based) use for cleaning aluminium.
It is slightly acid contained so I don't want to do long breakins.
You can experiment with what you can get, you may get better performance.
You may want to consider polishing the bushing/shaft with chrome polish cream too.
I think you can use comm drop for breakin, but I doubt you can mix it with water if that's what u asking.

Currently I am planning to do pulse passive breakin as well (3-6V), after 2V 180secs dry breakins to compare what's the result.

Hope this helps.
