Start with the medium springs and use the sprint brushes for the best performance.

thanks

Is the arm from a Chameleon 2 based motor? We've discovered that some of the newer C2's have armatures that are "cross wrapped" and will spin backwards in certain cans. I'm guessing that the magnets in the cans have different polarities to account for the arm being wrapped differently.

Joe, or anyone else, for that matter, correct me if I'm wrong.

No, that's epic. It came from a Kisbey tuned Yokomo can.

I am kind of noob with these motors. When I got it, it was hard to determine where I should solder the power wires from the speedo. I am a decent solderer but it was still extremely hard to near impossible to make this sucker work. I cleaned everything sanded down a spot on the brush tube and did my best, but today I was fooling around with the brushes and I noticed that it was soldered right on the brush wire...I give the motor wire a little tug and the brush wire snapped in half.....there must be an easier way to do this! Any tips on soldering with these motors. I don't need any basic soldering tips...but what I need to know is where and how did you solder your power wires on to this motor...thanks!

1. clean off existing solder

2. tin the side of the tube closest to the bearing

3. tin the opposite side of the same tube

4. put a small amount of solder on the brush wire

5. solder the brush wire to the side of the tube away from the bearing (solder it so that it's parallel to the brush)

6. solder the esc wires to the flat spot closest to the bearing.


As long as you have a clean iron, you shouldn't have to worry about solder wicking up the brush shunt or wire.

Another couple of tips when soldering speedo wires to these V2 motors.

1. Remove the endbell from the can. With the end being aluminium the can wiil draw the heat through the end bell.

2. Use something like a 50 W soldering iron with a 4mm chissel bit so that the tip retains its heat.

Using these tips and Pro4Capece tips you should have no problem.

So, as Zombies posted...

Has anybody had a chance to run the V2 endbell on a EPIC monster stock motor yet and if so what were the results?

Thanks, Mike

Both are running laydown brushes. The SL being the RPM version while the TL is the torque variant.

The other variants is the stand up brush type SS and TS. SS being the RPM and TS....yeap torque baby!!

Default D5 vs V2

hey guys
I want to know whats the differnce between both this motors they are both 10 doubles

1) the rpm and torque
2) the run time you get from both
3) the power differnce
4) the brush wear and how many runs you can get from both

becouse i hate cutting the comm on my D5 and i want a motor that is less maintenance

also do they have the same amount of punch

thanks

regards

(V)r>?[email protected][email protected],

The questions you are asking is not possible to answer, unless I buy a D5 and test it on my Dyno and compare the data with my V2's

However, the V2 are the best motors when it comes to maintenance!!
The new Spashett Editions from Peak is the most powerfull motor I have ever tried, efficiency is outstanding as well....!!

So if you are tired of your D5's, just buy a V2 and see for your self. You will not be disapointed, Trust me!!!!!
