Default Surikarn Vantage

I have an 11x2 geared at 8-8.2 on a flowing track with a 50 meter straight and at 8.3-8.5 on a 35 meter straight. This is with the stock 18 degree timimng . Gear up a tooth if you go to 12 degrees timing. Great motor. Should be good for about 10 runs with the installed sprint brushes. When you change brushes, use the enduro ones. Cut the com after 20-25 runs. Change the brushes after 2 or three cuts.

Post Soldering V2 Motors

hi guyz,

Just asking about soldering the motor wires, were exactly do you solder it. I been having these problems during every heat of the race, it keeps on getting loose especially when the motor is kinda hot but i have the right gearing of my car...of course the motor will surely gets hot...but not loosing on the soldered wires. To be exact the soldering lead on the motor can't resist the heat.

tnx

It looks like anywhere on the round copper brush hoods as the rest of the endbell has a nonconductive plating on it to prevent your motor from shorting out.

I am really glad to hear that everyone likes the motors. One thing I noticed on an earlier post that had something like when do you know when to cut the motor? I have found that when the motor needs to be cut, it will loose a little punch, but still have about the same RPM.

Someone told me I should use more timing(18degree+)with smaller pinion rather than less timing(12degree) and biger pinion in small indoor track,is it correct? I saw Thad Garner use 18degree on his motor in Cleveland race. Can you comment, thanks.

At Cleveland we used very low timing, 6 degrees and geared up on the Revolution motors.

In what situation more timing is needed? Big outdoor track? I'm talking about modified motors, 8-12turns, thanks.

Using more timing changes the powerband of the motor. It can also be used to get more top end.

Hello Josh,

I will try and explain the differences the best I can!

The Peak Vantage Modified is tuned for Off-Road, the armature and wire size gives you a smooooth power curve!
It is Timed at 18deg and comes with Enduro Brushes.

The Peak Vantage Touring is tuned for Touring Cars, it has a slightly diffrent armature that has a "wilder" power curve that is best suited for the high traction TC tracks.
It is timed at 18deg and comes with Enduro Brushes.

The Peak Surikarn Editions is also tuned for Touring Cars and I believe it comes with a armature that has more power than the std touring version, but with a litle less efficiency.
It is timed at 24deg and comes with Sprint Brushes.

I could be wrong about this information, it has not been confirmed by Peak or anything so I am not 100% sure!
Should not be far of though!


However, there is a difference, not just the stickers!!!

Which ever you choose, I guarantee you will love it, trust me!!!

All the best!
Eirik
the surikarn/atshui versions have twisted comm to produce more overlap0 creating more rpm at the expense of efficiancy.
