stuck: I doubt it'll run as good as specifically designed stockers, which manufacturers have spent dozens of hours on, to squeeze that extra hundredth of a watt out of them... unless you time the crap out of it, in which case not only it is illegal, but it's also unfair to your fellow stock racer friends. If you do your testing during a race, that is. In practice you can do whatever you want... experimenting is cool

don't feel cold: weird... on of the characteristics of the (non-twisted comm) V2 is that it runs way cooler than the other motors, which helps prevent magnetic field decrease at the i4-min moment... Maybe Surikarn was just performing some testing...

Compare to my D5 10x2, I can feel that at least >20% more power than the V2???

The V2 tested with ratio 8.85 and 8.55, the 8.85 give better run time but still does not produce any good performance, no punch and no top end.

Tested with motor management, it shows max RPM at 44000, but I have 55000RPM when tested with the Jukka Steenari version 8x2.

Is anyone know the main different between these two V2 motors?
Good news.

I have a very good result after I trued the comm yesterday.
It hits 52800RPM now.

try 75t spur and 21t pinion or 72spur 20pin, should give you an fdr of around 8.8 - 9

I believe that the if the led is on its telling you that your capicitors for reducing glitching are working...so if the light is off that's why you're experiencing some glitches. So i guess just check all the solders on those caps and see if they are all ok...pretty much just try to get that led back on...as far as it being slow you got me there...sorry

take the endbell of and you see a circuit board.
this has got a connection using a metal strip that goes to the brushe tube.
if this isnt touching the tube then the caps wonts be working and causing the glitching.
if they are touching but the LED isnt coming on then the board may have blown.

i havent heard of a big brush but in europe were we have 12 turn limit some of us cut the brushes down to make the littler.this gives more power but less overlap and increases effeciancy.

Do you have a picture of what they look like when you cut them down?

I guess t's more efficient due to less drag on the com because of the reduced surface area...

theres less drag on the motor plus theres less overlap=more effciancy.

Hi
Thinking about buying one of these motors for my Pro4, wondering which version to get.
Our tracks change every two meets but are mostly pretty tight, usually with one straight about 20-25 meters or so (sorry never measured it)
What would be the best version to get?
Is there a website that will give me the specs of each version?
