Default Snowbirds Motors????????/

I was just curious how these motors fared for numbers... i am curious if epoxy balancing works any better.. the stock was an epoxy balanced monster so was it better....

and how were the 19 t handouts... thanks

The motors were much better then last years lead sinkers. On a Fantom Dyno We got from 62-65 watts, but I heard of some people getting 67 ( depends on the dyno setup ) IMHO, the 19t were good too, not as good a "good" Chamealeon but good none the less. I had to crank my timing up to 36 degrees to get the power up.

One thing I do not like about the motors, is that both of them have a chrome can and Purple endbell. A racer I knew through the wrong motor in because he was in a rush ( overslept). Maybe they can put a differnt color endbell on them.

The motors were decent.

My Stock motor for Touring was your basic Putnam Brush with Red Springs.

19 Turn I ran the Putnam X Brush and had gobs of power in the main. To bad I broke 4 out of my 6 quals in stock and 19 turn.

For the Club Race I ran a 25/5:04 which would have put me in the middle of the B main for 19 Turn Sportsman. I ran 4383 Trinity Brushes with Purple Springs and a a slit in the middle of the brush. (The Putnams were a little faster then this setup)

The motors were good, my best was a 65 watter for stock and a 95 for 19t. The 19t had to have the timing blasted to get good power though.

I don't know what the numbers on my motor were, but it was fast! It killed me to have to turn at the end of the straightaway when all I wanted to do was keep going. lol.

Explain to me how you put a stock endbell with a LOCKED TIMING TAB AND flat sides on a mod motor, let alone put a round endbell on a stock motor with two flat sides.....





Sounds like BS to me.....or we just literally found the DUMBEST RC racer EVER(him).....or in your case, the most GULLIABLE RC racer ever.


The only thing I didn't like about the motors is that they ran EXTREMELY hot no matter what you did. The things just cooked, but it was the only thing we could do to keep the power up.

EddieO, I guess your referring to my post. My point is, they can put a different colored endbell on one of the motors, so they will be VERY visually different.

Relax

Man, you don't have to be so harsh. . Mistakes happen, especially at a race like the birds, where sleep deprivation can really effect you.

I know the racer that mix-up the motors, he is NOT a cheater nor would he intentionally switch motors. Both motors were chrome cans with purple endbells and they were very similiar in looks. The first thing I thought when I saw the motors was that they would be easy to get mixed-up if you were in a hurry. Tim's point is right in that they should have been different colored endbells at least for tech's identification.

look the guy that made the mistake is not a cheater i race with the guy weekly here in florida with the little or no sleep we were getting and all the distractions on and around the track any body would have made a mistake. flat or not !
at four in the morning with 10 minutes to your heat your batteries aint fully charged
six guys pitting in a room anything can happen. pluss add in there he works for a manufacture he could not afford to do something like that intentionally i dont see eye to eye with the on a personal note but as a racer and person he is an honest guy and would not do something like that on purpose and i think another 200 or so racers in the state of florida would back me up. ENUFF SAID!
