I guess that is cool....I just self filter

Getting po'ed at someone over the net is like winning the special oylmpics.....you all heard that one

My dad and I "dragged" out in the street today. Needless to say if we were racing for slips I'd be out a really killer car.

Thanks for the help....on I go.....-Dan

Could it have anything to do with batteries? I use un-matched GP3300's chargeded @6.5A (lot of the locals like 8.5 for stock)
charging at 8.5? what r they nuts? thatll kill runtime and life span of batteries...i charge at 6 amps and ive charged at 5 amps as well and gained 20 seconds additional runtime...so where does 8.5 get you

unmatched cells will slow you down noticeably....try some matched cells (Surge has awesome products and superior service) even if you run the lowest voltage matched cells theyll be faster then unmatched cells...in all my racing even at national races ive only run 1.145 packs(and placed well in my class)...but now its time to turn it up a notch and get some serious power...1.18+ here we come

(i charge at those amps because i feel it gives a good place for both lifespan and performance)

Geoff- You think 8.5 is nuts? Try 10 or higher most of the time at big events. That is no lie. The stock and 19t class at snowbirds was insane. 10 amps was almost a normal charging for at least half to 75 percent of the snowbirds field.

Steve, were YOU charging at 10 amps too?

Anyway this has gotten kinda off topic...motors anyone?

My 2 cents...

Paradigm Monster you can't go wrong. I don't believe I've ever heard anyone saying they got a Paradigm motor that was slow.

Never ran a Fuku motor so I can't say, but it looks like they're good.

I say get whatever your local dealer has. If you don't support them, where will you go race the car you are putting it into? I love the Fukuyama products and I run their cells but please remember to support your LHS.

People keep saying they "tune" their motors and "mess around" with them.

Could you guy spost what you guys fiddle with?

just brush and spring combo?

I don't see alot to do...

polish the armature ends, change brushes/spring and oil the bushings...

how do you "fiddle" with your motor to make it "better"?

Also,
Where do people get their rpm numbers from?

Integy motor dyno? MPM? Fantom? Tekin? robo? CE?
