Mr atomic, i emailed you a week or two ago in regards to some packs that are not behaving as they should and you still have not replied to my email, could you please help me rectify this problem as the packs have only been used for about 3-4 race meets.

Team RTR - Atomic has been at the Snowbird Nationals the past week. He will be arriving back home today or tommorow and I am sure he will get with you then.. please be patient as I am sure he can take care of what you need when he gets back..

Thanks

RTR - Do you have a way to put a cycle on the packs to get the #'s. Can you tell a difference in performance on the track? . Have you tried to tray they to equilize them yet?. Sorry about the delay , I sent a reply to you through email , but it got returned while I was gone to the Birds.

Ron, great job at the Birds!!! I was cheering for Ray, but I like Cuffs a lot, too so it didn't matter who won. You and Ray did a gre4at job on his cars and considering he was running a XXX-S with worn out shocks and a simple bacis carpet setup, you were definately the underdogs!!!

Not to mention you had a number of other drivers running your products. I know you can't mention some of the names, but who were the others?

i can cycle them on my CDC, but im not an expert when it comes to electric racing so im not sure of what numbers to expect. i know on average the peak voltage is about 9.1-9.2V after a 6A charge. the average voltage is about 6.9V after a 20A discharge.i equalized the packs once on a novak smart tray and there was a gain of about 90ma. i notice about midway through the race my packs greatly decline in punch and they both feel like they are dumping whereas the other pack that i bought off you is consistent throughout the whole race.

I would like to thank everbody that ran Kinetix at the race .

Texasracer - I will be running some of the events.

Bsydor - Thanks , I had a bottle of .02 in the room , you should have asked.

Tres - Thanks

Team-RTR - Most sound typical , I would suggest using the Novak tray or another every time you run the cells . This tends to help the cells in the pack stay in tune with each other . It sounds as if this is what needs to be done . Try this for a couple weeks and let me know how it goes.

Ray Darroch Edition


This is an exact replica of the motor used by Raymond Darroch to win the Novak US Indoor Touring Car Championships. Alot of time has been put into making sure this motor is perfect. Each brush is broken in differently and ready to go. Bushings are perfect , hoods are perfect. Smaller OD shims are used for the least resistance.

Binary based ROAR legal stock motor (higher rpm ,more top speed)


The motors are dyno tuned using a Robitronics Dyno with print out included in each motor.
High performance motor brushes used for maximum performance.
No need to break the motor in, it has been done.
Magnets zapped to center poles for perfection and insure the stongest can possible.
Armatures shimmed to center of magnetic field.
Brush hoods aligned for perfectly square brush contact.
Armatures trued with a diamond bit lathe.
Springs tested and tweeked for best performance.
Bushings pressed and checked for minimum resistance.
