I'd figure someone here would know. There is no harm in asking.
Yea you emailed them Saturday 40 minutes before you posted here. Really giving them a lot of time to get back to you on a weekend.

You must really be bored. That's still no excuse for lack of attention in the workplace.

Does anyone know the specs of the bearings and where can I get one?
Thanks

Hey guys, I recently purchased a Team EPIC D3 "Monster Horsepower" 13.5t to run in a boosted touring car class. I'm using a Tekin RS as a speedo.

I've got a problem where I have excessive 'drag' brake during corner entry. I quote 'drag' since I have no drag brake specified on the speedo. The only thing I can think of is that the motor itself is causing the drag. I've noticed that there's quite a bit of 'cog' in the motor when you rotate the wheels by hand - strong magnets, I assume.

I'd like the motor to run a bit freer; my first thought was to add some push control, but it (strangely enough) didn't have any effect. I know in 1/12 that push control works exrtremely well, allowing the car to roll through the corners better. However, it doesn't seem to have much effect with the D3.

Anyone have any suggestions? The drive train runs free, so I don't think the issue comes from that.

Thanks!

(I'm also going to post this on the Tekin RS thread, as this thread hasn't seen much activity lately).

Does the motor get hot fast? Check the bearings in the motor and make sure it isn't shimmed too tight. Does it have the stock purple rotor in it? My D3 doesn't feel notchy or tight with the stock purple rotor in it. I know with a larger tuning rotor it will feel that way.

You can also try running a larger pinion and spur. The bigger pinion will let the car roll more freely than a smaller one.

Good luck

Check the soldering of your esc power wires on to the buss bars of your motor as some wire strands could have connected to the other terminals during your soldering. Even a tiny single strand could induce a "braking" effect when you are in neutral. Just my two cents worth.

Nope, not hot at all. Motor comes off the track at about 120F. I don't run turbo, just boost. Yes, I believe it has the stock purple rotor.

Don't think this is the cause - only a small amount of wire is exposed, and what is exposed is inserted through the holes in the terminals, and soldered on the other side. So, it's pretty much impossible to have strands crossing over.

I'll check it out tho. Thanks for the suggestion.

Default starting point

Hi guys, finally ordered a D3 13.5t today after much deliberation!!

Anything I need to be aware of? ie what FDR should I run (indoor track 30mtr x 20mtr), how much timing should I put on the motor itself?

I will be running boosted.

Thanks

Have seen your solder job at the track and your leads look good. I would take apart the motor and roll the front/back bearings to see if they are free.

Next is shine a flash light and examine the stators surface a couple of my d3's after running the extra glue (stator epoxy) would melt into the center and rub against the magnet causing drag. Had to slowly file at it until flat again.
