Post EPIC "D3" Duo 3

So what's the scoop.
Is this motor going to be all that and a bag of chips ?

The D3 (Duo3) is a pro racing motor designed for 2 & 4wd, 1/12th & 1/10th on-road, oval and off-road. Stronger gauss neo magnet rotor for more low end torque. The stator with higher temperature wire and a faster switching sensor board design. Fully adjustable timing. Heavy duty low drag ball bearings.

Why? Put it in your car and try it out and see what you think... The numbers really don't mean a lot.

umm yes they do.

like correct weight.

Venom has the lowest claim on weight on their motors 156grams i believe.

It was at its lowest 10grams more. stuff like that matters when you hunt for specific characteristics.

A guy i know blew some 270dollars on motors wich was no better than hes old ones.

to much motor brake and not as light as specified.

This was for 1/12.

And power does vary extremely from producer to producer.

for instance corally spesifies their red series 4.5T to have 1350 Watts!
My Corally X-BP got under 500watts so i don`t need a red series 4.5T if i need to replace it.

Same if you want a different brand the Novak 4.5T got less than half (530watts)

You need to know at least roughly how much power it delivers.

Additionally it should have been a value for how much motor brake they got.

I have run many different mod and spec motors. On the track the same turns tend to produce the same lap times but with a different feel regardless of the numbers. I would never consider using a motor I didn't like just because it weighed less.

Hey James, well with boost it seemed motors weren't everything. Everybody was dialing in the speed controls and getting their performance that way.
See ya tomorrow ?

It sort of looks like a X12 but uses the Duo1 way of timing setting, all wild speculation on my part though.

I wonder why is it so hard for some manufactures to write down the specs on the motor? Like weight, efficiency, RPM/V and so on.

Cause they would have to dyno every motor, and dynoing motors will yield different results because as the dyno and its equipment build heat the numbers will change.
