Our latest batch of motors have the dyno results printed right on the motor. We are trying this instead of the sheet to see what customers think. The advantage is that you will always know the specs of each motor versus having to remember which sheet goes with which motor.

The difference in the two motors mentioned above is that the Binary2 is a quad magnet stock motor, and the Binary is a quad magnet modified motor.

I recently got your hi-temp motor spring kit and I'm wondering what tensions the springs are? Some of them are extremely stiff and I can't get a good reading on the Fiddlestick because they read beyond the tools measurement. Are they stiffer than the Trinity springs? I would appreciate any info you could provide me.

BTW, keep up the good work! Every time I've ordered something the turn-around has been super quick! Great job!

Thanks,

MM
MM,

The high temp springs are stiffer than the Trinity springs because they are designed for modified racing. The silver spring is somewhat equivilent to a Trinity purple, the red is a little stiffer, and the black is really stiff. Normally, we run the red springs.

Glad you are happy with our service As always, let us know if there is anything else we can help you with.

Does that mean the 20 pairs I bought when they first came out are not awesome?!

Rod_B,

Nope... the brush itself is the same, just some minor changes in appearances to make it stand out more

C2's

I saw on the website that the Epic C2 based 19turns are out of stock. Any idea on when they will be available again? Would you have them at your booth at the Chicago Hobby Show this weekend (I think I saw Paradigm listed)? Also, any plans to sell a Reedy Quad-Mag based 19turn? Thanks for the help!

Aaron,

No, the brushes will not cause glitching. The only reason a brush could cause glitching would be if it was getting hung up, which would be a brush hood problem.

I am hoping that we get some C2's in stock before the show. If not, we will have them very shortly after the show. We will be there, and we will take pre-orders and still honor our special show prices if you would like. We have the Reedy Quad Mag 19's on order also, but they will not be here before the show.

Brandon,

I have a motor question. Could you essentially "shave" a standard brush to make the face portion of it round like a V2 brush. Like the first 1/4 of the brush is shaved round. Or just round the corners so it isn't so square? Would that begin to take on the characteristics of a V2 brush?

-Thanks!

mafiaracers,

If you shave the edges of the brush to make it round in shape, it will create a smoother transition from each pole on the commutator, thus creating less of an arc. This will essentially make the motor more efficient and the brushes will last longer. The only downfall is that you are making each transition come on smoother, thus making the motor loose torque and overall power. This effect can be seen on the V2's... they are extremely efficient, however the torque and power is lacking compared to a D5 or TI based motor.

In regards to taking on characteristics of the V2, making a standard motor brush round will act similar. The overall effect will not be as great though because the brushes will still be able to bounce more than what a V2's brushes do. If you want to increase comm/brush life even more and get even more efficiency, try shaving off all 4 edges to make a triangle on each side of the brush, or a diamond shaped brush. This will create a more linear transition from each comm segment versus an exponential transition as seen with a round brush. The reason nobody sells a brush like this though is because its not going to be very fast. In 1/12th scale mod however, we have made some brushes like this when runtime was a major issue.

Brandon,
Thanks for all the great products. I run your RM and P2K for my stock classes and I use your Tribo and your new Black Magic's(WOW IS ALL I CAN SAY...My dyno says it increased 1000 rmp with those brushes....THATS JUST PLAIN SILLY), all of your products are top notch and your service is impecable. I do think you get reamed too much for the lack of email responce. I haven't had an issue.....I actually listened and called instead of emailing. Oh your crew on the phone is top notch also. Matt has always helped me out, even spent a couple of minutes giving a little advice. GREAT JOB, KEEP IT UP.....Oh are you planning on RCX again.....It was how I heard about you.....hint hint nudge nudge.
Thanks Agian
Stephen.
