Default Re: Something when Crazy

Hey everyone,

Sorry I haven't been on lately to answer questions. Between the Chicago Hobby show and some other races in the last 2 weeks, I have been extremely busy. Now things are settling back down, so I will try to get online every night again to answer questions.

I'll go back right now and reply to everything I missed....

After the rebuild, it ran 34800 rpms @ 4 volts and 9.6 amps

I tried to dyno it, but the dyno kept reading an error.

Anyone???

I haven't put it on the track yet.

jc510,

With a fresh cut and newly zapped magnets, the motor should perform better and pull more amps. I'm not sure why your dyno would error out though unless you don't have enough power going to it. Which dyno is it and what are you powering it with?

I wouldnt recommend running the motors at more than 3 volts. If you crank the power up to 7.2v, that will draw waaayy to many amps and the turbo will shut down. There really is no need to crank the voltage up higher than 3 volts as it is simply harder on the comm and brushes.

I put the car on the track with the normal gearing. The motor lacks torque. Once it winds out it go's very fast, even lurches forward at speed. I'm going to try dropping 5 teeth.

The LHS thinks the brush could be hung on something, and not in full contact with the com.

I've run other motors on my dyno since. The dyno is the CS powercheck. I've never tested a mod motor with high rpms on it. Maybe it's for stock or low rpm motors?
Thanks

Jeremy

Default Black Magic Brushes

I used the new Black Magic brush for the first time this weekend and I must say I was impressed. Our current onroad layout has a 154' straightaway with the rest of it being kinda tight. The brushes gave good rip in the tight area but still had good rpm for the straight. Thanks Brandon for a great product.

We're very happy that they're so popular, just wish we hadn't run out.
They should be ready to ship sometime next week, possibly before depending on our workload with motors.

Hey Matt,
Thanks for gettign that motor out to ALAN he got it in two days. He sends his thanks and appriciation. I think I might have some more people coming to you for their Motor needs. The big SoCal race is this weekend and a couple guys are running your motors, Should see some great results. Once I hear how things go down I will post them here.

Thanks again for always going that extra mile.

Thanks for giving us the oppurtunity to sponsor the race too! I will be at a big offroad race this weekend in Illinios, so I wont make the first round, but I will definitely try to make it to as many of them as I can!
