Great job on your win Jason. You definately earned it. As for me, Vegas was the best time I had losing an rc car race ever!

Question:

Using a new motor dyno, it tells me the amp draw and the rpm's. I'm dyno'ing at 5volts and unsure if the higher the draw amp the better the tune/motor?

I changed to cavity style brushes and the draw is approx 7amps then put a red spring on the positive side and the draw came up to 7.5amps.

Got some tips or advise on what I should be doing to make the best rpm's and torque?

Hi Guys, open question to anyone who can help.
Running a FT TC4 with checkpoint 9X1 and really good batteries and keep spinning the tires off the rims purely due to the power. Any suggestions on a fix???

Barry--

Dyno's are good tools to have... but the best test for a motor is ALWAYS on the track.

What good is a dyno result number if it doesn't help yeild good lap times or the motor only runs that way for 30 seconds on the track?

I would use the dyno to see what sort of things do what as far as pulling current, what produces rpm...all so you can try them out on the track and see what actually works best for you out on the track.

Then, once you have a good basline motor setup you can use the dyno to track the motor's performance over time or to compare differnet motors with simlilar setups to find your "best" motor.


Speedbug--

This might sound a bit simplistic...but just make sure your tires are glued well... we run 7-turn speed motors all the time and keep the tires on the rims....

Some steps you can take: clean the inside bead of the tire and the rim with motor spray or rubbing alcohol. Next, use a high quality CA glue... Losi blue or red generally get the trick done

Thanks i'll try the alcohol. Is it worth scuffing the surfaces with sand paper or something before glueing?

no need for sandpaper, just use some scotch-brite....

No need for scotch brite, just use the rubbing alcohol or motor spray I prefer the Losi blue glue, seems to hold better than the red.
