Hey Steve, I would like to know what would be an equivalent brushed motor to the gtb/7.5 with sintered rotor, running 4x4 in the dirt. There are different opinions on what the brushless are equivalent to, so I figured I would ask you. I use the gtx speedo, and will probably get a checkpoint motor. I was thinking 12x2 but not sure.

Mr. Weiss Sir

Would you be able to list the brushed equivalents of the rest of the velocity series motors (C/W sintered rotors) as well.

Hey guys,

Making an "equivalency list" is difficult because opinons vary, but here is generally what I think:

3.5R = 6-7 turn brushed
4.5R = 7-8 turn brushed
5.5R= 9-10 turn brushed
6.5R= 10-11 turn Brushed
7.5R= 12-13 turn Brushed
8.5R= 14-15 turn brushed

10.5= 19 turn brushed

13.5 = 27 turn brushed

I am intrested in what would be the most powerful motor battery combo you could put in a standard Touring Car assuming you need a reliable 5 minute run time on a open large asphalt road course.
Assume there is not a 6 cell 7.4 volt restriction.
Could you use one of those 3 cell lippos or maybe 9 sub-C cells?
Would a high KV brushless or a low turn brushed be best?

[Obviously at some point too much voltage is a problem also too much power would at some point damage the drive train]

The GTX comes prewired with 14 AWG wires and power cap already factory installed.

To my knowledge the 9A rating is a continuous rating.

Imjohnah,

I'm not exactly how to answer your question... I think if you're looking to lower your laptimes around a track I find it hard to believe that you will be able to go faster with anything but a 6 cell 3.5R/4.5R type combo...

You could load your car with more cells which could potentially make it go faster in a straight line but the fact of the matter is that much weight will have to go slower through the corners...so anything that you "gain" on the main straight will be lost in the corners.

Even with lipos at the same weight you can only go through corners so fast so I'm really not sure that you're buying yourself much making your car faster/harder to drive ...

I wish.

Then maybe I could see into people's heads and see what makes them so obtuse.

Man I want GRAW2. The demo was insane. But I'll have to wait. Gears is fun online once you get past the 12 year olds who shouldn't be playing, but they talk trash and beat the heck out of you. Nothing worse then being killed then having to listening to a cracking voice tell you how much you suck.....


my Live name is Faithless7xl, add me if you're ever on Gears. You too Steve. Anyone else with Xbox. I don't care, I need friends lol
