50 runs before needing a comm cut? If that's true, how did they pull that off?

Hopefully thats not a production model....it won't meet ROAR specs....missing a critical requirement.

It will be interesting to see if they get 50 runs.....kinda interesting there is no way to align the hoods, unless there is some magical way we can't see.

Will also be interesting if they allow OEM sales.....

It's minor, but....

Rule 5-18

All motors must have the original manufacturer's logo or name
molded into the endbell....

Just would suck to forget something so simple....

Is 5-18 still enforced per wording?

Looking at Trinity Monster stock motor, iut doesn't have have MOLDING of manufacture, nor logo. It's printed on the capicitor circuit board. I know it's splitting hairs, but it doesn't technically follow the rule. Unless it's molded into the endbell under the board (I'm not bending the end bell apart to find out though)

Older Trinty motors had them molded.. usually EPIC and Japan on them.

Wel, I don't t hink the term molded is really enforced....cause the Orion V2 motors surely don't have it molded in....looks like a machined area.

In the end, there needs to be a marking that IDs the motor....

Looks like it only has one capacitor too, which is weird.

Looks like the board on the motor has 2 SMCs? One on each side of the screw?

The motor looks pretty good, if brush slots are machined into the endbell, do you even need to align them? ala V2?

I wonder how the brushes are held in though? put the brush in, use some sort of short round spring and screw the cap over it?

More about the Checkpoint motor. The motor will have several different brush types and shapes. The main brush will be round but, with different options. The production endbells will have all the logos lazered in with all the correct markings.

The motor that is pictured is still prototype. The production endbell will be a little different but will all the features.

The testing of this motor has been great. We have serveral drivers just running it and beating it into the ground. There will be 3 to 4 different brush compounds for all the different applications.


Thanks,

I wonder how much this motor, along with others like the Orion V2, will hurt brushless motor sales? Obviously, brushless still has some advantages over motors like these (they still have lower maitenance and are more efficient), but being able to make 20 runs between comm cuts is huge...let alone 50. Awesome.

Well, until brushless can even keep up with a 19t (see paved nats results)....I don't think brushed has anything to worry about.
