The RMT had a big binder of values from the motors submitted when we were at the outdoor nats last year. I have no idea what values they used at the birds 2 years ago, they wouldn't tell anyone what their motors read, or how close, just a pass or fail.

I must have not have purchased the 'hotness'. My D3.5's are about a 1.5 points lower than my best Reedys.

TYPE WIND #1 #2 #3 Average
D3.5 17.5 21.3 21.2 21.5 21.333
D3.5 17.5 21.3 21.4 21.3 21.333

The Reedys dont fade and I didnt have to spend another $40 to get the high-torque rotors.

Are you measuring from the bottom "ring" to each of the poles?

Snowbirds used motor readings gathered from the brl oval series to come up with an average. Every motor raced was logged and then they ran statistics and standard devitations to make a theroretical bell curve and get a range of "average" numbers. I know for the brl last year only one class was won with a better than average motor. And one was won with what should have been a bad motor. Rest were average motors.

No I do not know what the numbers are.

I measure at the solder tabs. Good enough for Dieter, good enough for me. Besides - that seems to be the place they measured them at Snowbirds.

Pretty much same numbers on the one I bought today and the other one in the case.

The numbers are lower than other manufacturers but they seem to have a small variance from D3.5 to D3.5. Consistent is good.

Top fuel. Good to be the king!

I give it 10 minutes and Hanulec buys out the lot!

Have you ran one with that measured out like that?

No havent ran one like that yet. Its sitting and growing better with age....Not sure who will get that one for IIC...

Ive seen some others close to it but not that low. Most are right where the one you posted are. Very consistent for the most part. This is truely the first motor that I have seen that on the dyno one with lower resistance dyno's better. Usually I cant tell the difference on the dyno with a lower resistance motor.

I'm thinking of going to the IIC this year.

How will tech be done? Motors, weight, etc?

Will it be done like ROAR does it, motors checked and sealed before qualifying?

Thanks in advance

Here is how it was done in the past years. You present your car to the tech area for visual inspection. Then they check your battery voltage. If your voltage is to high you have the opportunity to go fix it and present your car again. If ok, then you proceed to the speed control check if you are not running a modified class to verify you have it in the correct mode. After that your car is weighed to make sure it meets the weight requirement. Then you move to the stone where ride height, wing, and if WGT rear track is measured.

After the race, while you are marshalling, cars are inspected for the above mentioned items and the tech crew reserves the right to keep the car for further investigation.

There maybe changes this year but this is how it was done in the past.

Overall, it is a pretty painless process and it tends to flow pretty quickly. Just don't be that guy that comes up 30 seconds before you go on the track and expect them hold up the program for you.
