my current setup. tested by several drivers. they all liked it as it has tons of steering but is still controlable.

Hi Martin, Are you running the HB front and rear hubs because of geometry or pin hieght? I'm just asking since I have done the CGM mod but opted to use the old MR4-TC front hubs just for a little more front lock.


Can you also post one of your asphalt set ups?

i use the redish shivering gh chassi both asphalt and carpet

the carpet setup I have postet works on asphalt too. the only thing i changed from asphalt to carpet is the droop and the rideheight

capret: 4,5/5 droop 6/5

asphalt: 5/5,6 droop 5,5/5 and cut topdeck

i use the hb stuff because of the geometry

Unless your track is really short or tight I would be aiming in the 3.9-4.5 FDR area. WE run on a med length open asphalt track and my car is geared 4.1ish FDR. Start with 4.5FDR and gradually gear taller while checking motor temp. Too hot will destroy the magnets, but you need tall gearing to make use of the torque these motors have.

would you recommend me getting a motor heat sink if i use that tall drive ratio? by the way i use sub-c's so my car would be heavy.. i use johnson and i dont think the magnets are strong enough to produce that torque.. i havent tried though i might be wrong...

Anything you use such as heat-sinks or fans will help. Just run a minute at a time then check temp. There is such a variance in the quality of can motors that there is no set drive ratio. Most are torque motors and every now and then you will get a screamer that revs maybe 2-4000rpm higher though these are a rarity.

Just adjust gearing using motor temp.
