The MM just pretty much does every of the above plus add a lot more features to it.

One more thing is that you can't adjust voltage while the GFX is breaking a motor in, but you can do that with the MM. For $160, it's a little bit spendy, but I got a used one for a little over $100, and it works perfectly so it's worth it in my mind.

The MM is just trick.

Thanks Dom for the Info, i am just looking for something more compact rather than my Turbo 35.
on another note Competion Electronics coming out with new firmware to fix motor Voltage adjust. E-mail them to get more information.

Thanks! I'll do that.

I'm currently using a Futaba CDR-5000 and GFX as chargers, then the MM as motor break-in machine.... I'm hauling just about the 2 biggest chargers out there, thinking about getting a MR cell master to replace the Futaba.

You are aware that the Motor Master doesn't charge batteries? Cell Master is Much-More's charger.

Default TIMING

Hi Guys,
I am testing the same modified motor at different timing settings and I am wondering how to interpret the readings to find the best timing setting?
Is the best setting at the point where you get most RPM per Amp drawn, or should you look to get a set Amp draw from the motor?
Obviously the more timing - the more RPM I get but also more Amp draw.
Help!

I'd probably replace the GFX before the Futaba,I have two gfx's,the only downside to the Futaba is it doesn't have a motor run feaure,but if you have a mm you won't need it,the MM and the Futaba is a killer combo.

Actually my 8T mods draw less amp then stock motors (if the stock motors haven't been "tuned"), I went 6v on the motor run with a 8X1, didn't trip the MM to go offline.

Yes, low turn mods are no problem for the motor master.

Running a mod in 6 cell CTX mode will get you a lot of attention in the pits !

Got a few questions....

Looking at getting a Team Orion Motor Performance Monitor and I believe it doesn't have the "quick test" function. What is the value of that function??

Also... is it okay to run 7-8-9 turn Mod Motors (including DC Motors, haha) on this? I ask just cause i don't want it to cut off my power supply or blow a fuse or something.

I have tested a 6x1 V2 using CTX test with a 24 amp power supply with no problems at all, but only once though as I was worried I'm gonna fry something inside. And Oh, you will love the sound when the motor screams!!! weeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!

I just want to make sure that the Orion version will do the same thats all. I think it will, but with all the varying versions of motor masters, its all become a little confusing.

I wouldnt be running any low turn motor on the checker constantly, i have hheard a few stories of motors throwing a wind..

Plus free reving them with no load doesnt do them any favours either!!

Simon,

To be honest i have never used the quick test function on the motor master
