I've actually been running 7 turn motors with 3300 batteries, no problems with runtime, these motors are really efficient.

Carry on the discussion folks...

Thumbs up

I am glad that everyone is having great success with the motor. I ran 3300's with a 7X1 at the Reedy race and had not problem making run time. Most of our team guys are running 7 turns like Randy stated above. The 6 turn is sick with 3700's. The 19t motor is in final stages of testing and we will have a release date later this summer. If anyone needs anymore help with the motor just let me know.

Hi Daryl,

I'm a bit curious in brush cutting on the round brush. Will the motor be a bit more punchy if I cut the round brush into straight edges?

what kind of springs come in your 8 turn motors and what would you guys recomend? Also how long do they go between skims and brushes. I usually get a meeting out of my 12x1 reinhard v2 before i skim it and 2 meetings before new sprint edge brushes as a comparison. Thanks

O Sherman and John S.

I think I have the answers to both your questions.

The infinity is the high silver brush. i gives plenty of power and lasts - and lasts - and lasts.

I have now got at least 15 runs on one motor with 7 turn armature. it's only been skimmed a couple of times and if anything it's faster now than when the brushes were new.

next question is,... where to get them? checked TowerHobbies, nothing in stock yet (except the offroad version).. I would like to get a couple 10t and a couple 8t. And those Infinity brushes..

Dom...that's why he said rollout, not final drive.
