Hi guys,

I'm very interested in these motors could you tell me how they'll run compared to the V2's?

Will they be closer to the rip you have with Ti based motors?

Thanks!

I ran the V2 teardown before switching over to Checkpoint, and these motors have more rip out of the corners, and make longer runtime because of their efficiency. I ran outdoors last weekend with a spool and just got the motor super hot, but had no problems with power loss or brushes coming unsoldered like I have done with V2's, KR's and Ti's.

Post Are Checkpoints available for OEM?

Hi Daryl & Duane,

I guess you've been asked this over 100 times, but can you PM or tell me when the Checkpoints be available for OEM? Team Scream are looking forward to getting hold of them.

Many thanks,
Jeremy

If you read back a couple of pages, I asked the same question and was told it would not be anytime soon....

Later EddieO

It's going to be awhile still. The demand has been great and we just need to keep up with all of the orders. I know my brother has worked the past 10 days straight trying to get these motors out. They are worth the wait.

Wow thats sounds great! I always thought the more efficiency a motor has the less rip you will get on the track, the trade off sort of thing..

But if team checkpoint managed to put both in a motor, I will be racing one!

I know round brushes a great for efficiency but not power so how do you get as much rip as Ti based motor?

Is the secret in the brush compound?

Thanks!

It's been a while since I ran a Ti motor, but the first time I grabbed the throttle on the Checkpoint, I think it was the most power I'd had to that date.

Default "Better Runtime"

Hey D&D,

It's good to see all the enthusiasm about the NEW motor.

in an effort to keep up with changing times and attitudes, the SWTour OVAL series is running "Non-Stop Enduro" racing this year. This is an effort to test the water and see just how far we can run and still be fast enough to be exciting.

Our LONGEST race was at Camarillo last month...170 laps in 22 minutes w/o a battery change, and times at the end for the 3 who were still running weren't too bad...considering everything.

This Saturday we will only be going 150 laps on the HOTROD track in Saugus. We know MORE people will be able to make time, and this should bring the speeds up a little bit.

With the NEW batteries scheduled to hit the track next year and this a possibly MORE efficient motor with long lasting brushes and great durability, maybe 150 lap MODIFIED racing will become COMMON PLACE on the Short Tracks of America~

Things are headed towards a return of the SWT Series, but for
2017 the focus will be on the Encino Velodrome (and dirt oval racing)
