That motor is also epoxy balanced. It aint legal.

Someone mentioned asian motors a little higher up on the page.....I am actually in Japan right now. Anyway, I went to the Tamiya R&D headquarters today and their test\racetrack. I bought a Tamiya stock motor. Its 23 turns and has a pretty sweet endbell and can design. It also used standup brushes. Im gonna tune it when I get back to the states and see how it turns out. I have a hunch that itll rip!...it looks fast, and the box says its fast, so.....

David Root, my pic and post says that this arm was the Binary. Which I know is not legal... but on the page before (56)... I have the pic of my Epic Roar Stock (which is Roar Legal) that also has 56 laminations... which my last post refers to as to maybe I have a fluke since everyone is saying the Roar Stock is suppose to be 58 laminations.... Sorry for any confusion....

You mean 36 and 38 laminations. I think you got confused with the page numbers!

OK, Phew gotchya!

I have some handout motors that have 2 magnets, chrome can and purple endbell. I THINK 40 lams, but are epoxy balanced. They are really fast but not legal for me to use either. Jim Greenmyer is now workig for trinity again, so I don't think we will be seeing more motors with less laminations.

All roar legal stock motors use bushings. Bearings are illegal in stock.

I thought I saw in the last ROAR mailing that they changed it to allow bearings..perhaps I mis-read it, as I didnt see it on the ROAR webpage just now

You can put bearings in a Monster. No it will not be ROAR legal but for practicing it'll make for a more efficient motor

I just finished putting the red and green springs in my Monster also with the Trinity 4499 brushes. The springs, I got from Agressive R/C Technologies in Black Diamond, WA. Anyone know anything about these guys? The green overhead springs are 9 oz. and the red are 11 oz., are these rates correct? The springs came in pairs, but now I have 1 green for the positive and 1 red for the negative. Should I try this sometime? The change definitely made a difference, is there anything else I can do to make it faster?
I sprayed the bushings out too, but I used some of Trinity's comm oil to re-lube them. Was this ok

Whats up Jaybee,

I think the springs that Aggressive uses are just trinity springs. Ususally the ratign is just an "in the ballpark" kinda rating. Most motor springs nowadays are very very very inconsistant. Thats why I use a Sonic Fiddle Stick. They give a reading of how stiff a spring is while it is on the motor, and it also takes into acount how big your comm is, and how long your brushes are. You can get them from Paradigm Racing.

Now about using the softer spring on the pos side. That usually never works to well. Ususally most fo the electricity travels through the positive end of the motor, so you need a stiffer spring to keep it from getting "blown" away from the comm and prevent arching, glazing, and excessive com wear. So always run a stiffer spring on the pos side, or run equal rate spring on both ends.

Personally, I always use Tribo for my bushings. It's some uber cool lubricant that Team Paradigm sells as well. I use it when breaking in bushings, and as a general lube. Probably the most important thing with any motor is to align the brush hoods properly. Sometimes it takes a while, but it's worth it. It reduces com and brush wear, and gives a major boost in power. Hope this helps dude.

-Korey
