Good point. Do you have a Sonic Fiddlestick tool to check spring tension?

Is the motor shimmed correctly, there should be a little play.

Sorry if this has come up before, but I've been wondering why alot of motor builders use Trinity and Reedy stock motors and do not use Orion's. Is Orion just stingy with their stuff?

Well for stock motors Orion really doesnt have anything as fast as the Trinity motors. Maybe their new stocker I hear rumors about will change that

no fiddle stick...

Verdict is that I will move my current TC motor to my 1/12th scale and put the new motor in the TC. After a little more break-in time, the motor current went down more. Seeing how the motor was just built less than a week ago, the springs are new. I got a chance to talk to the distributor for these motors, and he said tha they were built up when he picked them up on Wed. I will be picking up new spring sets soon just to have for tuning.

thanks for all your help, it was appreciated.

Default Bushing Replacement

Is there anything "special" that needs to be done to new bushings?

I just replaced some bushings in a motor and was wondering if there is anything that needs to be done to break them in.

Thanks

Just make sure they are aligned correctly, then polish them up!!!!

Polish the faces of both bushings where the spacer makes contact with the face of the bushing. Try using a q-tip in a high speed drill with a polishing compound until the 1/16th of an inch around the hole looks highly polished. I do not polish the interior of the bushings.

I picked up an armature shaft alignment tool somewhere on the internet. It is very helpful because I trust its trueness. I have experienced a few bent shafts on my Monster stock motors.

Its hard to say....are you racing it? Is it running wide open all the time, or are you on a track just playing around? If you're on the track, then ask the shop or one of the fast guys.

I've got the Fantom Binary motor, and i i use a 98t spur and 25t pinon. This creates a drive ratio of ca. 9.0. This works exelent on my local track, wich is really tight and technical. Theese motors ate totally dependant on the right gearing, or they will burn.

First, ask one of the fast guys

Second, free up the drive line (bearings, bushings, etc)

Thrid, drive smoother, you're finger has a lot of affect on your efficiency

Fourth, ask one of the fast guys.

Good Luck!
