Has any body tried fitting ceramic bearings into their motors ? What have you gained?

Default Sensor board

Hi

i have repalced my sensor board on my MC2, it was never accurate when I got it as it was out by 4*. Since I have replaced it is within 1* ( 40, 41 , 40) so very accurate now. So my question is what can I expect to gain with a more accurate sensor board?

I initially thought I would be getting a higher KV but I didnít see any gains.

You should get a more consistent motor all around. I've seen a rise in RPM and efficiency on my dyno after I adjust the sensors. If you don't see any gain, you might not have the timing the same? What motor checker are you using?

I have a Gforce motor analyser, I origanly had it set at 40* on the motor but when putting It on the analyser timing was 37* (it was pulling around 2.7amps and showing Kv between 4025 -4050. So I did the same when I put the new sensor board in. So I set the motor at 40* so it was now reading 40* on the analyser, it was pulling 3.2amps and showing Kv of around 4075.

I dont have a dyno, I will be testing it on the track next week.

The analyser that I have is the same black rebranded one you can get online from most rc retailers.

Hi all

The mc2 ran flawlesy last night, I couldnít believe the difference in performance of the motor being 135-140f compared to 165f. Last nights I ran it with a fan in my gt12 (itís a 1/12 car, based on a LMP), the motor was consistent all the way through the run without any drop off. Itís felt the same at the start compared to the end of the run.

I settled on 42* of timing, i was at 44* but went down by 2 due to it being a very twisty infield.

Usually a more efficient motor - should lower operational temps slightly. While 4* is substantial - it's not that much out of whack that it will cause significant reaction in the motor.

I assume that the new Motiv MC3 will not be allowed at the IIC in November because Scotty already posted an approved motor list dated May 2018.

Anyone know for sure?
