Daryl said on another thread that they were going to release a fan kit soon.

I had some extra standoffs, grub screws and 25mm fan and was able to make one for mine... similar to what is shown on Hara's car..
I'll take some pics and post later tonight...

I'm about to receive 2 CP 19t's (thanx ftntc3), and plan on using them for 12th asphalt- with that being said how should they be geared, and what brush/spring combo does the trick? And how many runs can I usually get before A cut is mandatory? I grabbed these in hopes to keep maintenance down vs. other motors out there, thanx in advance.

Changed the brushes for the first time. When I went to break in the new brushes I noticed the motor was making a faint chittering noise. The postive brush seems to be arching alittle. Basically my question is..are the springs that come with the motor the same or are they different..I may have reversed them and Im wondering if thatl cause the chittering Im hearing. If they are the same then Im assuming the brushes just need to be broken in.

I was running the Money when they first came out and I was pleased with the speed but I can't remember how I was gearing it. Then switched to the KD and it ROCKS in 12th but 2 weeks ago went back to the Money and it was SLOOOWW, only because I had it wayy undergeared trying to use what I was using for the KD. Went from a 96/31 to an 88/39 on 1.80" rear & 1.72" Pro-cuts Whoa!!-woke it right the hell up. That's with motor outta the box. Had a good 4 runs outta those Atlas's; I could've pushed 2-4 more runs but why? So I went to silver springs/infinity brushes. No great gain in anything but a bit of amp draw I'll see how many runs I can get on these pups.
Long story short- gear TALL

Yeah, definitely gear tall. I rollout at 1.25 (32mm) in a T2 and it comes off the track at 164 degrees almost every time...

Well when I first got my money motor, I listened to all the stuff here that said "gear tall", all the talk about "5.6-5.8" and all that....

...personally, I didn't see the results.

The motor was too soft, got way too hot, and was just plain sluggish. And wasn't any faster than a KD geared at 7.2 final.


I went to running mine geared at a more reasonable 6.5 with the Atlas brushes and the motor felt much better and seemed to be just as fast without the nuclear reactor temps. Once I got the Infinity brushes, I went to gearing it at 6.9 and it was even better. Was just as fast a KD, except without going through two sets of brushes every race day like a KD does. Plus, I can still venture down into the 6.3-6.5 range if I really need more top speed.

People can "gear tall" if they want to, but my experience with this, and just about all motors, tells me that, its going to go 'only so fast', and that anything after that is just shortening the life of the motor with excessive heat. To me, with my particular motor, that 'only so fast' barrier seems to be right around the 6.2 range. Everything below that was just sluggish and hot.

I'm definitely happy with the Money Motor. But that 5.8 gearing....well I guess it just wasn't for me...

LOL! you guys can not gear all the same, i wouldnt listen to anyone about gearing without showing thema pic of your current track layout, Depends on teh straights, straight lines in teh track, 90's, 180's, etc! Gear to lap times, mods will get up to 180-200 easily! Get a Fan to reduce the comm heat. Oil your bearings after everything you spray the can and endbell with motorspray!

I've seen Darkseids motor run much better at 6.5 and up. Our track is medium sized with a 125 ft straight.

Unfortunately, you know all too well what I'm talking about with the going through brushes. Well at least with those damn 767 brushes...

A whole different story with the Hurricanes though.
