You'll probably be fine with the springs it comes with. The CP$ has more torque than you'll need for a relatively short track, such as yours. I've never run it on dirt but I can just imagine the roosters it could generate.

Hey guys I have a question. I ran the Checkpoint this weekend with foams on asphalt in the fk05. I used the Team Tamale fan mount with two 25mm Novak fans mounted. Gearing was 116x40. The motor came off the track consistently @ 180F with no signs of fade at the end of the battery pack.
Is this good or bad? My mission in life is not to run the motor into the ground at one race but rather to promote the life of the motor.

I'm still experimenting here, but I'd appreciate everybodys input. The motor is ballistic, but i choose to err on the side of caution.

Don

Don, assuming you're running your foams 58mm or less, sounds like you're right on track. If the car is carrrying good corner speed and your lap times aren't far off, then hang another tooth and see what it does.

Ok sounds like a plan. Yes the foams are 58mm .My main concern was the temp is was coming off the track with. But now................ (mad scientist laugh) more speed, more speed, more speed. The car acts like it has a two speed. Somewhere mid track on the straight it just grows ............

I have a question when re-shimming the CP $ and removing the rubber O rings. Should I place one of those larger diameter fiberglass type washers against the com side of the arm first to keep oil off the com then brass shims or is it unnessary because of it has bearings and not bushings like stock motors?

Thanks ~michael

Why do you want to remove the o-ring? The o-ring gets rid of the slop without sideloading the bearings (if properly shimmed).

To make the motor more effiecent. I removed the oring also because with it, the rotor wasn't in magnetically centered in the can.

When i took the oring out and put the motor back together to re-shim, it spun so much more free then with the oring in.

errr.... anyone know if I can get just the endbell for a Money?
Had a really big crash (it also split the chassis, but not my fault) the other weekend, and have just found that it bent the negative nut and brush tube Would rather not have to buy another complete motor... but if thats the case, so be it.

Thanks in advance
Ed

How did Bobby Flack gear the CP 19 in the IIC (rollout) - what springs and what brushes? Any other hints to get this motor to run faster?

Silver springs, infinity brushes, roll it out around 32mm, HOLD ON TO YOUR A$$!!!!
This motor is as fast or faster than any Komodo out there and you don't have to tear it apart every run
