What kind of Rollout are people running with the Checkpoint for carpet? im like 27.5mm-28.5mm with a KD 19 turn. KD's are more of a rpm motor and CP19's more of a torque motor?

Yep. Depending on the track size/layout and your tire size (assuming foams), your rollout should be between 31.5mm and 33.5mm. Unless I'm running very large tires (60mm), I usually start off between 32.0mm and 32.5mm and then gear up from there.

Today at a high bite large track (several slow/tight corners as well as two sweepers) with 56.0mm tires, the optimum rollout was 33.2mm.

I'll be getting one of these motors in the next couple of weeks, and I plan to run a fan on the endbell using these (http://teammuchmore.com/product_info...roducts_id=424) to mount it. I'm just not sure whether the fan is 25mm or 30mm (it looks like a 25mm MM fan in the pic, but just don't what to get the wrong one). Anyone have any idea what size fan I will need.

Thanks
Ben

Thats a wide open question that will receive many different answers, based on each drivers 'favorite' ESC.

Mine is the Keyence Rapida Pro. Expensive, but worth it if your a mid to top level driver.

you probably can do that with any esc out there

I think Keyence is by far one of the best esc's out there

My endbell warped, is that possible from heating up the tabs soldering? I have my skottchy diode on the motor and it was being a pita to get off, I have the motor geared to 31ish rollout and it comes off the track around 150 so I don't think that's enough to warp it.

I don't think 150F would be enough to warp the end bell, but keeping a soldering iron on there will because its way hotter than 150F.

Actually I just took it apart, somehow I bent the timing ring, maybe tightened it with the tab not in the slot? I bent it back and it sits flush again.

Anyone know how long the infinity brushes are new?

Try not to over tighten the end bell, once you feel that it doesn't move, don't go any further or your bending the timing ring.

Are people soldering on an extra capacitor between the + and - side, or are the two factory mounted capcitors enough?
