i dont mind to run it if the main chassis is silver color !

it is just too ugly if the orange chassis gets scratches.

Definately. But on Saturday, I was breaking in my favorite motor, revved it up a bit, and threw a wind, so it's junk now... Gotta find a good armature for this weekend.

Yeah, it's the V brush motor, I think the new design is much better than the normal brush hoods.

i have never seen that motor before and i am interested to know how its efficiency on a motor dyno. do you have any dyno result of this motor comparing with the same arm spec normal motor?

I dont have a dyno... it was either that, or the automatic Hudy, and the Hudy is on it's way. The dyno is next

Sometimes the dyno is not reliable. Take an example, the Fantom 4-magnet motor gives good readings on the dyno. The efficiency goes up to about 90%. Very smooth, energy saving, attractive power band. However, when you put it on track, it's night and day different. Lack of punch, lack of engine brake, no matter how you gear. Yes, you have more run-time but for the 5-minute race, a well-prepared Yokomo machine-wound motor could beat it.

Nowadays, people do more lab tests than track ones.

Well despite what the lab tests say, I like the track performance on my Revolution
