I guess the hi reving motors I have are used up and will rev but not produce torque to speak of?
RPM is nothing if you can't get to em huh.
Sounds like you need to "freshen" the magnets.

Once the magnets are "gone", they're "gone". Zap 'em till San Diego has a power black out and they still won't be much good. Old abused motors just never seem to make it back. New abused motors won't either.

I've buried a couple motors at the beach at San Onofre for a nuclear magnet zapping. Hope the armatures hold up and hope there are no Geiger counters in tech.

Just thought I'd post this for anyone who may be interested. I only had one new CS brushed motor to work with and found it took 12 minutes @2v to seat the brushes via water dipping. Looks like this will turn out to be a nice little motor w/out any magic.

So for those worried about motors it looks like a 12 min water dip and a little bit of running will give a good motor. Remember now, this is just for the CS brushed motors and not for the older soft brush types that only take ONE minute.

Default FF03 racers

For the Aliso Viejo FF03 racers, Sean has added FF03 class to the upcoming TQ Carpet racing series starting Sunday 22-May. Class allows 21.5 brushless or silver can motors. I am going to run mine as it comes off the Tamiya track. And, they latest layout is fast with some good passing lanes.

Grandpa is the expert in that area. Just make sure the carton is empty.

Questions?? Silly Question

I am attempting to get ready for my first TCS race. I am getting a new silver can for the race. What is the best way to break it in so that I don't over-prep it?

Thanks,

Tommy
