Default Motor Choice

Hi

I have a Team 1 stock motor in my Tc3. I look on the team1rc web site and it just shows the motor with no stats. Can some one give me some stats on this motor?

Also can that someone recomend some other stock motors? Ones (if possible) that have better tourque or top end speed?


thanks

Well i luckly have one of these motors. The motor I have has alot of RPM's. I think that motor is more used for open tracks just my opinion because my car never has the acceleration out of the turns.
Another great all around motor is Putnam. They have the best overall performance and thats one of the only motors ive ever used. It has alot of power, RPM's and touqe without having to much of one over the other.
If I were to get a motor i would get a Putnam. Great motor. What you really want to look for on a motor is one that has good power, efficientcy.(if i left one out sorry). You can have as much RPM's and your motor doesnt have and efficientcy to it and its just a waist for the rpm's.
Motors can be complicated to understand, but with the right knowledge, understanding and if u look at the readings correctly about the motor you can choose out a good motor every time.

I hope this helps. If you need any more help just post here.

Thanks for the advice. Dose Putnam have a site I can visit?
Also as far as spur gear choices, with my current motor I only have a few spur gears to choose from without burning out the motor. I am guessing this is true with any motor I buy?


thanks again

the stock 72 tooth spur should be fine for most tracks. Now a important rule to remember when gearing a motor is the more RPM you have use a smaller pinion . that will give you more punch and make the motor top out sooner, when you have a motor with more torque use a bigger pinion and it will do the oppisite (sp)

you can log onto gearchart.com and print up a gear chart for yourself this chart is very useful when it comes to finding out your final drive when your at the track
