Thanks Anthony! I saw that you signed up there on the system.

That actually reminded me - There is a newsletter system on there as well, so I will be using it to send out information about specials, upcoming events, and so forth, so if you guys want to receive spam from T-Bang, feel free to sign up even if you don't order something right away.

Tried that new motor tonight Trent seemed fast to me.
I actually had to gear up 2 teeth on my pinion, motor wasn't warm enough after my first run..
Quite happy so far.

Awesome. Glad to hear that it ran strong for you Clint. Just shipped out another one to one of your club-mates this morning. He'll be on your tail at the next race, I'm sure.

It's been tough so far - the combo of controller and the EPIC N60 motor haven't been playing nice together. I am just looking at different options on the controller front.

The motors have been lightning fast on the track, but the overall system is not stable enough for mainstream sales (yet). I never put the seal of approval on anything that isn't rock-solid or at the top of the performance spectrum.

Performance-wise, we're definitely there, but we need to work on reliability. I'm definitely committed to finding a solution though, so I will keep you guys posted as things progress. I may even start blogging a bit about it on the T-Bang site just so people know what we're up to R&D wise.

I started testing with the Mamba Max mated up to the prototype EPIC N60 based motor. My first outing didn't last too long at all, and ended with a bit of a meltdown. Followed up with Castle and they hooked me up with another ESC right away which was awesome. Great support over there for sure.

Next round, I hooked up my telemetry system to make sure I didn't overheat the system, and I had really great results except that the temps would spike eventually during a run. While the system was stable though, it was unbelievably fast. I was testing on a Nitro track and had no problem reeling in the gas cars on the straight and even more so through the infield. The N60 is also very light, so it shaved approx 100g off my overall weight which didn't hurt either.

I couldn't get the system to stabilize temp-wise though, so I am just waiting on some feedback from the Engineers over @ Castle. We'll see what's next very shortly.

As for Novak and LRP - I am very interested in the Novak products as well. They wouldn't be compatible with my current motors of choice as they are sensorless-only. However, I definitely would not rule out the possibility of seeing a tuned Novak system if that was something that they would allow.

The future is a bit uncertain right now in regard to what the motor tuners will do with brushless systems - we exist right now because companies like Trinity are very supportive of our industry and have a pretty broad program to support us. A lot of the companies making the brushless systems don't have programs and policies like Trinity yet, so it remains to be seen if we'll be able to build with those systems in the future. I'm certainly eager to do it, so I hope it all comes together as brushless matures.

Trent, I'm not sure if you are aware or not, but Neumotors are the best R/C brushless motors on the planet. Better than Hacker, better than Lehner, better than Plettenberg, and of course better than the Chinese and Novak offerings.

Yeah, that's the problem I've found, too ;> They don't make a motor for touring cars. Here's my attempt to change that, but I think it failed.

Where did you find out about them? Do you fly as well?
