Default T-Bang Hobby Technology - Vancouver, Canada

Hey Guys,

Just wanted to start up a thread for our new motor tuning company up here in Vancouver, Canada. We are working hard in our motor lab as we speak to produce our first production runs of tuned Stock and 19T motors.

The T-Bang philosophy is to try to be scientific about things. We use in-car data collection, track testing, and dyno tuning to optimize the performance of our motors for our racers. We also plan to publish many of our trials and tests on the company web-site so that you can validate our data and learn more about motor tuning as well.

Initial product lists and pricing are available on our site - on-line ordering and support is in the works and will be rolled out ASAP.

Thanks a bunch to the guys from down south that have helped us to get our product lines in place. We really appreciate the support and knowledge that you have shared with us, and we hope to keep a spirit of cooperation and partnership with all other tuners out there.

Thanks for the kind words Chris. Much appreciated! This has definitely been a lot of work and a lot of stuff to learn so far, but I'm really digging it.

My dynos have had a lot of miles put on them in the past few weeks...... the slave motor on my turbodyno is begging for mercy.

Here's a shot from the T-Bang "assembly line" last night. Most of this batch of beauties got shipped out for evaluation over in the UK!

Hey Roy!

Long time no see man. Thanks for the support!

Are you getting ready for the TCS? I'll be out there on May for GT2. Unfortunately, I haven't made a T-Bang mabuchi yet.....

Yeap! I'm all set.

Come to think of it, ever since I started with r/c, I don't think I ever used the silver can or black sport tuned motors so I'm not really sure how to "use" it

I'm hoping to make it to the April 28 big race

Hey Trent,

Don't you have any 3700 race packs? Need them for the TCS.

Thanks,
Roy

Hey Roy,

Unfortunately, I've only got IB3800's now. A bunch of smoking hot packs too - 1.20v+/400+sec, so they would have some serious kick. Does the TCS only allow 3700's maximum?

If so, I would be happy to get those for you - they're just not part of my normal inventory. Our matcher is pretty strong on the IB cells, so that's what I have been stocking. PM me with how many packs/what voltages you want/etc. and I will get a quote back to you ASAP.

Default CO-27's and K-19's on the way!

Some good news - new motors should be here next week! Pre-tests by some of the tuners in the USA are showing the K-19 to be the fastest 19t platform so far..... should be an exciting summer.

Can you tell me if your batteries will give me good run time? My 1400mah stick packs only give me 3 minutes of run time.

LOL. Who is that masked man asking questions of battery capacity?

Why yes. You will certainly get additional run time from a 3800 mah pack. Approximately 2.7 times as much run time!

Thanks for the props Dwayne! I'm really glad that they did the trick. They have been very strong for me and the other guys out on the coast this season as well.

As always, it takes a great driver to make a product look good, so I appreciate that you gave them a shot out there at the race, and I'm really glad that they were in there with you to the finals!

I'll be in touch about getting samples of the other products out for you to run.....

Default Huge Run This Week!

Hey Gang,

Just wanted to let everyone know that the T-Bang Extreme Stock - Type C (CO27 based) and the T-Bang Extreme 19 - Type K (K19 based) are entering production this week. Motors will all be here by the end of the week and I'm going to get a big tuning run under way immediately.

Give me a heads up if you want motors from this run - I'll get them out ASAP to everyone that has been holding back and waiting for the goodies!

Thanks to everyone for their support! The interest from the Canadian RC community has been awesome so far, and the goods will soon be ready to start shipping out!!
