Scott said when you do that to a motor, we have

noticed that they get hot VERY quickly. Faster than

a normal progression.

David, I'd charge Billy "rent" for that motor!

I did a little testing on this and the motor does seem to heat up faster , when you cool them down, than if they are run at ambient temperature. One old motor guy use to swear by dry ice. Talk about cold Dry ice is frozen carbon dioxide. A block of dry ice has a surface temperature of -109.3 degrees Fahrenheit (-78.5 degrees C).

Water really won't hurt one of these motors. One of the old school tricks to break in brushes was to submerge the motor in water and run it untill the water turned color and wa la, your brushes are broke in.

Yeah, he's holding all my offroad stuff while I try to decide if I want to make a fool out of myself on foam tires again.

I knew about the water diping to break in brushes. (I have done it! )but running your bushings or bearings with water in them usually not a great way to go. The water would probably displace what oil you had in there when if freezes. I guess that was my point with that comment

Yeah, some of those old tricks are a little funny. That was back before we had serrated brushes too. Yep, water in bearings is not a good thing.

For the benefit of the Banzai team I am probably the newest, oldest and the worst on road driver Australia has yet produced. I race? in Townsville, Queensland.
Daniel has just sent me a Banzai motor (hasn't arrived yet) that he says will be an improvement on my current motor. I am however a bit dissapointed that he says owning a Banzai wont make me a world champ overnight
If the service I recieved from Daniel is indicatative of what I can expect from the rest of Team Banzai I will be a very long term customer indeed.

Using that 'cooler' for the motor has cracked a magnet on my stuff. Last year just after Cactus.



We also use to break in 'old skool' motors in anti freeze, liquid freon.... you name it...we tried it... LOVE the allen key and crescent wrench trick the most though. The ONLY way to make the mabuchi scream

Puddle, you have an email!

Terry, welcome! We may have to send you some

Flyin' Fossil stickers with the next package!

Scott is an "Old Dude" too and he's got his, but

you gotta be over 40 to get them!!

If we can help you in any way, just ask. Daniel

has been a real pleasure to work with!

Judi

Thanks for the welcome.
I would like to say I was too young for the stickers but I would be lying Lets just say I was here just before the sixties. Not woodstock material but I remember watching the first moonwalk at school. (And not the Michael Jackson one). Shame I started this rc stuff so late (this year), it is pretty good. Not relaxing mind you, at least not when you get in the road of all the other racers. I now have the nickname of skid-lid.
I may not be good at driving but when others see how much faster I can crash with one of your motors i am sure there will be more sales for you at my club.

Ash, I don't care how you sell stuff for Puddle,

if it's on your lid-----quicker----- that's fine with me!

Puddle informed me that the Koala bear I asked for will NOT

be coming my way. He says they're nasty and not cute

and cuddly and only good for BBQ! Sounds like he's been

talking to Scott who won't allow me around Camels because

he says they're nasty, smell and spit!!!!!!!!!!! So, at

this point I'm left with no pets!

OK guys, I need you all to root for my Cleveland Indians today!!

They play the Yankees, one of the dreaded, hated teams on my

list!!!
