Default Estimated Motor Launch date

It looks like we set the launch date right after the new years. Motors are being tuned. Labels are getting ready to be printed. Bags and Headers are also being done right now. It will feature our secret NASA engineered mixtures to treat the brushes in and the motor will come with an extra set of brushes. We figure instead of using the motor tube, we'd rather go with an extra pair of bada$$ brushes and all motors will include a dyno readout. It'll be the sweetest Stock motor in the market come 2004.

both! since by changing the springs, you're able to control the output. FYI, Mo *did* TQ 3 round in a roll with his 1/12th. Rob *did* blew eveybody away at the prechamps and remain super consistant within the A mains during Clevelands.

Dan

P.S. we've found the perfect combo for this motor if you know what I mean.

The Fukuyamas were very good to me , no dumping !

Default charging...

hey guys.. i asked this question before.. but this thread is so long its kinda hard to find the answer to my question again.

i have my two packs of fukuyama batteries..

is there a difference (performance wise) between charging it at 30mv cutoff per pack..and charging it at 50mv cutoff per pack at 6amps?

i remember i had my yokomo MMS charger set to 50mv..and the batteries got hotter than when it was set to 30mv. both were set to charge at 6 amps.

thanks for the help!

you may see more runtime from the ones cut off @ 50mv. They got hotter because theyre getting more charge in them before it peaks.
