Dan,

Is there a reason the orders in this weekend? Is that just if you want a motor right away, or are these going to be some sort of limited run item?

Also, are these tuned Monsters, or do you guys wrap your own armature? Just curious.

Thanks,
Chuck

P.S. Just got some of your packs from the Speedtech sale. Can't wait to get them together and try 'em out!

hey Dan I am sure glad you wipped all my drool off of those motors after I left today. I felt like Homer Simpson looking at donuts

Guys these Motors are top notch stuff The ones you see made fukuyamas spec for a motor. cream of the crop. the ones that dont make do not get put on the for sale self for you racers. They just get sent away

Dans quality control is very tough and the performance of his products shows it

Had an odd experience with my cells today.
I've been racing them so far in stock indoors and use them just once a night and as soon as they come off the track I discharge them at 20amps to 5.4v (although recently 6v since my charger reset itself and I'm too lazy to change the setting ) I always get about 1900 out of the cells after a five minute race.
Today was my first outdoor race of the season, Scottish outdoors series first round, I'm running 19spec. I discharged them after the race and let them cool for atleast 1.5hours before recharging for later runs. The first pack I charged for a second time only took about 3200 which I though was odd but would easily last me a race so I just ran them. Then the second set I recharged which was for my final only took around 2400. The cells were warm like a normal peak and I had enough time to repeak them so I did, and it peaked like usual, just taking an extra 250ish. I didn't actualy get to run the final thanks to a cvd pin coming out (after qualifying 5th in the A) So I discharged the whole pack and got about 3450 out of them, like I should.

So it appears that the cells are dropping below 6v very quickly when I put them on discharge after a race (unfortunatly I didn't note the capacity taken out after each race, but I think it was only a couple hundred in each case) This has never happened when running stock indoors.
I equalise before the first charge, down to 0.6v then charge at 6 amps, 40mv delta on my Pro-Trak charger and always gives an input of 4200-4300.
Any ideas what may be causing it to drop voltage so quick on the discharge?

Change to 5.4V

NiMH cells have a VERY flat discharge curve.
Meaning once they get close to the 5.4V they drop very fast.

In my radio if they start beeping I need to pull off, however with NiCD's I can run a complete race with beeping...
Granted the guys next to me don't like it...

Tres is right. Go to 5.4 volts on the discharge. Also, you may want to only equalize down to .9v not .6v. You may be over discharging the cells causing some long term damage to them.

Dan- i think i will be ready to rock for oklahoma thanks a ton
Stephen - That race was nuts man.. You had a good run. I was hoping you'd catch Brian a little earlier to see what would happen
