Let me know..


Big tracks when the temp of the track is 130-140 6.75 to 7.2

Small tracks when the temp is hot 7.2-7.8

Night racing is different....
It's not that I need help gearing for the track, its more a general question on the Mako .. should I gear the same as a stock Monster or does it run with higher RPM or has it more bottom or .. you get my point ..

Thanks anyway

The mako is the same thing as a monster stock. it is the same motor base just tuned by Fukuyama racing. So yes gear it like a monster stock. 1 or 2 teeth may change depending on what springs and brushes are on the motor, and the outside temp.

Hi,

Try to gear it towards RPM since the spinup should be quick. Also, dropping a teeth or two would work as well. Depening on the track, if its a tighter track, try a gear ratio of 7.5 first, and go from there. Good luck and if you still encounter problems, please call us. We will take care of our customers .

Dan
On your website concerning charging of batts is the figure given .05(50mv) is that voltage pack or volts per cell?
Cause .05 cutoff equate to (roughly).25volt pack
Just bear with me on this one & don`t laugh
Eagle charger .05 cutoff per cell is equal to .24mvp If you was to use your 50mv that will be close to .10 mvc is this right.

Reason
there are a couple off racers over here in the good old uk that have your batts,i feel they are over charging the batts because they have there pulsars cutoff on .50mvp.
Also for my world off knowledge so i know for the future

I'm not Dan but the 50mv cutoff is accross the pack, not per cell. I set my LRP puslar between 45 and 55mv cutoff depending on the amb. temp. The colder it is the higher I go to get the cells to warm up. There are a lot of people who charge thermally. Get the cells to about 130-140F and you should be good. I'm still a little on the cautious side about getting the cells too hot and usually peak around 130F.

jkerr
So if you use .50mvp that equates to .9mvc yes? (est)
I was lead to believe that .24mvp =.05 (est) was ample
Does this mean i could be under charging my cells?

50mvp/6cells=8.33mvc. So yes, you're close with that. How hot are your cells getting? If they're less than 120F your not getting everything you can out of them. I'd check the temp at what you're charging at now and if it's too low, just bump it up on the next charge and check it. Do this until you get the cells around the 130F mark and then fine tune from there. Also, make sure you're not charging with the cells on a fan. This can cause the cells to either false peak or mis the peak all together and overcharge them. Don't cool them on a fan either. Always let the cells get naturally warm and naturally cool off.

jkerr
would you use that charging guide on fuku website on all chargers?

Or would you use the chargers guide to charge your cells?

Or would you use your experience to charge your cells?

This is info gathering for future customers questions if they arise
