Hey Todd,

What's your hotest motor you are putting out right now for touring car stock & 19turn. I'll be running on a small track...roughly 60'x40'.

I'm getting back into the racing after a year or so off, and am trying to catch back up. Thanks in advance for any advise you can offer.

weliin: Stock motor of choice is our Monster-based stock, and for 19 turn our C2-based motor...
Welcome back racing...

Freak: Yes, were still in business
We don't carry the P2K2's anymore, since their performance has been obsoleted by the latest technology of stock motors...
Feel free to give us a call at the shop if you have any questions...

Default stock motor

Todd, hi this weekend i was racing with the new IB3800 with the same motor i ran with the GP3700 and what what happen is the motor temp went to 210deg with the IB's what i want to know is a slot in the face of the brush is the same as a hole in the face? next what would you suggest for me to do if the motor is running too hot, i tried gearing down but the car was slow, but with the GP's i ran the same setup and gearing and no problem, any IDEA.

Ray: The reason for the increase in heat with IB3800's vs. GP 3700's in the increased voltage that the IB's have. The deliver about 1-2 tenths of a volt more for the first 200 seconds of the discharge curve.
Here's what you can do:
1) reduce your rollout to compensate for the increased RPM the additional voltage is making
2) reduce amp draw by reducing the overlap of the brush, (narrow the brush width) by trimming .010" off both the leading and trailing edges.

It is extremely important to monitor the motor's amp draw with the IB cells. If it is drawing more than 9 amps at 2 volts with a fan, that is too much.

Both a vertical slot and a cavity do similar things: reduce the mat'l at the center of the brush, increasing pressure applied to the leading and trailing edges.
