but then the comm can`t see , just feels
Colin, we used to do that with them on our monsters (don't do it anymore cuz i don't run 27T anymore mind you). We found that once the serrations were gone the brushes would burn quick, so get longer lifetime out of them by re-serrating. With 19T serrations go in less than a run so it's no use.

Hi Eric,
Q for you.
How much difference would you see in a Machine and Handwound stock and 19t armatures, specifically in elec resistance?
I'm asking as a mate wants to check some motors (NOT EA's I wil add... Locally "tuned") at his club, as there have been suggestions of hand wound stocks.
As I understand there should be a noticeable difference betwern the electrical resistance of a hand wound and machine wound arm, simply due to the less wire used in tighter winding.
Any other methods you can think of to check legality of motors?

Cheers
Ed

TryHard : if the length of the wire is checked most hand wound motors will use less length of wire than a machine wound. Plus the windings will look uniform on all 3 poles instead of ... how can i put it...spuratic???

EDIT: stock motors have a roar stated minimum length of the wire on both normal stack and short stack armatures.

Ed,

You can measure the "resistance" of an arm...You need an LCR meter to check it. But you should be able to look at the arm and tell if its handwound or not...You can also look at the tabs where it attached to the comm and see if they look tampered with.

I just want to take a minute and welcome new Factory Pilot Drew Ellis to the EAM Team. Drew will continue to use Hurricane batteries to power his EAM motors. Im looking forward to the snowbirds and working with Drew for 2006.

EA sorry for the confusing emails, I've been working 12 shifts on nites and I haven't had much sleep in the last 8 days. I had one more Q, Do you have any of the new PRS gears that will fit the T2?
