Motor City Online....orginally part of the Need For Speed series of games, but when they decided to move it to only online they ditched the Need for Speed name from the title....and then costs ran high, so the EA suits decided to do everything possible to make the game fail quickly so they could get it wrote off.....it lasted longer than they thought it would though....personally I hope they all get the clap for shutting down the greatest racing game ever.

I was a wheel at the game too....much better than I am at driving RC cars!

Well... I had a chance to run a team br00d hand wound 19t arm this weekend. Actually, I had the local hot shoe run it for me. He was already running Reedy QM 19t motors so it was an easy swap in for him.

The armature I had Eddie build for me was as follows
19t big comm:
18# wire
Speed groove in the stacks
Polished stacks
PT devices installed

I arrived in a very nice reusable armature tube. The stack was polished to a shine and the arm was tagged "br00d19". I did have to dig a bit of the silver blaze out from between one of the stacks... because I'm anal and not because it was causing a problem. Other than that minor grip, it looked very nice. The wraps were very clean and after starting at them for 5 minutes I could not see a single difference between the wrap positions of all three poles. All three looked like the wires were in the exact same positions for the wraps that I could see.

I used an existing 19t REEDY QM can and set it up as follows:
Reedy 767 brushes with 3/32 hole in both brushes
Purple + and Red - trinity springs (no tweaking)
Centered the arm
Aligned the hoods strait across (no individual alignment)
Lubed the bearings
Broke the brushes in at 2v which was 4x200 second cycles
Skimmed the comm after break-in
Lubed the bearings
Final 30 second 2v brush break-in

The guy that ran it was qualified 2nd after the first 2 qualifiers. He ran my motor in the 3rd qualifier. He took the TQ and reset the TQ by almost a full lap. He put my motor in with the exact same gearing as his Reed 19t QM motor.

Some of his comments about the motor with a Team br00d comm in it:
"I had to stop and calm down after the first time down the straightaway. That thing was scary fast"
"It had a $&!+ load of punch."
"It didn't fade at the end of the race"
"So where can I get one of those"
"Is it legal" - In my case Yes... but barely. I didn't let him run it in the Main :-)

I watched how his run went with my motor. He was getting up to speed FAST. I'd say maybe 20 feet to get up to full speed. So the motor had a lot more to give. The motor did get hot but as we all know Reedy QM 19t motors get HOT when you run them right. When I say hot I mean 160-180. That temp. is nothing amazing but still pretty hot. I usually just try to stay under 200 with my Reedy QM motors. After one run the comm looked pretty good. Only some minor scoring the left of each slot and a slight discoloration just above the brush track.

At the end of the day I'd have to say this was the fastest 19t motor I have seen on our track. That is just my opinion. If he had geared it up a couple teeth it would have been much faster as it had the torque to do so. However, I think I'd only get one or two good runs at that point without having to rebuild due to the extra heat it would generate.

I am VERY happy with this armature.

NOTE: It is worth noting however that this particular armature would not be legal at many tracks. PT devices may not be accepted at your track. The RPM groove should be OK but ask your track director to be sure. Hand wounds should also be ok but ask your track director. The Reedy QM 19t replacement arm is a Hand wound armature if you didn't know already. The 18# is most likely not legal at most tracks. That being said you can always run all that by your track director. If your track director is OK with these “features”, then this is a great armature and extremely fast.

NOTE ALSO: PT devices are voltage specific so you will have to get the armature designed for the number of cells you plan to race. 4-cell arms use different PT devices than 6-cell arms do.

Just a one note....thats 18.5 guage,, not 18....We wound 18 guage, but something was causing them to short out, possibly the RPM groove, were still not sure.

Glad you like the arm...

Good Results

ChadK and I were running Br00d 19T on 1/12th this past Sat. He TQ'ed and I ended up 2nd in the Main. Our cars had the most hp....granted my comm is a bit small.

EddieO, did you get my check in the mail for the motors order?

Dom

The 19 turn motor I recieved from Eddie was also the fastest I had run as well. I was using a motor with adjustable timing, I had it turned to 36 degrees and it had great power, I switched to Eddie's Reedy QM and was actually faster even with the locked timing at 24. It was very impressive, but then again so are the rest of the Br00d motors I have gotten.

I will second what Dom said. Team Br00d motors had the most HP all day. Only thing I saw wrong with that is I didnt have one.

Good job Dom and Chad.

And more amazingly... I ran the motor for 6 straight runs w/o even cleaning the brush or comm with a comm stick. There was a tiny bit of fading in the Main, but then that was my fastest run as well. Took it about last night, it needs to be trued, but probably a decent light skim will do the trick.
