Just thanking my sponsors.

I forgot to mention that I ran the 'ol trusty FK05 in the 19t qualifiers where the fast lap was set though.

have any of you had rather low dyno readings on a fantom dyno compaired to a robi? Or do you all just run them on the track? I recieved 2 brood 19t and both dyno poorly on a fantom ( but i understand there is a difference from 5volt dynos and a 7.2 volt dyno ). I havnt run them on the track yet nor have i dynoed them on a robi.

I use both a Fantom and CE, and recieve the robi results from Brood. What brand motor did you use and what were the Fantom numbers? It would also help if you gave the Fantom software platform/version (Windows or DOS) and as much detail as possible from the read-out.

Default IB3800 and stock racing

I just starting using the IB3800 this weekend. Also I have read most of the posts on how to care and maintain them. But it seems the recommendations were for maintaining or increasing run time. Since I am only racing stock is there any difference in the care and maintainance to maintain or increase voltage instead of runtime?

I just purchased a new Brood Atlas 19 turn motor and I was wondering what to do with this motor to make it fast. Do you leave it as it comes from the company or is their another spring combo to use to get more out of it? What about brushes I ordered 767's from Brood are these good brushes to use in this motor or is there something else? Last can somebody give me a final gear ratio to run with this motor that can put me in the ball park? Track size is 65x40.

Thanks Bazzer

Just busting on you Guy. I'll back you up on the batteries, though. They hit hard.

I would run 767s or 4499s with purple/purple or purple/red springs. As far has gearing goes it will be 2-3 teeth higher then you would run a C2 19T.

I have a brood quad mag and a brood C2. On a Fantom dyno ( 1 was a dos version and 1 was a windows version ) the quad mag dyno'd at 73 watts and 20k rpm, the C2 dyno'd 82 watts at 23k rpm. The numbers varied 1-2 watts between the 2 dynos. The robi numbers that came with the motors showed 155watts on the quad at 30k rpm and 166 watts @ 33k rpm on the C2. They are both Blue Printed Team Brood motors, straight out of the package. The motors i build ( which arnt the greatest ) dyno in average of 90-94 watts at 22k ( fantom dyno and a C2 can ). Most of the guys i race with have 100 watts or more on varied motor styles ( i have seen a couple of quad mags at 105watts and C2's at around 110 ).

When I had my Fantom, my best motor read 71 watts and my worst motor read 89 watts. But on the track, with the right gearing, the 71watt motor was blazing, and the 89watt motor was just decent.

I think Brian and Duane were getting low 90's on their C2's before their Fantom died.

I bet you're talking about Joey M's motors . That guy can build some monster motors.

Bazzer- the motors come with 767 and work just fine.I am running the blue Atlas can(not the newest one) and I run it with 767 and purple springs.I also filed down the edges of the brushes this gives the motor a little more torque which it looks like what you will need for a track that size. I woul start your rollout at about 30-31 to start. Hope this gets you in the ballpark!

On both software versions, the best C2's dyno'd around 100+ watts with 103 being the best ever. The best RPM came in at 22k+. I consider anything over 98 watts and 20k rpm on the dyno to be adequate for a club race. But I'm not an expert on the dyno either.

Correction, the best C2 rpm came in at 23,800 with 103 watts.
