Sounds like you should have geared it down one tooth from where you were when you geared up two teeth the second time.... So 3 teeth up from the original monster gearing.
But I don't know. I haven't played with one yet.

Ditto, 3 teeth up from the monster should be good. I'm running 4 teeth up on a track with four straights and five corners.

Default Cost to Maintain

If I were to purchase a CO27 Blueprinted Motor

1. How many 1/10 TC asphalt runs before I notice fall off in performance?
2. What would you charge if I mailed it in to restore the performance?

I know their are variables that prevent an exact answer.

Default Yes, and no

I have an old Cobra "stock" lathe that I have used (I put the arm in a can/endbell with a bearing) which is adequate for all my practice/motors I am just non-confident in using it for my one or two best motors.
I have a low end motor tester that allows testing under load for volts or amps.
I was thinking about buying two motors and after 8 runs mailing one off to be cut and checked but I am not sure if that is practical.

also, I am not a good enough driver so that another 1000 rpm is going to make the difference.

Jonah, if you are running at a track, there will be someone there who will help you with a cut, most LHS have a lathe and will cut it for you for a small charge.

You can pick up a used cobra/twister/trinity lathe in the for sale section on here for under $90.

I would buy one motor (sorry eddie) and put the rest towards a lathe.

After 6-10 times of shipping it, you would have paid for a lathe.

Like Andy said, it is a good idea to just buy a used lathe with a diamond bit for under $100. You can even try selling your stock lathe for a couple bucks to help fund it. The lathe is something you will always need, it is a great investment.

From what I remember, can't you use the stock lathe on any motor? You just mount the whole motor on and not the arm??? I guess re-aligning the brush hoods could end up being a PITA though...

Long Sleeves are only available in Grey....

Imjonah, on team br00d labeled motors....we don't charge for the rebuild itself, just the parts (brushes, springs, etc)....so, around $5 plus shipping of $5....as for how many runs.....I dunno. I would say probably 5-6 before you see a huge drop off....it depends on a lot of variables to give an answer.

Berescoe, the capped arms are probably gonna be available sometime in april.....right now, we are just REALLY behind in orders (thanks for all the support!).....so we are trying to catch up before we go to nationals in two weeks....

Moparsrule, we have no timeline yet from trinity when the new 19t will be available....

Yj7, I would go with a ROAR stock for that appication......you got a motor of ours off ebay??

JanisK......the Pt is what a lot of the AE guys run in 1/12th scale....but the Ti works just as well. Chris Tosolini won 2005 snowbirds with a Ti in his Corally 1/12th Scale.....the Ti Worlds is NOT recommended for 1/12th scale.....you will dump and dump badly.

Paz, a new motor will always work better in my opinion.....but in general, for most racing, just replacing the arm should work fine.

Ramyrus, the ROAR is a heavy RPM motor.....it typically will need a smaller pinion than a monster.....adjust yoru gearing up or down though and see what is faster.....it could go either way. Stock motors are weird like that.

Ashto, some time in april probably....

Mush, 767, 4499 or fbrush will all work well......in touring car on carpet, we usually start at purple/red and work from there.....for 1/12th I always start at green/green.....


Sorry for the delay on the replies.....just been super busy!

Later EddieO
