Well, first outing with the 19t v2 last night. Car felt very flat in practice and wasnt very fast. Swapped batteres, tightened diff and slipper. Took it out for the first heat and I had to stop for interference but motor felt decent. 2nd heat I did great hitting 13laps and the motor felt alot punchier for a full run. 3rd heat I got in alot of knocks but it felt very fast and on the edge. The final, I qualified 3rd in the B, I set the car up as well as possible and took it out. I started off lke a shot, the mtoor powered me ahead and past the leader as everyone got caught behind me, I led for 3 minutes before being wiped out by someone I was lapping . I tried gaining the leader but he took too big a chunk out of me from the crash, I gained on him but couldnt ndo it finishing 2nd. I check my lap times and I had gone a lap further and my fastest lap was a second quicker, the motor was very punchy and extremely smooth in the straights, thanks guys Ill be testing it further next week at a big local race meet!

I bought a TeamBr00d 7x1 Cobalt 2.
The setup I used is the one it came with (purple springs, xxx brush). I used 8 degree timing and 9.0 FDR with rubber tires (indoor carpet). The motor was flat (brand new matcehd SMC IB 4200 SHV cells) and it was very hot after every run (210-220) tried gear lower, higher no change in temperature. After the 4th run it died. I know that it was probably a great motor but I don't have the knowledge needed to run it on its peak. Could you share some ideas I have to consider when running low turn mod?
I've seen Mike Blackstock running the Trinity Shock which is similar to the Cobalt 2. He used silver (extra hard springs) I guess it is to eliminate brush bouncing... would this be helpful with my motor? What springs, timing and roll-out do you recommend for the 7x1 C2?

Is Billy Easton still running for Brood? I'm looking for some of his car setups and can't seem to find him on the net lately. Maybe someone knows where I can find him...

what do you mean the motor "died?" like it just needs a cut?

the main disadvantge to the trinity teardowns is the need to skim cut the comm every run. this is due to the XXX compound brushes, long brush life/hard on the comm.

i would run at least 12 deg. of timing.

blackstock may have used the silver springs, but i know he runs foam tires 99% of the time too.

i really have no suggestion on gearing for rubber tire mod on carpet, i have not run it.

what are yer tracks dimensions

Default 19 Turn Motors

Hi Peter and Garrett,

I run 19 Turn in 1/12th Scale on Carpet. Track is about 75'X36' and I will say, semi-technical, depending on how we set it up. What would be your recomondation for a 19 Turn motor? I have one of your Komodo's, tuned for Touring Car and love it.

Thanks guys,

Brent
