just wondering what your thoughts are on zapping timing into stock motors. positive and negative feedback is welcome. i would like to experiment with this just to get a better understanding of the concept, can you explain how would you do this? i have a team 1 zapper. thanx for the time

all the best

It doesn't work very well....

When you do it, the motor will look killer on the dyno, but the motor will fade badly....just ask the guys who tried it at the Reedy Race. The armature will continue to over saturate the magnets, thus causing them to discharge.

It might work in 4 cell however......there is a strange belief that zapping the magnets ahead is illegal....it's not according to the rule book.

Very good weekend for Team Br00d. I was able to get top qualifier, and after a bad wreck I managed to make my way up to finish second place.

JamesCam-I run for Eddie in the Dallas/Ft Worth area.If you need any help please just ask.

For the Xray and Hpi snag a Monster and a Roar like stated.The Roar will be a lil more picky on gearing but if the track is BIG at TNT and you nail the gearing then it should be nice.

T4-P2k2 at SRH
B4-Monster or P2k2.The monster will have a lil more rpm and will be fine at a track like SRH.For mike's or SRH on the tighter layouts it's P2k2.

You wouldnt wanna run Roar's in offroad unless the track was huge,very flowing and no big or torque needing jumps.

See you at the races.
Les

Les: This is Nick Kenning from Hutch. With the track being that high of bite, do you think a monster or p2k2 would run better in a buggy? I ran a monster but I'm thinking that the torque of the p2k2 may suite that surface better...just looking for your opinion

I ran my cobalts at about 5-7 degress of timing (can't really get the can lower than that) and they come with XXX brushes and I have found that the motors run better if you narrow the brushes slightly.
