Gearing & timing sounds good. I'd perfer to see you running a slightly harder spring than the std firm. Maybe MR032 4.3 N/mm (8 coil)....


Curt,
Bugger, i did the same to a 7x1 last weekend, i threw the arm away cause i thought it was trashed, should have taken a pic. Mine was only 3 runs old.

the usual cause of this from what i've seen is overtiming the motor - i ran an 8x2 @ 24deg on a mid sized track and had the same thing happen.

the motor still works fine, i just go gentle with it, clubdays, 12th scale etc.

mine was ~5 runs old when it happened too, still going strong after a few months in the 12th scale though

I haven't had to run any motor Curtis has sent me at over 12 degress of timing. I take that back....I ran my 8x1 at 15 once but 12 is my standard.

i usually run 8s on mid-sized tracks at around 18 deg, up to 24deg on small tracks (read: tennis court size)
7 turns live at 6deg, occasionally will do 12 on the small tracks though

Weylin Rose and myself than some 8x1's and 7x1's at 18-22 deg of timing in a Ti Can/endbell lol. We sure made some people look stupid on the straight . Especially the starts of the mains

I always run my 7 turns at no more than 18º, when I tried to dump with a 7x2 once I finally blew it up at 22º... but it was fast . Then for 8 turns I only crank them up to 22º, and 24º for 10 turns.

Yup. They sure are fast though... You should see the new ones Curtis wound up for me Checkpoint teardowns are downright sick.

That's an awful lot of timing. I don't think I'll be running that much timing for the Reedy

LOL yeah, it was a really small track and we were messing with stuff. I crank the timing on Ti's.... the Checkpoint teardowns only need about 12-15 deg though.

I'm considering to get couple of IB3800's for Stock Truck and I know you have Battery Assembly option but do you also include Deans connectors with the assembly or does it come with extra cost?

Hey Curtis,

I was just wondering how much life (how many runs) you would expect to get out of a set of the Checkpoint brushes, the 6 cell Infinitis?? I have managed to get a hold of one of the DC Checkpoints and its a beautiful thing.

I ran mine for a while.... I'm guessing 15 or so runs. They were still fine too, just getting a little short. Thats running them in a 7 turn as well.

Okay, fair enough. :-)

Another question then - did you make many changes in gearing for the different powerband? I've been using DC V2 motors and DC Ti3 motors for the past year or so and I expect the Checkpoint to feel quite a bit different in comparison to them because of that powerband change.
