I ran the Ti3 and Cobalt 10x1's UL arms today. It was way to much motor for rubber tire sedan on super low traction carpet, but we raced it anyway. The Ti3 was just better, the cobalt when I ran it might have had 1 run on it already, but the Ti3 was still more powerful on it's 3rd run. This was running XXX brushes in both motors, the cobalt brushes were narrowed to the width of standard standup brushes. The Ti3 was had more bottom end (100 times more than I needed) and better top end (I didn't even use full throttle down the back stretch) than the Cobalt, and even on it's 3rd run it was still plenty of motor. Although I wouldn't go 4 runs on it. When I ran the Cobalt it was noticably slower on its 2nd run. Im not saying the Cobalt is bad, its better than any of the Fantom motors I ran all winter, but the Ti3 is just better IMO.

Carlo: The more the merrier, have at it….

Chris: Dude you need to slow down brotha, stick with the 19 turns for a while or at least until you wear them out. Then it'll be time for a DC MOD

Weylin: Thanks for the update , now you need to figure out how to put the power to the ground

Yeah you just had to throw that out there didnt ya Korey .

We were trying to figure out how to put the power down but there didn't seem to be any solution, people did have some great ideas though... "lets spray this carpet with VHT!" . I wonder what would happen if we took the foam dust from people truing tires and sprinkled it in the low traction corners (all of them) and then pushed it in with the big push brooms , I think I'm on to something.

Curtis,

Don't worry, I don't plan on running mod until after Christmas, but I am jumping back into his quickly. I get carried away since I haven't had time for any kind of hobby these past couple years. Appreciate all the help too

Default Faster is better :D

I while ago I askes Curtis for advice on a 10T and a 12T arm. I wanted the arms with as much copper as he could fit besides those I also ordered a 19T Outlaw.
He told me he would wind a 10x3 and a 12x2 and that HCM arms are his specialty. (Both UL arms b.t.w.)

When I received the arms I saw he wasn't kidding, lots of wire and very nicely wound
Needless to say the arms deliverd insane amounts of power, even though the arms are very heavy due to the wire, they still spool up very fast.
(Faster than my 10x1 en 12x1 4mm arms in fact)

About the outlaw, that slot is just what a 19x1 needs
Compared to a non-slotted arm it has a tad less torque at the start but a lot more after the car starts rolling.
You can gear the Outlaw the same and a have lot more middle and top-end, or you could gear it down 1 tooth and have more power overall.
(A Robitronic dyno graph for those interested: http://vassago.demon.nl/4mm_vs_4mmslotted.jpg don't look at max power numbers, the yellow line is the only important thing in the graph )

We don't race 19T spec, just 19T 24 degrees of timing so any 19T arm is legal. The Outlaw is probably the fastest one you can get your hands on.
