I ran my 10x1 cobalt and 10x1 Ti3 at the same ratio, and they were both fast. But the Ti3 was faster

Weylin-youve got a killer new track out there

Can you tell me if the Ti3 was more efficient than the Cobalt?

Yeah we do, I'll be ready for those Reedy race curbs next year .

I think the Ti3 was more effecient because I was able to run it 3 times with still lots of power, with the cobalt it fell off after 1 run. But the cobalt does have a sweet blue can... . Run time was super easy to make since we were running rubber tires and not foam so we couldn't hammer on the throttle after every corner. So I couldn't tell you which one made better runtime. If we run mod again I'll time how long the packs stay on the 30 amp discharger after each run to get an idea though.

Using thinner wire on mod arms allows for quicker acceleration out of corners, giving the motor a more responsive feel. Thin wire also reduces mid-range and top-end power and should only be used on tight tracks..... The opposite holds true for large wire....

what type of brush does the ti3 use? (laydown, p94, normal stand up) and does it use normal springs or does it take the "overhead" type springs?

Curtis, looking forward to racing with you next weekend. Do me a favor, get with EA and make sure you guys have a motor for me to run in mod. I have a few 12th scale mod motors but nothing like I'll need here. Toastie is coming and I believe Dumas sent him some nuts!!!

Oh, and I agree with Tbevofreak- thanks for the great info and insight here on your thread!

Hey BigDog: Don’t know if I’ll be attending this years Beat The Heat race in Memphis… Had my home AC unit go out on Thursday , decided to replace the unit with a “Top Of The Line” model. Anyways, needless to say I’m a little short on cash at the moment (but I'm staying nice and cool )… Let me know what turn your looking at running and I’ll get it sent to EA, drop me an email at [email protected] … Were always happy to help .

Curtis,
