Curtis....

Got back from the sweat shop earlier tonight. I tested 3 different arms and I think I got the gearings down on them pretty close to perfect. Give me a call tomorrow if you want as my dad and I will be at my place all day Dynoing and comparing.

Its all about Dyno numbers and Amp draw!!

Curtis, i have a coule of DC motors and have been happy with their performance, however the question has been asked of me about their conformation to IFMAR rules, as this is what we base the motor lists on in Australia, our rules call for no mixing of manufacturer components, as such can you please advise how your motors apply to this line of thinking?

Default Timing For 8x2 Flat Wire.

Hello everyone, I have a V2 Marc R 10x2 with original brushes (i think enduro). Well anyway i switched brushes to the 2-6 runs and i found it heated the com up really fast. This is what i found out.

I did a temp test on the motor when i first bought it was around 120 f after 5 min run.I raced the motor until i needed to replace the brushes so then i switched to the 2-6 burshes cut the com broke the brushes in and the motor temps went up to 160 f. Is this normal? What is a good temp range for Mod?
Timing is still at 18 degrees.

Now this is my main question, i bought a Epic 8x2 FW arm what timing should I adjust it to? What pinion should i go too? 22 tooth?

I run a TC3 with foams. Pinion is 24 and spur is 100. Rollout is 16.56.

The track has a 150 foot straight and a few technical sections. To sum it up its more of a nitro sedan track. big and wide open.


Thanks

Edward

Rollout is way too low, it would be overheating. I have not used a 10 in ages but i would gear an 8 V2, around 23mm, so i would guess a 10 would be in the 27-28 mm range. This is for a gas style track of course.

All the teardowns DC Motorsports uses are IFMAR approved worldwide.

The mixing of manufacturers refers to like......... an Orion can, with a Trinity Endbell and a Reedy Armature. I think......... Curtis will correct me if I'm wrong.

Yeah, undergeared for sure.........

if you are gearing the 8 turn at 24/100 then I would gear that up to about 30-33/100.

Really increase my rollout? Right now i am running 59 mm dia foams. So let me get this, increasing the rollout is like adding another tooth to my pinion? How much per mm is adding one tooth to my gear ratio. Or do i have it backwards?

Confusing but i will figure it out.

23 mm sounds about right for an 8 turn...and maybe 24.5 mm for a 10 turn.
