JIm D.
What winds did you order? what cells do oyu have?

Dead shorted packs can be the ticket if you know how to set up a mod motor and or have a smooth finger.

I recently just did some tests with sample IB3800 pack, here is what I found:

I took a new pack and cycled it on my GFX.

Runtime was [email protected] 35 amps ( this was a low runtime pack to start with) with 6.99 voltage ( 5.40V)

After dead shorting: ( 3 weeks)

Runtime is now 343 and voltage is up to 7.08 ( again 5.40V)

If you take that 343, that is a decent time to be playing with in Mod. depending on your track and your finger you might just have a killer mod set up and you do not even know it.

Remember- last years racing ( or even ROAR this year) was (is) all done on the GP 3300. A good GP pack was in the 345-370 range ( again @ 35 amps)

Most of our team ( SMC) that run a 10 turn limit or our Euro drivers (12 turn limit) dead short their packs.

I don't know what #'s you have or started with but I would encourage you to find a GFX and give them a cycle to see how much runtime has been dropped from DS'ing the pack.

I recently just won a large carpet race ( foam, DC 9x1 UL) with a IB 3600 pack that I was messing with. runtime on that pack was down in the low 300 range LOL...that runtime is pushing it, but was still possible to race hard and win.

I am not telling you to do the above, but just think it out and see what you have before you go out for no reason. If you ordered 7 turn UL's and run on a long high bite track.. then I would be ordering new packs...


Hope this helps

steven, I think I accidently got your package in the mail. Motors ran great thanks for buying them for me. LOL

Hope things are going well in Tulsa! I am working on my Sedan and we should have our carpet track revived soon. Also I'm putting together a flyer for the vegas warmup race in hutch. I'll give you a holler when it's finalized in case you want some carpet time

The XXX-Compound brushes are my favorite brush for the Ti3's, these come standard on every motor & they work awesome Mad HP the entire run...

Default Trinity Cobalt 8x1 vs. Reedy Ti Worlds Edition 8x2

Hi Curtis,
I have a question regarding the performance of these 2 motors (Trinity Cobalt 8x1 vs. Reedy Ti Worlds Edition 8x2). I have both of them and ran them in our mod race last Saturday. I noticed that the Reedy had more rip overall versus the cobalt. Is this because of the brush compound that the cobalt has? I used a reedy actron brush on the Ti Worlds. I have ran these 2 motors on two different tracks, a technical and a highspeed track, the reedy was more powerful.

If I change the cobalt's OEM armature to the new DC UL arms 8x1 with your xxx narrowed face brushes, will I see a more powerful cobalt motor over the Ti worlds?

Btw, I already have the new DC Ti3 w UL arms, I haven't tested it though. But from what I have been reading so far, it got tons of rip of the corners

Thanks for your time.

Hi Joe,

The Reedy Ti worlds (or Ti2) is a good torquey little motor, really good bottom end rip, great for small tracks. The inherit design of the motor is the reason it produces more torque than the Cobalt.

If you haven't already done so, changing the brushes to a narrowed face brush will help with bottom end rip on the Cobalt. And yes, changing the stock OEM armature out to one of our will defiantly help.... Or you could just get another Ti3 Let me know what you think of the motor....

Curtis,

Talking DC Motorsports Forum

Well ladies, if official. We now have our very own DC Motorsports Forum in the Manufactures Area. Over the next few weeks we would like your advice as to which discussion and help topics would best suit the needs of today’s racers. We plan to use this advice to start various discussion topics so that a large database of useful information is available for our R/C Tech patrons.

Meanwhile this thread will remain open for the time being to chitchat about general racing stuff and to also provide assistance for those who need guidance… Looking forward to building a bigger and brighter future with you all.
