I have seen a few shut down from heat before. I dont know if its really a thermal thing or just a bug with the few that I saw shut down. But they have shut down.....and if you have a specktrum it seems to happen more often.

Well Ladies, DC had a good weekend of racing. Brian Jucha took the win in mod TC by an entire lap over the competition at the Summer Sizzler (hosted by Trackside Hobbies)….. While at another venue Toastie TQ’ed and won the 19-turn class at the Beat The Heat race in Memphis Tennessee, using our XXX Outlaw 19 motor.

Other notable performances were:

*Andrew Ellis qualified 3rd and finished 3rd in mod TC at the Summer Sizzler
* DC Team Driver Brian Stanton took 2nd in the 19-turn class at the “Beat The Heat” race
*1st through 5th A-main qualifiers in the 19 turn class @ the “Beat The Heat” race were using our XXX Outlaw 19’s to power their rides . Not to mention there was 3 heat of 19 turn

I'm guessing that this question has been asked an answered in this thread but I am going to ask it anyhow. I just purchased a D.C. 9X2 and would like to know the optimal timing for this motor. Any help would be appreciated.

Well....... depends.

Asphalt High Temp: 12 to 15 deg.
Asphalt Cool Temp: 15 to 20 deg.
Carpet: 15 to 20 deg.

Just my opinion though.

Thanks for the input. Why would you time the motor higher for carpet vs asphalt? Wouldn't you want the torque for the tighter carpet tracks and the rpm for the open asphalt tracks?

jjmudd,

More timing = more rip (and power). For carpet you need the rip off the corner. For asphalt tracks you usually can run less timing and gear for the speed because you don't need as much neck-snapping acceleration that Curtis' motors have when timed higher.

Hey Brian,
I don't want to sound like a duffus, but I always thought that the lower the timing the more torque a motor made at the expense of rpm and vice versa for a motor timed high?
