I was building some motors a while back, and came up with several very fast motors. I thought I was correct, but this confirms it. I had 2 motors that stood out above the rest, far and beyond. I even had another guy building motors, trying to build a faster motor that was "stock board" safe. We are running the old 3004 boards. I used the PN ball bearing motor can. An armature out of an X-Speed motor. Magnets out of an X-Mod stage 2 motor. I accidentally put the magnets in backwards. And it didnt click untill he asked me "Why are your motor wires backwards?" Hope this helps some guys out there build some faster motors.

we got the belt drive system for a bit of a test



so far its looking really good,ive run it in my AD mr-02 with stock r,you cant hear the car at all
it feels plenty different to a gear diff,kind of driving a turbo 1/1 car.
the actual diff action is very smooth,i havent had the chance to sand the bearing surfaces down just yet,all the adjustment is in the side nut making it ver easy to tune
more pics soon......

This is OT but

I see you are running a "normal" damper spring plate system there....
are you using all the parts post and both springs?

And have you mad ethe hole in the carbon piece from the motor pod bigger??

I also have the BDDS but it is not mounted I am waiting for replacement parts after craching my sinister in HURDA in Jonkoping last weekend...


EDIT:
you are even running the newest toplid!! Is it working can it hold the batteries in place? Even wiht a stronger motor like the chili??

and what if you run into things can it still hold the batteries in place?? And were did you get it? directly from TGR?
Thanks!

let us know how it turns out! If it turns out good maybe we all could get some pinions from you!?

Are you running without the rear springs?

For the race last weekend I had the sinister black on one side and an orange ATM spring onthe other side (to get rid of tweak)

Matt;
I'm glad that you are up and running . You should have 3 pinions alread and you still need larger ones? Standart pinions we have are 2.3,2.6 and 3.0mm. Since the diff has 17mm diameter you should have 5.6 ratio already.

As you; said feeling of the car totally changes with BDDS. When I first drive it, it was like using brushless motor first time while racing brushed motors.

I wonder why you switched to plastic plates instead of carbon ones?

Johnny,
I hope you receive your suspension plates soon and let us know what you think about BDDS

http://tgr.com.tr/index.php?option=c...d=40&Itemid=46

wolf:
I have an aditional Q? on Spinner: I have the older spinner and when I drive sinister with 9/43 gearing and the atomic chili engine the ESC start shutting down after 5 minutes...

can yuo explain this please? (9/43 is a good gearing for the engine, and the spinner is OK with the chili engine, Betteries = intellect750AAA cells)

I wonder how the difference in on-power weight transfer (compared to a pinion/spur based diff) affects handling, MK2... have you tried this on the track yet?
