So if I understand correctly, the P-94s are going to be ready in a couple of weeks, while the original's are being phased out?

I need a 35T and 45T motor, plus some batteries. Will send you an e-mail shortly John. I don't care which of the torquemaster versions they are, just want to actually be prepared for once when the Losi comp crawler gets released (although final gearing would be nice to know!) !

The p-94s are being wound right now, the OG TM is being produced again and should be ready around end of march or so.

P-94 version should be in late next week.

When you say OG do you mean 4 magnet?

And then another question. Can I lock the motor and turn the armature to adjust timing and get more torque out of these motors so I lose some clod stall?

Two magnets were the OG design, but there were a few hundred 4 magnet versions that were sold. Small difference in speed, slightly faster.

If you want to change timing, just loosen the endbell and rotate it. You want it to be faster with advanced timing. If you look on the can there should be timing marks. Don't wrench the comm, that is just a cheater trick for stock motor drivers.

When you advance timing you will lose torque at the motor, so if you gear down to compensate for the extra wheelspeed you could gain torque at the tire. Otherwise you may not get more torque, depending on the voltage and wind of the motor.

Ok. I got the idea from my dad who did race stock cars. I will leave them alone then. You know of any other 4 magnet motors? My drag brakes are just not strong enough on 2 magnets.

Thanks

Drag brakes are even weaker on 4 mag cans. What ESC are you using?

Really. Well I guess I thought that because I was running a 4 magnet 45t on an FXR and then switched to 2 magnet sidewinder. But now in the Berg I run Mamba max with to integy motors. It could be the motors I guess.

Integy motors have poor drag anyway. Tekin controllers have a bit more drag than Castle controllers.

Ok so would you recommend a 35t P-94 or wait for the OG 35t pros to come in? For a Mamba max esc.

Both will perform near identical, I have no preference between the two really.

You said end of March? Im in need of 5 35T OG TMs and since you said the p-94s are discontinued I assume I now have to wait for the TMs. You said your not fond of Pre-ordering but is that still a NO then? j/w so I can make sure a few of my rigs are covered... Thx John
