Default Help jugg one build

Hi,

Im currently building a jugg 1 based 14 inch scale crawler..is it a good idea to use two 65t lathe motor?what's the lowest pinion i can use? I read somewhere that they connect the motors in series, what's the logic behind this? as on now i have to forego buying a gd600, so my choices is either a double 65t, a single 55t or the stock motors in series, i don't know whicjh of them is better, please help..thanks..im using txt tires by the way.

Edward

G'day,
I would probbly run a single 55t or 65t with a gd600. The 65t is a little slower but has more torque. The stock motors are poo.

Running the motors in series halves the voltage to them.
if you are running a 9.6v pack, motors in parallel see 9.6v each, but in series, that drops to 4.8v each.
so at full throttle the motor is running half speed.
it effectively doubles the length of your trigger pull and makes low speed manuvering easier, the trade off is wheel speed.

I have a txt with dual 55 turns, gd600's and 15t pinions (to be able to bore it out to 5mm for the gd shaft)
With 40 series moabs, it tops out at a fast walk, maybe 4 or 5 mph
the motors are in series, but I'm running 14 cells through my superduty. I volted up to keep the current low, the geared down to give me plenty of room for crawling speeds.

running dual 65t motors in series on fewer cells with a smaller pinion you should be able to reach the same easy crawling speeds, and have some wheel speed left over without that whole insta-axle-snap power I fight.

Wiring 2 motors in series gives you lower speed and longer run times.Which would mean 2 motors wired parralell burns up the juice fast and gives you way more speed.I am currently using a B&B axle snapper motor on mine and it does good but it also has 2.2 mashers.When going up to maxx or 40 series tires a GD600 is a must I would think.
finally! my 14" TXT.

what is the best gear reduction>???and what ratio?

Default Help my Jugg set up..new pics

Hi,

I need your opinion on my motor set up, I went with the dual 65t motor with 10t pinions on the stock jugg chassis..I'l be using an EVX ESC..I tested the motors when I broke them in for 45+ minutes with the tranny disconnected to the axles, it was warm afterwards..

Thanks
