Retail price on here, first motor: $20

Additional motors after the first motor: $15.35

I'd prefer PayPal for now, just ask me to invoice you, or if you just really have faith in me like that, you can send me money via PP and I will get your order in the mail ASAP.

 

The MOAMB3 IS the highest RPM/torque FK motor available. It is imperative that this motor is run with the correct gearing in order to give the motor's a long lifespan...

 

Message me with orders, or if you are a track owner, we can discuss discounts for larger orders!

 

Thank you,

 

Jonathan Anderson (MOAM)

Why don't you ditch this thread and make a new post with photos and description of what you have for sell. A normal for sale post.

That's a reasonable request. I'll split the thread and add the pics Jonathan sent me to the ad.

 

And will delete these last two posts in a day or so.

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

So these are not available to distributors and you are selling them at discounts directly to individuals? Basically just a fun motor to the masses.

He said he'd cut bulk deals to track owners. A step in the right direction.

I have been advised as to who I should talk to distributor-wise, but I have not had the opportunity to take that step yet. I have some reservations about selling to distributors currently, but most of that probably lies within a lack of confidence in myself. That's something I just have to conquer myself and I will.

 

Having said that, I am happy to sell to track owners at a discount. Feel free to contact me with any questions, or other inquiries. 

 

Have a great day, everybody!

No, I said I would cut deals for trackowners. Individuals, who cannot prove they own a raceway, will have to pay retail price. My reasoning for my retail price of $20 for the first motor and $15.35 for additional motors is that I'm paying cost of shipping. Whatever the price ends up set at, I will not undercut any track owners who stock and sell MOAM. If that means raising prices on here to make it work, then that's what I'll do. As of right now, no tracks are selling MOAM, so I have the prices set at what works for me. 
 
Please keep in mind that as far as FK motors go, I would be very suprised to find someone paying more per motor than I am. Instead of cutting costs, I put more money into each MOAMB3 so that I can confidently say I'm happy with the quality of my product. 
 
Right now it's a free-for-all, but once I set prices with distributors and raceways, then I'm going to give them room they need to make profit. I would prefer to go directly to raceways because that leaves more meat on the bone for them. I care a lot more about keeping tracks open than I do about keeping distributors in business. If I can distribute MOAM myself, I am not opposed to that. I'm happy to work with distributors as well. I just feel like there is more money to be made for each raceway through direct order from me without anyone in between. 
 
This process has been very organic. MOAM has essentially built itself by supplying quality motors. I have a 'day job' that keeps me more than OK financially. I want MOAM to grow organically and go whereever the road leads.
 
Thank you,


Jonathan Anderson

I wanted to give an update.

 

I 'broke-i'" a MOAMB3 the way I personally think it should be done (by just running it at low voltage for long periods of time). Once the break-in was done (roughly 12 hours at 3.3v), I made sure the grooves were worn out of the brushes, and hooked it up to 12 volts. It turned 81.5k RPM.

 

I am frequently asked how to run in MOAM motors, so I wanted to post here and explain my personal theory on it. I will either put the motors in a car new, and just run them when I'm at the track for practice, or I will run them at low voltage for a period of time. I don't like the idea of putting my motors in water, or any harsh chemicals. I feel it is best to just let the brushes naturally wear in, and go from there. If I put a motor in a car to break-in, I will run it for a while (not letting it ever get too hot), and you will just know by feel when that motor is at its prime. Then I will take it out of the car and set it aside for a race.

 

My team uses a variety of chemicals to submerge the motor and break it in, but my problem with this is that it will strip away some of the plating on the outside of the brushes, which is where most of the electricity is conducted. That said, their broken-in motors break that 80,000 RPM barrier too, so I could be 100% wrong about some of my theory on it.

 

Everyone has their own method, but the point of break-in is to get rid of the groove in the middle of the brush. In the future I plan to have the motors manufactured with flat/already broken-in brushes. One thing at a time though.

Just a heads up, we have finally gotten more stock in, I've been fielding a lot of requests, so I wanted to let everyone know there are more MOAMB3s available, :).

Thank you for your time and patience!
