One for Tim.   :)  

A #25 for the Hawk motor (20t/25) with a Bugenis comm. That oughtta be pretty "super" I figure. Resistance on this short stack (around .400") comes in at .043 ohms.  

The set-up has had absolutely nothing done to it except for bonding the endbell bushing in place. I figure this motor can be run-to-destruction as a road racer, or just run really fast as a drag motor. :D  

The idea here is to push the limits for the bone-stock Hawk setup, because you never really know what the limits are until you try and find them! I can always switch to the aluminum endbell when I get that squared away, but for now it's "ballz-to-the-wallz" time!

Electric motors are pretty "magical" contraptions when you think about it. You feed them some current, and they turn it into motion. I think that's pretty cool.  

Anyway, I'm not sure which way I'll go with this little missile. Maybe a super light piano wire chassis under something like this:

Or maybe something like this:

I'll have to see where it decides to go.

Not that it matters much, my vote is for the dragster. That's gonna be one "hot" powerplant, and the "very" short time it will have to heat things up in a dragster would reduce the possibility of a "blown" motor!

Being generally ignorant of what winds are used in which motors, I'm just wondering how this 20t/25 compares with the Pro Slot "Big Dog" motor? Or with the X12 that Pro Slot offers in their mini-motor?

It's way, way hotter, although the stack length is similar to the X12. A 12 is a #29 wind.

I forget what the "Big Dog" is, but it isn't anything like this.

Big Dog is a Contender wind.

20 turns of 25awg is stoopid hot in comparison.

Thanks for the info, Dave. I was pretty sure it was some sort of #30 wind, but I lose track of all the various specs.  

I owe you a phone call also, speaking of losing track of things.   ;)

I put a 27 arm in one of those set-ups - just to see how it would work - only took a few minutes to melt an endbell.

A G27 is what, 38 turns of 27?
