I have a few NSR King 21 Evo/3 engines and was wondering if they perform better one way than the other, in the past i just stuck them in the way the way the writing was written on the sticker coating the engine. Is it something i should test on each engine individually but before i do i thought id ask better slot car minds than mine here for their thoughts, does it apply to other brands of engines too?, any info would be appreciated
Hey, I was racing my Slot.it group 5 the other night and each lap the motor was getting slower and slower until I could've probably crawled faster than it. Another club member added 'Voodoo' drops into the motor making it better but not permanently better. The motor is the stock yellow one that comes with it. If anybody else knows any tips and tricks on how to make dying motors up to snuff again, it would be much appreciated Kind regards the_Wombat
I was repairing an SCX DB9 with a split chassis that I've had for ages but not run for obvious reasons. And running in the new RX42B while working on the chassis. Running submerged in fuellite as is my current procedure with SCX motors. Motor has been run both ways at 3v no broblem. But... When I go to turn the voltage up on the PSU it will not increase. I can adjust the amperage delivered but not the voltage. I fiddled around with the supply for a while thinking this was at fault, checking fuses, leads, pots and switches etc but no change to the situation. Something made me decide to test another motor and all is normal and working well. Back to the original motor and same situation. I can adjust current delivery but not voltage. Motor is also a good 10℃ hotter than the other motor as measure by trusty laser thermometer. Obviously I have sat the motor aside and will crack it open later to investigate. But has anyone any ideas what I should look for? Cursory inspection shows a bit of scratching/groove wear around the comm.
