Where Speed Lives ...
Tips and Common Sense
Armature Handling
Handle your armature carefully.
Always use a quality armature installation tool to remove and
install armatures.  Never apply any force to the commutator
plate.  Any excessive force can cause the commutator plate to
move out of alignment causing decreased performance.
Nicks or dents in the wire windings can decrease performance
and render an armature non-functional.  Just be careful.
Road Race Motors
Every Road Race Motor is made
from select parts, custom
machined, custom wound,
balanced, and measured to strict
standards to insure precision.
These motors are predictable and
powerful.

All Road Race Motors are
designed and built to run on Rail
or Braided tracks powered by
Wall Warts, Batteries, and
Regulated Power Supplies unless
indicated otherwise. The better
the power source, the better the
performance.
Drag Race Motors
Every Drag Motor is made from
select parts, custom machined,
custom wound, balanced, and
measured to strict standards to
insure precision. These motors
have soldered shafts and are
wound with High-Temperature
wire. They are predictable and
powerful.

The Drag Motors cost a little more 
because there is much more work
that goes into making motors for
drag racing. Lam/Shaft
fabrication, Hi-Temp wire, wire
stripping, and shaft soldering, just
to name a few.

All Drag Motors are designed and
built to run on Rail or Braided
tracks powered by Batteries, or
Regulated Power Supplies only.
The better the power source, the
better the performance.
Building Chassis's:
Install high performance armatures in well built chassis's only. 
Do not use old brushes.  Always use a new set of brushes
when ever you install a new armature and make sure you
adjust the brush spring tension properly.  Too much tension
can cause an armature to overheat.  To little tension can cause
decreased performance and arcing which in itself can cause
overheating.  I have seen brushes melted right into chassis's
because of the use of crappy parts.  New brushes are cheap,
use them.
A Word On Magnets
All of the Road Race Motors can run with any magnets you
desire. The more powerful the magnet, the more speed and
torque the motor will put out. Watch out though because
sometimes a magnet that is too strong may actually reduce a
motors performance. You may need to experiment with
different types of magnets to achieve the results you want from
your armature.
Drag Race motors can run with any magnets you desire,
however, Poly or Neo Magnets are recommended. The more
powerful the magnet, the more speed and torque the motor will
put out. You may need to experiment with different types of
magnets to achieve the results you want from these motors.
Armature Handling

Always use a quality armature installation tool to remove and

them ok.
