Default Neu Drag cars

I know that Neu motors are very good quality and with lots of power , so why don't more people use them in RC drag cars?. Most people run Mamba's ( including myself ) but I have now started using a Tekin motor and am sure a Neu would also work. I know Neu stuff is in a higher price range , but it still seems as though even the fastest guys running the best batteries and other gear still use Mambas. Are people worried about damaging such high $ motors in accidents?.

Neu does make a 9900kv 1506 motor.


I use Neus in my other cars. I don't use them in my 1/10 dragsters. 1/10 two pole motors produce more rpms then the 4 pole counterpart, unless it's the kevlar wrapped Plettenbergs. Now if you had a 4WD/AWD dragster, a 4 pole motor will work for you.
Everybody uses mamba's as they are popular and warranty issues are easy taken care off. A Qaurk for example will produce more power then a Mamba Max, but getting one and getting it warrantied is a pita. A tekin ESC is very smooth for dragracing as well and the RX8 ESC is an animal. I have a LT ESC that produces more power then a MM and is on par with a Qaurk. If you do decide to give the Neu motor a try, use 15 degrees of timing for dragracing with a max of 18 degrees if your system can handle it. Use a Y wind motor to take advantage of the timing increase. BTW, I found that a the B50, C40 and C50 Hacker motors spool up the quickest compared to other motors, but are not popular in the dragracing crowd. I'm guessing many are not willing to invest to try something new.

For max power use additional capacitors to reduce ripple currents, and/or when long power wires are used. It's best to use parallel lipo battery packs to reduce resistance and that is one the reasons 40C Thunderpower batts produce the most power.

No problem.

Here's what I did to my RX8 Tekin to race 4 pole and 2 pole motors. Swapped in a different fan, 6mm motor plugs, 5mm battery plugs, two capacitors and dual 1500W TVS. Should handle anything I throw at it.

I got a 1509 1D to try on Thunder Power 3s for our Top Fuel Class. Should go OK. I also built my own light dragster chassis and ran a [email protected] 97 mph in testing at QMDRA track with no body and a 380 size Feigao 5700kv motor on 2350 TP 4S

Yeah a few have used the 1100 series to run over 100mph and under 1.3 seconds. As to what model is the best of the 1100 series is a secret. The lighter cars can go quicker but are less consistent.
