1) I will have a new Battleday schedule for next year posted by this weekend. We are still going to try for an indoor meet in February.

2) We spoke about making a group purchase of 5300+ mah batteries. If you are interested, let me know. ($16 ea)

3) I am going to make an order for some 400 and 480 motors. Also let me know if you are interested. ($20 a set)

4) Thanks to everyone who payed their community center dues for 2012. The center is very happy with us and want us to continue their partnership with them.

Yes, they will fit in 3:1s. You just need to pull the gear off your old motors and put them on the new ones. I have a gear puller which I will share at CAN-AM meets.

I think I'm interested in the 400 motors as well, possibly the 480's. A battery might be a good investment as well. Not a memeber yet but I think your twisting my rubber arm lol

I sent PMs out regarding the Batteries. If you didn't get it, then PM me.

I know the SLU will handle 400s with no problem. I don't see why they wouldn't handle 480s. I was thinking of 480s in my Leopard as it has a road speed of 65km/h so I need something fast. Its kind of uncharted territory.

I have 400s in my T34 and they make a huge difference as the sprocket is much smaller than the German tanks.

I guess I am asking as I have some VERY heavy tanks and if the 480 provide more torque (not concerned about speed) that would be better. I already use the 400's and they are great for the 3:1. I am just wondering if the 480 are better at providing more torque over the 400.

I don't know about more torque. More RPMs, yes.


Does anyone know what tamiya mores are rated at? (Ie 400, 480)

For all of those who have low battery life, I wouls suggest trying to include ball bearings in your rolling stock. This greatly improves the tank and helps the batterries last much longer.
 Now, not all models can easil be modded this way. 
I would then suggest trying the Asiatam hulls for those with these types of tanks.
My HL Tiger I has this hull and it will run for hours on a battery. You can actually fit 2 packs neatly in this hull. Then you can run virtually all day on one pair of batteries.

Oh, I also should say that I have the Asiatam Early tiger road wheels on this tank. They come with bearings in the wheels. This is a great advbantage over the stock plastic wheels and you do not need to buy the whole Asiatam hull to use them. they will fit with stock HL components.

That would be my next question! So you mean, axle's from the stock hull are the same diameter? :P
