    I've not done any proper testing, but I have a mix of these and the 12v ones in Plastic Fantastic and they look about the same speed at full throttle with the bot under no load sat in the cradle....

    What issues are you having with robustness of the current drive system? I use the 12v argos drills in one bot at 4s, (around 50% over voltage), 4wd, one motor/gearbox per wheel on 100mm wheels. It...

    If you can tell us if they are old style or new style Argos drill motors, it might be worth a post in the wanted section too. Someone might have a gearbox or 2 left over after just using the motors...

    I should have a spare Lemon Rx with me which you can borrow for the day if you need it. I'm fairly certain these are directly compatible with the Orange Rx so it should be a straight swap.

    It was the motors that broke every time. The gearboxes seems pretty good and I'm still on the original gearboxes that have had the abuse at both 5s and 4s. At Cheltenham it was on 4s. Tx...

    CAD renders are looking might fine for the new Strix! However, please may I offer a quick work of caution on the new 12V Argos drill motors on 5s. I broke all 4 of mime on 5s inside 2.5 events, they...

    Whats the nominal voltage of the motors and what are you planning on running them at? It would be good to get a more precise figure of the overvoltage and therefore the theoretical new rpm. FYI both...

    I don't think you'll have too many issues with your 18v motors on 6s. At a full charge of 4.2V/cell, at 6s battery should be 25.2V, that's only about a 40% over voltage. Lots of people run the 12V...

    Just a note that it you use the melt the nut into the wheel method on HDPE wheels, the wheel will slide off the nut after about 30 seconds of use, the HDPE is just too slippy to hold it. However it...
