TSR podcast Episode 66

  • RC Word Of the Week
  • Cog, or Cogging: When a brushless motor hesitates or rocks back and forth before moving forward. Cause from a motor being sensorless, Cogging occurs when the speed control does not know where the rotor is in relation to the stator. Once the motor begins moving no matter the direction the speed control can then analyze what direction the motor is trying to move and correct it if needed.

Show introduction and welcome.

Welcome to the TSR speed shop RC podcast,

Tim Notes:

Health, “Whats wrong with me…”

Texas race,

Called out by everyone in Texas…

New shirts, and ball busting

Our sad track……

The difference between Socal and Texas.

Taking heat for saying speaking my mind…..

FB Questions:

Joe Zaier Jr If you can't find a good spot to race, what other rc discipline will you race in? Or will you quit racing all together?

Pete Phillips Give us tips on setting up an Offroad buggy for All-run or an index class. Some of us can't afford a dedicated drag car so we'll have to go old school and convert something over...

Daniel Gallardo Will your fancy new shirt be available to the public?

Jeremy Drey What was your highest speed numbers back in the days of round cells and brushed motors. And what's the highest number of round cells you ever had in a car.

James Knight Will you be broadcasting at axialfest2017?
