Optional Tuning Pins:
Fine tuning is now possible with your new ICON motor via our patent pending “Tuning Pins.”
To gain maximum performance it is important to understand the “why” behind the Tuning Pins.
Before learning how the tuning pins work, it is important to understand the internal components and how they relate to the tuning pins. Inside the motor is what’s called the stator. The stator is a series of steel laminates or plates that are pressed together to form the stator itself. The stator is the heart of the motor that has three legs in which the wire is wrapped around. The number of turns, or how many times the wire is wrapped around each leg determines the turn of the motor. I.e.; 10.5, 13.5, 17.5 etc. The turn of the motor has the greatest effect on how a motor will perform. However, the next most critical factor regarding performance is the actual stator design itself. The stator is what creates the electromagnetic field between the stator and the rotor. Note; a slot must be created in the stator design in order for the stator screws, or in our case, the “Tuning Pins” to pass through properly. However, when you remove material (steel) from the stator, you effectively lose magnetic material between the stator and the rotor, thereby causing a loss of electromagnetic field strength. When a loss of electromagnetic field strength occurs, the motor will immediately product more RPM and less torque, thus changing the performance characteristics of the motor. The opposite occurs when you add material (steel). Why is this important? Depending on your application, track condition, track length, amount of traction, and preferred driving style, the tuning pins can really make all the difference between winning or losing!
Below are examples of how to use the tuning pins most effectively:
Remember, adding material (using steel tuning pins) will decrease rpm and create more torque. Reducing the steel material (using aluminum tuning pins - or no pins) will increase rpm and decrease torque.
For example, a 17.5 with all 3 steel pins will produce approximately 15,800 rpm @ 48 degrees timing, with a max torque value of 120Nmm, and a max power of 70 watts @ 6800 rpm. (Note: 70 watts @ 6800 rpm refers to what rpm the motor was at when max power was created.) Now let’s take a look at the same 17.5 with the aluminum pins installed. By removing the steel pins and replacing them with the aluminum pins, the motor instantly gained 1200 rpm! The motor now looks like this: 17,000 rpm @ 48 degrees timing, with a max torque value of 117Nmm, and a max power of 70 watts @ 8800 rpm. Notice the difference in overall rpm and torque values. Yes, the motor with the aluminum pins did make more rpm, but with a bit less torque. However, the key information is where it made its max power. Notice, by changing the tuning pins, the max power number stayed the same. (70 watts) What's important to note is where the max power was made. With the 3 steel tuning pins in place, the motor made its max power at 6800 rpm, while the motor with the 3 aluminum pins made its max power at 8800 rpm.
Under real racing conditions, this shift of the powerband can make all the difference in the world! For example, if you plan to race on a shorter track, the ideal setup would most likely be the motor with the steel pins. Verses a longer track the ideal setup would be the motor with the aluminum pins where a higher rpm and smoother powerband would be better utilized.
Please see our website for further details on which “Tuning Pin” setup is right for you and your application.
Tuning Pins Adding/Removing Instructions:
1. Remove the 3 small set screws on the bottom of the pinion side end-plate.
2. Remove the 3 sensor board end-plate side-wall retaining screws, then remove the end-plate. Be cautious not to lose the motor shims when removing the end-plate.
3. To add tuning pins, simply insert the desired pins into the 3 adjacent holes located behind the wire and against the sleeve. Make sure you push the pins all the way down until they have reached the bottom of the can. To remove the pins, simply use the “Tuning Pin Removal Tool” or 0.50 wrench tip to push the pins out from the bottom of the can.
4. Once the chosen tuning pins have been inserted, simply replace the sensor-board end-plate as well as the 3 side-wall retaining screws. Be cautious not to over-tighten the 3 side-wall retaining screws. A small amount of thread lock is recommended.
O Replace the 3 small set screws on the bottom of the pinion side end-plate. VERY IMPORTANT: DO NOT over-tighten the set screws, as this can cause the tuning pins to push the sensor board end-plate up and out of position, permanently damaging the aluminum sleeve. Only tighten until you begin to feel initial resistance, which indicates the pins are just touching the end-plate.
