Hypothetically, this concept could be applied to say a slot car with a commercial micro RC receiver and brushless ESC + motor.

Some more experimenting today with the stock ESC (Tower Pro Clone) with factory firmware. One issue has been when traversing a lane-change the ESC stops and resets which takes a second or two, very an...

PSA If anyone is using the As5600 module, the 10k pull down to gnd on the GPO pin has to be removed to get pwm or Analog from the out pin.  I2C still works regardless.

Does anyone know what the motor drive pwm frequency is for a Carrera digital chip and if it is driven low side or high? TIA

I'm still going on this :) I rewound another gold motor and this time I tried 30 turns of the 0.16mm wire. It was fiddly but I got there in the end. The result however was that the windings are too bu...

Today I got the rewound motor mounted in an old car chassis, and got it running on the track. I changed the cars code to output a signal the esc was happy with. Very drivable, lane changes, good accel...

Just had to wait for some parts to arrive.  I now have one the gold motors from the previous post rewound. The new wind is 24 turns per pole of 0.16mm single strand wire. ~1.7 ohms measured across the...

Here's a comparison photo of a stock brushed slot car motor next to a couple of brushless motors. The Gold coloured motor on the left is an old drone motor that had a broken shaft. I borrowed one from...

Hi KensRedZed,  no harm no foul :)   Just trying to stay in line with the forum guidelines. I am not the creator of the video in the first post hence how I overlooked the chassis type/brand and just s...

I  have created an new thread as this one is drifting away from being Carrera focused, https://slotracer.online/community/showt...6#pid37276

I’ve done some more on my ESC project for a brushless 1/32 slot car. The commercial ESC I have, now has an ATmega 328 microcontroller, it came with an ATmega 8 so I replaced it for a decent spec varia...

re data rates -  Reading the data sheet always pays off. :)

I have just let the smoke out on a decoder. The brake Mosfet and transistor failed when I accidentally shorted the decoder.  This guide came in very handy as a reference to find parts on a donor decod...

I definitely don't fly enough these days. :thumbup: I used to always have a model in the car and have a fly on the way home from work when the conditions were good. Lipos seem to get worn out the mos...

I've used some of those cheap (brushed) motors and they go good, but not for long. So you need to replace it which doubles the cost, plus inconvenience. Maybe I'm just unlucky. I've not had to replace...

Some advantages of brushless, Quieter operation No need to bed in the brushes when new Performance doesn't change with time (i.e no brush wear) Longer motor life More efficient so less heat Better pow...

My bad, perhaps I should have described it as a Carrera Digitalised car, or something. :)

Check this out, a brushless motor fitted to a Carrera Digital car. Nice! [Video: https://youtu.be/SSgQO36E2Qw?si=XHX4rlLU7zY21rK4]
