NEW drag race motor, the R5.1 series! This update adds small enhancements to the already race proven R5.0 drag race motor models.
- Refined sensor board attachment for better precision.
- All 5.1 series allows timing down to zero for enhanced torque.
- Timing marks on can exterior now indicate down to zero for ease of precise setting.
When buying these motors, there are more options to consider than other modified motors to help you with your initial setup. If you want a special timing set from settings below, please make a note when ordering:
- No Prep - Zero Degree Endbell (minimum 0 Degrees) - Initial Timing Set 18 degrees (actual can timing).
- Prepared Track - Zero Degree Endbell (minimum 0 Degrees) - Initial Timing Set 16 degrees (actual can timing).
Drag Car Other Options:
|R5 Bearing Dirt Cover: This optional part removes the hole on the timing end, and shields the rear bearing of dirt and debris. Easy install. Must be removed for bearing lubrication (also easy). Two colors available (black & orange). Only one cover is included for the price. Price is discounted when purchased with motor!|
|High Velocity Aluminum Cooling Fans (two sizes: 30mm & 40mm) and many colors. These are my best and biggest selling fans. Keeping you motor cool will save money! SAVE your motors! Discount price when purchased with motor! Price is for one fan only.|
|Bob 'Bullet' Light Team Edition: All the R5.0 and R5.1 Team builds will be dedicated to Bob Light and will have a special orange colored endbell as testimony to Bob's orange race cars, always with a large 'Number 1' on it! (see Bob's race career HERE!) With a R5 Team build, like for the R4 motors, there is included hand matched rotor/stator, close tolerance shimming of rotor to can, and custom timing. Then testing until it meets my specs! This upgrade uses premium steel bearings from NSK, unless ceramic bearings are selected (extra cost).|
|Ceramic bearings is another option. Ceramic hybrid bearings need a lot of maintenance and are sensitive to dirt (meaning dirt will destroy these bearings quickly). If ordered with motor, they will be installed, and with a discount! NOTE: requires special tools to support can during removal and install. See blog about how TPP does it!|
After more than a year of designing, testing, changes, and more testing, the R5.0 and R5.1 Pro Series modified motors are now ready to make your drag race experience a winning one for 2021 and beyond! Check for details HERE!
