Thanks, i am checking into it.
Regarding temps I guess I just want to see if the motor is really straining, if an eponential trend shows damaging heat iminent (temp ratings for the magnets) we'll shut it down. I was thinking non contact for ease.
I am also assuming that the builders will have plenty of bench runs on a submital before tourtureing their baby on a dyno
I have no issues with any of the parameters of this challenge & am trying not to dwell on the word "Win". As much as I would like to build the highest, tourqueiest, shinyest, gooderest motor this side of eternity, I still will have to give a bunch of credit to the forum as I suspect any one who participates will. I am thingking I have already won a huge prize just being able to contribute anything. If we happen onto an applicable design that will benifit the comunity here & abroad then the aknowledgmet will be enough. (untill the Nobel prize commitee calls
The Kudo's are just frosting on the cake. & again the target will allways be moving. (next motor should allways be better shouldn't it?)
