Hi all,

i´ve got a short question. Didn´t find anything helpful about it.

Is the new PF L-motor "more powerful" than the old one ?

i think they are about equal: XL motor with about 220 rpm and 40 torque, and L with 400 rpm and 18 torqueSo gearing down L motor 2:1 gives 2 times more torque.

They are close, but XL is still more powerful with 2.21W of mechanical power at 9V, where as the L motor has 1.85W of mechanical power at 9V.

If you really want some power go for the buggy motor, way more powerful than the XL motor.

Semi on topic, how many L motors can you run off one battery box with the new V2 IR?

you can run two L motors, any more would result in receiver cutting off when you would stress the motors

So if you geared down the RC motor is it stronger than a XL / NXT at the same RPM?

Yesterday I tested 2x L motors as alternative to 1 XL motor at my middle-scale awd mocs like this

http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=72502&hl=9395

or this http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=73762&hl=8081.

I built light awd chassis and mount 2L motors. The weight was simulated by two battery boxes (of course with accus)

Weight of chassis and moc car about 900-950 g. So I can compare them.

2L shows the same torque, but better acceleration, 1,5 times faster speed, compact and better mounting possibilities.

Our next awd car will be with 2x L motors;)
