Hi everyone. Today I reduced my compression and I can intake 10 cubes without an issue. After those 10, the intakes overheat, and dont have enough torque to intake them. I was wondering if anyone has experience with this and an idea to solve it?
you’ve probably just hit your torque limit on your intakes. mine stop at 11 cubes. if you want to do more, you’ll have to slow down your intakes and make them stronger. if you’re using 24t sprockets, going down to 18t would help. but tbh 10 cubes is pretty good.
It Could also be a compression issue where the intake motors are working too hard to hold the cubes in your tray. In that case you would have to increase compression. Or if you have too much compression you can overheat the motors when intaking cubes and you will have to lower compression. There is a small happy medium.
Do you have intake/arm locks? We found those to be the key to high compression with 200rpm intakes without burning them out too quickly. We use 12t sprockets in the front and 15t sprockets in the back, which seems to be a good middle ground for speed and torque with 200rpm motors
