    What advantage over a single mag motor does a multi mag motor have ?

    Weet-bix is OK but that is not what I have .

    FTI I am thinking about building a multi-mag ceramic D can motor.
    Zapping the magnets won't be a problem as I have a magnet zapper

    They are supposed to be smoother.
    Why do I do this to myself?

    Multi Mag motors work with axial oriented magnets.
    The magnet pieces create a more radial orientation.
    Where the magnets are glued together creates a Hot Spot. (higher gauss reading)
    Advantage is stronger more radial field (lines of flux) that the armature cuts through
    instead of across.

    Are multi mag D cans, legal in Australia?

    They are NOT in NZ.

    So you can use them legitimately in Oz?

    Reading through our rules, and the PS catalogue, makes for some interesting reading

    Negative Zippity this only applies to Hornsby Slot Cars . The PS2100 also comes with ball bearings another thing not excluded .

    We allow ball bearings in our S16D cans

    I can find nothing in our rules that prohibits quad mags.

    I Think most multi-magnet motors are used in high end wing cars and drag racers. Radial magnets have a N/S pole for every segment, not just the center one as in a one part magnet.

    Would they work on a flat road course?

    Eurosport racers might use some....anyone?

    Proslot 'semiquad' magnets sort of give the effect and still a legal ceramic C-can single magnet.

    Some info here. Somewhere I saw a better description but can't find it.
    Also there are multi mag and radial mag motors.
    Personally I think it's the wrong road to go down for scale racing.
    We need to make it easier for new people not harder or more expensive.
