    Not enough power/ran too hot to go through glue on pushbowl tracks I think - the evolution goes 480 - 490 - even 500 lately.

    I remember the cobalt first cobalt set ups were around .500 diameter , then popular for a while were .496 diameter in the ProSlot "hex" motors , the Camen were I think .500 diameter like the Koford and then some motors had .487 diameter armatures like Fantom and ProSlot and then Koford made the motor and armature .459 diameter , then motors went to .480 diameter armatures , now as was mentioned are .485 , .490 and .500 , .485 diameter is popular today , I am sure there is more but off of memory this is what I remember. I have old armatures that are .459 , .470 (Camen Bandit) .476 (G27) .480 , .485 , .486 , .487 , .488 , .490 , .492 , .495 , .496 , .500 , .510 (old "C" can Mura) and if any of you remember Pocket Rocket they were only around for a short time , the stacks were really short and I think the armatures were made by ProSlot.
