New Trinity Short Stack Motor legal for 17.5 buggy?

This was a great read! I wish that I had seen that before I bought regular D4s for most of my cars....I'm happy with the regular D4 so I could only imagine!

Also, for all you guys complaining about the expense of being competitve in stock racing....its in your head. The faster guys are are still going to beat you with slower cars. Driver skill and setup are just as important. The top guys at our track will run the same car in stock, mod, and expert and still rail everybody out.

I've finally swapped out my R1 a few times and can say for buggy they are both close, I think the D4ss has a little more bottom end, but both have tons of torque and need more gear than you think

I read a thread started by one of the Trinity drivers and geared exactly how he recommended and my regular D4 screams....it comes on power so hard it sounds like I have esc timing but I don't. I gear my buggy 69/34 w/50 degrees of timing and my SC 25/75 w/45 degrees. I'm really impressed with the regular old D4.

Default Really struggling with rear traction

What are some different things to try other than changing tires I've done plenty of that track is a packed clay with a little dusting on the top typical out door track

How big is your track, what are some of the normal lap times?

The track is around 70 x 100 or so.....it might be a tad larger. Its outdoors and average guy laps are 21-22 second the faster experts hit 19s, I can occasionally run low 20s....I'm an averge to fast sportsman and a laggard expert. With my D3.5s I geared 69/30-32. The D4 didn't wake up until I over geared it.

We have a place in Three Rivers....I bet you race at that little indoor in Exeter. I've been dying to try it out but since we're always there to get away my wife always gives me the stink eye when I even bring it up.

What gearing + timing do you like for the D4ss?

Just wondering, since I'm still struggling with mine.

Believe it or not these motors like a TON of gear! I was running a 5.43 with 60* of timing and went to a 5.36 FDR (66/32) with 60*s and my motor just came alive! I was literally pulling wheelies down the straight and people thought I was cheating. My buddy drove it and said that that is the fastest stock car hes driven since he had a d3.5 in a rear motor car all tuned up. Also my temps dropped so I am thinking I must have hit the sweet spot on the motor.

34/69 @ 50* timing so far, I tried 60 with less gear and it didn't really get hot, where its set now its come off around 140, so its likely it can handle 60, but I wasn't risking it at motorama

My primary residence is 200 miles away but I know that I'll be there towards the end of March. I'll be there Saturday the 28th but its my Dad's birthday so I'll try to stop by at the very least.
