Depends on the motor, tire, and amount of traction. I have used up to a Speedmerchant black, which is heavier than copper, with pink tires and a stock motor. It was a strange track though, as the carpet was worn out, but there was black groove.

Starting with the gold is a good idea, and adjust from there.

CraigX's setup for the Halloween Classic was on Jack. His car was excellent.

No but I have talked to a few guys that have them and they are really happy. I hear they are tiny.

I just hope they have the software figured out in the R1's. They are sensorless controllers and its a bear for them to drive current motors designed for sensored speedos smoothly.

1. What is that silver rod inbetween the suspension arms...

2. Where can I get the screws he has.. Mine rust due to my basement being humid, so i need to upgrade the screws...

3. What connectors are those?

4. Where can I get that spur gear and spur gear covers? The track i race on is so dirty, have to practically clean the diff everyrun!

I will def buy the screws, connectors and spur/cover, so if you guys can link me, that'll be awsome, im still new to 12th, dont know what i need.

Ben
