Hobbywing Justock. Small, blinks, $50.

Endorsed by a certain GT3 past champion.

My m03 is getting a Novak edge.

Can't speak for the 05 (heavy chassis to start with as I understand it), I've been running 75g in the front bumper of my 03 (1325 RTR with added weight though out the chassis), seems ok.

Grandpa, I run a Speed Passion in my 03, and the Hobbywing in my F1... I'd lean toward the HW product (I have the programming module should you go that direction)

I've heard the 05 is a heavy chassis, but mine usually sits around 1230-1250, with a 3300mah battery, ready to race. Might be as high as 1300 now, given all the alloy bits I've added.

I am running the ORCA Q'Spark w/2200KV motor Combo. On 2s is quite quick.

I am going to the just stock esc in mine. I have an xerun but it is too big for where I want to mount it.

My 05 was right at 1180grams in brushed configuration. GTX speedo, 4200 mah Reedy and Mostly aluminum screws (just cuz I like the blue). I would imagine a full plastic car would be lighter than one with a ton of aluminum, but I've always liked the car a little heavier than the limit. Last year I ran around 1275 in TCS. Super light minis in my opinion are too twitchy and roll too easy. I prefer an aggressive but stable car. I may sacrafice a tenth or two if that but I can put in lap after lap with consitency.

I still can't figure the whole timing rule for TCS this year. If one motor has timing decal or marking and others have infinite timing without a factory max.. How can that be level racing? I'm not saying brushless is bad.. Just that allowing any roar motor and only max factory timing..seems silly to me. Why not a locked trinity motor or something. I've seen ballistic motors timing decals very more than 5 degrees from the factory!

I think it means you can't modify the motor to get more timing. Not what the sticker says.


Silver can wasn't exactly fair ether, people still bought 5-10 to find the best, voodo magic, etc...

That's not how it reads. It says timing may not exceed the manufactures maximum timing mark, not limit.

Thanx for the suggestions on the various B/L escs. I did find a KO 350 BLZ that a fellow racer was willing to part with. That solves my immediate problem for my extra M03. Will check out the others for my M05.

Jay you missed it. I did the "41 Double" today - spec mini at Hobbytown, spec slash at Madera Hobbies. Two races, in two counties, on two surfaces, at the same time, 10.5 miles apart. Can it be done?

Yes it can! Will I do it again?

Noooooooo!

Daniel showed up with his new M05, I ran the rent a racer. He tells me "you need to be at about 21.3 or so". I run two laps total before they close practice, and do a 19.5 Daniel hadn't broke in his motor yet, so he took me up on my offer of my "best" Johnson motor from my collection. We run the first heat, he thumps me by a lap running a quick lap 19.0 - with the motor I just gave him. My car is loose in two corners, and continues to want to randomly get on two wheels for no reason in spots it shouldn't.

I skip the second round so I can get the first round of qualifying in in the Slash, charge the mini and sauce at MH before driving back to Fresno to run the mini main. I changed the way I sauced the front from 3 inner ribs to 2, and buffed the rest of the tire with motor spray. We run the main.

The rent a racer is massively improved. Daniel leads for four minutes with me closing the whole time. He dots out, and gives me the spot, and returns the favor by chasing me down. On the last lap he put a move on me at the inner loop, we bumped, and I got the best of it and drove away unscathed. Two turns, hug the inside of the sweeper, and this bad boy is mine. Except, somehow I either got distracted, lost concentration, brain faded, or otherwise just shot the dog and dot out on the very last dot possible before the finish. Daniel wins. He ran a quick lap of an 18.8, I ran a quick lap of 18.9. We were never separated by more than 20 feet, it was a great race.

20 trucks for the first day of Stock Slash, I ran one qualifier and was P2. Made an aggressive pass on the leader on the first lap when I thought he had blown the corner, only to discover - nope! He had some massively unconventional line and I worked him. I recovered from dead last to get P3.

And, after 75 miles between tracks on 41, did not receive any law enforcement entanglements. I'm going to bed now.
