Open track day yesterday and I brought my Trinity MCR still with a Reedy FireHawk (27t ROAR 95 brushed) and 4 cell NiCd (2000mAh) to run. Was pretty close to the new cars on 17.5 but run time was only 8 minutes. LOL. The track shop had a AE 12R5.1 on sale $190, the new 12R5.2 at $230 and a CRC Xti at $190. I don't know if the CRC parts wall was three times bigger because it breaks more but I picked up the CRC anyways.
(Prices are CDN and they had 13% off to offset the sales tax)
Also got some yellow rears and black front Pro-Cuts.
I will likely put a 17.5 in it first and a 13.5 later. Running 1s. Can anybody recommend gearing or rollout for a tight short track for these motors. I was looking at the Trinity D3.5 17.5 (yeah I know) and the 13.5 I have is a Reedy Sonic.
