Great! I liked the way they looked and figured I'd try a set. Being white makes it easy to dye them any color wanted.
I'm planning on running the new spec tires from now on, may as well get to work on making the car/me used to them. I believe its good for the class

After looking over the rims from a new set of tires, they should be even better than the ones we originally had a couple years ago. The new ones appear to be nylon, and should be very durable, vs. the older ones from a couple years ago which seem to be ABS.

Default Motor Advice

Just putting together a USGT car. Which motor is the motor of choice amungst the masses?

I was thinking about the Trinity D3.5/21.5T Would this be the right move?

No not the D3.5, even the good ones arent competitive; Reeedy, Revtech, Schuurspeed, Turnigy are.

I like the Kill Shot as well. Have it up on screen now. I believe there is a High RPM and a High Torque. We run on carpet. About a 45 X 80 layout.

Which one of the two would you suggest? Looking at the High RPM Maxzilla

Ok, I looked back a little but don't really see what I am looking for. Who all makes 24mm wheels for the new tire? There are the few from Ride/Gravity rc, Tamiya, but who else has any? My LHS is getting the tires in and we are trying to find a variety of wheels. Thanks for any input.

Exotek Racing has some nice black spokes in stock. I purchased a few sets yesterday.

High Torque, FDR range 3.4 to 3.8 . For your track start at 3.65 with timing at 55 degs.

APS Racing/Speedmind also would be a good option.

I thought tuning rotors were illegal in USGT?

"Motor Specifications:
ROAR approved 21.5 + 2s lipo batteries No tuning rotors, must use OEM rotor 12.3-12.5mm"

Of course this also means my revtech 21.5 is not allowed since the last I checked Trinity never submitted it for approval..

Last week had a chance to race a set of the new Exotek wheels and they are a excellent wheell they ran very true and the tires adhere to them very well. For motors I have a Killshot Maxzilla Last week I ran track record times. I also really like my Reedy sonic mach2 it took me a lot of time to find the sweet spot between timing and gearing. When you find that spot the Sonic motor is very fast. I have a friend that that is very fast and he likes Thunder power 21.5 with a torque rotor.
