No. The Mach 2 uses new bearing sizes. Part numbers 248 for stainless and 249 for ceramic.

no, driving little toy cars will never make a man more attractive, no matter what hardware they use or how good they are.

Mach 2s are better. Best motors on the market IMO.

I think of Reedy, Trinity and Thunder Power as the only truly competitive on road racing motors.

I think driving toy cars actually make a man less attractive to women

Default Mach 2 13.5

Recently picked up the Mach 2 13.5. I'm running it blinky and just wanted a ballpark fdr for a medium flowing track. First time running blinky, we usually run 17.5 boosted. I'm thinking low to mid 4s?

Regards,

Simon

I actually met 3 girls at Floyd Bennett field while racing, 1 was amazed how fast and cute my NT1 was. I let her drive it and she was even more impressed by the way I can drive (she hit every board and broke it within 15ft)..
She heard the noise from the parking lot from the nitro cars and was curious what the hell it was...
You'll b surprised what people think about this hobby, when they actually really see it... Most people think of rc as a toys r us car that goes 5mph not $1500 machines that are pretty much tiny race cars..
Then there's the people that will always think they are toy cars for little kids!!
