Thumbs up

We were told the motor we were running in the recent RC Pro series was a "joke". We were running the Losi 8T with the .26 Sportworks motor. At the 11 1/2 minute mark we came in for our first fuel stop. They did not think it was very funny after that. People stopped what thety were doing to watch. This motor has 7 gallons on it! It does not give up power to anyone. We were running an 086 on it for the track. With a big block you can also consider different gearing options. If you have a ton of bottom... gear it up!
Please?? Why not consider a .26?
I did not believe it at first. I do now.

But its not a >$300 motor! I know what you mean tex, I tried one out as well, but frankly I just dont feel like I have the kahunas unless I am running a nice RB or Nova!

Thanks Tex!
I do know what you mean about the 26. A buddy of mine has a LST 2 and that motor runs very strong and does not heat up for anything. I believe it's the Mach 427? It is retarded strong and cheap! At $126 a copy. Ironicaly he also has a truggy and has a C6 in it. But I have to agree with Rezenclowd. I'm partial for my Novarossi and RB's.

I have two motors coming in. A 928 and a C6BB. I'll choose hopefully this friday.
