I run the engine out of gas put 3-5 drops of afterrun in if I am not going to run the next day and put truck away dirty. Stock motors get cut when I get around to it. It is better to do it your way but not a ton gained and I just do not have that kind of time!

I used to take my nitro motor apart and clean it frequently. Now I only do it after every 3 or 4 race days. Seems if I wait longer, is when problems arise. But the truck gets torn down and cleaned after every race day.

Default hiya!

hiya Aaron,
we dunt have 1/10th gas stadium trucks here in singapore.
are they as fast as 1/8th buggies?
if they are, it might be interesting to start this class here, i would imagine it would have a lower running cost?
thanks for your time.

I am new to electric. I know you are running 19t and stock. I am running a cameleon 19t with 4505s and a bonzai stock with 767s.

How did you gear for these motors at HRH?

What spring/brush combos work best with stock.

Who seems to make the best 19t and stock motors for truck racing these days?

Thanks

I was gearing my 19T at 19-20/86 in truck. For stock motors it depends on the motor. Are you running the monster stock teardown? If so I would run 16-17/86 in truck.

You brush choices are good. The 4505 should not need to be replaced. They will last 4-5 cuts. 767 wear out quicker then that and should be replaced after one cut.

Personally I run the Orion Core and Peak Hellfire motors. They run strong, do not drop magnets and are great for truck and buggy. These are my motors of choice.

I just enjoy having power when I run stock..hahaha.

foampervert - They're usually not as fast around the track when compared to the buggies. 1/8th scale cars also tend to be a little more durable.

Default thanks for the reply!^^

hiya Aaron,
thanks for the quick reply!
i appreciate it, i think we might just stick to 1/8th then.
parts availability isn't exactly fantastic here.
durability is a big factor.
thanks at any rate!

Were you gearing your Hellfire and Core at 16/86 in your MF2?

Is the P2K2 a good truck motor. If so, whats the best brush / gearing combo?

Thanks

It would be good in a truck but i think a Core would be better due to more torque
