I'm looking to get an ESC. Would the Novak Dually make a good race ESC or should I get the GT-7?

The Dually is based off of the Cyclone software. Great ESC, but the newer ones are much smoother.

The GT-7 is dialed, but so is the new GTX. I'd give both a look.

If you are racing and can afford it get the GT-X. If you on a budget and will play more then race the Dually is a good choice for a good speedo that is a little easier on the wallet.

A buggy with training wheels. Hehe, that's what I've heard the good buggy guys call trucks.

Default Sirio .12 Drake Edition

Aaron,

I have a big favor to ask you. I am having trouble getting the crank for my Sirio .12 Drake Edition. I ordered it on Dec 12, 2004 from Trinity, and it remains on backorder until mid Feb 2005. This motor rules. I only got one race out of it, when the crank messed up. Can you help me get one? Maybe Adam has one that he won't be using anymore. I know you have a direct line to him, so clould you please ask him?
I would really appreciate it. See you at The Dirt soon.

The thread came off because I used a bad clutch nut.

Can't you just replace the threaded part, instead of the whole crankshaft . Never saw one up close. But that's how my novas are.

Ruben - I will ask Adam when he gets back from Ohio. Make sure you remind me in about a week!

sdmlsu - Trucks are much easier to drive. Buy the best gear you can afford, get a couple batteries, and practice as much as you can!

jbrow - If trucks are buggies with training wheels, then buggies are fickle women. If you do anything wrong, they flip over in protest! haha

Pardon the broken engrish..I didn't type this

From the very 1st time you start your engine, plop the car on the
ground & begin running it in a parking lot in 2-3 minute intervals,
tuned only *slightly rich* getting the temps up in the 200F range on a
normal day. Every 2-3 minutes, shut the engine down & let it cool
completely with the piston at BDC, and then fire it back up; continue
this cycle until you've run 15 min or so, and then bump up to 3-4
minute intervals. Vary the RPM and don't be afraid to get the temps
in the 200's. What you want is heat cycling of the components without
the incredible stress that comes with breaking an engine in when it's
overly rich & cold. After cycling the engine in this manner for about
20-25 total minutes, it'll be ready for the track and race tuning.

It's all about helping the newbies..without you guys, we wouldn't have a hobby!
