Aaron, when you go to a track like Hot Rod, that you know is going to have really high bite, do you change anything on set up, other than tires? Or do you just drive what normally works for you?

I just got the Aug 04 issue of Xtreme RC cars. I'm looking through it at work while at break and what do I see? Aaron on page 122 standing with Drake and Ryan. It was the race results for the Pro-Line Nitro Maxx Challenge. Congrats a little late. LOL

I was sitting at the lunch table yelling "Hey guys COME HERE AND LOOK!! I talk to this guy online!!"

I got my June 04 issue today as well that had in it the tip I had sent in. Prolly the only time I'll ever see my name in a RC mag - heck ANY mag unless COPS comes out with a magazine. LOL

nitro kid - That sounds way too high. Try a 19 as a starting point.

nikos2002 - Sometimes I will add a washer under the front ballstud, and/or lengthen the rear camber link by moving out on the hub or dialing in more positive camber. 95% of the time, however, I just put Taper Pins on and punch it!

YBLegal - Thanks! I haven't picked up that issue yet, does it have the Gas Nationals in it too?

Yes it has the 2004 ROAR Off-Road Fuel Nationals that you pulled 9th in. Congrats on that too. I hadn't gotten that far in the mag yet. LOL

It has the following race coverage in it:

Pro-Line Nitro Maxx Challenge
Reedy International Race of Champions
ROAR Off-Road Fuel Nationals

nitro kid- How many cuts you get depends on how long you go between cuts. The longer you go, the deeper you have to cut to get a fresh surface because the comm will develop an hourglass shape, thus less cuts until it's done. There is no set amounts to how many times you "should" cut one. There is no harm in running the motor until you hit the plastic under the copper on the armature. The only thing that may come from this is glitching. Sometimes when there is too much wrap on the comm, the motor will glitch, but if you don't have this problem, run her till it's to the bottom.

how true it may be I dont know,
but I have heard that as the comm gets smaller, rpm's go up and torque goes down...
gearing could maybe compensate but just somthing else to consider when deciding if its time for a new motor or not.
