They are supposed to release axles that will allow you to use your existing wheels. I am not sure if they will be included with the kit or not.

This question is actually for Casper (since I already asked Aaron last night ).

Casper, I noticed on your site that you said you've got two engines for your NT (Wasp and the NR whatchamacallitDrake(?)edition (CR12R2?)). How do the powerbands compare between the two? I've got an MT12 w/OS rotary carb right now, and except for the slightly peaky bottom-end, I love it. I'd like something like that, but smoother on the bottom (the track I race at is pretty loose). After talking to Aaron last night, I'm still undecided between the Wasp SE, whichever NR SE engine the Drake edition was, and the SE Sirio engine (all with OS rotary carb). What's your take?

Going with a side exhaust will make the motor smoother on the bottom end. I really liked my wasp as it produced good power but it just didn't last very long. Orion has stopped producing the wasp and is supposed to be working on a new engine soon but for that reason I would not recommend a Wasp. The NR (I have the CX12R2 from Nova Rossi, not the trinity Drake edition) All I can say about the Nova Rossi is WOW! I have done no mods to the motor (no porting and stock rotary carb) and this motor is FAST. It is controllable though which is a nice feature. They people running the Sirio like them but I have no experience with the motor. I have nothing but good things to say about the nova rossi engine. I would highly recommend the Wasp for power but I only got about 2-3 gallons through it (same with my buddies engine) and the sleeve was shot and the carb leaked. (I have since rebuild the engine and put on an OS carb and it runs strong) I would not get one though since they are discontinued. The wasp has a little more bottom I think then the NR but the NR finally broke in after about 15 tanks and has been a rocket since.

Thanks for the info. Where'd you get the NR from? I've had good luck with NR engines in the past, so it'd be nice to stick with what I know. (Sorry Aaron )

Cool

Dave - It's all good! Whatever works.

Troy - Helping me? Or just TWI? haha

Rod - I love the GTX..it's a great ESC

rcdude - I've always heard 2.55 and 2.41. Being off a few hundredths of a gear revolution isn't going to kill you..

SoFast-NT - What Casper said!

Hey aaron-
What would be the recomended pinion size on a bk2 for a stock motor? Probably a P2k2


Also is it true that for mod motor it needs 10 over? 13 turn motor run a 23 pinion? and is the mf2 8 over? thanks

I have been starting at 8 teeth over for both the buggy and truck, and then making adjustments from there.

For a P2K2 in a BK2, I'd start at 21/78 or so.

Ahh. This rain is disappointing me. I just finished building and getting my B4 ready to drive on the Palomar track this weekend. But doubt I can now, ecspecially with this rain now.

Also what other tracks besides SoCal and FamilyHobbies are there to practice here? Any lesser known places to drive at?

www.titushobbies.com is a cool little place in Riverside, but that's about it when it comes to indoor tracks around here.

There's not much in San Diego County, that's for sure

waterblast, it would be my advice to you, that as you venture out and take on a handful of different tracks, that you double check them against track directories (like the one in RCCA) to make sure that the good tracks are listed. that way once you determine your favorite area track and your favorite number 2 backups, the next guy can find it too!

A slight departure from the normal R/C jargon but this was particularly entertaining.

The huge rain storm we've been on the bad end of here in southern California closed down my college today..power outages don't make for good learning experiences. Now imagine over 6,000 cars trying to leave the same parking lot, while it's POURING rain..and I parked about 1/4 mile away.

My friend Alex and I decided to save our dry clothes (well, as dry as can be for a rain storm), stripped down to our boxers, stuffed everything in our backpacks, and ran out to our cars amidst the cheers and honking of EVERYONE..you could see people in their cars laughing..it was great fun.

Did I mention how much I love college?

Two guys running in the rain in their boxers was not a visual I enjoyed Aaron! LOL
