My 21.5 in the F1 doesn't even break a sweat. I did grenade a bearing in a 9.5 with very little run time. The 17.5 in my SC10 is so fast, several people have asked if I'm running timing software.��

That would be good too, even if they are a copy of the Hobbywing esc's. 28$AUD for the 60 amp version (plus postage), cheap speed control that can use the Hobbywing software & programming box.

Cheers
Rob.

This really is great news! Now I need to decide if I sell my backup tekin 21.5 for USGT that I was going to use if someone complained about the Trackstar not being legal.

Lol nobody at Mikes really cares about legal motors, I think. I used a trackstar in 17.5 for a long time before getting a Team Powers motor.

I did this a few weeks ago. Mainly because in my state in Australia, we are finally joining the rest of the country and going to 21.5 blinky and 13.5 blinky. I don't wanna go slower (currently running 21.5 boosted), but the trackstar motors getting approval had something to do with it, so I sold my backup 21.5.

Default We're trying one

My son read this thread and had me get a Turnigy TrackStar 5.5T for his Losi XXX-S basher. We hope it woks out we've got a couple of heat sinks and a couple of fans on it, we're also running a Josh Howard kevlar belt :

What heatsinks are they & how are they attached. ?
Ive tried similar 3racing heatsinks , that were only held on by double sided tape.
They would fall off easily & get tangled up in the car.
