what's y'alls thoughts on the Trinity DPD? I am still thinking of getting one, but I want to make sure that they are worth it and that's it going to work on the 4200's. Any other suggestions? I'm interested in seeing the new Integy Zero-Thirty or whatever it'll be called.

EA, YGM btw.

LOL, when I told EA I was rolling out at 1.6" he looked at me like I was nuts I think with the way the grip was and with the crazy voltage on the new packs, you have to gear lower to keep the motor from cooking itself.

EA- I didn't get a chance to talk to you before I left IIC, but I wanted to thank you for all the help you gave me. My motors and batteries were definately A-main fast, but the car wasn't there in sedan and the driver couldn't get it done in 12th

Ray,

I'm still sticking to my 1.84 RO. It was pretty fast last night. Can you say 10.8! You did say your motor had a ton of RRRR's though so that might have been it right there.

Later,
Jim

Between each heat I just take the motor out, spray it out with Motor spray without removing the brushes. I am a firm believer that if you remove the brushes you should either true and re-break in or true and replace the brushes. After cleaing it out, re-oil, break in and check the amp draw. As long as the amp draw is still 6+ amps then it should be ok for another run. If its less then its time for a rebuild.

You can get some info at www.team-mrt.com They are about the same size as a Quantum but have better on-resistance values than any other speedo on the market. They have 6 profiles built into them. 2 for stock, 2 for 19 turn and 2 for Mod. Each of the pairs one profile is a fixed frequency and the other is a variable frequency. The punch on them is great. No fans required, no 50.00 schoktty required and no huge cap...Just a small cap that easlily fits on top of the speedo. My first shipment should be in in the next few days. The price will be around 160.00 on my site.

Thanks. Just to clarify though, how do you break in the motor between runs (volts and time)?
