Is this fact... Who has stated this? I talked with the owner of Trinity yesterday... No word of this was spoken. They just dominated a major oval outing with D3.5s and every motor was tested and found legal...

At the recent SWIGP on a 35 x 100 mildly technical track, most were around 80mm. I would start around there and adjust for your conditions.

Yea, and that announcement is from October. Specifically, they are doing spot checks on all motors, not just the Trinity D3.5.

I don't see them pulling this motor from the approved list, since they've already approved it once earlier in the year. Most organizations don't like to admit their mistakes, either.

Spurs were all over the place. I saw as low as 74 and as high as 88 tooth. Current thinking seems to be to use larger gears to move the motor forward in the chassis. You can over gear these in 1/12TH without frying them. Pro racers can run higher roll outs because they carry more speed through the corner. If you don't have that speed, you'll turn faster laps with a lower roll out because the motor will be able to pull off the corner better. A larger more flowing track will also need a higher roll out. You have to experiment a little and see where your best lap times are.

Two weeks ago people were saying they were announcing it last week. Last week it was this week...now its Jan 1st.

No offense but your not helping anyone by spreading rumors and propaganda on here. Unless you have a press release from ROAR stating the above it does not one any good to speculate and listen to rumors started by other manufactures.

I'm curious what argument and protests there were at the onroad nationals. I was there and it didn't see any of either there.

I agree with EA, there is no point is spreading negative here say. Trinity did their homework with this motor and its going to force the other manufacturers to up their game.

Not only all of what is previously stated. But with how much people love Roar right now which seems fairly slim. If they pulled the legality of the D3.5 motor there would literally be a giant uproar of the common person. I know so many people who are running this motor in off-road and on-road. People who play with these cars yet who wouldn't want to spend money on purchasing a new motor. Trust me with how the motors are performing and an approval with ROAR in the books. People would outrage at Roar. I would't worry about this motor too much unless your the competition and losing your business cause it runs faster and cooler.
