you will never win a race with tires tall. believe me cut them down to 41.5 and you will feel the difference in speed and handling( you wont be cheating ether.

you will never win a race with your tires that tall. if you cut them down to 41.5 your car will handle better and run faster. ( and you wont be cheating)

Damn thats a lot of foam!! Might as well not even bring out a truer!! hahaha Run grey lows and start at 41.5 to 42. You'll get 5-6 runs on a set.

Technically yes. The 10.5,13.5,17.5 are though the 21.5 was never submitted because the cost involved isn't worth it for the smaller market compared to the other motors. That is supposedly the reason anyway.

The punishment is death. I don't think it matters in mod. If you are trying to hide the purple and black theme in 17.5 class I think it matters since they are illegal.

I just picked up a used Revtech R-power 17.5 motor for my son to race in the spec class at our local track. Could someone please PM me with some setup info along with the FDR for this motor?

We race on a medium, tight high traction clay track.

Hi everyone, does anyone know what is size of screw that holds the sensor board ring to the backplate on D8 ? Philips head. Looks like 1mm but I am not even sure if they are metric or standard.
I bought used buggy with that motor and found out that two of the screws came out and were just sitting inside the motor getting chewed up by the rotor. Hopefully no damage to the stator wiring.
Thank you.

Well looks like Trinity doesn't care about customer service. No response to email, no tech support number on the webpage. Good thing there are other companies that support their products.
All I need was to order sensor board screws. No luck. Guess I will have to glue the sensor board to the back plate and when it dies replace it with motor from company that supports it. Tekin or Hobbywing.

Running 7.4 lipo 21.5 1/12 in Japan. What's a good timing setting?

I might also try this motor in my 7.4 lipo 21.5 F1.
