Bob - I know how it is to be rusty. I'm not at the track as much as I would like, but I still have fun and that's what it's all about I didn't do to bad at Horsham...low 10 second laps and mid B main. Just gotta keep the trigger pulled and now I have my car setup so I can do just that and not lose control in a corner.

well if you took 10 to a main I would have been in the C, Mike the A and Fred the B. Im just not used to being in the C or D LOL. I guess it wasnt too bad I mean It was the second off road race in over a year and the first race period in about 5 or 6 months.

Awww, you liked running there

Guess you'll need some practice to get back to the top of the heap

I gave all my mod motors to fred yesterday to rebuild. I couldnt believe how bad of shape they were in. I dont think I used most of them in over a year in a half. I thought I had a 15-2 in the buggy and when I saw my 15-2 in my box I was like....ummm wait a sec. turns out it was a 12-4, no wonder my gearing was all wacky LOL.

That's why I stick to 19T Now running outside, i'd probably need to switch to a different motor

But for indoors, 19 works the best for me...If it wasn't for my driving, I could (would've/should've) have qualified better and finished better

my 12 was running like a 19. my motor of choice for buggy is 15-2. I usually never need more than that. If you properly build and maintain it you will have plenty of power.

Ahhh 19T is enough power for me especially off-road...Too many things can happen my my buggy will get launched in too many different directions
