Nice run, Mark!

Today at OCS, I TQ'd and won 17.5 rubber and took 2nd in 13.5 1/12th scale.
eXpress HP was in full effect with Burt Hooker taking 2nd in 17.5 rubber and posting the fastest lap of the day!

Hey Craig..

I would suggest running Profile7, Motor timming on 7th Slash to start and 6.30 gearing. Watch temps first run about the 3 minute mark. If temps are good gain 1 slash of timming then start working on gear. But that should be close. Med tracks I assume were talking 160x80 range.

Hope this helps ,

Best of luck

Thanks John, I didn't see get to see your post before I went racing today but even with stock timing on profile 7 the thing was a weapon. So much torque and top end, I kept telling people it felt like a mod. The track I was running today was smaller than that, but next week when I test on the nats track it'd be at least that big or maybe even a little bigger.

Quick noob question with the timing slashes - on the can there is a single slash on its own then a space and 10 or so all together, do you include the single slash if counting to the 7th one?

Thanks again!

Express power was awesome this weekend, I forgot I was running a 17.5 it felt more like a 13.5.

Just wanna say Thanks to Tag and Schreffler for helping me get my Tekin RS and Express 10.5 Duo2 dialed in to take TQ and finish 3rd yesterday at the Halloween Classic in Pro Foam Sedan. I had no shortage of power all throughout the weekend, just some bad luck with under 2 minutes left in the main. The Express team did very well throughout the weekend with James Reilly winning the 17.5 Rubber main and several others making the A's in their classes. I know Karl Hoffmeister, Tim Vasas, Greg Dabrosky and Ron Goetter all had pretty good weekends and made the show. Congrats to you guys and anyone else I may have missed. Looking forward to the next big race together and displaying more Express Motorsports HP!

Thanks Tag, for the massive amount of power making it possible to take how the win in 17.5 rubber. Like Robbie said Express motor and a tekin speedo is a powerhouse combo. 11.5 - 11.6 out of a stock rubber car is just sick.
My 13.5 car was the same, great power, never an issue, plenty of power to put me on some really fast paces. I just made a couple of mistakes.

Robbie was spectacular All day in foam.
Schreffler and Larry "Duck" Fairtrace, great job in rubber and foam, you guys are my heroes.

The whole express team did a great job, I can't wait to race with you guys again.

Thanks again,
James

Express Motorsports - ALL DAY!! TQ by Larry and Robbie (and nearly James!) -- and James pulling through in the main. There could of easily been five wins for Express with Jason in touring, JoelV in 1/12, Karl in rubber, Goat in touring and TimV in touring. Amazing! Big thanks to everyone for their help this weekend.
