Thanks

LRP is always a grat deal... BUT TP chargers always been among best also.

Thanks and God Bless
Yes, Center 5th slash, With Boosted we run center slash and maybe 1 more track depending and work on gearing and speedo setting...Non timming we tend to run full to 1 notch less and gear to track.

After about two runs of practice in the sedan the locals were coming over to see what I was running because I was already a few tenths faster than what they were doing on there Wednesday night club race. I then sauced the tires up on the WGT and went out and made a few runs with it and noticed that I was turning lap times a few tenths faster than our local CRC factory driver so I was pretty stoked about that.

After the first Qual I was TQ in sedan and 2nd in WGT. In round two I held on to sedan and took over TQ in WGT by .5 of a second from Dave Ehrlich. In the third round I went from TQ to third in sedan and held on to TQ in WGT.

For the single mains I made it up to the lead after about a minute in sedan and never looked back. WGT i missed roll out and ended up second but I definatley had some horsepower ouf of them D3's.

Great job as always, That region is really tough up there. No less trying to keep Getchell in check...LOL Great job!!!!!

Thats because your great support and results right there...Yea I had a few sales recently from your area..You need to get with local shops so they can carry motors.

Yupper, Seems that sweet spot is a few teeth higher with D-3 motors. They really rock power. Blinky mode we see more motor timming motor likes best.

Congrats...If that was a shake down run I hate to be the other racers.

Headed to Dallas after work today for the February freeze race. Hope to see some of you guys there. If you need anything or want to chat I will most likely be pitting upstairs.

Wish me luck!

Well another good weekend of racing out here in the NW. We had race number 5 of 6 in the NWIC series at TimeZone II which is where the 2011 Carpet Nats will be held at next month. With the traction up it was definately a good weekend of practice.

Started out Friday with practice and both my 17.5 sedan and WGT were on pace. Saturday morning came around and I was TQ in sedan and carried it all the way thru improving each run. In WGT I started out a little slow, after the 3rd round I was 4th behind Dave Ehrlich, Brian Bodine (Slapmater Tools) and Andy Wells. In the last qual I beat the TQ by just over 4 seconds. So I ended up with TQ in both classes.

Sunday was the mains and everybody showed up with their game faces on. I had a target on my back. In sedan I hit the chicane and knocked me off of the top spot and came in with a close second. In A2 of sedan it only took 1 tap of the flapper to set me back with it being wrapped in the 1st two mains and I followed up with a win in A3 finishing 2nd over all. WGT was a little nerve racking. It was some close tight racing with any of the 8 cars able to win. Fortunately I was able to wrap it up in two.

Thanks for the Power Tag.

Great weekend in Hawaii as well. Ended up 3rd in 17.5 TC and TQ/1st in 1/12th scale. 1st time out with the TOP Rebel and it was very good indeed.

I'll be running 1/12th scale and WGT at the 2011 IIC in Vegas along with support racers Burt, Frank, and Bob.

Pan cars for Mike Kring??!! YIKES!!!

Burt, your car was looking real good once you charged the RX pack! Burt's eXpress motors and packs are running strong after a year plus!!

Hi Express Motorsports people
I recently got a Trinity Nemesis (orange) tuned version (express) 10.5 motor.
I got it second hand with no info on it.

What can you folks tell me about your motor? The seller said it was hand built by jhon tag is that true?! how much better is it then a stock nemesis?

Is there a PDF manual for it around?

Any tips on changing the timing and running it sensorless? How does it compare to your newest motors and other well known motors (like speed passion or duo)

Thanks for the help!

Default 1/12 scale advice

Just got one of these 17.5 motors the other day and ran it for the first time and I think I'm just way way off on the RPM range on my RS. I didn't want to work it too much right from the beginning so I started very gingerly with an end RPM of 10,000 and start of 884. I know this is probaby totally off for after about 6 mins., came of at 95 degrees. I didn't have the timing advance or turbo cranked way up at all, I just wanted to see how it would do. Before I spend a day and a half trying to figure out the best configuration, I thought I would give you guys a chance to chime in. Gearing is an 81/46 with 45mm tires, somewhat flowing 48' by 80' carpet track. Any help would be great just to get me in the Ballpark......yknow.

i assume 1/12 since it is 45mm tires.

i have a setup on tekin's site. i would start with that. it is with 203, but still the same with 212. your current rpm range is way off, you will never get to 10000 with a 17.5 and 1s and just rolling the car is already running 500-800rpm
