If some of the Speedy Oregon boys that have raced at the Hangar can chime in I'd appreciate it

When I ran up there on the opening night I ran both the ripper and zapper. Both have good power but I think the ripper will be a better all around motor.

I do believe Tag has them in stock at this time.

Get one or a few ordered up......hopefully I will see you guys next weekend.

Let me know if you got any questions

Devin

Default Difference between Ripper and Zapper?

Hey guys just wondering if anyone can tell me the difference between the Ripper and Zapper? Which one is recommended for 17.5 blinky TC and 17.5 boosted 1/12 scale? Local track is medium grip ozite carpet, about 80ft X 45ft. Estimated rollout for an Xray T3 '11 and 1/12 would be appreciated as well.

Thanks!
AL

Hey Al,

You'll want the ripper for TC, start at a 3.73 gear (92 spur, 48 pinion) and 23 deg timing. For 17.5 boosted 1/12 I have no idea, and defer to Tag. Lol!

My track is about the same size and this setup has tons of rip the full 6 minutes.

Congratulations to Troy McKune on his TQ and 2nd place run at Top Gear Hobbies in Portland with his new Express D3.5. Good luck this weekend at the Showdown!

Cool thanks Robbie, I did end up getting both Ripper and Zapper in time for a big provincial race we had in my area last weekend. I can tell these motors are awesome, noticed more than a few on cars in the pit area. I know I'll be successful once I nail down the right setup for each car.
