Thanks Tag! Had plenty of power all day. Yesterday's race really felt like a National event from the good old days. The competition was tight and intense. Happy to be able to put Express on top!

Hey Chance...

There both D3.5 Based motors with 1 diffrence, The Zapper has the 12.3 MM Broadband rotor installed which is good for all type's of racing. The Ripper has the 12.5 MM High Tourque rotor installed which is most popular at current time. The Ripper (12.5 MM rotor) is most used in Touring cars,Off Road,1C Blinky Oval spec racing .

What is the length of the sensor wire that comes with the zapper 17.5t? I found the length to be just enough, but I wanted to get a little bit longer for slack.

All items ship USPS Priority mail. Mail time is usally 2-3 days max. But, with Holidays we have seen a few 3-5 days. Right now info shows if you order before 9am Friday you should have delivery by 12/24, As per online tracking.
