Wanted to give a shout out to Devin Patterson and John Gonzalez on there great efforts and Team work at The Reedy race of Champions. Devin went on to post P-4 on the grid for 17.5 A Main after all the heats were settled and the mains were all lined up. Devin fought hard during his mains to run into some bad luck and had to settle for 8th overall.. John just missed the show and ran into a issue in his main when a steering link broke in result of a DNF. A great effort by both...!!!!

Also a big thanks to all who ran Express product's....
BIG CONGRATS to Devin! The top 3 cars were awesomatix cars, so out of all the belt driven cars Devin's was #1! I also want to thank him. This was my first major race and he did help me out a lot, helping me make the Amain p9 in my first major race was a huge accomplishment for me. Love the motor. Ran the HT version. Im new to the 10th scale but know itll be looking bright. Thanks everyone!

Tag- Thanks for the support!! The KS motors are pretty good. Devin was a big help to me & others. Hope to see him again in future races. I ended up painting him his body for the mains.

Thx-John

Hey guys it was nice meeting you and working together at Reedy. I think we got it figured out now but just a few days to late. Sucks for me because the closest track to me is minimum of 4 hours away which means I had no track time to even try the new motors. Thanks a lot Gonzo for the body, I love it and will want more painted up for sure. Hope to see you all soon and keep in touch.

Devin

Sounds like an excuse! You could have been practicing in the Cul De Sac!

What's the recommended 17.5 motor for 2wd buggy? Boosted class, ROAR approval is NOT needed.
I assume I need HT rotor. What about Kiilshot vs. Ripper? Which one is better suited for boosted?

Both great motors.. If your going NO ROAR Rules the Ripper is always a great choice. Kill Shots are very close, But with limited data in Boosted on KS motors at moment ..I would choose the Ripper D3.5 being a proven motor .
