Brandon- Congrats on your recent deal with Duratrax. I hope you have as much success with them as you have with eXpress.


I can just see it now......



"Brandon Melton TQ the Starter Box Worlds with his Duratrax Dynamite Stick packs" and "with a blistering spool up these packs are also keeping his OS engine in the 400 deg. operating Temp between flame outs, that Mr. Melton prefers" LOL

Good and bad weekend. Yesterday burned up a throttle servo and jut didn't have a good day, with some wrenching and advice, was able to finish 4th today.

Brandon, sounds like you need a JR9000T. If you can set up dual disks front and back you would need less pressure to stop from 90MPH My ACE 1315 is just fine though.

IT WAS A JR 9000T!!!

I put in a 9000s and it's fine now. You would think 320 oz. would be overkill, but who knows. I have read online where people have had alot of trouble with the 9000T, may have been a bad batch of motors. I took it apart and it has no broken gears, and it was makinga grinding noise before it quit all together. And the end point on the brake side was only set to 32% .

Your not the first one to blow a 9000T, so far this year I think I've seen at least 3 or 4 go at my local track...

Let me suggest the Airtronics 94357 for throttle. I used one for 2 years now in many long mains and have not had one problem.
