I'm out. That will be too early in the morning for me!

Who is willing to run the timing system for the next race? I don't think I'm going to be able to make it. Youngest has his Undokai on the 7th. If no one is willing, then maybe the Bracket style race can be ran. LMK

well aparantlly the titan 12t wasnt designed for donuts...so i suck at life and now need to get another motor. i was doing some research and they said that the slash can take the velineon brushless with no mods.

any input?

oh yea, also heard something about breakin your motor in while it is submerged in liquid for more hp gains. i looked around and saw others were breaking in there stock motors in water for about 10 seconds four times (four consecutive 10 seconds submersions @ 4.8V). any body heard or tried that?

RCP starts at 6, most guys are running a 13.5T brushless, some 17.5T...

I have a couple extra Slash 12T motors

The Slash can handle the Vel. but you can get cheaper/better stuff from Hobbyking.com, on the carpet the slash will have axle and outdrive yoke breakage...

you can break in the motor in the water no prob, but might as well go brushless for around 65....

Damn...that's how we used to break-in stock motors back in the '80s when I raced 1/12 scale! Nowadays with motor brushes precut, timed, etc I don't think that's the way to go any more. At any rate, I'm sold on brushless.
