Got to love brand loyalty! Reality is there's only a couple of ways of building a 3 phase motor and only one way to build a ROAR approved motor, the Novak way, since they came up with the rules!
These motors are very simple and many share the same supplier so you're not going to get any incompatibility issues with a ROAR sensored motor!

Now you will get a performane loss on the budget motors (Erasers/EX's etc), but between the main ones you won't notice, as Nick said.

yes i am sure this is true....

but when LRP drivers are testing the motors i am sure they are using all lrp gear to to fine tune them...

And where have you been hiding Mr T, Roman has been getting cocky with out you after him..

Can't argue with that kind of brilliant logic

If I like what it looks like on the outside (body) and Trent likes what it looks like on the inside, does that make me superficial and Trent deep and meaningful?

Can anyone tell me where I can purchase Associated B44 wheel nuts, have searched the web and only get strange non locking wheel nuts.

We desperately need some

Wing mounts and front shock tower is a good start, get the carbon one as the plastic one tends to pull out the front ball studs.

7 front arms in 3 months, I have 7 spares in my box with 2 more on their way. I reckon it's 50% bad luck and 50% the aluminium front hinge pin brace. But I haven't broken any front bulkheads since fitting the hinge pin brace,

Also, the guys that test the LRP motors also win competitions where chicks in little shorts and high heels give them very big trophys. That's not about to happen to either of us in the near future, so I say go with what's available and affordable. Trinity is by no means a lesser brand by the way.

Go with Mr T's advice.

Also, anybody noticed how all the trophy chicks in the magazines look like they are someones GF or sister who was roped in at the last moment. I was going to use harsher language but I didn't want to offend ny trophy chicks following this thread!

No, will go to AF, but was ordering on Sunday and spend hours looking for them, should be ok for this weekend, really need them for challenge, cannot have wheels falling off.

PS Ian has had a look at the ST Ives track, he is not sure what tyres are going to work, the track is way behind being ready.
