Alright guys, I have changed my motor choice. I want to run a Novak Ballistic 8.5. Should I start with a 24T pinion?

I run a 23 on my X12 7.5 there at Mohr and my temps are good (LRP TC ESC) and it has a ton of power, make sure you open up some holes on the body though. Also I think the fan helps keep the temps down quite a bit on this thing as well. I just got my Ahsari (sp?) body in before the weekend so I'll have to get that fitted up.

Reap, you still painting?

You know you can always dial down the power as well, you know....if your scared

Tekin electronics can handle the heat... And SS buggy is paid for track time.... When there is 15 heats of SC truck to suffer through this winter you'll be wishing you were running 2 classes as well.

You know, a little white/pink/blue. I have a body painted for my RB5 that I want to match. I'll send you a pic so we can discuss how danger needs to go back to running losi's

Hi,
Saw that you are in Denver. Is there a good directory of all tracks in CO. We will be moving up in the Denver area next summer. I run both nitro and electric.

BTW, I was running a Novak 6.5 Velocity R with a GTB ESC. Change out ESC with a MMP, running with 23T. Did not last more than 8 minutes without thermoing. My body is swiss cheesed out. I changed out the 6.5 to a SS10.5 running with a 24T and she finally made 12+ minutes running wind sprints out front, so it should be good for 10 minute mains. ESC temped at 186 and motor 162.

Thanks,
Tom

Blk springs all around
45wt front shocks
35-37wt rear
stock pistons
Proline suburbs MC compound front and rear
10k front diff
5k rear diff
wide 7'' JConcepts wing
stock shock and roll center positions

Im still experimenting but a team driver gave me this setup and it worked VERY well. I have changed the front to 7k oil and drk greens up front but as a base youll love it. Setups in general are one of those things you have to do a lot of trial and error on. But this setup felt good and I changed 2 things that I haven't even tested yet. I may just go back to what it was normally.

Cool. let me know how it goes and what feedback u get. Im just having issues with heat. Im running an 18t pinion with randys setup on the tekin but it still seems a bit hot. I might need to run a 19 like his setup suggests. Ive cut holes in the body's front and rear air vents but I dunno what else to do. It may also have been that the day was hot in general and being that theres no AC indoors it may have aggravated it more.

Any1 here try the team azarashi body? I seems cool with that undercover but I feel as if it would create heat if the chassis was covered due to it being aluminum. but the design looks pretty cool.
