Default New B4

Recently I got a new B4 and was going to race in the novice class one more time before I moved to stock. But then I realized my car has a 17 turn motor which means I can't race it in stock.

I bought my car new so it has not been modified. So basically to race in stock I have to modify my car. Go figure.

I dont want to race in modified because I'm just a beginner to intermediate.

Im with the St Ives Racing club in Sydney, Australia.

Any ideas?

M8, you need to put a stock motor in, no choice there. Take a look at the for sale section on the Aus forums, I'm sure you can pick up a second hand motor quite cheap, or ask at your local club, they will help you out for sure.

Stock motor are cheap, as around in the St Ives thread, I'm sure people have stock motors in their toolboxes they'd part with.

What is considered stock there? I believe in some countries its 23 turn, over here in the U.S. its 27 turn. In any case I think you'll be surprised on how having a good stock motor will be as fast, if not a little faster than your 17 turn you currently run. Those motors included with the B4 kits are not very good for racing, more for playing around and bashing with. Just remember to pull out your manual when you change the motor, and re-gear it properly using the charts provided by Associated.
