You can advance the timing in a 12T 550 by jamming a screwdriver in and twisting the end bell a certain way. That is not legal, so why would this be any different? If it's just proper break in and prepping, why can't you just do this yourself?
You can do it yourself. The only difference between someone buying a RED Dot and doing it themselves is cost.

You can buy a dyno, try different lubes, com drops etc.. and find the right combo to get a better motor. Anything that's done to a red dot you have access to, so how is it cheating?
It's a stock motor.

So if I take a box stock motor and break it in in water is that cheating too.

Oh wait, see someone in the pits lubing the bushing, that must be cheating also. I don't remember my box having lube in it.

Did you remove the crappy plugs and solder the wires directly to the motor? Cheater.

I have read through this thread and i do not see anything that is illegal. There are lots of things that people do that give them a edge over another racer in spec class that are perfectly legal.

The only way that you would have a perfectly even spec class, is if you made everyone buy the truck that day at that venue, and only race that one, and even then there are things that you can do to give yourself a little edge.

Questions??

I sent an email to [email protected] and the email says...

Hello Doc,

I want to buy one of these Red Dot Slash Motors- 12T Titan 550 for $45.00 plus shipping.

Can I pay you with my VISA Debit Card? Or do I have to use PayPal?

Thank you, WWD.

There is only 1 "SPEC" class. Club or raceway hands out the engraved motors, at registration, and collects them at the end of the day. Anything else will allow motor cheaters.
Having said that, I WANT TO TRY A RED DOT!
