Just wondering if it will be enough...I'm currently running pretty mellow 14 and 15 turn brushed motors and want just a little more power than what they provide. Don't want crazy amounts of power because the tracks I race at are outdoors, usually very dry, and rough and rutted from all the nitro cars crashing, so there's not an abundance of traction....
I've been wondering that myself. The 6.5 sounds good, but would the 7.5 be a bit easier to hold on to on the loose stuff. Anyone tried one yet?

Putting the piston to 1/4 from the top keeps you from wasting so much oil. After awhile you get pretty good and can hit it first shot.
I personally drill 1/16" hole in the top at an angle like the yok caps. Then find a small phillips screw and screw in the hole. You've just made your own trouble free easy to bleed, bleeder tops. I find the screws in a package in the shelf building section at the hardware. Smallest ones you can find. Won't work with aluminum tops.
Thanks.

I tried a 7.5 in my 4WD but it wasn't enough so I bought a 6.5 and it's perfect. They are SUPER SMOOTH and FAST. Should be enough to get you going in mod for a long time. Mine is two race days old an would be willing to let it go reasonably cheap!!! PM me!!!!

He said that the 7.5 wasn't enough for 4wd... 4wds need like 9-11T depending on the track to get going...

For anyone interested I am taking some time off racing and have the truck mentioned below up for sale http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthread.php?t=114820

Attached are pictures of the completed truck, and below are the parts that made the final cut along with my personal price/performance rating:

- Robinson Racing Super Lite Aluminum Pinion - B+
- Team Associated Composite/Plastic Chasis - A
- Team Associated Factory Team Battery Strap Thumbscrews - A+
- Yokomo Bleedable Shock Caps - A+
- Lunsford Titanium Quick Tune Shock Mounts - B-
- Lunsford Titanium Screw Kit - D (price is not worth benefit & no matter how careful you are you will strip at least 1)
- Lunsford Titanium Turnbuckles - B
- Lunsford Titanium Hinge Pins - B
- Lunsford Titanium Front Axles - B+
- Trinity Light Weight Slipper Plates - C- (No weight savings, but they look cool)
- RPM Black Gear Cover - B+
- Acer Racing Ceramic Nitro Pro Series Diff Balls - A+ (smoothest diff I ever built)
- Acer Racing Ceramic Nitro Pro Series Thrust Balls - B-
- Acer Racing Ceramic Nitro Pro Series Ball Bearing Set - D+ (a lot of key bearings not in kit)
- Team Losi Titanium Ball Studs & Ball Cups - B- (great but expensive for ball studs, hex screw is nice!)
- Racer's Edge 0 Degree Hard Anodized Rear Hub Carriers - A-

I will probably add the MIP Shiny CVD's eventually and I am still unsure where to mount the personal transponder. Now onto my next project!

oh ok... my bad... anyone has any gearing tips regarding a novak 5800 setup? i'm using 20T/81T in stead of the recommended 22T/81T... feels good... but will this hurt the esc? was mildly warm after about a 3-5 mins of play...

I just picked up a set of Lunsford Ti turnbuckles (p/n 2005). What would be a good set of ball caps/ends and do I need to replace the ball studs?

I was just wondering if anyone is running brushless in a B4 for mod classes, and if so what are you running?

Cheers!

I run a novak 5.5 and it is awesome. I'm thinking of going to a 6.5 because the 5.5 is a little fast for me and the track that I race on. Never had a problem and I actually run two heats in one battery sometimes!!! (3600's)

I run my B4 with 5,5r GTB with the transmitter turned back on the POWER !! because a 5,5r in a B4 is insane for the track that i run on .
Yeah same with me i run 2 heats with my 4200 and then i need to run it empty on the parking lot
