We race on a small, tight, blue groove (tapers only) indoor track, so they were the flat-wire arms. Crazy fast.

All I remember is Cavaleri and Amezcua having to get out of the throttle a little to settle the car pretty much every time they hit the straight! Good Times!

Orion/ Peak makes the V2. I'm more partial to the Trinity Camp, but V2 is a good motor.

my experience with a novak 5800 in a MF2 was poor throttle control. either the motor was solw-med- or fast. nothing inbetween. very hard to be smooth with.too much wheel spin cause the throttle was stepped and not a reostat.

I agree that a 16 to 14 turn would be more than enough to keep up with a 5800 on the straight and better in the turns.

59 bux for a peak vantage at stormerhobbies.com and same for Orion revolution. you can get mod versions or even a steenari edition. when it comes to stock i think the is only one name """TRINITY""". but Peak/Orion are miles ahead in the mods at the moment

I got a better price than that for a revolution and vantage, which basically free shipping too. If you want those and want to know where to get it, email me.
