I bought one from Trinity at the Snowbirds but I haven't tried it yet. I'll let you know how it is though.

I still have to work on the gearing for it. It did have a lot of torque out of the corners though, just didn't show on my laptimes because it had nothing on the straights. I'm going to practice this afternoon/evening, so I'll have more after today.

Built one up on Saturday with green springs and F brushes (filed trailing edge). On the dyno, it was the best stock motor I have ever built! More torque with the same amount of rpm as a Monster and pulling less amps than a Monster. All the attributes that Trinity said it would have. Raced it on Sunday in 1/12 scale and was impressed with the performance. On track performance seemed to be about the same as my best Monsters, but again the motor is pulling less amps. Less amps = less heat soak = more consistant motor at the end of the run.

Mine came with Red/Red springs. I also run 4 cell 12th and think the red spring on the negative is too much. I ran it last week at my club and was a little dissapointed to see no improvement (for oval racing) over my Epic Stock. I tried the same and different gearing too with no improvements. Maybe it's the springs. I left the stock brushes in there too. I'm not sure if they are worse than my usual 767's.

After testing with it some more today.. I absolutely love this motor! It does like to be geared higher, that is for sure. I built mine up with 767's, purple/red springs, polished the bushing, arm, aligned the brush hoods to the comm, etc. Once I got the gearing right, the thing came out of the corners great and just RIPPED down the straight. I'm tearing it down again tonight and building it up with some F brushes for tomorrows Main. Considering I normally get better performance out of the F brushes (though they wear a heck of alot faster), I can't wait to see what its going to be like!

Fuzzy,

What dyno are you using?

If it's a CE can you post some numbers?

Thanks

Greg

Thanks for the input. Looking forward to running it this weekend at my local track.

Happy Motoring!!
