Yes.
We ran these motors at the Protoform Cup last year with very good results.

The tightest corner at Steel City is as fast as the sweeper at our track. So I recommend Ralph Kramden gearing. Gear it to the MOON, Alice!

Does anyone have suggestions for a body on that large and sweeping of a track? For the 13.5 class.

You could win running a shoebox! Now the real question, is which car will be the fastest: A800, ARC, or Xray???? As far as bodies, I'd go with the normal JP8, but maybe try something with a little less downforce like the M410.

I haven't run at Steel City, just talked to some of the guys that have and they said it's very fast. Plus I've seen some videos on the Steel City facebook page.

Well, I'm partial to the ARC R11 for sure. But the A800 seems to have the lock down in the USA.
