No, I didn't mean you, not that you're any slouch. But, let's face it, you and I are babes in the woods compared to some of these guys. Figuring out what they are doing is not the problem. It's how that's the mystery. We may have to enlist Hercule Poirot to help us out.

It's a quote from Hercule Poirot, who was a fictional Belgian detective in a series of books by Agatha Christie set in the 20's and 30's. Played by David Suchet in the (very good) PBS series of the same name. His side kick was a Brit named Captain Hastings, secretary was Miss Lemon (she of the amazing wit). Good stuff.

Poirot believed that virtually any problem could be solved through the proper application of one's brain power- what he called "the little grey cells'.

Hi, doc. Didn't know you were a fan too. Probably just for the cerebral tho.

Don't know about that, but there is a 'method' to tuning these motors, and the next batch of Red Dot Power motors (yes, first and second in Mini at the Seattle TCS this past weekend!) is almost ready, so anyone who wants to "order" some should shoot me an e-mail at [email protected].

You definately cannot go wrong with a Doc motor! Super fast but with enough torque to get off the tight corners. Just wish I had enough driving skill to give Kody a better run for his money.

Thanks again for the great motor, Mike D

No, but it helps.

Tribo is no longer available. The Trinity red bushing oil works tho.

I prefer a light colored comm drop for cleaning purposes. Tribo can be great for some motors in some races in some applications, but a light colored drop cleans better every time.
