wog

This book is no longer published. one of my staff used to work at Traford publishing. there not printing this book cause there so far back loged on much larger projects. Last I heard they were 5 weeks behind. they were 3 weeks before my employee left. He was supposed to print me about 12 copies before he left. but never got the chance. He has also just recently got tranfered to another terminal. So, he can't even ask his old co-workers to print them.

Maybe try in a year or so. they might beable to print one then.

I have this in my head for some time now. Why is it that Trinity is the only company that have a decent stock motor? and Why would other company that make stock motor would come out with a stock motor that is inferior to the Trinity brand? they spend all the time to make a stock motor and in the end it is not up to par with the motor that most racers use which is the Trinity brand, I am in no way a Trinity or any brand sponsor racer I am just a regular guy that buy his stuff for the LHS. It just don't make good business scenes to take the time to make a stock motor and then market the product and it is Inferior to the brand that most racers use. Can some one explain why other company like Reedy, Core and any other company don't put the time in to come with a winning stock motor other than Trinity? isn't stock racing the most popular in RC world?

That is a easy one ..



Trinity will sell wholesale to almost anyone , which makes it impossible for company's & racing facility`s to compete against...

They can`t sell stock motor`s for the same prices because of overhead & costs...

So no wonder....

Default motors

Hey guys got a question, Anyone find a better way to polish stock motor bushings. I believe Big J's method was to put an old arm in a dremel, at least thats what I've been doing. I'm really not totally happy with it and it does wear your dremel. Anyone have any tech secrets for a better way.

Thanks all

Craigger
