Hey Paul, have you ever raced 1/12th scale?
If so do you have any pointers for somebody moving over from off-road?
Thanks for your time!
Sean

Imprsme: Thanks, all in all the week was still good. I just still need to get better with tuening nitro stuff.

IH8Racing: Hi Sean, I do race 12th scale but only maybe once or twice a year, the only advice that i can give is to make sure that you keep the car in pristine shape and replace any parts that may be in question. Their is not much to a 12th scale car so what their is becomes super important to maintane and make sure its perfect. then you should be able to tune the car with front springs, tires and camber. Hope this helps.

Hi Paul, hope everything is well with you.

Quick question, is the Trinity 17.5 duo being replaced with something new or is it just sold out to the distributors like Horizon and Great Planes?

I have been trying to get one the past month but seems to be on perpetual BO.

Thanks for the info and have fun!

oh and p.s. congrats on all of your past and future wins...

A-Ko...I am not Paul but the Duo's have been on backorder for a while. They will be in at Trinity next week. There is a new Pulse BL motor coming out towards the end of the year though. You can check Trinity's web site next week for the Duo's or I will have some as well.

Thanks EA for the info, the local HS did not know.
Should be interesting to see what the Pulsar is?

Thanks alot. Yup, im going to the worlds. I read this on Red rc also. I know that the perception of me being a team racer would lead everyone to beleive that i know what Xrays plans are, but its not always true. Apparently They do have some parts that they are testing for the up coming WC's, i have not yet tested them. i dont know what their criteria is for doing a new kit. I know that i am dancing around the question, but at this point i think that you know as much as i do, sorry.

Hi Jeff, how are you?. we do have a new line of brushless motors coming out (the Pulse Line), but i don't think that we are discontinueing the current DUO line. Yes the Duo's are hard to get right now and that is because they are so fast. I would try and continue to get the Duo motor because they are so good and because i dont know exactly when the new Pulse line will be released, I think by the end of the year for sure if not much sooner.
talk to you soon, paul

Hi, we normally run the Duo 10.5, 13.5 and 17.5 in the Middle tining position, for temp i think that 150 to 180 is acceptible but it depends on what class/motor you are running. honestly i dont run much stock class racing so maybe someone like EA could help us both out with this question. Thanks alot.

Hi, Paul.

I have a little question about the batterie's the top drivers using.
Its maybe a silly question, but latelly i was driving on Heemstede(Netherlands) with Jilles and i was amazed about the long runtimes he archieved, compaired to myself.
Some people said he drives reserved, but i managed to see where he used throttle and that is on more occasion full or almost full, but his runtime
remained long. What do i not understand.

Further:I wish that a surten Xray driver took the world's

Thanks in advance
Ed Ijzerman The Netherlands
