The biggest problem with these speedos is it gives more top speed that anyone can notice. A one second advantage down the straight is easier to see then the three seconds the same guy gets in the infield. This is why your "normal" driver thinks this is his missing piece to his racing puzzle. You all know the type driver. When in doubt punch it even if you miss the apex by three feet.

Also my threat of a ban was more to chill out the arms race a bit. I don't want to tech all this stuff. I prefer the honor system.

...Hey guys I just bought some new Nike AirMax running shoes and I shaved 4 seconds off my 40 time now I run a 4.3 40....


I believe this issue is covered in the rules"it is up to the race management to even the racing out via suggested gearing changes."....Just remember what you have laying around R/C wise isnt always what the next guy has laying around...

For what its worth... last night in Omaha here was the order of finish.... all 21.5's because that's all we run... not by rule but by choice.

1st.... FK04
2nd... TA05R
3rd.... TA05 IFS R
4th.... FK04
5th.... FK05
6th.... XXX-S G+
7th.... FK05
8th.... XXX-S G+
9th.... XXX-S
10th...Sprint 2

Most are running some sort of Novak speedo... two tekin RS's... one speed passion... one losi.

Cuda XRay 009 4cell/17.5
Mustang Tamiya TA05 2s/21.5
Cuda XRay 007 4cell/27t

wow, I just realized of the 6 legal camaros there, only mine was in the A...

Oh, and to whomever said FUN was missing missed the part where I said I kept my position because the opponent was laughing too hard to drive well - he was in a battle with someone else and they were having their own kind of fun

Almost everybody. . . . I'm running a 27t Trinity, an XRS, and a 6 cell stick pack. I hope to be be switching eventually though.

Sorry my sarcasm didn't come through. Just sick of people saying 27t/4cell can't compete instead of saying my old junk I don't want to work on can't compete.
