And how about the Trinity 4.5 in the Touring car? Is there a spot considered optimum to use?
I believe most of the temps people are posting are 6 cell other than the Oval guys. I've never had any stock/19 turn motor as hot in a 12th scale as a 6 cell TC OR 4 Cell oval car. Just not as much current draw.

I always trust the hottest number I can find on a motor. On the Novaks, that seems to be the center ring. Lower temps can be explained by the sensor seeing reflections from the colder room. Higher temps really can't be explained as fake.

Ran a duo 3.5 and IB4600's this weekend in oval and they ran great.

Thanks to Trinity for the great products and support.

Jim hasn't been on here for a while now, I think he said something about American Idol tryouts, you probably saw him, he was the guy that they sent back to get the hair removed. It does look like he traded in that speedo that he and Rick where bragging about though.



All in good fun Jim.
