That's a top heavy question. Road course, oval or drag racing? Short, medium or large track? Tight and twisty or open and flowing track? Lipo or Nimh?

Dustin, you into on road racing now?

the 17.5 for on road compared to a 27T is close... for off road, not so much... you'll have more rip in the corners in off road but the 27T will hands down get ya on the straight.

How about we start with this scenario -

Touring Car, Road Course, Large Carpet Track (100x50), Open and Flowing, NIMH.

Going to try my hand at it. Going to do the region 5s and asphalt nats at least and was wondering what setup to buy. I did not want to buy both but I will be running sedan and 12th

I don't know if this helps but the 17.5 runs almost as good as the 13.5 when geared right and timed correctly. Brushed stock has all but died at my track, but it is a viable option to say the least. I personally thing the 17.5 is faster.

I guess to take this one step further...who else besides Novak make the 17.5 bl motor and what manufacturer would you guys recommend if it is not dictated by any other rules with the exception that it has to be a 17.5 bl motor.

Thx, Mike
