Have the black Exotek wheels been discontinued? I'm trying to locate a set, and it seems like the only ones left available are the white ones.

Out of stock, just like everywhere else.

That's why your 25.5 motor is so slow.

Just kidding, your tracks are just tooooo big!

My local track just installed the new CRC FT2 carpet and the first club race on it 1st and 2nd were t-bar Tamiyas. F104X1 1st and F104Pro 2nd. Ahead of Xrays and Exoteks. The F104Pro was mine and I really like how it feels on the new carpet.

At the Cleveland Indoor Classic, I understand that a F104WGP t-bar car took 2nd place in the A-main.

Hope this helps,

Mark

I'm building a 104 pro right now, Mark can you tell me what tires you were running and was it the kit set-up or something different?
Thanks, Paul

The ROAR 25.5 specs: http://www.roarracing.com/blog_post.php?pid=2246 .

The Sonic M3 25.5 motors currently for sale have a 12.5mm rotor (note the "273" on the shaft in the photo https://www.teamassociated.com/parts...tor_25_5_spec/ ), so they are *not* ROAR legal.

Presumably Reedy will fix this soon. It will probably be a running change (no change to the motor's part number) so if you buy a motor on the internet you won't know what you are getting. Eventually the old motors will all be sold off and it will be safe to buy sight unseen.

At least with the Reedy you can tech the rotor without disassembling the motor. For most brands this is not true. Rotor tech will be a continuing pain in the ass for clubs that adopt ROAR 25.5 motors.

Hi Paul.

Kit setup, w/ a TRF center shock w/ Xray 2.3-2.6 spring, 30wt oil. Stock t-bar (black). Pit Shimizu 573 (medium) front, 572 rear. 4mm ride height front/rear.

It was dialed on the new carpet.

Good luck!

Mark

Unless ROAR dictates that the rotor shafts are etched from the factory. Still an annoyance to remove the pinion to read the laser etching, but unless you have a laser etcher, it's almost impossible to fake.

Thanks Mark, glad I asked I was going to order soft compound for rear! My home track is 21.5 and I hope they keep it that way

I tried the 575 on the rear and it made the car push and wasn't faster. Put the 571's on the front and jthose put the car just on the edge of traction rolling. The 571/572 combo made the car loose.

Try them all for yourself, but the 573/572 was really good.

Just for fun I put on the original Tamiya kit front tires and my guest driver put the car on the podium with that combo. Of course, he's a little better driver than me so that might have been part of it too. But he really liked the balance with those too.

Good luck!

Mark

Been following this thread. Love seeing all your F1 cars.

Does anyone know if there is anywhere I can find an FGX kit unassembled? From a store or otherwise?

Thanks
