Trinity has ceramic bearings? Oh, I found them at the TeamTrinity website. Are all the balls in these bearings ceramic? Or, do they alternate ceramic and steel?

Get over the age thing. I was racing formula cars in SCCA and never thought I would make it either. And here we are...he, he...R/C cars are certainly friendlier to our bods.

Todd,

Hey at least you don't play pro football. At our age, we'd be suffereing from knee surgeries and who knows what else. Although the money wouldn't be bad...

The quicker way to chill.

You could always go with a Losi stick and a Trinity ball on top. Or vice versa. Enough of the old jokes My wife will get mad at me since she is older than me. The old, " if your old what am I?," thing. I do have an Aging Greysfully shirt though, if anyone wants it.

How do you like the Losi shock tool, Todd?

Default Gearing a Monster Stock

Hi Todd, I've asked this question on several different forums and keep getting different answers. I run a xxx-s on a mid size road course with a fairly tight infield. How should I gear the car when I'm running a Monster Stock (just bought one, haven't used it yet)? I'm thinking about starting around 3.7:1. I know you don't typically run stock, but any input you could give me would be much appreciated. Thanks.
