I heard the reason the Blood Diamond is so fast is because they fill the case with ground up $100 bills.

It's apparently made from black diamonds. You all know you want it. If you can't afford it, deal with it and save up until you can. If you're not fast enough to need it anyway, it should be a non-issue.

The good thing with the Black Diamond when using it in modified is that you can run a milder motor to get a much smoother power band with the top end of a hotter motor.

I think Gm is the best, for stock racing the difference between the 90 and 120 is so little, that you can save some money and go for the 90!

The blue and red 9.5 turns GM brushless are the fastest also!
Use standard program 6 for maximum performance..

That means," If you have the money and you want a bad assed speedo, here it is!" While Im sure the AEBD is an exceptional speedo, right now I can find .3 sec/lap a lot cheaper somewhere else. But if I had the extra cash I would do it just because I like the shiny stuff.

I tried the motors from GM and the speedpassion was faster.

Tekin all the way. Best service there is plus updates are free!!

Speed of the LRP, GM and Tekin are about the same at the moment for stock and mod.

you obviously don't mind spending some money (T3) so it wouldn't hurt you to get the Advanced Electronics Black Diamond. You may want to do some searching on this because some tracks have banned it temporarily until it is more readily available (IT IS FAST!!!). It is also legal according to the sanctioning bodies.

If you can't run that or decide you don't want to, then a Tekin RS or RS Pro seems to be the hot ticket.

Search both of these and go from there. There is plenty of info on this forum covering both.

Hope this helps!
