I've used Ballistic Novak at a race last year. But de'n I was never happy with!
Replacing then the Speed Passion v3.0 17.5 .. And I will never mea switch to another brand .. incredible power of the momentum and get cold .. wonderful engine!

LRP engine know I had problems with the ball before. Now I do not know.

but again I can only recommend Speed Passion! it is quality!

Check out Epic's Duo 2 motors.

In Particular EA's ones.

LOADS of bottom end grunt with loads of top end. And damn they are quick

Have been using tekin for while and they are great


But I think that they may be better on smaller tracks along
with the speed passion

I have just started using the duo2 and it seem to have more
all over

Most of the 17.5 afinalist seemed to be running the duo in the
resent oz nationals

Altough =flip= who was hanging out here a moment ago
got his hands on a lrp x12 and first test seemed promising
his car was lighting quick

Default motor timing

For the guys running the Speed Passion V3 17.5, what motor timing are you running? This is the first SP motor I have owned and I am not sure how to even adjust the timing yet. Any help is appreciated.
