where are you guys getting these 30,000 rpm stock motors? someone mentioned a P2K2 a few pages back that was over 30,000. the ones i have seen say like 18,000 or maybe 19,000. even monsters and binarys are only up about 23-24,000.are you running 6 cell packs? even then i am not to sure about 30,000

I have a Trinity Revenge of the Monster stock motor with the trailing edge of the brushes cut back.

Bushes have been polished with brasso as have armature shafts.

On a freinds dyno it pulls 33,650 rpm on a 6 cell pack.

You are probably looking at a dyno run at 5 volts, not 7.2 volts. - different dynos run motors at different voltages.

A good monster on a 5volt dyno should run at about 19-21k rpms.

just a few questions

ive noticed that the CRC 1/12th cars use alloy bodies for their damper tubes, does the IRS upgrade (for the RC12L3) use alloy damper tubes or are they plastic?

whats the difference between the associated RC12L3 axle, and the IRS axle you can get for the RC12L3?

whats the difference between running small and large diff rings? does one of them have an advantage over the other?

I was finally able to take my Corally sp12m out for the first time. I got the car second hand, so I ran it as it came to me. I seemed to have to do a lot of run, turn, go, rather than the smooth cornering I see the fast guys do. I know a lot of that is me but I also noticed the car was super loose and that may have been part of why I was driving that way. The car as he had it set up seems to have a lot of toe in to me. Is that normal. Anything else I should look at?

dontfeelcold the irs damper tubes are plastic
the irs axle allows for use of the big ring diffs which allow you to run more diff balls for smoother diff action.

I like the silva micro vcs shock - much better to re-build and the little plastic star retainer is replaced with a threaded nut which will never pop off.

go to kthobbies.com for it.

24601, surprised that you have littler rear grip. That is usually one of the car's strenghts. We generally suffer more with understeer. Toe-in, no don't usually run any at all. it is adjustable by the ball joints on the ends of the rods.
