I have a P2K2 Pro. Maybe I should have run that motor. that motor has a good healthy dyno readying of 31760 RPM.

We will hook you up with one of our P2K2 at our cost. Steve's been tuning motors lately. He's been learning from Big Jim. I think you will be happy with it.

Steve also has some MVP type motors that are even faster than my best P2K2. He pulls on me on the strait. Now, only if he can drive better...... I would start worrying when he starts to keep up with me in the infield.

TB01 chassis was built for rally mainly. So Evo will be a better choice if you want to race in touring class.

Even a totally hop-up TB01 is not the same as a TB EVo. One thing about the eVo is that you will need to be very careful when building or re-building the ball diff.

EVO was made for racing on-road. so if you intention is to race on road. Go for Evo.

TRF-Powered,

This is Steve. Slow Driver is incorrect in which motor I was running at SpeedTech. I was actually running a cheap Kyosho stock motor -- the Ion Storm Stock Motor. There is nothing special about this motor. My guess is that you need to adjust your gearing.

Also, don't worry about the numbers on your motor. Promatch racing uses a different dyno or method of testing and you can't compare their numbers to Trinity's. My MVP from Promatch has a max RPM 18235 and as Slow Driver said, the motor can pretty much keep up with his P2K2 Pro (it's the driver that can't keep up). Listen to what BigJim says, don't compare the dyno numbers from different dynos.

Be sure to come out to Tamiya on Saturday. It's always a good time. I'll have my TA04 Pro there with a good motor in it.

Hey Steve (Underdog),

so what's your final gear ratio?? I was running around 6.1 to 6.5. I think I will go down to tamiya this weekend. It should be fun.

TRF-Powered,

According to the rcracing.com site, I am running 5.36 (104/40). I couldn't find the car ratio in the manual, but rcracing.com says it's 2.06.

Tamiya should be fun. Hopefully we can get there before 10:30 a.m. Slow Driver has to be home by 1:00p.m., so we can't stay too late.

I noticed some you you go to the Tamiya track regularly. Do any of you know when the next fun race is? The last one was a blast.

i have a question on gearing....if i use...

-Big spur with big pinion,
-Smaller Spur with small pinion,

but both come to the same ratio 6.5,

is there any difference?.....will speed or torque be affected in anyway?
