a profile in 27T and 19T won't cause your motor to smoke. improperly gearing it will (i know.. ive done it. MANY... MANY... times.. )

yes you can use it in 19T, your motor will require more maintenance (cutting, brush wear, etc). i suggest you drop the entire profile 5-7 stages if you are just practicing. on race day... then crank it up

In a 1-12 scale running stock how much will the frequency really change comm and brush wear? The reason I ask is because I just started playing with my VFS-1 and PC Interface and was wondering what to expect if I use low frequency settings.

Robert will correct me if im wrong on this one.. but the Masami VFS has a Mod 1/12th profile while the Hara Twister comes with a Touring Sedan Mod profile.

i cant really put a gauge to it... but you will see a big difference with a profile thats 10-12 stages apart. im going to have to try this next time i head to track so you guys can see noticeable differences

Found this at Fry's for $14.99. I know it's cheaper online but, I couldn't wait . I just had to download the drivers from the company's website then it worked like a charm!
