The rotors are also the same ones that were used in the revtech's so all the optional tuning rotors you already have will fit and are ROAR legal.

So has anyone tried the lot of all the tuning rotors from trinity?

12.3-High RPM
12.3 Wide Power
12.3-Hi-Torque

12.5 High RPM
12.5 Wide Power
12.5-Hi-Torque

??? Just curious on thoughts and how they actually changed the motors? Assuming you have a rather large outdoor asphalt track. I think the stock D3.5 is good but just curious on how you feel it would benefit anything or help out or hurt.

The tack that the nationals are on, is well something that most have not seen... If they run the layout that has been talked about, it will make the straightway around 265 feet of 100% full throttle.

Also given that a good bit of the development of this motor was done on this track should give it a leg up....

The top 2 from last weekend had completely different gearing.. One on RevTech with a FDR of 3.65 (box stock motor) and the other had a Duo 3.5 (not box stock) running an FDR of 3.1. The difference was car setup.... The bigger question is what is best for your car setup and driving style... Do you point and shoot, do you rush the corner and crank the wheel, are you Mr. Smooth? All this will change what works best for you...

Well considering you race with me whats your opinion on my style? I'd like to think I'm Mr. Smooth for the most part but that probably isn't the case.

I will have to watch you next time... When they have the computer connected, stand by it, and take different lines, the result will be your lap times... They say practice makes prefect. I will say Prefect Practice makes prefect.... And you can gain a lot more with prefect practice....

So what's the best motor if you drive right to the apex and crank the wheel? Smooth is boring.

4.5... If you are point and shoot you will need a stump puller to get off the corner.... But you will risk getting smoked on the loooonnnngggg Straighway...

You know it.... Or should I say that the test 13.5 that has been running from time to time at our track is the same color.....

Rumor is they selected this color, because when you run one of these motors, it will be the color of your competitors BALLS...
