I run my 9 on 7:1 outdoors - track has a 100ft straight.
Would run an 8 on about 7.25 with GP3700.

Damm...... seriously you dare to run checkpoint motor 8T @ 7.25 final gear ratio ? should check the comm often.......... What timing do you dare to use if you pick 7.25 final gear ratio ?

Well it is a bit colder here
Timing would be at the first mark (not a lot in other words).

They were suppose to be released 2/28. I ordered three for myself at my LHS so I'll find out by the end of the week if they really were released.

Default CHECKPOINT 19 TURN MOTORS

i have a order with tower since early december, i have tried to get a sensible reply to my many e-mails, but keep getting computer generated replys which always end in "Have a nice day"
I might have a VERY nice day if i could get my hands on a Checkpoint 19 turn motor "Mr Tower"

Wait till everyone sees the new Motor label for the 19t it is so awsome. I think it is the best motor label ever! Oh yeah, I am sure the motor it's self should be good too!

Hey Dizzle how about a pic?
