Thanks John.

I've been sticking to my Monster, but I have a brand new Epic that I bought a couple of month ago and only used once. What a waste! Got to use it somewhere. Can't use it at RCCAR, although I've been seeing people using them... I'm not gonna say anything though.

what do u consider a medium sized track? if its like the track up here, 80 foot straight and somewhat tight turns i started my gearing around a 9.0 fdr with rubber tires and went from there

with the Hurricane GOLDs i ran purple+ and green - and it worked alright....i dont run those brushes alot though in stock only in 19 turn...they r probably the highest performance brushes i have used to date

yodace many people use Punam green + and Putnam blue -

At trackside, about a 75 foot straight, I run hurricane golds with red red, and gear the binary short, about 8.5 or so. The rest of the track and traction conditions also determine how you gear the motor, so does air temperarture! Keep that in mind also.

My dad was runnin the Binary Stock in his Losi and he wasn't exactly getting motored by anybody.....He'd motor me down the strait but I'd lead him past turn 2

I'm officially going back to the Core Stock for now.....Unless someone can get me a good Monster Stock for the price of a 27t pinion gear & a good set of 767's

BTW: Any news on the EPIC ROAR Legal stock? Is it just a re-baged monster? Any specs are appriciated

It's a monster can and endbell with a drill balanced binary arm. 4 less laminates than the monster stock.

Less laminates = more rpm.

Less Steel (lams) = Less torque.

It sucks Trinity is soooo focoused in bringing you the latest in mediocre RPM/no torque stock motors....

It seems that the motor doesn't have enough RPM to not get motored by others down the strait and when you gear it high enough, it burns up because it doesn't have the power to turn the gear.

Maybe its cause I got dud-Monsters but I still paid my $30 for a Monster....Bottom line: If they can't turn out a product consistantly, they aren't doing their best work, they suck...If I ever get the money that I wasted on Monsters back, I'll buy some race-tuned ones that way I KNOW they are good.

End Rant

Black Kat, try a Monster from Team Paradigm. You won't have complaints after that.

Yeah, and that's not even a 'Race grade' motor The ones you see on eBay are motors that didn't quite make the cut to sell as Signature Series stock motors.

There are always people at my local track that are willing to sell motors. There was one guy through the winter that was selling new mvp's and monsters for $10 each(he had about 3 of each). Really I find it hard to believe that somebody at your local track won't sell you a motor cheap. I got my monster(used a little) from a local racer who's pretty quick, great rpm and ok torque. I've been very happy with it.

I found that gearing the monster was much easier then gearing my mvp. At least when the motor has rpm you can easily see the effect the gearing has. With the mvp the motor has so much torque that you always have grunt off the line no matter what the gearing. I found that in some cases I had geared too high and 'dropping' teeth on the pinion gave me more rpm. Since the motor always runs hot that adds to the difficulty of gearing it...

If there was someone I'd probably hear about it....too bad....$10 is about my price range too

I'm gonna give the Core a shot....I think I'll race 19 though...I just feel unsatisfied leaving stock knowing I could post so much better results in stock than I have been....Meh, Blame it on Trinity
