Ok, that's what I thought, but wasn't sure because both names were so similar. Thanks for the help.

I can't see all four of them being perfect naturally balanced arms when they are sold as standard replacements not even pro spec arms.

Ive bought 3 new Binary pro motors which are epoxied balanced. But ive noticed only one is balanced and the other two are not. does this mean there balanced enough to not be epoxied?

I just checked the ROAR web site and nothing is said about a rule change. Rule 5-26 says NO ball bearings in a stock motor... did I miss something?

Hi Ottoman...long time no see (or hear)

Just upped my ROAR membership and got the 2004 Rules with an addendum sheet.

Per the Rules Correction to 5-49, ball bearings only applies to 19T "Super Stock" which some people seem to call "Stock" in some areas of the US.

When narrowing brushes for more timing, do you tack from the leading or trailing edge?

Trailing for more rpm, leading for more torque.

Bearings are not legal for stock, it specifically says all 27t stock motors must be bushing motors......

However, its a stupid rule, since bearings are so cheap now.....all it would do is save racers money by allowing bearings in stockers, not to mention it would make tuning a stocker MUCH more simple.
