James35 - the question is when.... If two years or more before we see it as a norm, across the board, that is my guess. I know we currently are seeing pockets in the US that are growing and others still watching... I also agree with you, get brushless down to a stock level so the new people can start with something that fun and reasonable.

Just announced today. Brushless will be allowed in modified for the one and only REEDY RACE O' !!!!! Of coarse it helps that Novak is one of the sponsors and don't forget Associated/LRP brushless system is also a sponsor!

That's great, now if others would allow Brushless in all mod classes, this would be a great start... I may have to buy another car for mod

if you dont have a temp gun do the finger test its rough but it works

hold the can to see how long you can hold it if you can get more then 3 seconds its not over hot anything under that is bad

you maybe using a 22 tooth pinion but whats the spur if you use a small spur and a small pinion your rollout will be high

most tracks ive raced on I use between 26 and 32 rollout for roar motors

you will want to use the gearchart rollout calc to find what works for you

here is a link http://www.gearchart.com/index.cfm?f...n=chart.create

Anyone have a final drive for the co27 at SoCal? They told me about 6.3 to 6.5 but it was slow. I did not have my temp gun though so i really could not tell you how hot it was. i really have not run stock there before so i dont have anything to compare to gearing wise. I know i need to cut it and i have some Trinity xxx brushes i was going to put in. I really have no experience tuning stock motors so please let me know if i am off base.
