Cut with a good lathe, new 767's you should be ball park as long as the motor isnt cooked. You sure its not your batterys?

Remember that others might not be outmotoring you, but could be driving smoother as well, or have better car setups. I have not been driving indoor carpet for very long, but have realized that keeping your momentum is just as important as having decent motors and batteries. If you need to let off for every turn on the layout, then you will probably be slow. Someone else that is holding their speed through a smooth line will appear to have a faster motor, when in reality that may not be the case. It might help to fiddle around with setups more.

Are you sure it's not your gearing? Or batteries like what was mentioned earlier? What class are you running? And what's your gearing and track size?

No the changing of shirts just made you smell better and by doing so messed up everyone's concentration....
Just don't put on alot of cologne cause mixed with paragon...people could vomit..>....>.>..>.>.> LOL.....
Just buy your horsepower Cain921
www.teameamotorsports.com Best monsters and IB cells out there....Plus a really nice guy and racer so he can help if you call him.
Cain also gearing is 90% of setup on the motor...
Cut the comm put in some F brushes.....(another plug for EA cause he carries them). Break the motor in at 2Volts for 400-500 secs....install and drive fast.
I don't know your track but here is a little helpful hint....
If your motor is slow on the strait (i.e. it gets up to full speed at 1/3 of the strait) than you need to got up a tooth or three....
If you are transitioning slow through the technical parts than drop a tooth.
You should gear so that your motor winds out about 2/3 of the strait...
That way you keep your tech sections competative while still keeping up on the strait...

what about brush combinations,,, using a hard high silver brush on positive and a softer and also tweaked(cut/slotted/drilled) brush on the negative along with a heavy spring on positive and a softer spring on negative.. would this do anything..

im also trying to find out why in my stock racing class the number 1 guy was 4 seconds fater then me overall i came in second.

my set up
p2k2
90/20,,, planning on using aluminum pinion
xxx lemans/trinity purple spring/positive
trinity 4504/trinity green spring/negative
fresh cut comm
