But you guys are only doing between 50 to 70 on an 1/8th scale track.

If you want to see speed to to the regionals in Virgina this year my whole club is going. Thats fast racing.
75mph!?!?!?!? Are you sure?

75mph is like 110ft per second. So if my math is right (or this computer's math anyway) it would take 1.63 seconds to travel a 180ft straight...and that's assuming it was already doing 75mph at the first inch of the straight. I mean most people will say that a fast 1:8 scale will do about 70mph in 3 seconds. Wow, that Impact should win the Worlds.

just my 2 cents worth.
I'm running one and I LOVE it.

Their service is great. If it's broke, contact them and they will replace it!

Mine dropped my temp a TON and I'm able to lean it out more - I only lean it just a touch and make sure there is still oil smoke - and it just is a NICE sink!

boomer, its my fault that the car over turned and the heat sink broke into half, so i'm not gonna request for a new one. its human error.. but its really weak in construction, my nova heat sink took many blows and its still one piece with a bent fin.

yes it took the temp off.. i agree!!! but its got to be built tough!!
one roll is all it took for the head to come off. :<

so no more fancy heads for me.. i'm sticking back to the purple stock head.

cheers.

fuse01-I race for Crazy Nut and I know Dave would much rather you send the head back to him and he'll replace it than to have you not satisfied. The first run of the heads was made different in that it didn't have as much bracing at the bottom and people were breaking them. This has since been fixed and is no longer an issue. Drop him an email at [email protected] and he'll get you taken care of I'm sure.

Yeah, The new head design is nice. I will say this though, I have 3 of the original heads and I have not broken one yet. Dave's stuff is awesome. "The Best Head You'll Ever Get."

better.
Thanks for the compliment, my dremel is sometimes like my right hand. I'm the guy to come to for exhaust mods, heat sink work (electric or nitro), chassis work, ect.. I did at least a few TC3 nitro rack conversions & battery relocations this year, and I must have done exhaust systems for every NTC3 driver at our track last season. Nothing quite like making or modifying something yourself. If I had the right equipment and the know-how (not to mention the time, married with 4 kids & a 7 day a week factory job on midnights no less) I would attempt to do engine work. I'm presently spending every extra minute I have convincing my wife to let me race, and my youngest son to join me.

Hey all I was wondering if any of you guys race in FL, at Superior Hobbies? What kind of gearing do you all use for their size track? I am using a OS cv-r .12 w/ 21/25 50/54.

Thanks all, Jason

Could you start a ntc3 with a pull start engine on a starter box?

mosh- have you seen one in person? The workmanship is unreal. Dave does an awesome job with his heads and you wouldn't even believe some of the aluminum wheels he's made. He's a great guy and I'm proud to run his stuff. Drops the temp and looks sweet. What more can you ask for?
