Any hints on what 23-turn laydown motor we'll be running in GT1? Is it the RR or the RZ?

Is there really even a difference besides the sticker?

Well I did something today I've never seen done before...

I was out testing...Car worked horribly...par for the course lately...

But...

I had a brush break off of a black can motor. I'm like "WTF, I don't have any power"...then I see the brush and tab sitting on my pit table. sigh.

So.....What were you doing, Gary? Trying to tweak the springs to help keep your super trick motors pull less than 1.9 amps?

Dude, it had 3 runs on it. I didn't even break it in, I just tossed it in the car. If I would have been playing around with it, I would have at least been like, "Ok, so that's why it happened"...

My son Nathan was practicing with a black can Thursday indoors in a mini and came off with the motor at 220+ degrees. Can you say "Toast".

Was at Aliso saturday and the setup that worked at 10:00 was very bad by 1:00. I strongly suspect the heat. It is unusual for the setup to dramatically change due to heat? Running a Mini M03 with 60D's.

No I think the temp went from 80 - 100 from 10am - 1pm so I would expect the car handling to change dramatically. What is your setup like? There is no other choice to run except the 60Ds really unless you go with treaded tires

I was using the setup off the TamiyaUSA site that Beale posted and it works really well in just about any temp.

A bit off topic, do you guys frind GT1 or GT2 more fun? I have a MSX I wanna get running right for next season (praying they don't release a new belt car by next season). Just wondering what people find to be more fun.
