not sure what you are saying - does it have too much steering, or neutral amount? what is the optimal body (other than the legacy which isn't tcs legal)

What I'm saying is most of them are a bit lose.
Even with the optional adjustable wing ,,, every one I've tried has lots of steering . Favorites seem to be the NSX for GT1 anyways.

Anybody know- definitively- what the silver can RPM limit will be for the Aliso race at the end of June? I know the Tamiya USA web site rules say 13K, but seems to me I read somewhere in the forum along the line that it was really going to be 13.5K.

People are asking me for motors and I want to make sure the ones I send them for this event are legal.

that md gt3 race gonna be scary fast. the motors may never run the same ever afterwards, but for 6min it'll be for newer folks a moment of disbelief seeing such spd out of a motor that 'comes with the kit'

I have a Red Dot Motor that is virtually new right from the Doc himself.
It spins aproximately 14.5kRPM and is availaboe for $40.00 shipped to the continental U.S.
Pay Pal or no deal!

Sorry, but there is no way we can open the track for Friday for various reasons. Remember, this is just a regional not a national.

I used to be a so cal guy grew up in Costa Mesa and Balboa Island, now living in VA. Can't you Aliso Drift Boys cut us some slack and give us transplanted East Coast guys some track time?
