You forget the electric racers extremely pathetic ability to get on the stand in a timely manner. Make it triple 10m mains for electric, full hour for nitrobuggy. Fair is fair.

Coverage seems fine.

Wgtr still rules. But I'm so glad the damn Canam motors are gone. Plugs were stupid. And there was a couple outliers with extra power.

Even the Fluke varies wildly. You can wrap what you're measuring and use a thermocouple probe if it's important. I recommend that everyone set their temp gun down on their work bench right now. Pick...

DED.

We're running 17.5 open, gearing open. If the track has the motor in stock, I'll run it. Otherwise tough. But it's quickly becoming an open17.5 class again.

Tekin's the best. Could use an updated case now that all of us no longer use fans.

Hobbywing SCT with a Fantom motor would be my second choice.

It's the AC. Been there, done that. Same issue. Straight up saline might be safer if you need a ton.

Eye drops help sometimes. Run some nitrobuggy until clouds of dust strengthen your eyes up.

Electric has nothing on Nitro, except that you can race it by yourself.

There likely is a track within 100 miles. Tracks suck at getting the word out, that they exist.

Then again, it's a double edged sword. All the weirdos will know as well.

Bah, he's in Ohio. There's a hundred decent 1/8th scale outdoor tracks. Carpet onroad in a dozen spots. And 1/8th nitro onroad in Toledo and Cincy.

That's why I recommended Hitec and Tekin. If it fails, pop your spare servo in, and send it back. They'll fix or replace it for a reasonable fee, or quite often repair it for free. They stand...

That's just two DC pulses. Sure, one is backwards.

An esc can be a simple as 6 push button switches, with 6 idiot RC'ers with drum sticks, and a car battery. If each RC'er hits their button in the...

Hobbywing is no better. They've fallen off their perfect reliability crown. It's the goofy switch, painful setup, and programming cards that annoy me. I don't even have a card to tune mine anymore. ...
