I dismantled an old reedy outlaw stock to practice. Only took two hits on the concrete to knock off the end bell I had to make several pases to get it cleaned up. That motor had at least a hundred runs on it.

KD19 have insane top end. The C2 have more bottom end with good top end. C2 are better for tight tracks. KD's better for tracks with long straights or flowing layouts. If I only had one I would use the KD. That is what I used all last year in the JBRL.

Hey there Halve! How the heck are you?? Are you running

the JBRL this year???

Agree with Casper! Would only add that since you are just now moving

up to 19t, take that into consideration. We're still carrying

both, so it's up to you. The KD's are wicked fast!!

Glad to see you here!

I just started using te kd.
It's awesome! We drive on a Tight, But flowing supercross style track.
With a little "magic gearing"(thats what I call CASPER gear ratios, instead of what some Meathead THINKS should work), that motor screams!
Judi says identitiy crisis, I think its more of an "early bloomer".
She knows what she's capable of well before her winds.

You got it, Downtown!! It's ALL in the gearing!

Casper's been to a lot of tracks, from here to Colorado,

and he's quite good at it!! Along with the brush "trick" !

Had to add that Casper so you'll get 200 emails about that!

Casper's ratios have been Spot On for me.
Some "other guys" use their own theory, But can't produce the pony I can by using the simple yet effective knowledge that Casper has laid out for us.

Yep, brush trick that he learned from Scott !

Actually, it's an inside joke, OR secret, depending on how

you look at it!!

And is it me, or do these kd's need about 45 sec to a min to get "warmed up"
to be at peak punch?

Hey Mom, so yes, we are still running JBRL this year, I was thinking of running stock truck, and maybe messing around with 19t truck. Don't know yet.

Hey Judi, looks like I'm going to run my XXX-CR in 2wd stock and 19T at Cactus this year. What motor company should I run Just kidding! Actually, I race with Dave Brown at Family Hobbies in Santee regularly and have seen your motors GO And he does nothing but praise Banzai motors and Slingshot batteries. Now, if he could just get control of that power then MAYBE he could beat me just once ! I have yet to get to try out your motors, but I will hopefully soon enough (hey Downtown, how about that loaner!?) I plan on giving Casper a run for his money at Cactus and JBRL this year to. I out qualified him in Stock at SuperCross, but he got the better of me in the main Oh well, there's always next time! Hope to meet and talk you and the Banzai crew soon.
