Got to say once again thanks for the motors, they had heaps of power all weekend. As Puddle said i didnt have the best luck in 4WD, was cruising in second in the last final and my wheel fell off!! I went on to qualify 6th in both 2WD and Truck, and finished 4th again in 2WD and 5th in Truck. New Banzai customer Jay Beatty TQd and won Truck, apparently they're the best motors hes ever had! Thanks again guys!

Good Job Aussies!!

In Germany we switch to brushless in stock - 13.5

Any suggestions for an ESC to buy?
Speedpassion GT looks interesting.

I have been pretty happy with the non-ss gtb's. I am going to try an SP for the first time this weekend, so we will see how that goes.

We will be carrying all Speed Passion products.

Motors, speed controls and everything that goes with them.

We are just beginning to get products in and most team

members do NOT even have theirs yet. We are waiting for

the new Roar approvals for the 13.5 and 17.5's.

Until we have had a chance to get EVERYTHING in and

personally test everything, they will not be up on the web-site

just yet. If you have any questions, please email me.

Also, there is a Speed Passion thread here in the On-Road

section and it is VERY active!! Shawn and Adam are there every

day and answer every question so feel free to ask them on their

forum! They have been extremely helpful and terrific to work

with.

We will continue to have brushed motors, stock, 19t and mods

through this year. We are making the transition with Jimmy Babcock

and the JBRL series. We do hope to be able to help everyone with

a smooth transition, for those that want to go brushless. What will

happen next year, I don't know. Roar has outlawed 19t brushed

for Roar races. How many companies will be willing to make 19t

brushed motors available in 2009, I don't know.

BUT for 2008, we will be carrying all brushed motors too.

Hope that helps everyone a bit, and as I said, until we're ready

to announce all products in and tested, please email me with

your questions!!!

Thanks!

Judi, Scott and Jason

Judi,

Can you even speculate on a ballpark price range? just curious. Im guessing it might be in the Novak/LRP price range. I was reading through on their site, neat stuff. Its good to see you guys sticking to the innovative side, and Speedpassion DEFINATELY looks innovative!


**Am I the only one frustrated with the BL movement? seems to me the 19t was the only fair class. I understand the need for progress, but sheesh. Bring back the Fixed endbell Silver Cans**

We will always LOVE brushed motors.

BUT, we have to be realistic, and brushless and lipo

are here to stay. I just don't like being banned and

forced to run something, that's the independent person

in me!! I don't like sheep mentality!

And in this economy, I think we need to be INclusive, not

EXclusive!! Just my 2 pennies worth!

Momo, please email me!

PS The JBRL will be ALL brushed in stock and 19t.

Brushless in mod ONLY. I believe the Roar Nats and

Shoot-Out will be both running together. I dont

know about Lipo. Shoot-Out will follow Roar rules.

ROAR rules allow lipo's in all classes. Just an FYI.

So the shootout will allow brushless/lipo in all classes?
