Or you can take a set of calipers and do it as well.

Rick,

Our oval series is moving forward with the LiPo battery type class a little earlier than I expected.

I'm hoping to have a small class at our upcoming Encino Velodrome race on May 19th.

If the participation is there I'm hoping we can start with 5-6 cars using the 3200 Carbon Edition battery with the Novak 10.5 motor.

...there has been a lot of talk about other motors coming to the market very soon, and PEAK is one of the companies who will be bringing out a 10.5 motor of your own. We are about looking for some equalization and parity for some of our upcoming B/L classes. What can we expect performance wise from the Peak 10.5 in comparison w/ the Orange brand, and if you feel it would be a faster/better/stronger power plant do you feel it should be allowed to compete in a regulated class?

As long as a motor fits within the rules of the class, I don't think speed should have anything to do with its acceptance.

Whatif a company releases a brushed motor that was faster than anythig Trinity offers? Should it be disallowed just because pretty much everyone will have to buy this new motor? No way!

Brushless enthusiasts have to get used to the idea that faster and faster motors will continue to be developed and that just because a motor is brushless does not mean that it is immune to becoming obsolete.

Hey Rick what is the recommended FDR for the Peak/Vortex 4.5 in a touring car? Is it the same as the novak 4.5? Thanks

I believe it is different. Start with 9.2:1 on a smaller track up to7.8:1 on a very large 1/8 style track.

We don't expect any changes to be made at this time if at all - business as usual.

Default Q Brushes

Many drivers have tested these brushes in the Reedy Race handout 19-turn motors with excellent results. We will have them available for sale at the Reedy Race beginning on Thursday. Please see me or Joe Pillars at the race if you want to purchase some.

Rick,

For the Q brushes, I'm curious if you have any suggestions for which springs to use in the Reedy Quad mag? Also, any other modifications to the brush? Like drilling a hole? Slot? etc. Thanks!

Derek Furutani told me that he suggests the PEK2054 175* Viper Stock Spring on both the positive and negative sides with no modifications to the brush.

These are also know as Team Orion Pro Laydown Motor Springs ORI41324.

He also mentioned using a FD of 5.6:1.
