Well another weekend is done for Brahma... We took 3 of the top 4 qualifying positions @ Mikes Hobby Shop in Dallas, Tx on Carpet including the TQ position. We all experienced a little bad luck from the point the tone went off tho...

I heard Clint made both A's at his regionals. Super dialed.

David- That Demon stock motor was KILLER this weekend. Turned the fastest laps in stock in the first A-main. The blue printed version is to die for. Thanks goes out to Chris for making sure that I had some product for this race. The batteries are were pretty good as well. The runtime I had left over made me think that I held back some....LOL Don't forget that Dujuan made the main in both classes too....

I finished 2nd overall in stock and 8th over all in 19 turn. I was very disappointed in my 19 turn class but I do have the carpet regionals in a few weeks to make up for it.

TQ and the win for Brahma today at the carpet track in the 19 turn class. The wildcard was used in qualifying with my own tuning twist added to it. I will get me one that's blue printed though. I ran it on carpet with rubber tire's with a final drive ratio of 6.44 Is this close to what some of you have run the motor at? I used Reedy 767 brushes with a 7oz spring on the neg and a 9oz spring on the pos The motor runs pretty cool and the comm stayed excellent run after run.

On a big track with rubber tires I was gearing mine the same as I would the quad mag 19t. Like 5 something.

Also I forgot to add that Me and Billy and Gabe ran 19t last night. Gabe had that car dialed. Billy was so much faster then us with his Dragon 19t but just had bad luck. I got my car to stay on two wheels instead of flipping all the way over in the main to take the win.

David- I'm still learning all of the names so forgive me when I ask is the dragon the reedy 19 turn? If so I ran it in the main as I felt that it had a bit more bottom end torque compared to the wildcard. I had it geared at 6.27 which was a little higher than the wildcard but with better rip out of the corners. I did get my doors blown off by a C2 motor geared to the moon but after that one heat the motor was fried so he never got a chance to do that again.

Congrats on your win and congrats to the rest of the guys that did well.

I've tried all the 19ts but I keep going back to the first Equinox that Chris sent me. Thats the C2 based motor. Its the can me and Brian and Gabe run on carpet. I think we all were geared like 6.64 with it. I'll have to double check with Gabe. He had his Schumacher hooked last night. I wish I could have passed off some of my traction roll to him. I had plenty to spare lol

The guy the motored my had his C2 geared at 6.8 and fried it. I let my team mate run my C2 and he had it geared at 7.2 and it was pretty fast. If you can could you please post or PM me the brush and spring combo you guys are using on the motor? Are you guys racing on foams or rubber tires?

In practice my car wouldnt handle. In the qualifiers it was on rails, I was leading the first and second qualifiers when the rear ballcups came off. Replaced them and the ballstuds,.. made no difference. So... if anyone has any ideas besides an exorcists and buying a new car, speak up

What car are you running right now? If you're looking into getting a whole new car then take a look at the MI2. Great car and the support is to die for.
