I have already ordered the Dragon 19t (becaused it has been allowed to run at different tracks) and I am excited about getting it, but I also thought about ordering another 19t to run.

If a track lets you run that can then there should be no problem with the Wildcard. Both are fixed timing motors with tagged arms.

Ok, that's kind of a relief. I know everyone asks this question but I just have to lol, on a track that is 90 x 48 and half technical and half flowing what would you rcommend or what is the common rollout for the Wildcard and the Dragon. Running the regular Reedy Quadmag I was rolling out at about 1.17 inches and it was alright. I guess I just want know a little more comparison between the Dragons and Wildcard motor characteristics as well as if I am in the right ballpark.
Thanks for your help!

Lemme run numbers and see if I can swing that Spectrum system.

Got the car today. That thing is SWEET! Lots of hop-ups too. Thanks Chris, you're the man.

Gonna go through the car this week. It's got some binding in the drivetrain. Have to pick up a Torx driver adn then replace the screws with those Ti ones you sent.

lol. The car looks cool. I'm going to tear it down and rebuild the drive train. For some reason, it doesn't spin freely. Ah well, this is how I'll learn how to work on the car.

Can't wait to run it.

Do I have to do any grinding or filing on the car to run 28mm foams?

Rob

Argh. Can't work on the car tonight... no Torx driver.

Looks like I'll be hitting Sears/Home Depot/Lowe's tomorrow at lunch.
