Oh come now...No tears..just Desire.Same motors?For a spec class YES...Same spec motors...leaves choice and ability.There is a difference.Like the Komodo..Integy...superbird..etc.Funny my luva...we are agreeing here..I think??NO more 27T for sure.We are running 19 in the rubber class..Aaron liked it(alot I think).Works just ducky.This is fun tho!

Woah! Hang on, fellas. Let's not get all outta hand because of this. We can, and will come to a solution. We just have to stay calm and work through it. Everyone's opinion is valid and deserves to be heard and discussed. No need to get upset.

Jamie: I'm not sure what you mean by "handle a 19T". I think anyone who drives at Marshall's, at least from what I've seen so far, has the requisite driving skills to handle it, it's just a question of equality. True "closeness of racing" can only be measured when everyone is running the same or at least similar equipment, as deemed by the manufacturers and governing bodies within RC racing. I think it was Mario who said that Jeremy won 2 weeks ago with a brushed stock motor against 17.5 B/L motors, so that proves that it can be done.

I'd be glad to run in a 19T class, cause I can see, now that I'm maxed out on gearing with my 17.5, it's going to start to feel slow to me as the season goes on and my skills further improve. The "problem" lies in that I don't run brushed motors anymore. Cutting comms, replacing brushes and eventually replacing arms is just too much of a hassle for me, and, in the long run, winds up costing more than an $80 B/L motor. So like the other guy said, I'd want to run a 13.5, which, I believe, is the accepted "small-track" equivalent of a 19T brushed motor.

ok, it looks like yu guys worked out that little spat as I was typing up my last post, so disregard the beginning part of my last post. lol

So now that we seem to be leaning towards 19T, how about us brushless guys? Is everyone OK with us running a 13.5?

Wassup Tim, What i meant by handling it was, alex said 19t was to much for the track and i say it's only to much for the track if you can't handle Didn't mean to insult no one by that. But as you can see, 19t didn't see to be to much for the track this past sunday, Correct? And about the second half of your post i can understand what you mean. I do like the idea of the low maintanance Brushless and will probably jump into one next season but this season i just won't be able to. so this is why 19t picks up the pace and gets every one a little closer together on the track at a litlle lower cost.

yes what about the brushless guys i dont own a single brushed moror any more besides a 10 tripple i dont want 2 b out powered

13.5 will equal a 19t i can vouch for that to a T we did it all summer

or do we still have to run 17.5 and try 2 keep up (im alrteady pushing the motors limits i can make it any faster)

im not complainong i just want 2 know what 2 run since i only have that morning get it all right


oh and i can handle a 19t turky dayy weekend boys

mario,
i have an orion 13.5 you can try for the day...if ya want.
i was reading in an earleir post that 13.5 is equal to 19 turn...in the quote on quote a 10.5 is to be in the same comparrison as a 19 turn.
i just wanted heads up on what to run.i will prolly only make it there a few times over this winter.so for me to run brushed wont be a big deal.although i wouldnt want to do it everyweek.although i do have a lathe...
i was talking to jereme on the phone and he said be prepared to run 19 turn.so when i come to race there on the 30th i will just purchase a 19 turn motor there.

Probably the best bet.19T.I think the "vote" is going to go 19T/13.5 brushless....by roar guidlines...so bring both.I guess.I am going to try to figure this all out FOR MYSELF this sunday...will know more that nite.Let's see what happens.M

i would love to run a 13.5..... thats just me tho. i think from what i was watching sunday, that mario had his car on rails, he was a little underpowered by the 19t's. a 13.5 would even out that playing field a bit more. everybody is fast no matter what way u look at tha picture. it would just be nice to get it all figured out tho

So said the prophet!If we end up with ROAR rules 13.5 is the 19T equivalent.
