Before getting a faster motor did you get round cleanly and consistently?

Wherever you get the motor from Steve can also skim motors etc. for members.

He does it for a few people

I'm sure you did fine

12 wind motor could a good choice, but I'll let the guys who where there on Sunday make the recommendations...

Hello Wayne,
no bullet connectors, it is much better to solder the motor directly on to the esc wires. I will have my 12v soldering iron with me Sunday. I will get the there 8ish so we will have plenty of time to get it in to your car.

Your car should go much better with a good motor, you said you have six battery packs so using a fresh one everytime will ensure you have the power.

You just need the rear blue mini spikes and inserts from Steve and you car will be transformed. :woot:

thats cool ...my new speedo turned up and all installed ready for the new motor...i kinda figured that having 6 batterys was a better way for me to do it [more expensive tho] cos i can charge em all n ensure i will have enough for the day...i have mainly 3700 NI-MH cells and they last about ten mins so should be enough for 2 races too[i know the new motor will drain more but im still hopefull lol]

ill get the car ready for installation of the motor so we can just put it in when i get there ..and i should be able to get the back tyres aswell....
i think then it would be quick enough to be on the pase atleast.

thank you so much for your time :) much appreciated
