See yall saturday. I've got the new HFAY stock motor to try out for testing. I'll turn a couple laps to find what changes I need to make. If I can't get it to worrk well with the new nsx body, I guess i'll have to change to 98mm.

Tried it out with the new hfay motor and I had my throttle arc around -80 to get any decent traction out of corners. It looks like I'll have to change this car to 98mm or go RM :(

Looks like a pretty good layout Hank! So the new motor is pretty powerful? Would you say a lot more powerful than stock?

The motor is pretty stout. It definately has alot more torque and top end. I was using an 8 tooth pinion, but I think a 9 tooth pinion will do better with traction problems with out losing too much acceleration.

I remember you would use your stock car in the mod class and it would do really well since it was consistant. I think that if you could do the same with this motor, you could probably win mod and stock class with just one car.

No!!! According to the HFAY rules, White bodies are not allowed!

Just kidding... I use mine, so I guess you can use yours.
