TOUR 13.5 Nationwide/Spec Question

So, since it seems 17.5 Open is on the way out as a "full" class, and the D3.5 17.5's probably won't be legal next year, what's the "hot ticket" motor for 13.5 Spec/Nationwide? I'm running a SMC/Power Push 7000mAh and the Mamba Max Pro 1-cell.

the 17.5 class is still strong here in FL Minreg had a good turn out for both classes and strickland always has a bunch of both classes. I'll bet the birds has plenty in both classes.

The class that is getting lower turn outs is 13.5 open.

I have not heard anything about the D3.5 17,5 getting dropped from TOUR classes. Except a few here on HT.....and that is wishfull thinking. I am afraid too many racers own them and like them.

I don't know what going on locally where your at. The 13.5 class is growing since they came out with the Gen3.

Yeah, I run a traveling series, and we're lucky to get five or six cars in 17.5 Open, although, in our pre-season poll, there was like nearly 20 guys that said they'd run 17.5 Open.

As for the D3.5 17.5 motor, I thought I had read in the TOUR forums that after April (the end of this carpet season), the D3.5 17.5 motor would be "illegal" in that class (I also thought that I had read that after January 1, 2014, that motor would not be ROAR-legal, either, but, since carpet season goes through April, TOUR would let it run this year).

**EDIT**: After looking around, this is what I found:

Quote:
Under the terms of the agreement, the TRINITY D3.5/17.5 Trinity motor will be reinstated on the ROAR approved list on July 1, 2013 and will remain on that list through the first quarter of 2014, upon the release of the new TRINITY D4/17.5, when it will be removed. Trincorp has guaranteed this will occur before March 30, 2014.
So it's looking like yet another "must-have" <?> motor will be coming later on.

13.5 Spec/Nationwide *is* about the largest class now, drawing nearly as many cars as 17.5 Sportsman Truck (well, I guess now it's TOUR "SuperTruck").

As of right now the 17.5 is the only stator that will be removed from the ROAR approval list.

Well I was thinking about buying another 17.5 for the birds to run SK and open 17.5....but I will skip one of those classes now.

Great! It seems like the Novak Ballistic was good for years. Even when the TP came out the Novak still ran with it. I hope the D4 version of the 13.5 doesn't make the D3.5 13.5 useless.

I wished all the Trinity motors would be banned and we started running Novak or TP motors it would make everything more even and fair. I got one motor from Trinity (13.5) that read 13.0 13.0 12.9 and the rotor was 15.20/-15.23 the next motor was 12.6 12.6 12.7 and the rotor was 15.45/-15.53. Not saying there a bad company but at least make things more fair and quit the 5% bull. My 2 cents

I agree, I have so called 5% staters that are marked 12.6 and measure in the mid 13's or worse.... Lots of us racers up here Wasted lots of money on a sticker... And it's getting old.....

Also, what rotor should go in?

I have something to say again about Trinity and there 5% bs I ordered 2 high torque rotors last week. Saturday when we got to the track I had the checked to see the numbers on them they were horrible I could have thrown them in the trash bad. Another person was there with 2 non 5% high torque rotors that were better than what I had. I'm really mad about this I mean really if I'm gonna pay the extra money quite being a jackass and send the actule 5% stuff. I have spent so much this year with Trinity I could have got another KSG car, 1-2 Novak or TP motors, 2-3 smc batteries.

I hate to see racers getting burned buy so called "Top notch" stuff. But this is preceisely why I don't "drink the Koolaid" when a sponsored driver gets on here and rants and raves about how good a product is.. When I see a majority of people running a product, I can only assume its good, plus I ask racers that I trust for their opinions on stuff before I make any purchases. I rac eon a budget and i don't want to get stuck with equipment that isn't gonna help me run fast.
