I know it's off topic, I'll answer.

It matters what type of racing you're doing, lower Ir = more power. So in 17.5 racing, you want the lowest possible. In mod, high IR's can cause unnecessary heat in the battery because of the increased amp draw from the motor.

IR is very much a perspective thing. Anything over I'd say 6 for a combined pack is not good.

Thanks in advance
I'm liking the RCSHOX 2 stage pistons. 25/22.5 oil

Speaking of weight, I was surprised my car was so light, I have the full pucks, cut gears, with the 4 gear, 25g C block, shorty, full size servo, LRP flow, r1 wurks 17.5, I was at 1508.

weird. tires matter a lot. my M4 tires add 25g over my clay tires.


When I weighted 1680g no shock package was great. at around 1550, the car lands pretty good with 1.6s. Imo, the car is WAY to heavy out of the box. The new car is perfect for racing. The weight was the only real gripe I ever had with the car.

I'm looking forward to trying the lighter chassis with the brick pack, I believe it should be able to get into the low 1500g range.

Shes a big girl, 1606g race ready running Stock. However I just tore it apart last night to put some lightweight pieces on it, Not a lot, so I'd guess the new weight will be 1575g Race ready

the 1.4x3 has LESS pack when landing. I run 1.6 f/r and 32.5/30 weight oils. I am at about 1550. I use grey/grey springs, when I run slicks and white/white when I run mini pin tires.

I was going to suggest a 1.4 3 hole with a 27.5-32.5 oil but I'm not a set up guru so I stayed out of it.

Big girls..I like em'............just not too big

Wildcat,

We had been running 1.6 front and rear locally for a while too with 32.5 in front and 27.5 in rear. We have found the 1.4 x 3 s give us more traction overall when used at all 4 corners. We are running 35 front and 30 rear for oil with great success. I feel the 1.4 x 3 with 30 gives good low speed dampening and packs up nice over the 1.6 with 27.5 for our given track.

Thanks for the info and help!

Alan

Ya I completely agree with you and I love the 3x1.4s it deff is an advantage in the rear when the track is loose and bumpy. But I recently went back to the 2x1.6 in the rear bc my track had a lot more bite then usual for our recent big race.

I always run 3x1.4s in the front I think it gives the car a little bit more steering than the 1.6s
