For those that are interested I achieve a reduction in temperature of around 20dC/68d F for each 5 minute run, net 52dC /125dF (Running 6.5T Boosted, 20T Pinion/81T Spur indoors on carpet,ambient temp approx 25d.
Just curious what kind of track you are running on to need a 6.5t motor boosted in a 2wd buggy :P

RC Racing is supposed to be fun. Literally, 1 in a million can make living at it. Don't spoil it by taking the fun out of it.
Thanks for your input. That was the reason for asking the question between the Lite or CE. Personally I like being able to have a edgy car and quick rather than lethargic heavy car. Still back and forth on which one but going to a race soon at the track and will talk with them on what they run.

Do you have a link to the one that fits the Phantom body?

Thanks

My 95% stock B5M Lite made it into the A Main at the Georgia Indoor Championship. 175+ entries.

The only upgrades I have are the Alum C and D blocks because I want to run the +4mm mount on carpet. The X-rings because the stock red o-rings are about worthless.

That's it!

I ran a 7.5T with some turbo lol. Stock slipper was fine.

Ahhh, I wasn't aware there was more than one offered on shapeways which is why I asked in another post if it was the AC RC fan mount. I've been thinking of ditching it anyhow. Heat is never a problem.

It's the first one on the list under shapeways on the first page of this thread, in any case here is the link

http://www.shapeways.com/product/U9M...ionId=43516079

When I first received it I thought the material would not last long but it's as good as the day I first bought it. You may need to replace the existing screws from the top of the brace with the countersunk flat head M310 screws as they seem to provide a more secure fit you can see the example in the picture I provided above.

Got a set of dirt webs, high bite indoor clay with 11 days on them. What is a good time to get new? Tires being most important, how many days do most use theirs before they replace?

Too many factors. I would say, replace when they start to suck.

Just to add to that unless you can run straight glue and go at your track you may not want to run brand new tires in your main, lest you get lapped by the one person you want to beat
