Hello fellow 13.5t people,
Last weekend I did some 13.5t/27t testing and the results were interesting.
there were 4 races, only 5 cars so not too much traffic to worry about.
race 1 - 27t + 3800nimh (motor1, batt1)
race 2 - 27t + 3800nimh (motor2, batt2)
race 3 - 13.5t +3800nimh (motor3, batt1)
race 4 - 13.5t +4800lipo (motor3, batt3)
not the most scientific process or environment, however these were the results:
# best lap - ave. lap - consistancy
1 - 15.788 - 16.478 - 0.78
2 - 16.018 - 16.871 - 1.07
3 - 15.950 - 16.749 - 0.72
4 - 15.607 - 16.086 - 0.70
obvioulsy much more testing needs to be done with different gearing etc, but I though this might be interesting for people who are looking at the performance of this motor
I used the same gearing throughout the day
I didnt need to be marshalled, but got a bit slippery after changing tyres due to the track heating up, in race 2
Forgot to add weight when using the lipo, to that may be the reason I shaved a bit off the laptimes.
All in all, I would consider these motors to be so similar in performance that they can be run together in the stock class, hopefully this will be recognised by the ruling bodies fairly soon.
