Ahh, theyre changing the weight. Hmm.. i would think that the horsepower difference would be too great. Very interesting though.

Did the speedo setting, and in fact its a well known fact that the Q2's tend to wander so I re-set the speedo every meeting. What is this 'h' setting I know there's a switch behind the Module, but was told to have it swtched to the bottom if your using 2.4 or is this not right

Malc the switch has small letter in each spot, both work with the dsm, it is only if you have an analog servo it may not like the "h" (faster setting). Use the faster setting and you should be fine.

Cool dude thanks for that info, was not aware of the situation with regards to analog and digital as I have a 2143 & 2173 servo which would be the better?

Duckman--Thanks for the pic! Looks good the way you have it laid out.
BTW---did you seperate the red/blk/white speedo wires and then run them in the fins on the GTZ heat sink? From the pics that is what it looks like. If so then that is awesome!!!!

Wow, those weights seem quite heavy.

I know my JRX-S weighs 1350g with 6 cells, foams and stock motor. Without the lead of course!

The last race I was at the min was 1425g with personal transponder. I kept it at around 1430g for the event.

But that's why I was curious as to Todd's opinion since I'm betting that he's tested 5 cell Type-Rs and he knows the Tamiya track well...

I have not done much 5 cell testing. However with the reduced weight your car does corner a lot faster especially the Type R. At Tamiya I am gonna have to go with 5 Cell and Brushless. I think it will be the only way to go. You will have a lighter car that can transfer faster in the kink at Tamiya. It will also make the car easier to enter the chicane coming into the main straight. That track has a lot of left hand turns so I am not sure where the weight will be balanced on traditional cars. On the type r it will be the same. It is just all about moving the battery forward or back.

I would also think a lighter car will be much easier on tires.

As rough as the track has been with mod cars in testing the 5c setup would be easier on tires.

I think having the 5/6 cell option for the Reedy Race is AWESOME! And the best part is, the Type R owners will be able to adapt much easier than the other chassis out there. I especially like the idea of less tire wear! I can't wait to do some testing this weekend.
