Have a tech question...

What is the advantage of running a smaller spur?

118 vs 102 - what if the Fdr is the the same? More torque? Less torque? Less heat on the motor? Bigger spur better for brushless?

More gearing options, some drivers can feel the difference of the motor being mounted 2-3mm forward or back. A 102 might not mesh with smaller pinions for higher FDR's, as a 118 won't fit for lower FDR's. A 118 was good for rubber tire for me, I only needed less for foam.

Its actually better to run the biggest spur and pinion you can to get the gearing you need. The bigger the gears, the less friction between them and the more power and speed you get.

As for the weight balance thing... you can move lead around for that

So whats the hot ticket battery everyone is using in their Type-R this season?

I have been running trackpower 4900s for a little over a year now and although they have been great I would assume something better has come out by now.

Trakpower has upgraded their 4900 to 25c, 30c acceleration and 50c burst since then. They currently have the best Enerland cells.

Losi has a 4400 that is 30c, but is also a Chinese cell.. Don't know how much the numbers get "fudged" in translation.

Reedy has a 35c but it does not fit.

If what you have is doing the job then stick with it. There is very little difference in ontrack performance among the good packs. Don't jump on the "C rating" bandwagon expecting lower lap times as there is nothing in it.

Larry won the Reedy race with it last year and the car rocks on carpet. If anything the car was ahead of it's time when introduced and is still as fast as anything on the market. Don't get fooled by the "new car every year" hype that some companies have.

+1 no need to update something that works better then most car......

don't forget this car won 3 classes last year at birds and tq'ed 2 of them. TQ'ed 13.5 foam at birds this year. I think there were more of these in 17.5 foam A then any other car too.

Hello everyone, just thought to let you know that I am working on a newer excel worksheet for the type r. For those who have been browsing at Mr. RcTech's post on the main On road page, his excel Software aka the "pro version" has additional items to what I though of. After posting the excel worksheet, I asked for suggestions or comments and no one responded. Have a look at this and let me know if you want something specific to meet your needs. I chose not to use photos as they are property of Losi.

he is charging $20 USD for this. You will get yours free!

I was quite angry when he took my idea to make $$$, which I am fairly certain of as it is originally for the E4. Just a co-incident that he may have seen my original back in Sept.

Cheers

Gordon
