I know this is not a battery thread, but I use a 5000mah Reedy 20C and a Thunder Power 3200 40C. I notice alot more 'punch' with the 40C batts - really noticeable, but they don't seem translate into all around faster laptimes (for me anyway)

More of a 'feel' thing......

..just to add a bit of perspective, I used to run a 3200 25C and it would trail off something fierce towards the end of the race. Now that I have a Thunder Power 5000 40C (which dropped in) the power is noticebly better during the last few minutes of a race, so I'd agree with that 0.5 second at the tail end of a run.

I never had a chance to felt that way cause I came back racing with a 28C 5Amps SMC and bought a 40C 5000 didnt ssee no diff.

I guess the bottom line we need to run 17.5 without a battery bottle neck is around 150Amps.

Yup, you guessed it. My car is so money right up until the point where it suspends gravity in the immediate vicinity of itself and exits stage left. Until I get this annoyance purged from the car, I'm stuck driving like a chauffeur with Ms. Daisy on the top deck.

No offset rear hubs, nothing really strange about the setup. Where can I edit and save a setup sheet from? I've found a few places to edit and print setup sheets, but the saving part is never available.

I like that last paragraph of your note " or buying other brand of car"

we used to say to go faster just do 3thing in following order

1: tune your car

2: change your driving line

if both of above not working then.

3: go fix that part of the track where you slow at.


in seriouse note, what is your rear droop over riding height? also sup with that pistons? iic? is that hand drilled 56?
