Hello people, i just wanted to share with you the events of today.
Today I had the most fun I have had in TC racing for a loooong time. For the end of year meeting we deceided to run an enduro. Enduros are nothing new, but this was my first. Teams of two drivers. Qualifying by means of a "one lap dash", followed by 60 min race.
For the first time my combination of GTB, 13.5t and 4800 lipo were well and truly in their element.
bla bla bla ... cut to the chase...
I ran 25 min at race speed on the one battery... 25 Minutes!
Geared the motor down two teeth for better battery life, motor got warm, but not hot (no heat sink).
For this race, everything was open, but as alway in an enduro situation consistancy is the key. Some people were running 540/silver can, some ran 19t, some ran stock, everyone had their own strategy, everybody had a blast!
This race was sooooo much fun, getting paired up with another driver who I didnt know to well was good for the "getting to know other people" aspect of racing. Tag team driving. Planning battery changes. Repairs on thefly.
we were fortunate to not have any breakages, no radio interference, no mechanical problems and and all changeovers went smoothly. we just kept on going. In the end, me and my team mate turned out 144 laps to win by a margin of 18 laps.
All in all...
gotta love the enduro...
