nice! 23T pinion helps..

runtime only 4 mins, 6S gives a double at least.

anyway, good job! thanks for sharing

Runtime is 5 mins, but I already drove a few laps before we started filming.

No, 6S does not give me 10 minutes of runtime on our big track (it gave me 7-8), other problems arise, like overheating under breaking because of the added weight. A braking servo did take away that problem, but the car (Serpent 950R at that time) was just to heavy and the handling of the car was not so good anymore.... (as was the tyre wear! )

Ok, good to know. Mine was too slow with 4S on our track but maybe the gearing wasn't tall enough.

Hi,

we had a great race day yesterday with nitro touring and "track eight" which means that all 1:8 scales raced together, nitro and electric, also GT-8 (nitro or electric along) with foam tyres. It was a success again!

Here's a nice gallery http://wormhole.pictures.fi/kuvat/RC...A4%C3%A4+2012/

Mine is there, too
http://wormhole.pictures.fi/kuvat/RC...2/N4102369.jpg

Some results for comparison
1:8 onroad nitro - 1:8 onroad electric (18T pinion - 6S 1950kv) - GT8 electirc (6S I believe)

A new body to my EDAM and a custom scoop to cool down the motor.

looks great!
what was your final choices for motor kv? 4s or 6s? mah rating? gearing? run time? top speed?
just picked up a serpent 966e and wanted a good place to start

sorry for all the questions

what rpm range are we looking for?

So far mine is definitely 6S
gearing still open, 18T ok and does not give temp cut, but I've since increased cooling --> 23t on longer tracks
1950kv sensored, 3S 90C 4600mAh x 2
Runtime 8 mins

well guys, I've been really spending some quality time with Solidworks the last few days. I think I'm getting really close to cutting some CF and getting this thing built.
Does a 1/8th scale pan car make you stop and say "Hmmmmm"?
