3.why do people run a front one way? how dose it affect the cars handeling?
4.do your local races have a class for brushless?
5.why do brushless esc's have fans?
6.ive seen motors over heat, what could cause this?
7.are lipo more powerfull then the matched cell nimh packs?
8.heating tiers gives you more traction, right?
9.nimh packs seem realy confusing, are they as complicated as they sound?
10.why do you have to build your batterie packs?
11.should i spend the extra and get a tc5 or get a x-ray t2r?
12.why do all the pros run the mazda 6 body?
13.what are the different classes and what are their rules?
14.would a 6-3 turn brushless and lipo pack be against the rules to run in any class?
15.whats a good brand for brushless? im looking at the novak gtb/velocity combo.
i think thats all for now, thank you.
1. Rubber is for ashpalt, foam for carpet.
2. It's all different foe each track but I think my track doesn't care.
3. Front one-ways are generally for use on large fast tracks with long sweepers and such. It adds on-power steering sometimes makes the car spin during braking and off-power steering.
4. Yes, when we run mod.
5. Only the GTB has a fan, the Sphere doesn't come with one. It helps keep the temps down from the large draw of a BL motor.
6. Over gearing, long mains, high heat...
7. Li-Po is more powerful but lighter too, you will have to make sure the car is balanced from left to right.
8. Yes, it softens the rubber and lets it expand.
9. Li-Po's are way more confusing. IMO
10. You don't, doing so just gives better packs. The matched cells will charge, run, and last longer/better of their life.
11. Cyclone S
12. It's the body that has the general best all around feel I believe. I haven't run one since last year and now run a G6.
13. Stock, 19t and mod are at most tracks. Stock needs a 24 degree 27 turn motor ROAR legal. 19T is the same, Mod can use any motor, BL motors must be sensored.
14. Yes, only in stock and 19 though. you don't wanna run mod being a beginner, you will break on every lap and get VERY fustrated. Mod is not a easy class to race.
15. Novak is a great brand. But like I said, think twice about jumping to a mod race. It's VERY fast paced with (most likely) all of your local track pros running that class.
