It's a real technical track with sharp corners. Motors are always under high pressure because the track has a infernal Brake/Throttle rythm. No time to rest in large curves or long straight lines where the weight of the car is always well launched.
That's why I join Martin saying that your config can be ok for that large track and cooler conditions as I could see on the video, people were wearing warm jackets. But it may show some overload and heat issues on some other small/narrow tracks.
Well time will tell, this is, next races will tell us who is right. For what I have seen, and experienced here, I believe jopor is right. Let us wait.
I know that track jopor shows. It is a very nice track, lots of grip, and two diferent sectors a fast one with a very hard braking zone and a technical one with lots of braking zone, and to be fast people need to brake hard.
I believe there are a lot of "urban myths" about electrics nowadays. The reason why people moved to 5 cells is because of some of those myths. To me it was a completly stupid move to do. Based on one of those myths the transmissions of Touring cars would brake apart every pack of use with lipo and brushless motors.
I know drivers that moved to stock class because of that expected problem.
Reality have showed us that it was just a myth, I have been racing with that configuration for a lot of time, I knew it a long ago.
This first race jopor showed just proved that, nobody broke the cars even with lipo and 6 turn delta motors.
I know from experience that GM motors together with GM ESCs are the best system one can use, they always run cooler then the rest. It was impressive to me the temperature of the motor of jopor's son after 5 minutes racing even in the hotest days in our summer, we were racing each other and my system was not a GM one on that time. I can tell you the diference.
I believe electric cars drivers must put in their heads electrics are not those "small" cars of 20 years ago, electrics must, and I repeat must, move to bigger tracks, and stop racing in the tracks done to Mabuchi 540 motors.
Electrics, are today, faster than nitro so I think it is no dificult to accept that.
I am no longer racing 1/10 electric as I move to 1/8 Off-Road, electric too, but I want to congratulate GM for their fine equipments, to me the best for 1/10 racing, by far, and i never understood the reason of so many drivers using those equipments of "that color that is better". Or perhaps I do.
