I can't see any benefits coming from it... With the power that the current ESC's are throwing into the motors, they aren't far off from mod anymore.

I have done back to back testing between the Speed 6 and LTC-R on my WE. With a mod motor, the LTC-R was more aggressive entering the corners, and helped the car roll more. The Speed 6 was a bit less aggressive, and felt like the car drove flatter.

For mod, I'm going to use the LTC-R since I can use that extra steering to scrub speed on the entrance and then just power through the corner, for 13.5 it will be the Speed 6 to try to keep the speed up through the whole corner.

That's the LTC-R. I prefer the lightweight version of the body.

I believe the number is 1505-25. It is much less durable, but lighter weight so it handles much better in quick side-side transitions and lowers the CG on the car since there is less weight up high.

Hey Randy, do you get to run rubber/carpet much? What changes would you suggest from the base set up?

Thanks

Honestly I don't get to run much carpet at all. When I was able to, I really liked Jilles' LRP setup available at thard.co.uk if I remember correctly the only thing I did was add .5mm anti-dive.

In the past few weeks I have changed my setup a lot, and found a new setup "style" that's working really good on our local high-bite indoor asphalt track. I'm really wanting to try similar settings outdoors and on the rug to see how the results are there.
