HI guys was wondering if anyone can offer some experience.
Am new to electric racing and was wondering if anyone can tell me a few things, I have a HB Cyclone S and a ratio of 2.473 running 81 Spur and 52 Pinion and a roll out of 51mm. We run on a large track using silver cans and limited to 1500mah nicads. I race against Tamiya TA05/416 etc, T2's, Yoko's, TC4's etc
Am looking to make some changes to get better acceleration and a bit more speed and runtime (I only have about half a lap left in the batts after a run), I don't keep up off the start line and don't seem to have the legs on the back straight, I don't think its going to be easy though!
1. If I lower the internal ratio to 2.16 will this give me better acceleration?
2. With an internal Ratio lowered to 2.16 I can still run the same rollout of 51mm would my runtime remain the same/less/more?
3. Would a front spool save speed/runtime?
4. Are thier any tricks to getting more runtime?
Thanks in advance!
