Being a major mail order house, they also have the most complete r/c inventory in all of NorCal.

Should be in your neighborhood.

Funny you should mention that...that is the indoor track I was talking about! Did I mention that I work there???

The problem, is no one at the shop has run their GenX with a 13.5. Kendall suggested that I get the 17.5, and I might at some point...but for now, I want stupid fast

If someone could just give me a number to shoot for as far as rollout...a ballpark...anything? I was talking to one of the guys there about it today, and he said that the 110 spur may be a little big, and I might not be able to get a proper mesh...he suggested I drop down to a 100.

EDIT: BTW, TIA meant Thanks in Advance...lmao

No idea about what you need, but ...
I run outdoors with a 155ft main straight, run 2S LiPo and Sealed HPI Saturn 20T (#1136), and for my track the roll out is 59.5 to 60.
I also run a 90T spur with 26T - 29T pinions (64dp)

I use a 13.5 with a 78 spur and 23 to 26 tooth pinion depending on the size of the tire and temp of the motor for a rollout around 55

I want stupid fast
The faster guys all use a 10.5 with a roll out around 49 to 50

We also use 7.4 volts lipo or C Cells

I agree with using a 98 or 100 spur for 13.5 or 17.5 motors. I alternate between these two spurs to get gearing where I want it. Suggest using Kimbrough gears because they are wider and can handle the power of the 13.5.

Initially had a 13.5 motor in my car and gearing was easy to determine (with a Sphere 07 ESC) after a few shakedown runs. Just kept checking motor temps after 2-3 minute runs. For the life of me, I cannot remember what I ended up with because 17.5 motors quickly became the standard for 2S lipos around here.

Too bad you have to "work" there...No point in traveling...

Funny you post this liink. From time to time I go through my old links and was watching this video last night. Good racing!

So what has been the turn out for pan cars lately? Do you see it growing, steady or the same?

We use soda pop syrup and water mixed. It only takes one coat sprayed on to a clean surface. So we have a leaf blower go over the track 1st to get rid of the dust.

Our out door is starting up on April 26th so we expect at least 12 to a max of 18 club pan cars. We did travel to a few away races and it seems we are the only club who has a lot of these cars.

We also will be holding our annual club race Speed Weekend on July 11/12 were there will be good turn out of cars. well worth the trip if you can make it up.

Posted this on the Bodyshell post, but thought I'd show it here as my Calandra took pole


Just thought I'd post Yesterdays FTD list from Aldershot (UK) as we had GT2 and GT3 running as one:

Pos Class Name - Chassis - Shell - Time - Avelap - Bestlap
1 GT3 Nigel Moss - Calandra - Honda NSX - 19:304.39 - 16.02 - 15.77
2 GT2 Rob Warren - Associated - Mulsanne - 19:307.10 - 16.16 - 15.59
3 GT2 Gerald Page - Associated - Lotus Elise - 19:307.79 - 16.19 - 15.56
4 GT3 Tim Webb - Associated - Corvette - 19:307.87 - 16.20 - 15.62
5 GT3 Jon Wilkins - Associated - Mulsanne - 19:311.66 - 16.40 - 16.03
6 GT3 Dave Skelton - Associated - Mulsanne - 19:316.11 - 16.63 - 16.09
7 GT3 Dave Tims - Tamiya - Mulsanne - 17:305.21 - 17.95 - 16.95
8 GT3 Matt Tims - Tamiya - Porsche 956 - 17:315.35 - 18.55 - 17.77
9 GT3 Scott Adderson - HPI - Mulsanne - 15:301.77 - 20.11 - 18.36

GT2 (4cell 10.5) was just a little faster than GT3 (2S Saturn 20T) on the main straight (last 3 were first time out with their cars)

Traction Roll: glue up your sidewalls and don't use traction compound across the whole front tire - maybe 1/2 or 1/3 to avoid the traction rolls... shorter cut tires help a lot too.
Im new to pan cars so this might be a stupid question but i dont know the answer..Whats the 3.14??
