GT10 / LiPo v NiMh
Picture shows lap times between to GT10's raced at R1 of the Nitroflight Challenge at Stocksbridge RC in the UK.
This was the first time we ran together head to head on the track in leg 2 of the A final.
I ran a BMI DB10R on NiMh, 10.5 Nosram on 57.7mmpr & 1040 grams
Jason the Speedmerchant on LiPo
Alan was CRC SMC 4900 lipo with a GM 10.5T geared at 63.2mm/rev 1028grms
others I can't comment on
NiMh had the punch & speed out of the corners and the straight. Out of the corner of the eye I could see the LiPo car looked to be a lot nimbler throught the twisty section but cars looked even on the more open corners.
My long lap was when I was sucked into the corner due to following Jason to close. After that I gave it the berries and you can just see I was marginally quicker chasing him down. Planned to follow him a little longer then leap past a little later. In the end Jason won by 0.5s.
