If so, let us know your findings.
Perfect timing, as I just got back from our local track and did 3 packs using an LRP 11X 4.0 turn motor and so far the speedy hold up. I started with 8.4 ratio (23.45mm rollout) as what is suggested with the 4.0 turn motor on big tracks and after 1 min the speedy went into thermal mode
The reason I think was I had the temp cut set to #4 (120 C) as I didn't want to burn my new speedy.
I decided to turn off the temp cut as it's actually the default setting and is recommended for advance user (like me
) and went down on pinion (9.43 ratio). I finished off the existing pack and did at least 3.5 mins with no hickups.
2nd pack, I did a solid 5 mins and bit run with the same setup
. On my
3rd pack I took the risk and went up a tooth on pinion (8.91ratio/22.22 mm rollout) and again a solid 5 min and a bit run.
I can wait for the next meet so I can see if my gearing is spot on with other mod runners, but for now I will be sticking on this setup. Im happy with the speed on the straight as I normally run 10.5 and its my first time on 4 turn mod. Mod lap times here are only 1-1.5 seconds different to 10.5 class.
I was running a spool setup on my 416, Top Racing 36 rubber tires & Intellect 4200mah 30 C lipo.
Track has plenty of grip as its asphalt and I was driving with full braking on some spots and is now summer here
so temps were close to 30 degrees so maybe on a cooler day I can gear up abit more.
