Just another data point. Got to run my car again yesterday.
LRP Sphere comp switch turned off all wires intact
180mah lipo receiver pack with voltage regulator
vector x11 10.5
rollout ~ 89 - 93 mm (tried 2 different pinions 74/44 & 74/46)
6 minute races
total car weight just over 794g
On each run i was using ~1300 - 1500 mA.
Receiver battery was using ~ 40 mA.
Motor was just warm.
I won't compare race times because I can't drive fast yet. However, I did try one of the "fast guy's" cars with a 4 cell pack and didn't notice a huge difference.
Next race I will probably try larger pinions until the motor starts to get hot or I can't control the car any more
Carter who is still hooked on 1s lipo.
Btw, has anyone tried running the same motor as 4 cell and just gearing up to compensate?
