Exclamation

Also, did the team drivers try to throw more power(2.5t boosted) in the A700evo to see how well it can handle a power increase ???

Why on earth would you want to put in a 2.5 with boost when the general concensus within mod is that 4.5-5.0 is what you want to be running.

I don't play baseball(silly sport anyway...lol...) !!! The reason is just to test the new system's limits: what power can it handle??? Can it pass the ”Bert test” aka 2.5t boosted ???
Can it actually put the car in the mod lead position for good ??? The technology is sound, but the racers might be a little shy to try more power !!! We saw Pato win when he dared using a 3.5t boosted in a S411 ! He killed the competition ! Maybe that's what needs to happen here too... We'll know soon enough, because my A700 ex 2.5t boosted is almost ready ! LoL......ahahah.......

pretty sure you cant run 2.5t on anything higher than a 1s anyway as the motor just goes pop?

..bert do you have a a700? cant find any pics of it yet, and no your TC4 does not count

It's on the ”Bert” album, and I've seen 3.5t motors running on 4S before, so your argument is totally false.......
