It hasn't been posted anywhere yet. I havn't got my car back yet. I'll record that setup and post it as soon as I get it.

Does anyone know if Josh Cyrul's setup for the IIC in Vegas is posted anywhere yet? I'm more interested in the # of turn motors that they were running in the Mod class. Thanks!

5.0's and 5.5's. Depends on the specific motor. Like a 5.5 LRP is as fast as a 4.5 duo.

I will get my setup to EJ for what we ran down there.....

Although luck was not on my side down there I ran a 10.6 lap and was on a 28 lap run.... before the lights went out. A good neutral car that you could really huck around if needed.

Thanks Michale and EJ. and Congrats Dustin

Jerry was running this setup pretty much, in amateur, I know he won't be looking at an RC car for a few days, but maybe he can comment on the small changes. It's EJ's basic setup for the lipo car.

Hmmm... odd... So if I were wanting to buy the Tekin equivalent, can anyone chime in if the Tekin 4.5 would be equivalent for that size track?

Either way, seems like it's major overkill for a 10 second track to be running that low a # of turn motors...

When your pro, who cares? Tekin 4.5's are really slow compared to a LRP 4.5.

Very true... I always thought that the pros ran their motors "once". I.e. - that they didn't care if they over heated since there's so much at stake.

But the LRP 4.5 much faster than the Tekin 4.5? Is this fact or just brand loyalty on your part? It's a serious question since I am just getting back into racing and need to buy sets of BL motors for the first time. I was leaning towards the Tekin RS Pro speed control and the 4.5, 13.5 and 17.5 motors.

Can others chime in also?

Just ask JayL on here. He was running a Tekin 4.5, dropped in a LRP 4.5 and could not even drive his car the same way. And not brand loyalty, I could care less what motor I run. I don't like the newer Tekin stuff, but it is really fast in stock no doubt.

I like the LRP 17.5 over the Tekin. The LRP motors were very durable while I was running them. Recently switched to the BOSS SP V3 motors. Kevin Hebert had an interview at the ROAR Nats (I believe) and said that he always runs a 4.5 and adjusts timing in the ESC to match the track. Not sure if that was for 1/12 or TC, but it shows that they want the power available to them.

I'm running a LRP 5.0. It is decent rite now, running temps of 160 on a warm day. I can put a lot more gear on it, since LRP's can run hot as heck, I just have not felt like it yet.

I was thinking more about Tekin speedos, not motors, as far as tekins being fast .

I agree with you. I saw an LRP motor temp at 280. He turned down the timing and put it back on the track. Still ran strong.
