i have a yokomo bd5, onroad with hitec radio gear.
the car is very light due to the chassis and bracing being made of carbon fibre, and the rest of the cars parts are plastic and aluminium alloy.
the car had a 17t brushed motor, and novatech esc.
ive now ordered (and will soon fit) a castle creations sidewinder 5700kv esc motor combo.
ive heard this system getting trucks up to 40mph! they weight alot more than my little carbon car, so what is an expected top speed with stock gearing and 5000mah, 7.2v nimh battery.
also, im looking to get a 2s lipo to maximise its performance. what type of battery would be the best to buy for top end speed(and fairly good run time), with the sidewinder combo.
also, what is a decent gear ratio(can you post pinion and spur sizes), for top speed and moderate acceleration.
