maybe Charlie Bs suggestion of the 30T hpi motors would work no?
2nd issue, if there is a dying need for people to go all out and go brushless, sedan body dish wheels and i would have to agree i guess to start a so called "Open" class...but IMHO, there will be about 10 solid racers in this class, and eventually the cost will climb up and the class will die out anyway, so whats the point
anyway thats my .02
For brushless, i suggested the 21turn. It is the equivalent to a Mabuchi for speed. I wouldn't call it all out..just another option. I know people are scared of the "It will die out and be too competative". Well..come on now guys(and im not directing this to anyone) This is RACING...if the class dies, it is because people stop running that class...PERIOD.
We can all regulate what we run...so quit being scared of the "all out" thing. If i remember correctly, people were scared to run against the Atomic car..but at GLRC's 140' straight, my ABC was just as fast as the Atomic with ALL STOCK PARTS except for the springs...infact, Lee P SMOKED everyone with his ABC. I don't think putting a brushless will kill the class...a 17.5 or 13.5 will be overkill..but a 21.5 should be fine. Brushless didn't kill RCGT..it shouldn't kill the mini 4wd class. I mean...if it wasn;t meant to be competative, ABC wouldn't offer: C-fibe chassis, Spools, IFS suspension, Aluminum shocks...you get my point. Im down for anything guys...i didn't even break in my Black motor...so if that is still teh choice..i'll run it. Let's just not be afraid of technology or progress.
Have a great day peeps! I will be at Mazda today for practice..see ya all there!
