have an spx & thought it was great, now have a tekin with the latest software version done back to back testing in identical cars & the tekin kills the spx (sorry this is probably not what u whant to here)

One of my silver cans controlled by a Novak Explorer in an old F103 from years gone by is just as fast as the new one currently in my F104 with a Quantum3. In my "spec" touring car, I've gone brushless and have been through 3 speedo and 4 motor combinations in the past 6 months.....just saying.

Maybe the new Novak 25.5 will be the silvercan answer

seems we will need to use and buy a tekin rs in brushless class (except for mod). irregardless of motor (25.5, 21.5, 17.5, 13.5). not cheap for the "spirit" of silvercan class.

The good idea would be to have no Boost or Turbo speedo's for the class. To get new racer's interested in Touring Car Racing you have to have something to start with the is entry level without having to buy all of this new technology. I still would like to see a 21.5 Sedan Class. T/A is going to a 25.5 this fall with a spec speedo. At this time 5 speedos.

Hi there,

Just wondering if you guys are all gearing your 21.5s at about a 40 rollout? Or are you putting them down abit?

Default Rolling out

Locally, everyone seems to run their VTA cars at or around the 4.2 FDR on an outdoor flowing layout with a fairly long straight. With the spec tires, that works out to a rollout of around 48mm. A 5.0 FDR would be about a 40 rollout -- probably ok for a tight track with a short straight. You didn't mention what car you have, but VTA cars are 1450gr minimum and boost is outlawed.

To your last point, I have often thought about putting my car down -- it would be the humane thing to do

48? Wow! Wouldnt that absolutely kill a silver can? I run a mildly worked TA05 in 540 and was on about 43mm, after 6 minutes it was well over 110 degrees celcius.

Right now I m just messing around with a 21.5 and have it geared at 40. You reckon it ll be safe to push it up to 45mm?

Buy or borrow a temp gun. Go up in small increments to be safe.
With a non timing esc in a touring car , I have had a Novak to 60mm roll-out
This was on a tight indoor track . Outdoors would be higher on a larger track.
A timing advance esc will mean a huge drop. 45mm may be better in this instance.

Awesome, i ll give it a go. I ll start at 45 and see how it runs.

I m using a Tekin but not messing with the timing or turbo boost just yet.
