Howard....I ran the 13.5 in my car with a 1.25 roll out and it was just as fast as everyone elses car on the straight....it wasnt lacking there.

Bob....Every time we run 19t we are always geared higher then stock on the same track. With the KD's compaired to the 27's its usually 2 teeth higher....with the C2 its even more. This is with foams or rubbers they are always geared higher then stock....even with the new batteries.

Just my .02
Nope....totally understood, I am very new to electric car and I am sure my gearing is not right at all, I am actually taking your note and will give that a try myself.

KK....well, I do not know where is the problem, but I did ran several laps (espeically on the straight) along side with Robk's RDX with the Co27....same time entering the corner and full throttle to the straight....it is simply slower, I ran that in purpose just to see can 13.5 be par with tunned stock motor. I was using your suggested 34/116................the ONLY problem I think my car is slower is because....my foam was little bit less then 54mm?

Body roll is not a bad thing if it is fast but if your car is hard to drive I would try a stiffer front sway bar first. You could stand up the front shocks. This will make the car stay flatter but it will react faster.

Just keep an eye in your average lap times. Fast laps mean nothing...its your average lap times that mean you are getting faster or slower.

I suspect that you will lose corner speed if you take out too much body roll. We have been testing softer than 14lb springs (Schu White) and the car gets even faster

FYI, I bet you buddy would be faster if he could get his car to roll more but don't tell him that...lol!
Which manufactures make softer springs that will fit the EC?

And what colours are they?

Thanks

Default Springs

Teemu Leino was using Asso silver springs in the rear, sometimes in the front as well. They are just a little softer then the shuie white.

C2 vs Atlas

Hi can anyone help to tell me the main difference between these two 19t motors?

As in gearing, brushes etc - compared to stock

I'm going to give 19t a go

Many thanks

Matt

The Atlas is a better motor for sedans than the C2. The C2 and Komodo use stock grade magnets that weaken when the get hot. This is no problem if you run indoors or during winter but outside in the summer the C2 and Komodo are at a disadvantage.

Here in FL the top 19T motors are the Peak/Orion-Vantage/Element and the CP Money 19.

Honestly then I think your stock motors were tuned wayyy differently. I remember thinking the same way you did but I was getting smoked by Cuffs, Schreff and the others....I talked to them and hey what do ya know. throw a huge gear on it LOL

Hi Guys

I just bought a MI2EC USA Foam Spec.

As i race mostly on Asphalt with Foam tires, i decided to get the foam spec, should i have got the normal MI2EC ?

Thanks

Off to carpet wars tomorrow. Using LRP Vtec 24's and a large (LARGE) track (36m straight).

Any tips on gearing the new CO27 ?? And have any of you used tyre warmers prior to your heat ?
