Here are few questions that I need to know: -
1) Do you run your GTB fan with 4 cells
2) Is the top end speed good on a large track?
3) What the gear ratio that you're running for large track?
I am now running my 1/12 with 5 cells and 5.5 BL. Unfortunately my L3 chassis is now damaged and I need to switch back to my L4 chassis. I am concern that with 4 cells, i wont be able to keep up with nitro cars.
1. Yep, works just fine. The only issue I had was that you need to make sure that the ESC is mounted RIGHT next to the center shock mount. You have to get the fan to fit right under the middle hump in your body. It is tight, but it works.
2 and 3. I am not sure of the MPH, but the car is really moving. I am running Fusion IB3800 cells and each is rated a little over 1.20v's. I think the cells really help. I have been working on the correct gearing over the last week or so. Right now, I am running a 96 spur, a 24 pinion with 45mm diameter rear tires. The roll out is really low but the car is working well but I could probably use some more tweaking here.
I am using the Nomadio radio so I can measure motor temps and battery volatge and both have been absolutely fine. No chance of thermalling at this point.
Finally, did you see that Novak just released the 4.5 Velociti. That must be sick!
Hope that helps. Let me know if you have other questions.
