How fast is 4 cells compared with 6 cells ?
Is it fair to assume run time should be quite
I just converted my 2 pack of 6 cells to 3
pack of 4 cells. Or rather. 6 sets of 2 cells.
the EFRA 1/12 championship in Europe 2 years ago.
at first they allowed 6 and 4 cell to race together.
6 cells could only run a 17T spec motor (i beleive with bushings)
4 cells could run any motor. car weight was lighter
it ended up being a gaggle/fight. drivers protested/complained and the classes were split.
most of the top Euro drivers were running 4-cell, however started complaining after the first qual. the 4 cell guys were faster only in the infield. the 6 cell guys ruled all the straights due to the extra voltage/horsepower, never dumped with that 17T motor, and needed no rec-pks. the 4 cell cars had problems dealing with cars that weighed more and took different lines due to the weight.
the rep0rt on it was on WWW.TeamCRC.com
back then, probably gone now.
Associated may still sell a tape of the 1994 IFMAR onroad worlds in Holland or France . the 1/12 was run indoor on carpet with 6-cells (1700 cells). talk about FAST! most indoor carpet racing even back then was usually done with 4-cells, don't know why they ran 6 at that worlds?
