Until now we did run 13.5T and open ESC but now changing to 17.5T and Cirtix Club Race still using 2S.
What 17.5T motor do you run and what rollout? Do you run open ESC or also going with these stock spec ESC now?
Had no tracktime until now testing the new motors and ESC, have no clue but maybe first race next weekend with the new rules.
Ofcourse still using DB10RR.
The MACH indoor where i drive is a smallish carpet track with a straight of roughly 20-25mtr. You can even run larger tires without traction rolling as traction is medium, for now at least.
I tried the lilacs all around before but i had some serious issues with them, the back end would not stick and no traction at the back. It was very nervous to drive. lilacs all around might be possible with a complete 180 degrees setup change but softer back tires cured it for me instantly, although pinks were a little too soft. Magenta at the back and lilac or purple front is good (tried it already). Everyone ran 30-35 shore tires.
Our class is 17.5t 2s and open esc. Last year we had 13.5t, 2s and open esc. It was so fast that after 3 minutes of racing i had dry eyes cause you could not blink your eyes or your car would be smacked into a barrier.... or over it
. The races are 7 minutes so i was completly psyched out haha. There was't a moment of rest, not even on the straight. It was really too fast.
Even a few experienced modified pro10 drivers (by then they didn't drive WGT indoors yet) saw us drive and they were like holy crap that is a challenge to drive on such a small track.
So this year we chose 17.5t with open esc for indoor. It is still fast on the straight but more relaxing to drive (1/12 laptimes)
It is overall a better experience.
I ran 34mm rollout, with a tekin and a duo2 motor. I only use duo2 motors as i think they are the best match with the tekin (Duo2 10.5t for outdoors). Tekin setup with all the bells and whistles going on.
Although we have quite open rules we do not allow lemans style bodies. Any GT body is allowed though, even those not on the World GT body list.
