What thickness would be a good starting point for front swaybars on carpet?

Brushless is going to have massive amounts of torque. The Revolution motors are know for lacking in that area. They'll probably have about the same top end but the power band is going to be totally different.

At the Nats they had a brushless class with Novak supplying the motor and controller for use to anyone that signed up, the speeds were closer to 19 turn than to modified, go here:

http://www.rc-cars.com/enats/Nats_Finals.htm

Notice that the brushless turn was a 7 minute heat and I just took the fastest A main runs (rounded for math purposes):

Brushless - 26 laps - 7 minutes = 3.71 laps per minute,
19 turn - 20 laps - 5.25 minutes = 3.8 laps per minute
Modified - 20 laps - 5 minutes = 4.0 laps per minute.

it isnt really true because the guys were not the same in both classes. The guys in the brushless are not as fast as the open mod guys so it can't be compared this way I think...

Default High bite

Foam tires on oxcite carpet is considered a high bite track?


Would un-prepared parking lot be low bite?
Swept and sugar watered parking lot?

What about sealed prepared asphalt (not a parking lot)?
