Had some fun out at Kissimmee Raceway today (of course I forgot my camera ). I was the only one there with a GT, but it was awesome just to get out on a real track. Car ran great, maybe a little hot, but it was like 95F out and the track was temped at 135F at it's hottest. Motor got to about 165F, ESC a bit less, so a little higher than I like but still safe. Some of the 1/10 TC guys were coming off at 200F+!!!

I actually did a lot better at driving than I thought I would. Started out just focusing on going consistent instead of fast, and by the end of the day I was making pretty quick laps. One run I used my EagleTree datalogger, max current spike down the straight was 90A producing 1225W power.

Lot's of the 1/10 TC guys were interested in the GT and I directed them to this thread, so hopefully we get a few more converts.

Hi Clay - Same Clay I met at the track today right? Your GT8E car looked great while you were out practicing. All of us were like, who's orange and white car is that? FAST and Smooth.

Anyhow, great to meet you. I hope we get to see you and your car at many more of OC Circuits races. This class is soooooooo much fun.

Jai

No worries bro! I was on call this weekend and got called out right before the mains. Charlie was kind enough to move GT8E's main to the first race so I could run and split.

Everybody that didn't come out to race with us this time around really missed a spectacular day of racing. F1 is just plain awesome and GT8E......SOOOOO MUCH fun.

We've got some newcomers that will hopefully be joining us soon. Clay's car looked great! Smooth and fast and Tony P was out to play as well. Unfortunately he had motor issues and was unable to join in on the fun. (dodged a bullet there as his car was strapped!!!)

I was able to make some changes to my car which made it easier to drive faster. I'm very happy with it and I can't wait to run with all of you again soon.

Thanks for a fun day guys.

Jai

Thanks for the kind words Jai. Fun to meet you guys and see what all the hype is about. Definitely some serious fun going on out there. Today was the first time I'd had my car on a track .. a quick reminder of how out of practice I am. Your car was so dialed for the last qualifier I don't see how you could lose..... so how did that main event turn out?

Out of practice? man, don't wanna see you at your best then. lol. The main was a lot of fun. Me and SNR had a pretty good battle going on. I was lucky enough to pull out a win this time around.

Can't wait to run with you soon!

Jai

Check out this beast, 121 mph!

http://www.youtube.com/user/romeo032.../0/GdB_6S-lVyQ

Could very well be the fastest 1/8 GT on earth.

What's he running in that? I run a 2650kv, 2 speed and 6s and cannot get close to that. 85 tops for me.

Would love to know.
Thanks

I wouldn't think that would get them to 121mph unless they are running 8s-10s or a motor that I am not familiar with.

Nitrohouse's almost hit 90mph and that thing was tweaked and what I modeled mine after. Can't imagine getting another 30mph.

Anyway, not a huge deal. Just curious.

Sounds like it's going to be a great show on the 19th at Corona. Looking forward to see a whole bunch of GT8s "trading paint", hopefully not too much. Let's hope for some great weather.

Thats what it sounds like to me too, I'll try to get some more info from Jr, but seriously doubt he'll give up much. We sponsor him with tires and thats the extent of it really.

If you look at some of the other videos he's been running 119mph for a while. His car is insane to watch, real scary at that speed.
