Congrats. 2 of the best cars presently on the market.
Re gearing, last week I ran my car with a 23 turn motor. i ran 5.3 for 8 minutes and still had plenty of battery left with 3300s, so I guess that Matt's ratio of 5 to 1 would be fine, especially for 5 minutes.
Our club's control stock motor is a 21 turn, and they race 5 minutes. I know guys that run as low as 4.7 but there are also guys running 5.2 that are just as quick, even in a straight line. I personally never believed in over gearing.
My BD still gives me constant pleasure. I just cannot get over the fact that the car is always right, even with old tyres. It's nice to be able to go down to the track, put it on the track, and know it's going to go well.
I don't think I've ever had a car like that.
