I'm quite happy with my four Novak Havoc 1s ESCs with their built-in boosters. I use the Novak Smart Boost for my ESCs that don't have the booster built-in.

Now we should probably get back on topic.

Could someone please post Smyka's and Lambert's setups from the IIC? Trying to get a baseline for my 17.5 setup on high bite carpet.

Our local club runs 10.5 blinky on a quite small (7 sec lap) track.

An 8 minute run takes about 2500mah from the pack (Revtech motor and LiPo).

It depends on the class and the track. At our local track with 13.5 blinky I come off the track with only about 500-800mah to spare. At the IIC in 13.5 blinky I had a bit more at the end of the run but not much.

Yes I was using the 4200mah shorty pack. When I get my Xti I plan to go back to a normal sized 1 cell pack.
