Our track is really big for touring is made more for 1/8 and 1/5 but still racing lower class on asphalt.
8.5 boosted will potentially be faster than 5.5 non boosted.
Running boosted does open up a can of worms.
If you wanted to keep a set class, you are best off running any motor in a blinky class as speedo settings can be the difference between 1st and 10th.
In the UK this year 10.5t boosted was the chosen instead of open modified class - the difference in speed was negligible - just a lot of hot/blown up motors.
Next year, open mod is the chosen class again.
