Default hpi tires

the guy who won our national championiship this year uses hpi 23 up front and 27 at the rear. it doesn't work for me and I don't like to use different rubber front and rear.

There are a few occasions that I find it advantagous to use different tires front and rear, but not often. Most times its simpler for me to just tune with the chassis rather than using the different front and rear tires.

News from this past weekends racing in Australia..

Event: NSW On Road Championships

Corally C4.1's earned 2nd (Andy Cooke) and 7th (me!).

The competion consisted of a very fast TC3, Tamiya 414, and a bunch of X-Rays.

It was the first meeting that i decided to run a split top deck and the result was an awsome handling car! corner speed was very good. I also used a Corally One Way diff and very good Corally SMH cells.

The track was a large, high grip, flowing circuit. link to track ACT Radio Control Club

Full results should be uploaded within the next few days.


Luv my Corally!!!!!!!!!!!

Well this weekend was the last race of the year for one of our local large tracks. The day went pretty much like crap. But some how with all the problems I had, I managed to qualify 5th in the A-main. I pulled out a third place and was pretty much by myself there. The two lead cars were waaay too fast for me to catch, and I don't know where the forth and fifth place car was. So I guess it was another successful weekend for the Corally.

Darkside,
What company's (matcher) SMH's are you running? Are you running in stock or mod? Thanks. I want to pick up a couple packs of SMH's and need some opinions on quality matchers with good numbers and prices.

Hey Ty, I think you wanted to ask black-knight that question. He was the one using SMH cells. I use packs from the hated Trinity corp.

Well if Ty was asking me the details are:

SMH Cells are new Corally Team Packs c 589s. These cells are my main packs now, i will be testing the HV Sanyos but i really do like SMH cells.

I race in Modified touring classes (and sometime F1), i use Fantom and Orion motors. 9-14 turn winds.

hey B>K..how did you find the runtime on your corally smh?..

ive only run mine once, and they felt pretty good..

the voltage was slightly better than my orion sanyo 3k's..

but i think the smh will improve in the next few runs, as they hadnt been cycled at all..


what motor did you run at kambah?...last time there i think cookie won with a 12 turn..

but im not sure of what he ran this time..

I have a pack of B&T SMHs, they seem to have good runtime after I cycle them before each run...

The Corally SMH cells were very good, I did not dump at all during the day. I cycled them the night before race day and used each pack twice during the day (i was not willing to run my Sanyos on race day). Power was very good and consistant for the entire 5mins of each race.

In the motor department i took the conservative approach and went with a 13x2 Yokomo based Fantom. I tested a 10x2 Fantom/Yok motor some time ago and liked it so much that i have stuck with these motors a few months now. I used F320 brushes with 15-20 degrees of timing.

During the day i had noted that some of the other guys were using various 12's (Andrew Abbot had a 12x2, I think?), My top speed was fine but the lowers winds that were on the track produced better mid range power.

For MECA Challenge at Helles Park this weekend i will be running a similar setup but i will use a 12x2 Fantom/Yok motor. I plan on doing alot of work on the Dyno in the next couple of weeks testing various winds and brush/spring combos. I need to push my pace a littlie further if Iím to catch people like Andrew and Cookie!

There were alot of good drivers that failed to make the A's last Sunday, they were all using low winds with high silver brushes with incorrect timing, and at Canberra this means you will dump! I had learnt this lesson earlier in the year; I was determined not to dump this time!

Man I still find it hard to believe that people manage to dump using 3000 batteries. I run only 2400 cells, some matched some not, and I never get near dumping. Although when I run mod, I rarely go lower than 12-13turn. Maybe thats what the difference is.

anyway....

We're hoping to get at least one more week of on-road racing here. It all depends on what the weather does. Their also trying to find us a place where we can setup some carpet indoors and run all winter long. That would be cool.

When the road coarse nats were going the two top guys were running 8doubles overgeared by a few teeth and finished their 5 minute races with power to spare! No one else was running such low winds so were blown away. I'd like to have the batteries these guys were running!
I'm finding out efficiency is better with increased timing (like atleast 20 degrees). Not enough timing is wasting power and battery... you would think otherwise.
