sorry for the delayed response, I just returned to work today after the 1/12 Euro's on Gran Canaria.
We did well with our brushless systems, had 4 drivers in the A-main and a good advantage over the brushed guys, but unfortunately no drivers capable of winning this time...
@billtc3: sorry to hear about that, must have been an unfortunate crash that the plate came loose. You could return it to AE to get it fixed, but you could rather easily do it yourself. In case you'd like to do this:
- get good heat transfering paste (any good electronics store will offer this).
- clean the stickerplate and the fet's with alcohol.
- put a small amount of paste on all 3 rows of fet's and press the stickerplate back on.
- put a VERY SMALL amount of CA on the edges of the stickerplate to securely fix it.
@Team Girth: check the manual for gearing recommendations, in case you don't have it anymore you'll find it in the download section at www.lrp-electronic.de
@JanisK: since we just had the Euro's this weekend I can certainly answer this one quite well...
We had 3- and 4-Star available for the race and all drivers choose the 4-Star for this race, it simply had more power and still had plenty of runtime. We were using VTEC3700's (no 3800's or 4200's allowed!) and came off with 600-800mAh in all runs!
We ran 29-30mm rollout and power profile #3 with the 4-Star.
