I do well over 100km/h with my tc4 gtb 3.5t, no boost.... If I add boost, it's over !!!!!
Yawn, top speed run on an infinite strait is irrelevant to the speed either nitro or electric can achieve on a specific track.
110mph you sure about that.
We were stuffing around with top speed when the 100mph traxxas came out and with the largest gearing I could fit into one of my old cars with a calculated max speed of about 140km/hr (2S LRP TC and 3.5T). Ended up having tyre failures (rubbers with inserts) before reaching top speed.
Ended up using with foams which held up ok but was still a step behind the Traxxas, 3S in the 1/10th would have been a different story.
