so i would like someone to answer me some questions
max Hp of a motor (i think that would be a 12 right?) =
max RPM of a motor =
and max km/h at official race =
and the same things for 1/8 scale
max HP of a motor ( 21 maybe ?) =
max RPM =
and top speed , Km/h also at official race =
also the brand of these motors
I play EP and GP. I race everything I own.... see my sig.
Seriously now..... GP is much better
The sound, The power, The speed, are really fascinating
Given a long straight track, engine cars are definetely faster than electric cars even with lipo & GTB 3.5R & crazy gear ratio.
Here some answers for your question. However, these are NOT absolute answers because there are lot's of engine brands and models in the market.
max Hp of a motor (i think that would be a 12 right?) = about 1.6 HP. Special Edition engines will be more than 1.6 HP
max RPM of a motor = about 43.800 rpm
and max km/h at official race = it's gear ratio vs track length dependent. 60 to 76 kph is possible numbers.
max HP of a motor ( .21 maybe ?) = about 2.5 HP
max RPM = about 45.300 rpm
and top speed = Just like the above. 80 to 100 kph are normally seen in most tracks.
Engines : Novarossi, JP, Ninja, RB, OS, MAX are popular brands.
The operating costs GP vs EP ? they are about the same most of time ..... or GP is slightly cheaper in some occasion.
