Hi Michal,

we all use standart 1600mAh NiMh Batterys,
With your configuration you can also use only 4 cells if you have an older Chassis, Patrick, Ronald, Jilles, they all was using 4 cells.
Since "2012 EC Kit" you can use standart 5 cell side by side Batterys.

Also, with LiFe or LiPo you have to add weight in another way.

And at least, i saw many Cars burn down for LiFe and LiPo B!atterys!!!

Well just to share with you guys/gals,

New stage of Minituerkas RC Open Championship (2nd of the year).

I got TQ on 1/10 Nitro Sedan with the V10, and then on A-Main due to my idle being too low my engine flamed out during one refuel (30 minute A-Main) so i ended in 4th place.

Ohhh i made the Track record for the given layout, so very happy overall,

The one in the middle is my V10, the white one is my electric touring and big one GT Nitro car :



regards,

Well, another amazing nitro onroad weekend with my Velox V10 (Eleven)

This time the event : 2nd Stage -Nitro Onroad Chilean Championship 2013

Classes : 1/10 Nitro Sedan (IFMAR Rulebook) and 1/8 Onroad 3T (1/8 open nitro chassis, but with 3 ports engines only and 16% nitro fuel).

My classes : 1/10 Nitro Sedan

Saturday was full practices, i headed to track by 8am, arriving by 9am and practiced something like 7 tanks before leaving. Main objective was to learn the layout (first time on this track) and build a basic setup for the track. Very happy as my little son (5 years old) was very very interested into RC this weekend ans asked me to go to track with me so we woke up by 7am, went out to highway, made a breakfast stop, got some water and food for the day and continued to track.

Sunday was race day, and wooowww ... my little son was very tired from prior day but he insisted on going to track with me again ... so amazing to see this kind of interest so i have a race buddy once again lol !. Qualifiers went good, lots of fast drivers with special attencion in 4-5 of them making amazingly fast laps. I was not the fastest but for my surprise i got very but very consistant laps and after 3 qualifiers my best lap had a difference of only 0.3s v/s my average lap time so i was very very happy and got the TQ for the day.

On A-Main (30 minutes) main issue were tyre wear. The track had medium grip but a very high tyre wear rate (at least very high compared to my local track) so i decided to make the A-Main on 37 Fronts and 40 Rears, 61,5mm front and 64mm rear ... very high if i compare same race time on the other 2 tracks participating on the championship. Going in 3rd place I got a flame out by second refuel due a misscalculation of refuel (we forced an extension of time for second refuel but engine consumed more fuel during that second 4:30 minutes), and lost about 6 laps going down to 6th place. By minute 25 i got 2nd place and stayed on that place until the end of race, but 3 1/2 laps behind the leader. By end of race, 2nd place for me 4 laps behind leader and 2 laps in front of 3rd. Amazing result, great racing environment and best of all, my kid always on my side giving me force to race !!! ... Tyres ended very low, fronts on 54mm and rears on 57mm !!! ...

I will need a change of engine soon, im using XXXV Sirio engines and even when is very very good and reliable, is not so good on top end and im "giving" couple meters by lap to the fastest guys on straight.

A very big THANKS to my sponsors : Team Shepherd Chile, Kosmic Fuels, EG Hobbies Chile, VP PRO and Avid RC. And of course thanks Team Shepherd factory for helping me on car tips once in a while and Nuggets racing for those "emergency parts pack" you always save me with ... specially considering the long distance between our countries ...

So, Team Shepherd Chile did a good job conquering 2nd, 3rd and 4th places on A-Main. Thanks Massimo Cairoli for all the support !

Here you have couple pics ... thanks again :

CACH Track, clean and ready :

Well guys ... first of all, this will be my last post here.

Im leaving my country Shepherd Team (Chile, Southamerica) due to some very bad attitude with me from national distributor. Even with that, i had 3rd stage of national champs this last weekend and being in 2nd overall position with Shepherd, i offered to give back my sponsored car AFTER the race and this guy didnt care about brand positioning and asked for the car inmediatly ... soooo, i spoke with a friend who had a used, not prepared for race and abandoned Shepherd V10 and he let me use his car for the race ... i spend whole night friday and saturday preparing the chassis for the race (even when my sponsored car was and is still on my hands, fully built and prepared, but for respect to the distributor, even when he is very wrong attitude, i didnt used) ...

Even with all that and feeling a little frustrated by the situation, was a DREAM RACE ... you know, not being 100% prepared and all, and driving very conservative, lap times were going down and down on every heat ... by the end of qualifying, i was in 2nd place .

On 30 minutes amain i had a very very nice fight lap after lap during the first 10 minutes or so between the first 3-4 positions, i got the lead couple times and lost it couple times too ... but by minute 15 or so i took the lead and never look back again ended 1st by end of race, very very happy ...

Here couple pics, and good bye everybody !!!!, from the next stage on nats, i will be racing HPI R10 chassis, so bad and so sad for all, but maybe is a new door to open and try ...

... thanks to EVERYONE for the help on my queries, specially to Nuggets Racing crew and to Team Shepherd factory crew who helped me a lot with info and tips ... see you next time !!! :







ps : - Im "Patricio Concha" lol !!!

hi!

I already checked my tank capacity.

I put max fuel, pipe to carb wasn't empty, there was fuel up to end, then I close cap.

Then push air to tank and take fuel to my measure tool (taken from my sister, chemistry master ) and 3x 73.5ccm.

Anyone check how many fuel is in V10 ?

No insert in tank.

Regards
m

RedRC also have an article on their visit to the Shepherd facilities which is an enjoyable read.
