I ran mod 2wd buggy, mod 2wd sct, and mod 4wd buggy.

2wd buggy: i had a rough day. Friday started off with my speed passion reventon pro getting the dreded "brick" issue when an update failed. So saturday was race day and i qaulified 8th into the amain. With factory associated driver chris jarosz taking tq and local fast kid and tekin driver derek s taking second. After a rough start and dealing with some traffic i finished 7th in the amain.
My peerless motor and batteries ran great with awesome power.

Mod 4wd buggy: I had some rough qauls dealing with traffic but i still made the amain and started in 5th place.. i made a hard charge for 3rd place late in the amain and got tangled with lap traffic on the last lap and finished 4th.

Mod 2wd sc: i had some decent quals and made it into the amain starting 3rd on the grid. Got a great start and was in 2nd place but the driver behind me decided to use me as the brakes for ever corner ruining both our chances to podium and i finished 5th after some horrible driving.

Although my peerless gear ran great and made awesome power all day!
Nice runs. Putting it into the show is always a plus!

Had a good day this past sat at the Jackson Rc Memorial Day trophie race running mod TC. I ended up qualifying 4th over all. The first lap in I was able to grab second but 12 laps in, I made a mistake and ended up falling back. I was able to pull some positions back to finish 4th. It was a fun day with some of the best drivers in the states making a showing in Mod and 17.5. The Speedzone packs performed great as expected.

Just to report, I set the new track record in the 13T Stock class with the 7200 mAh 80C Peerless pack. It gives an amazing power advantage in stock racing, really looking forward to the next nationals race

My local track had the first round of the night series saturday so my race report for 5/31.

I only ran 4wd buggy.
I set tq in round one with my speedzone 7.5 and peerless saddle pack. No one was able to better that time in round 2.

A-main: i got a good start but messed up a jump and fell back to 3rd place, after settling down i was able to catch back up and put pressure on the leader and he made a mistake and i regained the lead with 3 mins left on the clock and never looked back.

Tq and win for speedzone!

I also let my buddy run my mod car.
Speedzone 8.5 and speedzone 4600mah shorty.

He qualified near the top of the amain and finished 3rd.

He also ran my speedzone 4600mah shorty in his 17.5 car and again qualified at the top of the amain and took the win.

And again ran my speedzone 6300mah pack in his mod sct and tqed and won that class.

Over all great weekend at our track for speedzone!

Finally, after some delays due to bad weather, the off-road season has started. In the 1:8 electric buggy nationals I managed to finish second in a very competitive field. I was using the Speedzone 6500 4S pack and the power was awesome

Nice! That 4.0 will be more that plenty...keep the timing at zero to start, may even need to turn it down.

Marcus,

Charge your battery to 8.0 and gear it at 8.6 and you should be able to get it around the track. The lower voltage takes a lot of the initial snap out of the motor making it easy to drive.

If you do decide to turn the timing down I wouldn't reduce it any more than two marks. Try one mark first of course.
