This week I had a brushed motor. Next week I'll have a brushless motor and if I get a lipo by then my lap times will be considerably better.

I already want to head back out there....

Trust me, don't get to much power or you'll go backwards. If I were you, don't get a motor bigger than a 13.5, if you do get a 13.5, run the NiMh batteries for a few races first. If you want to save money in the long run, buy quality electronics, you'll only have to buy them once.

13.5 isnt crazy power man. And i believe you cant still run in novice with a 13.5 because i think it strictly pertains to your skill level. You'll know when to make the move up to stock once your consistently puttin a whoopin on the novice crowd.

Well I was thinkin of getting a 10.5. My confidence can handle it and I know my reflex/coordination would too, but as a racer, do you think its too big of a jump?

I figure run with the best, learn with the best, become the best.....
thats how Ive always learned......Although I know this aint hockey but isn't it all in confidence and practice?

Confidence is good but can get you in trouble sometimes. Example: " I think i can make that jump" or " I can take the sweeper a little faster". A broken shock tower, 2 a arms, and a steering knuckle later and you'll think differently. lol. Plus i think you'll like the stock class. The racing is alot closer. The guys in 10.5 are wayyyy fast.

Yes, but stock guys are running less than a second behind in lap times so it doesn't really matter at this point....there is no class for lower level drivers so just run what you have.

Used to get 30 in Pro 2 now its under 10 and everyone else is running stock so to speak....
