I ran thunder power 5300 65c's last Thursday and I dumped on the final lap. I usually run Turnigy 20c's which give me 12-14 minutes.

Use a 12t-14t pinion, 5000mah+, 30c-40c and you will make over ten minutes. ...I do anyway. (I run the Novak 550 4.5 12mm and the Tekin sc4.5) I'll be testing the Novak Truhe 14mm motor for the next couple weeks. ...will let you know.

i have some 5000 30 C batterys and i can feel the difference between them and my 5600 65 C. i have no problem making 10 min mains so the C rating is not the issue. and no im not over geared , batterys make a HUGE difference

How many guys/gals have the short course buggies now ? i would like to see a class for the short course buggies , i have one and its sits on the shelf collecting dust. If i can get a show of hands that have one that wants to race and see if there would be enough to maybe form a class of these fun cars .

Isaac D ( he dont come on here so i raised hand for him LOL)

I know Clay F. has one and there was another guy out last weekend that was running one. Issac and his buddy (Kelly I think his name is). With you, that would be 5 guys.
