You are correct about the conditions changing - the sun was in and out all day Sunday & Saturday. - the Fuel classes were ran late in the day, etc.

Ryan was pitting right next to me all weekend, and he was running his TH EPA at 85% in an effort to go the full 12 minutes. It turned out that was not necessary at all, as at the end of the 12 minute main, he had roughly 1800mah left in his packs.

At full EPA I'm sure he could have obliterated any lap time for any class at any point in the day.

Hi Mike,

I spoke to the guys at Associated earlier today and they said he ran the 2650/kv motor. Perhaps he switched it out at the last minute....LOL

Either way he ran the Castle MMM and Castle motor and was on RAILS!

If I had a choice I'd run the 2200/kv motor and that's what I recommended to them

Best regards,

Unfortunately it would have been pretty much impossible for it to be a 2650kv motor.........since we have only had about a dozen produced so far and I can account for where each one is pretty much. Also the fact that the 4 motors we sent them a couple of weeks ago were all 2200kv motors that I personally pulled from production and gave to Joe Ford with instructions to ship them to Associated. Not really trying to argue with you Tony and I am saying all this with total respect but I just want to make sure the correct information is out there. Though I suppose its possible that Associated found one of the few people in the world that has one of our 2650kv motors and used it.........not likely though. Like you said though either way he ran dam good with it.

Hi Mike, (I copy and pasted this reply from the other thread....LOL)

I'm glad you said that cause I wasn't argueing either.

I too want to know that the correct info is out there. I emailed Sean, Rick and Richard again to confirm which motor he ran. After they said he ran the 2650, it just made sense to me that he ran the 2650/kv motor when they said he ran a 15T pinion. My guess is if he ran the 2200/kv motor he would have used a much bigger pinion in the RC8 (like a 19T) due to the very low gear ratios in the diffs on the AE car (43T ring gear and 10T pinion). The mah per minute they consumed on the 35C Reedy 5000mah batteries also made sense with the higher KV motor. I'll re-post after I hear back from the King himself....LOL

The confusion over the motor was my fault. When the motors came in there was no information with them. I checked Castles website for information and then miss measured the motor so I thought that we had the 2650kV. Plus based on the gearing and the speed I just assumed it was a 2650kV.

My bad, sorry about the confusion.
