Questions?? Turnigy Trackstar 1/8 scale help!


I'm new to RCtech.net but racing awhile. I have a Losi 10 SCTE. I have installed a 1/8 scale Turnigy Trackstar with proper ESC that they recomend. Its supposed to be as quick and powerful as the 8th scale Mamba monster. Its a 2650kv motor and I'm using Turnigy Nanotech 65c batteries. 16t pinion with stock spur gear. People with the same truck are running 8th scale and 10th scale mamba systems. 10th scale pro4's and are much faster than me. What should I do? Is there a simple ajustment that I'm missing? Will a different ESC help? I just feel that I'm not even competetive because of speed issue.

Hi, You failed to mention how many cells your running. I suspect your running a 2 cell pack and that motor would be fast on 3 or 4. I would keep adding gear and checking motor temps until you get the speed your looking for. Those tunigy motors are just OK but not the best performers.
