For your issue with front traction thru the day....
Have you tried adding a little drag brake after the first round to help with weight transfer going into a corner? I did this recently (it never occurred to me as I had 2 or 3 sets of tires my race day) and it mad a huge difference. Just a touch or 2 after the 1st and maybe another after the 3rd. I ended up dropping 3/4 of a second thru out the day. while everyone stayed at 1st heat pace. Moved me from the middle/ end of the B to top 4-5 in the A. Yeah, its that close. Good luck.
yeh, I was thinking bout that. it is pretty easy tio change drag break and I can even pre setup profiles for quick changing track side. might do that

Ok. So it looks like my best bet is to go mid motor. Next question... Is there a good outdoor rear motor east coast setup anyone can recommend?

I would start with frank roots ocrc setup. I have used it on many different surfaces and it works for me everywhere but medium to high bite.

I have only had them about two weeks and have cycled each battery about 3 times. (not a lot of time to run sionce I have had them) They feel great though and I think once I get them broke in they may be my new battery. But the Protek 100C 2s 3200 Mah battery is by far the best battery I have run in stock.


This R1 Wurks may replace it soon if it keeps getting better. For the price I wont complain either.

That build, specifically the electronics layout, looks better than most - even from the seasoned guys!

Have someone experienced assist you with soldering the wires onto the motor...other than that it looks pretty good for a first build.

Thanks for the feedback. Yeah I'm going to the track for the first time Sunday. Hopefully someone there can help me clean up my soldering a bit.

Yes, the Bell Crank Steering system requires new bell cranks to get the revised ackermann needed and to ensure everyone can get full travel form their servos. The TLR system also requires no modifications, and the servo will mount in its designed/original location with the correct shimming and all.

The good news is, we learned a lot about some of the order quantities from the 2.0 parts, and I feel we should be very well prepared to have enough on hand for the bell crank system and support parts.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
