I dont know if you car really judge corner speed in mod at that race,,, its not the biggest of tracks and with the power the brushless motors had in mod they were basically pushing the cars around the track in mod foam...

In stock (13.5 foam ) jucha's tc5 had more corner speed than any car in that a main. you could see him killing everyone in the sweeper.

Well I guess we just disagree not the first time
Mikes car was the best looking (handling) car I ever saw on high bite carpet.

The main difference between the setup he was running before the race and during the race is he went with thicker oil and a bigger piston instead of running lighter oil smaller piston. The car has insane corner speed when you do this but makes it harder to drive. That was what I noticed when I was driving the PHI. It should carry over though.

I will be running a Trinity 27t with LRP Sphere ESC. The track is quite small and technical. What gearing should i be looking at? I have 22t and 23t pinions and i can't remember what size the spur is but i can tell you tonight.

Thanks, Jacob.

Thank you. I am not sure if i will need a separate lipo cutoff with the sphere, because it only says lipo adaptable. Any help?

I saw Juchas car and it had ridiculous cornerspeed in that sweeper versus the other stock cars. I really don't consider what Blackstock was doing since he ran modified, which is really a different ball of wax. Not to mention, it's really a moot point since he will be running an Associated car this winter.
