Last weekend i used Sphere comp. together with 4 star motor and i could discharge around 600-700mAh with 20Amps after 5min heat. As oneway was in front, i had to be careful with thorttle and couldnt push hard, maybe that was a reason why there was so much energy left

I recently bought a Novak 5.5 system in my TRF415MS, bashing around my work parking lot I've gotten 15-20 minutes out of a pack of GP3300's. I wasn't going flat out the whole time because there's too many car's around (being a car dealership) but I was very happy with how long it lasted.

I get about 6 to 7 mins out of a 3800 with the 4.5 and near 8 mins with a 5.5.

Now that's funny... On a 150 foot straight, I was motoring right past a guy running a modded engine with a 2 speed in his R40. So to be so dense as to think that your little nitro car can keep up with a brushless that's setup properly is just silly.

Maybe on a long, sweeping track with no tight turns, a nitro car would have an advantage. But on a track with one long straight and a technical infield, a properly setup electric car will definitely have the advantage. You can think what you want and keep your blinders on, but nitro is NOT the ultimate speed machine anymore in 1/10 touring.

Yeah, you can be faster in infield, no argue here. But you still can't blow pass a well tune mod nitro car in the main straight with electric motor(not yet), that's the fact.

Well, I'll just have to get some video of it to erase any doubts. Hopefully, I can do that this weekend. If I do, I'll post a link.

Video is not going to work, I have seen a 27T stock pass a 19T in the main straight, only because that 19T hasn't cut comm and change brushes for 40 runs. The same apply, I run electric mod and blow pass many mod nitro in the main straight, but those were cheap or out of tune mod engine, a good, well tune mod engine has so much power, scary.

Yeah funny world...

I sometimes run on a giant gas track. It'd big enough for the 1/5 scale gas racers.. it's BIG>..

With my GTB 5.5 i am just as fast as the great majority of gas cars in practice. Most of them are in reasonable to poor tune. Definately not in a high race-ready tune...

However, i'm much more consistent over a lap, and if anything i'm faster through the twisties even when i'm coasting with the one-way. They have brutal acceleration on their foam tires but they still can't hold position consistently...

I have no doubt however, that a proper high grade gas car in race tune would obliterate the 5.5R

I'm trying a 4.5 tomorrow and i'll let you know... but it would be pretty close. Again i think i'd be more consistent. Outright power??... will have to be seen. I'm not sure it's that clear...

WHen i saw my first gas race i nearly wet myself.. WOw. fast..

But now that i've run electric mod for a while, i'm not so sure.. Somehow those gas cars seem to pull very very hard. I think it's more tires than anything..

I guess someone never saw a pancar with a 8 or 9T, those things are fast, very fast (if you can handle it and it handles well) and I doubt any nitro will be faster...

I wouldnt wanna see a 4.5 in a pancar , Wayyy too fast (for me anyway)

I thought to date the electric car holds the highest top speed. Around 120-130mph.

But they do have them gas cars that are secured to a poll and go in a small circle and go about 200mph.

Well the electric drag cars are much quicker than the nitro ones. I they go from 0 to 130 km/h in 1.6 secs or something like that.

We were talking about 1/10 nitro and electric touring car, people. Not drag car or land speed record, anyway, those cars use 18-30 cells, are you going to throw 18 cells in your 1/10 touring with 6cell 7.2v you just can't beat a well tune mod nitro car with 2 speed in the main straight, that's it.
