As an insider I can personnally back up what Adrian is saying. Just ask the Orion/Peak guys in the A-main at Reedy they all had equal power infact the only complaint we heard from our team was that everyone on the team had the same power. It's TEAM Orion and our drivers are treated as such.

Looks like the brushless ESC. I guess it is supposed to have more power than the Quantums.

it looks like maybe the LRP guys are running the brushless speedo regardless of whether its a brushed or brushless motor?

If they are running the brushless speedo(which it looks like)it is because it has double the fets which keep the speedo cooler and for the heat there that would make sense...

No Idea...everyone thinks its because of the radio system(if you read everyones post) but remember that 4th qualifer Paul Lemeiux is using Futaba also...so it could be different things....

Thats what I thought, but figured I ask.

Congrats to Lemiuex for continuing to be the man, as well as Viktor, youngest in the final I believe.

It may be a combo between the futaba radio and the Hara speedo(which is made by KO) but you never know...
