What do you think about 19 turn class Hodgimoto? Think the extra weight savings will over come the loss of voltage?

See ya Sweetie

Good question, EA. I am, of course, wondering the same thing. What do YOU think?

For 19 turn I dont think the weight will overcome the extra power of 6 cell. One problem is that running the Reedy motor on a track that large with 6 cell the FDR would be in the 5.50-5.70 range. With 5 cell I would think it would be at around a 5.0 FDR....thats pushing the motor I think....But let me know what you learn this weekend

i think the option to run 5 cell at a lower weight is an awesome idea. it'll make it very clear what the advantageous setup is.

O boy, this has become another page in the "how many cells" debate...lol

All i know is i have run 4 and 5 cell in my car, and it is uber simple to try since the car is balenced well no matter how many cells... now practically speaking i would run 6 cell in 19 turn for sure, and maybe 5 cell in mod (BL would defiently solidify the choice, brushed would most likely run 6 cell).

Is there a repository of setups anywhere for this car or the last? Or, anybody have a rubber setup for the old car? I'm trying to get my head around a starting point at least in terms of what parts I'll need to get the car ready for rubber. If someone can PM me the hot rubber setup from the old car, that would be great.

Edit: On carpet, that is.

And the die-hard Corally troll makes the switch....

What happened to the Phi - I thought you were one of the famed few that got the chance to test this car.

You see, even when I haven't caused trouble in months, people try and bait me into more.

The RDX is a fine car, and served me well. I drove it for nearly two and a half years, and it was still capable of more than I had to offer.

I decided to switch to Losi because it clearly was designed with LiPo and brushless racers in mind, which suits me well since that's the combination I use. I also feel good about supporting a company that openly embraces the future.

I never drove the Phi, or even saw one in person, so I'm not sure where that came from. Who's the troll again? Anyway, I'm sure it's a fine car, but it seemed like much of the same, especially the arms, and I personally was ready for a change. I'm certain many people will win many races with that car in the future.

Anyway, duckman, even though I've done my best to retire from trolling, I'll be sure to keep an eye out for you specifically when I'm feeling ornery. One good troll deserves another.

There are a lot of setups still on www.jrxs.com including the Numan setup that worked everywhere on rubber tires.

Cool, I'll have another look. I had trouble registering last time I was there. Thanks!

With the Carbon LiPo, I'm running 7oz in the bottom of the LiPo tray to get my car over 51oz (with foams). The Platinum LiPo is 2.5oz heaver than the Carbon.

For electronics, I'm running the GTB (no fan), Futaba FASST receiver, and Futaba 9550 servo with a personal transponder. The Novak 13.5 Pro motor, and currently one fan on the motor.

I'm going to try the Platinum LiPo in the near future to see if the reason I'm slowing at the end of races is due to being too deep into the discharge curve of the 3200's. I'll probably remove 5 or 6 of the .5oz tungsten weights from the tray and add them to my carbon packs so they're the same weight as the Platinum, so I can easily rotate between them without affecting weight.
