I know its Halloween and all but you don't have to scare everybody.

There are some great guys out there that tune motors. I think they'll find a way to adapt to the times just like everyone else.

That said, I agree, there is still a lot of "magic" involved with brushes. Not to mention the "regular" guy will never see the big number motors or batteries.

Here's to leveling the field and let the driving speak. Not your "connections"

there is a track 70mi south of me that runs only 19T on asphalt with foams. they have recently been thinking about BL, i recommended the 4300 stock no mods to keep cost down. with the stock rotor being faster for onroad, but having to change it out regularly to maintain the edge maybe the sintered arm is the way to go. i also currently run on a small carpet track where we run 13.5/27T together. it's almost the same as the 4300 vs. 19T you guys talk about. the 27t's are faster on the straights and the 13.5 does better thru the infield

at our track 4300/19T run together in pan oval. with the sintered arms now the 19t's can't touch them, but that's oval.

just checking out the Omaha site and saw this...baffles me?

One of the guys earlier was saying that in Omaha, the "fast" guys are still in stock, which would probably explain why they're faster in stock than 4300. It doesn't take much for a good stock drivers to beat average 19T drivers, and the gap is even smaller between stock and 4300. Plus, isn't Matt Howard a pro?

Alex was in the 25's and is very good. However he has been running the offroad stuff in Omaha and hasn't been running TC. He borrowed a car for the weekend and worked in the store while racing. He would tell people what to change they would do it and he would go drive. Matt Howard is Losi sponsored and won two classes. So don't let the numbers listed fool or mislead anyone.

Just to add to that the best runs....

Stock Foam - Tony Block - 26 laps - 5:09
Stock Rubber - Matt Howard - 25 laps - 5:08
4300 Rubber - Alex Sturgeon - 25 laps - 5:12
19T Foam - Jari Taskila - 28 laps - 5:02

The true test is take MATT HOWARD who is really fast,and have him run the brushed sedan and then run the brushless and you will see the actual difference or similarities.Not to say Alex Sturgeon is not fast but its not really a comparison unless Alex is as fast as Matt. BTW,WTF is Matt Howard running stock for!?

Well I probably shouldn't speak for Matt but I know he wants to run rubber tires. Might have something to do with his sponsors I don't know. I think he mentioned if he had his Type R he was going to race 19T foam but he didn't.

Anyway like was mentioned its not fair to compare these results. We all know a 4300 is faster than stock. Although the results look odd if you had watched or raced there it really wasn't surprising.

I think that a driver who owns a battery company did a test. He ran 19T IB4200s and then ran Novak 4300 and li-po and was 2 to 3 tenths a lap faster with the 19T and IB4200s.

The brushless/li-po is not quite up to speed with a top notch motor and battery but it is defiently getting there and for us normal club racers the brushless/li-po combo puts us pretty darn close to these guys.

Mr. Black you are the man. If you really want yo see a great speck car or should I say a speck platform for some very fair and on a bugdet racing. You should get with Syndrome he really is there. The coolest part is you can run any car. seriuos bumper to bumper racing. I'll be honest I dont want to go to the sintered rotor till I have to. I feel I have an egde with the stock one its more exspensive but I think its faster but also faster to wear out. I'll just make it simple' pick your car and run that platform And I will add, The only reason I dont run One right now is that tight of racing is to much pressure and I mean that in a fun way. And your right. The journey is the the fun part.
