Hey guys...

I ran the 13.5 for the first time at our local indoor carpet track, BCRaceway.com . I ran the T2 "007 with RP30 rubber tires and geared it 30/114 and it thermal'd at 4:45 on the second to last lap....Its a tight 80x40 track. What would you guys recomend ?

Hard to tell...and hard to believe. I thermal (in purpose) with 5.12 FDR @ about 8:15 minutes and I was gunning the car from start to finish (again, in purpose)...
The past weekend NOVAK race....ppl in 13.5 were running about 4.6-5ish FDR.

Your option is SINTERED rotor for sure....your FDR (6.46) sounds too high (slow).

Good idea, I was talking to Bob(Novak) during the weekend about the original & sintered rotors, & found out from him that the sintered one can handle MUCH more heat(about 100 degrees or so, if memory serves), which is why we were gearing them to the moon(Bob even said he tried 3.9:1 FDR & it just kept on pulling hard). But the thermalling happens with the original because it can't take the heat so well, so the ESC's thermal sensor was set for the temp with the original rotor in it(to protect it), but with the sintered one, some guys are just pulling out the blue sensor wire(which I'm told is the one to the thermal sensor) so it won't do a thermal shutdown(but obviously, that's one of those things where you are still taking a risk, & I for one intend to keep mine plugged in).....
