our track is about 13 secs track* semi technical and the back straight is about 25m. Asphalt with medium-high grip (dusty) Average temperature is 32-45 humidity is all year long 84-87%.

Thanks Dave. That helps me out.

What ballends are those on your red Cuda? They are Gray and look like they fit nicely.

Sounds like you need to be in the 7.0 range then, possibly 7.5ish


Dave- still no sign.....
only a few days remaining.....

Speaking of 19turn motors and Cuda's, on Monday I had another club night...
I skimmed my Demon 19T the day before but didn't change brushes even though they were purple. I was trying to save my new set of brushed for this sunday, bad decision The car wouldn't go when I went to practise and I thought my speedo had gone again, but after changing speedo, trying the motor on a 4 cell pack and it working fine, I was puzzled as to why the second speedo was doing the same. I checked all the joints, turned the speedo off and on and suddenly the motor was going Finally got to race the second qualifier where I coasted to FTD, the car was pretty good and I didn't make any big mistakes, the motor fealt a little slow though. The third qualifier and I was making a few small mistakes as the car got slower and slower until it was crawling along and stopping from sticky brushes a couple of times. Feels like driving a slow car is more difficult The brushes had obviously been my problem all night, sticking at the start of the night and getting well past it after 5 minutes. So I changed brushes for the final and the car was considerably faster than my FTD run. Shame I drove like an idiot after spinning out on the second corner thanks to not changing to softer tyres since the track had gone under total shadow Rolled it several times, got a few radio hits, kept crashing where there was a 6 year old marshal....
ended up breaking my aerial tube where it came out of the shell and had the car doing a slow run away when ever I touched the throttle, it really doesn't like the aerial laying flat on the car
My worst final in months after what, in the curcumstances, was my best qualifier in months
