Finally got a chance to see the Krypton in action last night. A local racers got his hands on a couple of them and took them for a spin last night. His car was insane! gearing is tricky but once you get it down, its insane. he had to gear his 10x2 Kr down 2 teeth from what we normally would gear a Ti of the same wind. timing was at 15 deg (we normally run 20 on our other motors at our track) but this thing had a really good power band. seemed faster all around, great punch and top-end. of cors these were all based on mere observation of how the car looked with the Kr compared to the others running along side of it with Ti's, Core's, and Trinity's. this weekend we will see how it fairs at our club race. we can start monitoring actual lap times. keep you guys posted.

Well, actually I have to turn down the timing to 8 degree. However, it still does have a good powerband. But the punch is not there.

ROBORAT, what car are you using and what is the final drive ratio? I used the Krypton 8x2, with final drive ratio of 9.1

I just ran one this last weekend. It's has a very broad powerband. Our track is a fairly large outdoor track with tight and flowing corners. It seems more efficent as well. I was running a 10x2 at a 7.8 final drive ratio on my xxx-s (30/128).

Pembalap: I finaly have one of my own and I ran a 10x2 at a recent big race. we ran at a fairly big track with some technical sections and geared my Losi 90/21 for a final drive of 7.84. I had 18 deg of timing in it. mind you i was running against as A-Main field with guys running 9s and 8s (D5s, Core's, Ti's, etc) and i had more than enough rip and top end. needless to say i was able to run more efficiently and gave me the opportunity to run a stock profile setting on my GT7 speedo.

last saturday i ran at a small twisty carpet track with a short 90 ft straight. this time i geared significantly lower -> 90/18 or a final drive of 9.15 with 15 deg of timing. ... still a 10x2. coz the track was small a 10x2 naturally seemed to much but i dint have much of a choice, i dont have winds milder the 10. but, it was fast everywhere. i may try a tooth lower (17) on the pinon next time to see if i get better rip out of the tight corners. i think i can sacrifice a bit down that short straight anyway. it was still faster than my Ti and Orion Core of the same wind.

Pembalap - Try going down in timing (to 4 degrees)

The Krypton seems to lack punch (compared to the Ti's) but definitely has more top end.

My Final ratio on a Kr 10 x 1 is 7.20 using Stock Springs and 767 Brushes for a fairly large track.

I think the only difference is that the 767's are serrated.

The 766 & 767's are the laydown version of the Quasar Brush.

For all who are concerned, the 766 & the 767 are not the same compound brush. The 729 and the 766 brushes are both the Actron brush, just different configurations (stand-up vs lay-down). The 767 brush has a higher silver content and was developed for stock class racing. Thanks...

I'll try to lower the timing the next time I run the Krypton. My local track will be re-surface in the next couple of days. So I will not be able to try anything until Mid June, just in time for the Nats.

So the 767 would give more power compared to the 766, or does the 766 just have some diff lubricants in it?
