Yes, the track is convertable to large oval easy so as a result a lot of the track is high speed meaning if you maintain speed you can gear it up. I have ran the track with a 10 tooth range and found that to be fastest. Anything higher then that and you lose speed. The track is screwy though. The fast (pro) guys have even moved back to brushed 19T vs the brushless b/c they are getting more power out of them. Brushless winds up faster but when you dont need to do that a lot then you are slower.

Wow, that's impressive. I think we maxed them out between 28.5 and 31 on carpet on-road without many long straights.

In a straight line, the 19T should be faster, so it makes sense on a track like that why guys would go with 19T.

I can't imagine what you'd gear your 13.5's at on a track like that. I get them up around 43 on a tight course.

I will admit, a 45mm rollout is extremely high. I mean my rollout ratio with the cyclone WCE is 29.15 with my gearing at about 6.25. This is on carpet with 58mm tires.

at my last meet we had stock guys running 40mm roll out and not thermalling.
when people thermal is it the motor or the esc getting to hot?

Having run both the GTB and Sphere, I found the LRP to have one advantage...size. Aside of that, it thermalled, crapped out and when it did work, was not as smooth as the GTB. And I run my cars HARD. Please give more info before posting your "facts".
There were 3 novaks and 3 LRPs. Two LRPs in TA05s and one in an RDX and two of the Novaks were in TA05s and one in a cyclone. All were using Novak 10.5, all using similar rollouts. All the TA05's were using similar setups. Im sorry my post offended you. Ive used both as well.
