In touring cars I have found the 13.5 to be a little faster every where on the track (straights and infield). We have some of the best stock racers in the country (Mo Denton, Eli Ezrow) racing at our track and I was a little faster with the 13.5. In brushed I am usually chasing these same guys.

I have yet to test the 10.5 against 19 turn, but plan to do so in the next couple of weeks. From the sounds of it I think the I will find the same results as the 13.5/27t.

On rubber tires I was able to pretty much match lap times between 27t and a 17.5, but when I ran the 13.5 I was a LOT faster. Once you figure out the gearing on the BL motors they are rockets.

I was running an LRP Sphere with a Novak 13.5 SS.

Just my experience.

Id second that phrase.yesterday at the track in my second qualifier we have a section where there is tabletop double double . like my third lap i over shot the first double and just punch it and the car did a back flip over the second double landed on its wheels and i kept going. thats some torque and no bullshit i must of got some good traction when i punched it!

My experience has been the same. Just this last Friday we were running 19t/10.5 foam and by time the main came around, the corner marshals thought I put a BL-mod in. The car was an absolute monster down the straights and a leap frog in the infield. My rollout was 36mm and motor temp was only 140-degrees!! This was with a Core 5000 lipo too

I haven't seen any 10.5's in 12th scale at Josh's.

Just a little more on perfromance. I believe the 13.5 is faster than a
27t.....when you get the roll out and driving style figured out. I am not sure about the performance of the lipo and brushless together compared to brushless and NiMh. I just don't know yet, but it looks like the NiMh has a slight advantage when used with the brushless motor. Do you guys suppose it might be the lower amp draw of the brushless motor?

Not in the 13.5, but I might be able to try it later today. If I do I will post the results.

I did run it in the 10.5 but that was all I ever had I so didn't do an actual test.

I have been racing in a series at a few local tracks with 10.5 or 19t in 1/12. The 10.5 definitely has more torque/rip out of the corner, and looks faster down the straight, but lap times are close. The last race i attended had 3 or 4 guys doing virtually identical hot laps with either motor. I can only figure that 19t is more drivable, especially since some of the tracks don't get a ton of bite.

13.5 on the other hand is reliably .2 or .3 sec. a lap faster.

Hi guys,

I know this is a debatable question, but given all the talk over whats faster, has anyone run a 15.5 against a 27t?

My local club looks like it's going to allow brushless soon, and I'd like to be able to suggest a motor limit that we can use for B/L motors... It would seem that the general consensous is that 13.5's are faster (by how much is the debatable question)... so I'm wondering if suggesting a 15.5 to be the option.
Splitting classes isn't an option, and not everyone will switch (I know I will, then again, I'm one of the ones pushing for it ), so would like to keep it as fair as possible. Otherwise I could easily find myself in the situation whereby I'm accused of bing faster purely because of the B/L motors....

regards
Ed

dont know about a 15.5, but the 17.5 is very close to a tuned stock. The way you go about getting the simlar lap times (gearing, driving style) is another topic. Thats my take. The 13.5 is closer to a 19turn than a stock imo

I ended up ordering a Novak GTB and 13.5 SS . I was really interested in the XBR Sport/EX 13.5 Brushless System, but I didn't have enough info on them to give it a try. I couldn't take the chance of wasting the money and then have to upgrade anyway.

Thanks for all of your help I really appreciate it. I can't wait to get it in my TC.

I was looking on getting a new 13.5 for this up coming season, and was wondering what motor every one likes the best. I have been running a Novak with LRP TC spec controler. I guess my question is which motor is faster than the Novak?
