I can't see any benefits coming from it... With the power that the current ESC's are throwing into the motors, they aren't far off from mod anymore.

Goodies have all arrived so now I can start my build!! Still gonna have to wait for the LRP SXX SS until it hits the track though.

Anyone try the LTC-R body on the X yet?

I have done back to back testing between the Speed 6 and LTC-R on my WE. With a mod motor, the LTC-R was more aggressive entering the corners, and helped the car roll more. The Speed 6 was a bit less aggressive, and felt like the car drove flatter.

For mod, I'm going to use the LTC-R since I can use that extra steering to scrub speed on the entrance and then just power through the corner, for 13.5 it will be the Speed 6 to try to keep the speed up through the whole corner.

That's the LTC-R. I prefer the lightweight version of the body.

I believe the number is 1505-25. It is much less durable, but lighter weight so it handles much better in quick side-side transitions and lowers the CG on the car since there is less weight up high.

Hey Randy, do you get to run rubber/carpet much? What changes would you suggest from the base set up?

Thanks

Honestly I don't get to run much carpet at all. When I was able to, I really liked Jilles' LRP setup available at thard.co.uk if I remember correctly the only thing I did was add .5mm anti-dive.

In the past few weeks I have changed my setup a lot, and found a new setup "style" that's working really good on our local high-bite indoor asphalt track. I'm really wanting to try similar settings outdoors and on the rug to see how the results are there.
