Generally, but too little timing is slow everywhere.

Generally, but there are limits here too. Usually, more timing heats everything up more, since the rotor is always trying to catch the firing of the windings. At the same time, the wrong gear, too high or too low, will not be healthy for the motor.

Default 2011 USVTA SOUTHERN NATIONALS IN MUSIC CITY,USA

http://www.rctech.net/forum/racing-f...-city-usa.html

UPDATE......

Hey USVTA racers, Ive got a couple of updates to pass along

For guys running TC in this event, we are going with Solaris Med Tires/rims for the spec tire. Since Jacos are so hard to get....we have them at the track for $30 a set(4).

For VTA, we are teching tire tread...tread most be visible across the whole tire...my suggestion would be mount a new set now and run them two or 3 times and then save them for this event.

We are also giving away a Novak 25.5 Ballastic motor(NEW) and a Novak GTB2 Racing ESC low profile(NEW), as well as many many other gifts..

and last,....Dominos Pizza will be the food vendor sponsor...we are working out the details now....discounted or free pizza to all paid racers....

thanks to everybody that is supporting the event and get those entries mailed in...the list is growing

Whoa whoa whoa!!!

I don't believe the Havoc Pro SC is (or even should be) legal for VTA. It would seem to me that the Dynamic Timing Advance feature would render it a non-starter. The Havoc Pro (NOTE: NO "SC" DESIGNATION) is legal as it is just an updated GTB while the Havoc Pro SC is kind of a "dumbed down" Kinetic and if you look on the Novak product comparison chart it is listed with the Kinetics. http://www.teamnovak.com/products/es...spec_chart.htm

Hopefully Rob K can clarify, and I can understand the confusion (to a point) but understand that there is very definitely a difference between Havoc Pro and Havoc Pro SC.
