As I expected, it was the fastest car on the track, I believe it would have given a field of 19 turn cars a whipping as well.

Roland and Drew are both excited about this, I'm going to build one up for myself and see if we can't get this going as a separate class.

Roland's car is an old Darkside chassis, 2000mah 7.4 lipo down the middle, and a Castle 6800kv motor with a Quark 33A speedo. Drew's car is a Speedmerchant Rev4 (or 4.5, can't remember now) with the same motor and a Castle 25A speedo. I have an old CEFX chassis laying around that I might use, or I might build up a Speedmerchant version for myself.

Roland used a short piece of Carbon fiber tubing (1/8" OD) to adapt the pinions to the smaller motor shaft. Drew used a 48 pitch pinion that fit the smaller shaft directly. Both cars seemed to work very well.

I know my buddy Alex "Valls" has a spare Rev4.5 chassis in his box, I'm gonna start the brainwashing this week to see if I can't get him going with this too... Maybe we can have enough guys to run it as a "demo" class at the March 9 "Gauntlet" trophy race at 360 Speedway...
i might go to that race, if i can, to see those cars run, must be interesting, those motors must make it look like a 10th or 8th scale with a 540.
Press Alt+F4 for a good time.

The track is actually at homestead motorsports park. They have an nitro onriad track thats open on the weekends and a smaller yrack that opens on wed nights. Its under roof so it opens rain or shine.
