Perhaps not in lap times but how about maintenance?
The shorter the track is the less difference it makes.
I know on our track it makes a difference of 2 to 3 tenth per lap if you got clean and/or new perfect bearings.
We have a track with laptimes between 23 seconds for the slower drivers to low 21 to high 20 for the faster drivers.
This is in the stock 13.5 class.

Ceramic for me has slight advantage on the straight due less drag but running 17.5 with boost does not make any difference.

My bearings are starting to sound like they have gone square. Has anybody purchased the ceramic set from ABEC35.com?

Cleaning on their benches and later standing on the podiums... good bearings carry speed in corners, no blips, good acceleration etc etc.. With several magics and perhaps not all the time, most bearings Ive had are quite good if cared for. Kfactory Reds are nice

Had a indoor race last weekend and managed to do laptimes that where only 2 a 3 km slower then the mod guys out there.
There wern't enough 13.5 stock racers so we ended up in the mod.
Managed to finish 5th overall and was the first stock driver out there
Running a lap time of 15.145 as fastest and that was a big improvement over last year on that track.
Funny thing is that i didn't use the best ESC and motor i had.
Used the old LRP SPX SS and a GM13.5 with a FDR of 4.588 so i had some speed out there.
Overall i am happy with the performance of the car last race.

regards Roy

Team magic E4 chassis have the best layout, balance overall, very easy to drive and it's not prone to tweeks but i do like to see a new chassis design with even cut outs and new top deck for low grip asphalt, new front and rear bulkheads were you can adjust the belt tension without using a belt tensioner.

What is lucking on the car is the rip of the two belt driven car however if you can free it up more it's achievable.
