I posted this in the other thread, just thought i'd let a few people have a close up look of the Genx-10

Quote:

Now all i need, is a servo, brushless system, lipos, and tyres

Argh it's going to be a while till I get it going, damn lack of funds

anyone willing to sponsor my electronics, give me a yell

Looks like World GT/GT10 is part of the Northeast Grand Slam Series (I think there is a discussion on the Racing Forum about it)

Any further talks about how this class will be running? Motor siez/4 cell/lipo? I would hate to continue to invest in the wrong specs for my Gen X 10. Currenly have a Novak ss17.5 with lipo.

check out www.intchamps.com and they talk about how World GT works. I think they allow LiPo in that class

The question is, will local tracks go by this or is it way to early as this class is just getting started?

i think it is too early to know. i do know that 13.5T/4cell is too fast for beginners. i believe the local tracks will need to find a way to slow things down for beginners.

At the moment I have a 17.5 with lipo, have not run it yet as I am building the kit this week. Not sure if this will be to fast for me. Almost went with a 21.5 brushelss and lipo but thought I try 17.5 first.

I just received my CRC, and it'll be lipo/6.5 powered.

Here in france, most of the tracks are designed for 1/8th GP, so i need a lot more power than 10.5 with 4 cells.
The trouble is, I don't know if it would be driveable ???

This is definitely a delicate dance, finding the right power combo that is not only something that beginners can handle, but is something that keeps the interest of the regular hobbyists that might come over from other classes. I dont know the methodology that Scotty and Boomer used in picking the combo they did (4C NIMH/13.5)

Scotty and Boomer are extremely intelligent race promoters. I am sure that they have consulted with the best in the industry when it comes to setting rules and regulations. After all, SEP races are some of the best out there.

I for one, am disappointed that the trend seems to lean to 4 cell nimh. I just feel that this just makes it a glorified 1/12. I was hoping the class would go lipo/13.5 or 17.5 because all my future battery purchases will be lipo and I know others feel the same. Just my .02

I feel the same, but from what I have heard these things are crazy fast with 4 cell 13.5. I'm trying to get a group of guys to run these here in Dayton and I was thinking about 17.5 or 21.5 with lipo.
