17.5 = stock
13.5 = super stock
anything else = mod

I think you should ask Mr Obama if he can squeeze another class in there (maybe "super mod")

Lets leave him out of R/C. He and his cabinet have already screwed up enough.

Yes.
But he has so much (of your) money.
I was disappointed with his policy speeches in that there was no mention of a bailout for the RC industry (especially rubber tire manufacturers)

Track length (& therefore top speed) before a hairpin, or tight S corner, is part of the key to this issue. Some tracks don't have these challenges and therefore do not require hard braking; in this case, the RS PRO + 10.5 (13.5) BL doesn't get stressed from a braking perspective.

Cheers
I run at SpeedWorld; in the current layout there is a short straight followed by a right hander taken at full throttle, then the ~ 160ft straight; this leads into a 90* right hand which requires very little slowing down (back off the throttle some but not that far), then another ~35ft before a 180* right hander that is fairly tight and definitely requires braking prior to. If you're familiar with it, the track is presently still in the Reedy '09 layout. There are a few corners where a 17.5 can get to 90% or better of top speed and then need to brake before the corner.

Billy (of SpeedWorld) has also driven my car and his only mention regarding the brakes was to turn them down a bit more...

Don't know if that helps. But either way, I have never experienced weak brakes regardless of speed.

HELP! I just download and install the HotWire v3.25 ... When I connect my RS Pro to my pc, it pop out a window saying "Some of the user values are outside of the expected range. Your ESC might not be compatible with this version of the Hotwire."

The curser on the timing boost is at zero, but the value shows "GO". What is going on? i set it to MAX, upload to the esc. close Hotwire and restart hotwire. The curser on the timeing boost will be at zero , but the value shows "GO".

please help! i'm running window xp.
