What tyres did you run at Heemstede.
My statement about the wires assembly is totally missed by some.
I am surprised that the 13.5t rules ROAR/EFRA/NOMAC are set-up with 2 differend thickness of wires

We had to run the LRP VTEX 30X.
No, your comment on the wires is not missed and I totally agree, but I'm not in the position to change the rules. I hope some people in the ERFA/NOMAC take some actions for the rules next year

Hobo, search this forum for all posts by me. I posted a setup for the x12 17.5 rubber TC. I'm still running it and it's very fast. Outdoors last weekend with 80deg F temps and 100+ish track temps motor came off 180-190 w/o fan and 160ish with fan. I've been running alot lately, and not to pat myself on the back, but I only make small changes to adjust for any given track and conditions. Overall, I can't really find a faster setup. With the temps, I can push the settings a little more and maybe drop a tooth or two to put the motor on kill, which renders temps in the 200-215 range which is fine for the x12 (according to Sean Cochran), but the benefit is a tenth or so, ok for a big race or the main, but lately I don't even bother. My motor runs so good, why risk killing it?

Thanks Joep.
On this tyres the time set by you and others are impressive.
About the motor wires, if nobody tackled the problem, nobody will take any action.
It is not a stupid rule for the time the rule is made, but with the advanced Speedo's from present day's it is not working in a proper way.
I've never come up with this issue untill I cooked my motor SP13.5 v.3.0
on a temp just above 32 degr.C and a brandnew one after four laps.

Reposting this for Hebiki

To save myself from sending so many PM's, yes I have successfully been running an LRP x12 17.5 in TC on asphalt and carpet rubber tires. Of course, like most you will only use part of it or you'll try to adapt it to your 5.6FDR and come back and say it doesn't work for you...LOL (j/k Dusttt)

LRP x12 17.5
FDR- 6.8 to 7.2 for asphalt, I stayed with 7.2 on carpet
motor- x-10 insert
tekin profile-4
drag brk-10
neutral width-14
boost-45
turbo-9
ramp 2 or 3- with slow turns / heavy low RPM loads 3 will fade
delay- .2 or .3- faster ur entering straight, earlier u can bring it in
start RPM- 5000
end RPM- 13000 - 15000 (alter this to help control heat. lower= faster boost increase / little more heat)

ALWAYS check ur temp at the 2 or 3 minute mark with x12 motors on first run or after any change. They aren't all the same and some get hotter much quicker. Some may like 1 or 2 teeth less, some may like up to 3 or 4 teeth more- u have to find that out on your own, but shoot for around 198F (or less) with no fan after 6 min. I practice/tune with turbo on 8 and ramp 2. Temps are 155-160 outdoors w/no fan. When I'm in that range I know I can turn the turbo up a bump and or increase ramp, run the fan and I'm golden.

Last quick tip- if you're having trouble with the turbo coming in while in the infield and giving you a "shot" that messes u up for the next turn, do like Obama and rob Peter to pay Paul by adding 3 or 4 to your boost and taking away 2 or 3 from your turbo. You can also move the delay up or down one tenth. I would much rather give up 1 car length on the back straight than give up 3 or 4 because I overshoot a certain infield turn every time.

I do both Nitro and Electric. I don't know if this is an answer or not to your question but from experience there are as you state, cry babies in EVERY sport. Nitro has its share of it own. Take for example if you will YOU that's right YOU. This is a total different class other than what you are currently running YET you find the time to complain. EVERYONE so far has ignored your lame comments YET you choose to be a cry baby and pursue the issue.

As long as there is life there will be cry babies get over it!
If Electric wants to run 50 classes sure why not!
F1, NASCAR etc. all change rules EVERY season why shouldn't we...
The reason why Nitro is dwindling is (imo) the lack of change (Eating chicken everyday syndrome). We attract no NEW blood with that attitude.

No ALL proposed rules and classes will be implemented but that's why we have discussion board like these, to post CONSTRUCTIVE criticisms oh in your terms crying.

In Short
KEEP IT REAL
KEEP IT FUN
KEEP IT CONSTRUCTIVE or
KEEP IT MOVING!!
