Thanks for the post guys

Jim-You can tell that you are getting hooked up well when that motor temp and speed control temp start geting up there.

John, do you still recommend the X12 3.5? I would like a little more speed down the straight as the mod TC's are just as fast as me and would like to leave them behind. I have been using an X12 4.5 and can hit full throttle easily in high grip conditions in many parts of the track.

Have you used the Novak Ballistic or any of the GM motors? I was thinking of possibly a delta 6t wind?

Regards

Yes I do. I have good luck with the X12 3.5 in the wide pan I gear it 13/93 and easily whip past the tc at the end of the straight. You may need lower gears on a shorter track. Alternatively gear that 4.5 up until you are running it at 180 F or so. Same for the 3.5

The guys running mod in the RC Le-mans Pro10 race series use GM 6 and 7 turn delta motors.

So can the 6t delta be run on 2s lipo and are the run times reduced with the delta wind? I have heard that the 6t is the same as a 3t regular motor.

The 6 turn delta is off course consuming a lot of current. Typical run times I have seen are just over 5 minutes on wide open tracks with 2S, 5200mAh and Lola bodies.

mathijs,

The races i have seen so far, some could not make 5 minutes when pushed too hard?
Even last weeks race some limped across the finish line. Or were they using even lower delta's, or the batteries were not good anymore? Just curious.

Just purchased a GM Pro 3.5. Thought I'd try a different brand as I've always used LRP. Anyone used one before?

So the deta's consume more power but are smoother and I would imagine run cooler in general?

John, my 4.5 with the front tyres treated was up to around 98c (208f) in the heat last weekend. My gearing is 87/14. I run my SPX8 on the softest setting. I'm using 50c lipo's.

So when are you going to enter a race meeting?
I'm beating everyone with a PF Corvette bodied McKune chassis with a 1s 10.5 200mm set up

Planning for the end of July NiMo. On holiday next week till end of month. Car is handling well and has been worth spending a month or two setting it up, you will definately see an improvment. Are you still using the Graupner motor?

NiMo, I'm sorry to hear about Dave. His death must be a real shock to the club and no doubt he will be missed by many people.

Frnot droop is adjusted by screwing the king-pin in or out. Screw it in the reduce droop, out to increase.
The rear is adjusted by adjusting the centre shock. The spring tension and shaft length affect the ride height and droop together. Screw your ball cup on the shaft in our out to adjsut rear droop, changing the spring will also affect droop, as well as the agle the shock is on.
I learnt real fast with pan cars (just got into them from touring), that everything has to be very free and smooth for the adjsutments to work and be noticed

The guys in mod do need to race in fuel-saving mode to make it.
6 delta + 7.4V, 5500mAh + Lola + wide open track = a lot of current draw

I am looking for a setup for low traction asphalt for the standard genx 10. It is for a fellow racer who is just starting out. Tire choice, extra placement of weight and where, oil, springs etc. etc if some could post it to help a pro10 driver out, that would be very appreciated.
