14 sec on a large GP high speed track is equivalent to approx 1 second per lap. Switching from stock to mod may achieve a 1 second gain, depending on the layout. Does that mean with the SPX, a stock motor perform as fast as a mod?

To Skiddins and Pavel ;

Would you please provide us the exact gear ratio you are using with a 10.5T and SPX on your TC.

Which motor do you use Skiddins ?

thanks guys,

Raphael

profiles 5 and 6 are also for Stock, they are just a litttle less RPMish.......

with 9.5 I feel that profile 6 yields more consistent run through the whole heat (6 minute), anyway in the end I came out with the conclusion that is better to go with profile 7, runs like a rockets and looso some performance during the last couple of minutes.......

I don't remember gearing of LRP motor - I've used it only for one race with SPX!? then I got my Trinity Duo and I'm running it. Final drive ratio is 7.52 on my T2009 (19t pinion on 84 spur) on indoor carpet track, quite technical profile used on SPX is 8.

Yeah that's truth - somehow I thought it was for one lap
It was too late for me and really had to go to sleep.

To stock motor perform as fast as a mod - almost. Also depends if it's 6 cell or 5 cell mod.

Nope, first outdoor race is held here on 16th may. Prolly I'll be testing on our outdoor track sooner - we are rebuilding it and will be modular so I'm really looking forward to test it.

See post #43 for someone elses explanation.

Current car was more stable than my old one, but my speed on straights was monstrous compared with how it used to be.
I had never had anyone ask how my car was so fast before last Sunday!

I used a Hacker 10.5 geared at 4.98 (need to try 5.16 though) with profile 7.

I qualified 7th, the guy who qualified 2nd (8 secs ahead, was running profile 8 geared at 5.19, can't remember what motor he used, probably a Nsram 10.5, possible a Novak 10.5SS.

I heard that on races that I weren't attending one driver I know (and which asked few weeks ago which esc to buy - SPX Stock Spec of course) were asked what is he running (he was almost as fast as guys with 4.5T and 5cell). He had bought my used LRP X11 Stock Spec as well and he says it's rocket (others doesn't belive it's 10.5T standart motor without tuning). I'm not sure if it's motor - I wasn't on race with him since he got new esc - or esc itself.

Btw can you compare LRP Stock Spec motor (or Nosram) with Hacker?
