Default Best set up for exteme modified TC

Hi All

I am racing touring cars in the 10.5 class and love it but want to enter what we call in the UK Outlaw class ie anything goes.
M car will be another touring car (maybe the Schiumacher MI4 Pro when it comes out) but not sure what motor to g for.
I will be using the same lipos as 10.5 (2s 4900mah) and have a Magnum Pro ESC with no motor limit.
Whilst I want the car to be quick I don't want it uncontrollable. I as thinking 4.5 or 3.5?
ANyone have any suggestions??

Cheers

Hi, I'm racing modified with lipo and 5.5T motor. It's really fast and still controlable.

My config is:
Xray T2009, LRP Comp TC, ThunderPower 40C Lipo and LRP X11 5.5T motor (maybe X12 is better choice now)

Depends alot on the grip level and the size of the track. If it's high grip, with lots of straight-line, go with a low turn motor, if it's a really technical, or a track with not alot of grip, then go with 2 or 3 turns up from your fast track motor.
For a car, I would go with what ever you can get parts for easily.

Thanks guys.

I get what you are saying regarding the size/layout of track. The problem is I race at 2 tracks, one is large with long straight and the other is tight and more techinical although both are probably same length overall.
Maybe worth going for 5.5 to start with and if funds allow later on get a motor for each if I find that one suits one track over the other.
As far as car, currently run Xray T2pro which I love so may be tempted with another one of those or a 09 edition!!

A 5.5 would probably be ok if the tracks don't have great traction. If it's fairly high grip, I might go with a 4.5 or a 5.0, just so you arent as under-powered on the faster track.

Get a 4.5. It will be good on open tracks and you can turn you throttle epa down to around 90% for smaller tracks. If you have a decent speedy you can also adjust that to soften the motor. A 5.5 is a great motor to start with in any case and will extend the life of your drivetrain over the 4.5t.
