How big is your track then that you can go full throttle almost all the way with a timed 17.5?
What 17.5 are you guys using?
Is it a 1:8 track?
Got any pic's?

PS
Our rules have max gearing, free timing on ESC and motor but NO dynamic timing in ESC allowed. All F1 1:10 electric chassis are allowed.

There are more reports on the lajf.se web page from our F1 serie...

the track i race is large it has a 60m front straight 40m rear and is 250m long on the race line it was a 1/8 onroad track in the days befor electric so a 13.5 is good but can be a bit to tame at times its a good track and lots of fun

Roy,
I am at work now but the track is an outdoor track used for 1:10 Nitro, now we are more and more switching to electric.. I do not know if it is very big or not.

Our 17.5T motors are from different makers I had a Team LAJE
I know there were LRP and other brands too.

ESC used are anything frpm Mamba max pro to hobbyking.

I know there are a few videos from our lajf racing F1 on youtube...
I will get more info this evening as I am the office now.... youtube is NOT allowed..

This is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0y00uwKLjoA our track.
We run TC 1:10 electric and nitro.
Plans for next year are to run F1 and Pro10 also.
With 10.5 and 2S lipo in Pro10 it will be a challenge.
F1 with 17.5 would be the same as it is a tech track.

as long as F1 stays electric, that ain't gonna happen at least won't happen without other electronics added to the mix - micro servos

for pretty much forever, RC was always 2wd - with 8th buggies being the only exception...4wd off-road and TC have kinda ruined racing in a sense - don't get me wrong, i love it, but doesn't require people to drive smart

12th, WGT, 2wd buggies don't have front brakes, and those all seem fine

with 40% brakes on the esc and abs off from the transmitter you have no problem with brakes. You need a smooth diff, hard diff grease (i use hudy super diff) and a good pair of tires though. we use ride and hpi high grip at the track. I was impressed by how much i had to increase steering in wet track! after a while everything was ok.

Holy crap
Now there is a track
What are the lap times on that kind of track?
This is a track that is begging for a Pro10

mod TC are best lap time is 15.6 sec clocking close to 115 km down the main straight stock TC is around 17 sec F1 when on fire any where from 22-24 seconds depending on grip levels but generally the track has a reasonable grip level

Nice
It is as i see it a smooth flowing track that will suit the 1:10 pancars perfectly.
Those guys do about the same speed in mod, sometimes even faster if the track is big enough
No wished he would live nearby
