All the Speedo technology has really blurred the line between classes. Stock is within a half second of Open Mod!!!

Fast Laptimes
17.5 Rubber = 11.8 - 11.9
13.5 Rubber = 11.4 - 11.5
Mod Rubber = 11.3 - 11.4

What turn BL motor you think would be needed to get back to 27T speeds? 25.5? 30.5?

yeah, i think the esc manufacturers got so tired of reading about how many guys should be moving up to mod, that they decided to sneak in these profile updates, which essentially, have all these spec guys (who claim they can't/won't do it) running mod now.

I'm interested to see what motors these guys are using in mod. ie.. are the Tekin guys running 8.5 and keeping up with the KO/LRP guys with 4.5 or 5.5.

Nosram is a red LRP. That's the only difference.

Wow that's close.
Those 17,5T and 13.5T go fast.

How many are there because as I see the list with all the speedo's, I see him only 2 times and the rest is Tekin and LRP.
Are there any mamba's competing?

Looks like 13.5 keeps up with modified.

Time for two classes, Mod and 21.5.

Ok so not that many.
And Mamba's? Are there any of them?
Or is it all Tekin LRP with a few Advanced speedo's?

If there are more guys in 13.5 like there is.....why not make the class with less entries merge with the class that has more entries? I fail to see the reason to bring the larger class into the smaller class for reasons other than making the smaller class larger. If more guys are acclimated with 13.5 speeds why not make the 4 mod guys join the 25 or so 13.5 guys? This battle seems easier to fight than the one you are raging on the internet.

Agreed two classes....13.5 and 21.5 leave the ESC's and everything else alone
