I don't have an ESC with dynamic timing (yet!), but I've been running 4.93 FDR. Track is a smaller carpet, fast.

Running 69/35 for gears.

Default I don't know about the aerodynamics.....

However, if curb appeal where part of the equation, you'd be a stunna'..
when and where?

haha yeah... it scares me to drop $20 on a body to use it one qualifier and it doesn't work, but I'm a Honda guy since birth so I'll only use a Honda/Acura body for RCGT... and it looks like it'll only be the NSX. The S2K doesn't look like it's too bad though

Sorry your question wasn't answered earlier, I would suggest something around a 4.2-4.5 if your carpet track is decently small. I ran a 3.9 at a carpet track that was maybe 75x45 with a regular Novak 17.5/GTB and it wasn't too hot but got the right amount of punch in the infield. Just keep an eye on temps and stay smooth/progressive with the throttle. Any ideas on the dimensions of your track? Good luck and have fun!

Fast guys in my area running the newer speed controls (Tekin RS Pro with Vegas firmware) that have boost etc. are running 5.5 or higher FDR.

The guys with non-boost ESCs were 4.6ish.

hey everyone, just thought id see if there was any interest in hinge pin holders that would pull the arms in 2.5mm each side to bring the car to a legal width for roar or other bigger races that tech car width. i should have the plastic prototypes done this weekend and if they work well will send them off to my machinist to have them cut out of aluminum. have no clue what the price will be but im sure it would be along the lines of most aluminum option parts.

just thought id ask.

Yeah I'm not a baller nor do I consider R/C my life enough to buy an expensive ESC, shoot I barely have enough for this hobby even being sponsored by Ofna

4.2 or bust on a GTB/Havoc we need the most we can get against the big baller$
