10,5 lipo is mod. this is so fast that it was to fast for me.
I use a Tekin and it's fast.
I think that the plans for the stock class we had will be changed. This goes to fast for a beginner.that the Japanese champion is driving between them is not normal. The new speedo's let the motor run like a class higher.
Today won a 13,5 driver with a Tekin speedo between 10,5 drivers and last final even a lap ahead.
He told me that the infield was the same and even a bit faster and the top speed was higher.

no video.

Thanks Rick for the info.
One of the other reason why Super Stock (Cause normal stock is 17.5 turns, used to be the 27turns brushed motors) and Modifed are closing in so much, is because in Modified most drivers decide not to use the fastest available motor. For example most of the A-Main drivers of modified were driving a 5 or 5.5 turns motor. With the fastest motor being the 4.5 turns. In stead of the 3.5 we were used to from last year.

thanks for the post rick. too bad losi doen't have these kind of pilots for THEIR car or else the JRXS Pro and type R would be on or close to the podium as well. off-road converts are no match for dedicated on-road wheelers IMO. specially when it comes to those little tweaks they do to further develop faster and more user-friendly chassiss'. (Added note: Mind you i'm not taking anything from the likes of Masami, Joel Johnson, and Hara. These guys have world championships on-road AND off!!!)

With manufacturers making a lot of different cars for a lot of different classes. I think the drivers have become more hybrid when it comes to the classes they are racing. For example Jilles used to be a electric driver for both 1/12th and 1/10th scale. But he is a nitro world championship top qualifier, and nowadays very busy with the Shepard too, so he's more than electric on-road driver.

Same goes for people like Freddy Südhoff, Marc Rheinard and Hupo Hönigl. And of course a whole lot more.

The 3.5 that was used last year is still about the same speed as the 4.5 and 5.0 this year. Last year was run on 5 cells, and this year is being run with Lipo. That's a 2.4 volt jump. In theory the cars should be faster then last year.

Default Super Stock Round 3 report

With both Alexander Stocker and Tommy Bergfeldt winning a round, the 3rd A-main was the decisive one. Before the start of the 3rd final it was Alexander who was in the best spot. Due to his very fast time in the first final, Tommy had to overtake Alexander and win the 3rd final to win the 2010 DHI title.

Due to Tommy pushing to the limit he hit Alexander quite early in the race, than it was Tommy who fell back big time to last spot and Alexander falling back to 4.

Henry than took the lead with Yukijiro pushing right behind him, it was than that Henry clipped a kerb and rolled it giving the lead away to the Japanse Yokomo driver.

Meanwhile Tommy was working on a astonishing comeback moving up to 4 even in front of Stocki. Stocki than made a little mistake after which his car was behaving poorly. The German 2008 ETS champion fell back to last place due to that. After the race it turned out his left C-hub was broken.

Tommy was still working on his comeback but racetime was over to soon for the Swede. Yukijiro won the 3rd final with Henry finish 2nd and Tommy in 3rd. Stocki managed to finish his race in spite of the broken C-hub.

With both Tommy and Stocki with a win and a 2nd spot, the fastest final was the important factor. With Tommy winning his final with 19 laps in 5:12 and Stocki winning the first one with 19 laps in 5:07.

I know, but drivers choose not too, because it just to fast. Which means modified drivers are choosing not to go any faster anymore, while super stock keeps going faster and faster.

Stocki's times were that fast that when you'd rank him in modified with his super stock times, he'd be in the C-main. Where world champions Andy Moore and Naoto Matsukura were too. So it's very clearly that super stock he really leaping forward at the moment.

Modified round 3 report:

After the first few corner were clean it was Teemu Leino who hit Marc Rheinard which started a collission of a few drivers. Marc fell back to the rear of the grid, and so did Teemu as has had been given a stop-and-go penalty. Both Christer and Ronald managed to keep on racing without problems. Halfway through Christer had a 2 or 3 second gap to Ronald, when Christer's car seemed to be suffering a loss of rear end grip. After 3,5 minutes of racing Christers rear end slipped a bit causing him to hit the kerb coming onto the "Speed Passion-straight". He rolled it and landed on his roof. In spite of some quick action by the trackmarshall it was Ronald who took the lead. The German 2007 DHI cup winner drove to the victory with his Yokomo BD5.

Question.. As you were on location. How did the new LRP Stock Spec speed "look" like against the AE Black Diamond? Did the BD seem to have more punch? Please tell us your observations!

Thanks.
