Default Silly newbie question.....how fast....

I'm curious how fast 1/10ths will run in different classes. How fast will a 27T stock go? How 'bout a 27T mod or a 19T? How 'bout the brushless class?

Default I said it was a newbie question.

Idle curiosity. Since brushless is becoming so inexpensive and Li/Ion batteries and chargers so available people are building insanely fast cars....little 1/24th's that do 50mph. Speed is cheap...driving skill...well, that is another matter.

Too many variables to answer in one sentence. Depends on a lot of factors including gearing, motor, batteries, tires, body, drive train efficiency, etc.

Default As set up for the average race.....

I know there are lots of variables...and you might even use different gearing for different tracks...however I'm not looking for an exact number like 17.67mph. More like a range when set up to run typical tracks. For example I can easily tell you what stock Mini-Z's top out at 12-15mph. Stock RS4's with 6 cells run around 15-19mph.

how fast does it go??
geeez I hate that question.
Every time I run my car in the local parking lot, people see it and that is the first thing they say...
All I tell them anymore is that your guess is as good as mine...
