I've had that happen to my 4.5 . I've heard that reving the motors unloaded can cause this.

Can LRP confirm when? or if not Why the speedies used at the worlds with the double fet board will be released? The team driver i saw his car was an absolute missile, with the new speedie and a 5 star motor.

Marcos, on the point of maintenance I can tell you that my motor blew up before it was driven 20 times. And it happened in the car, on the straight not when reving unloaded.

I have a hard time giving proper gearing recommendations for large outdoor tracks with the new system. We have not been able to do much outdoor testing ourselves recently due to winter in Germany. Most of our testing has taken place indoor over the last few months.

Anyway, there's no limitations to the gearing whatsoever. Try to explain...
If it feels better with one ratio then the other, or if you get better laptimes with one ratio then the other, then there's no reason not to do it!

Temperature wise you'll be fine with anything below 100°C (speedo & motor). If you'd be in the 90's already, you're certainly be at the limit.

Hope that helps and have fun testing further. Oh, and say hello to Anthony!
This is what Reto said earlier, and we are at 85-90 degrees Celsius and still they explode. Since Väst-8 is a very big track as you can see in the picture I posted earlier we gear the motors at 8.21 . I'm on my third motor now so I'm not very happy. But at our track it's the fastest, you dump with brushed motors (if you want to go fast) and Novak shuts down or doesn't last 5 minutes. It'll be an expensive Swedish Championship

Gear ratio 8.21... It seems over gear for 4 star motor, if run for big track I suggest dont gear below 9.8

Hey, don't you think we've tried? If geared at 9,8 I can tell you that it would become much much hotter since it would be at max rpm all the time.
8,2 or 8,4 is the gear ratios that work. Reto has said himself that any gear ratio is okay as long as the motor is not over 100 degrees Celsius.

Here's the track again

For a 4 star in a sedan, isnt the reccomended gearing in the mid 10's?

IB4200, and ofcourse we race no longer than 5 minutes. At the most 5,17 since one lap takes 16-17 seconds.

@rcdougie, read my quote of Retos post and you'll see that there is no recommended gearing, only recommended temperature which we are within.
