Way too much power. I've seen a touring car with a 4.5 turn literally power-slide the entire back straight of a 90' carpet track, and on outdoor tracks they are faster in a straight line than 1/8 scale. The 3.5 turn motors are sometimes used in 1/12 scale where they run a 1s pack, but the 2.5 turn motors arent even much use in drag racing, maybe if you had something heavy.

The equation is simple-- but depends upon the motor manufacturer/version as some are faster than others--
​​​​​Mod TC indoors: 5.0 or 5.5
Mod TC outdoors: 4.5 or 5.0

It's all about ESC setup, Car setup and mostly throttle finger control.
