Some facts about the Invitational,

As can be seen from the pic of top 3, body of choice was Excel or Ride Accord. I was using a Stratus 3.0 carpet version initially and switched to the Excel as it provided much more stability

Wheels and inserts are not controlled. JB foam was the obvious choice for most racers. Many Japanese racers used Tamiya dish wheel. They said tamiya wheel provide more traction compared to say Yokomo wheels. I found this out too late

Many racers initially tested higher turn motors when the traction was not good. Finally most of the racers settled with 6 or 7 turn motors as far as I know. The fastest car was hara's cyclone. He was just ballistic down the straight!

KO's staff was at the race to help programming the VFS escs and repairing any burnt ones.

Top racers all used GP battery. Intellect are more popular among the locals.

So hara was the fastet..?hmm...I think he was the only one running 6T motor , you need to be very smooth on the throttle even with 3700 cells to run such powerfull motors!

Do you have an idea of the FDR (ratio) they were using?

thx!

Yes, Hara's car seems to have the most acceleration out of the corners and incredible top speed. Surikarn's and Masami's car have comparable top speed by not the same amount of acceleration. Masami was also running 6 turn. Not sure about his exact gear ratio, but it was something around 9.5.

Positive, that was Masami's car. His car had problem right before the last corner and made him finish second in his race 1. Not sure whether that was esc or motor problem. Perhaps KO guys replaced his esc with standard one.

Fai, probably due to wheel size. I haven't measure the size myself but other told me that Tamiya wheels are slightly smaller than Yokomo ones.

Thanks for the comments Mars , Masami seems a little under-powered compared to Hara and Surikarn comming out of the last corner and onto the straight

Did Oscar have secret motor setup? I heard that there is a new Flat brush, any comments on this? I think its only for Factory Drivers at Big Races, maybe its a very short brush to help lowering resistance..?

cheers!
