It was very nice.
Traction was Med-high easy to drive and no T-rolls. Tires... hm.. yes mine gone after 3 rounds.

Dont know what vid you looking at, my cars (stock and F1) both pushed a bit but the feeling was like a high traction asphalt. So better than the ETS befor because there the traktion was super high and everybody was T-rollin!

By the way... you cant compare that with Snowbirds or IIC... there you have a lot more traction and not this ride tires....but for everybody it was a lot uf fun!!!

Is the ETS Pro-stock motor fixed timing?

No wonder the class is so popular. Biggest issue with Blinky locally is timing confusion (no two motors are marked the same) and rumours of "big rotors".

In the US in blinky classes, you can still do what you want with the endbell.

Same here, but different motors can do different things and the marks are never equivalent. I get asked how much timing to run on the motor all the time and I can't answer because the only motor I know is my own. Doesn't help new racers get up to speed.

I know. It's the same in Belgium. The ETS has special motors with fixed endbell timing that you can adjust. You can hire a motor for 5euro's per race weekend or buy one at the ETS if you want to take it. Same goes voor the ESC.

For 2014, the Belgian championship will use the same speedos and motors from the ETS for their nationals (but 10.5T motors instead of 13.5T motors). Last year everyone with money was testing different ESC's and motors to see if they could be faster with it.
