If they did that with a 2 turn motor, Imagine what speed they'll get with a 0 turn motor ?!

Holy smokes. Is that only true if you go through every gear at 1:1? Is that true at all?

i think it's relative to where you run. in a smaller, more technical track, electrics will likely be faster coz of acceleration out of corners. for huge tracks with super long straights, nitro cars would probably have an advantage. an ep car may have the speed record but then again, that wasnt your run-of-the-mill ep car. i mean most of us here probably never even ran (and probably never will) more than 7-cells in our rides let alone 20+!!!

quite honestly though, both ep and gp cars nowadays put out so much power that even if you go with either class, theres plenty enough speed to satisfy any speed junkie's urge. slap on the most wicked outlaw engine in an 8th scale gas car or strap on 6 cells on a 12th scale ep car with a 6 turn motor and im sure most of us here will have their hands full trying to handle or max out the speed.

You guys do realise that anything less than about a 5 turn is pretty much just a dead short right??? I truly believe that if you are going all out no rules R/C Drag Racing that currently a nitro car would get the record. If you were to take the motor out of a 1/8th scale R/C Hydroplane and put it into a car you would go BALLISTIC. That being said though i believe that pretty soon Electric will advance enough to reclaim and probably hold the record.

But think about it, they clocked a 1/12th scale car at 111mph (give or take 1 or 2 mph) That's 1/12th the size of a real car! Doesn't that mean its going to be 1/12th the speed? Because don't radar guns clock it as a 1/1 scale?

Example. Let's say a 1/12th scale is doing 15mph. When a radar gun clocks it's speed, does it clock it like it would a 1/1 scale car? Or would it read it differently due to it's size.....? I'm not making any sense am I?

i believe it doesnt matter the size of the car because the radar gun measures the time it takes from the point its fired till the time it gets back to the gun, if its being pointed straight at it it should measure its actual speed not scale speed...i dont know if that made any sense or if im right but i think thats how it works.
