I don't remember where I saw that, those are like 9-10T....and the worst thing is....3300mah, for mod, 8 minutes.....it is NOT the motor and the batteries, it is their FINGERS CONTROL.....crazy.

I know most place over EAST are 8 minutes....and I thought Europe are also 8 minutes too....and RAIN is optional....LOL

First, you need a very sencitive finger...
Then you need to dial the car, so it just never stop/ loose speed, in the turns. It require a very good nowledge about the car. And yes, they practice a lot. Itīs kind of "rental go-kart-style", with so poor power that you need to keep the speed up though the corners, as you caīt compensate for that by just pushing harder. Well, Masami and hara can...
Then, VERY good batteries. VERY good.
Everything just have to roll freely. Much more important here than everywhere else. This track is also up-and down, and very, very tight.
So the ones at the top, they are just very, very good, and have everything under control.

your usage of the word very is very intense.

Anders, you say that's a tight track? That looks huge and wide open compared to most of the tracks out here.

Last year they ran 9t and 10t motors with sanyo 3600's. I think most will run 8's with 37's cos anything too low will heat up too much over 8 mins.

Im thinking alot of people will be running the IB3800s with the longer run time that the cells have....and i also belive that they will run 8t-9t cuz then comparing to the year before, they can be "more throttle happy" then before.

Those are too easy....I just need 20-30 years, 12 hours per day, 4 hours in virtual RC of practice, and I should be able to reach the level like Atsushi and Masami...............when their batteries are dumping at 8:05...

Man, with the IB3800......may be they can push the motor limit to 7T.

Remember, 190mm TC are not what they do for living....1/12th scale are the principle of skill..........look at Masami, he was a world champ when he was like....13 (I dont' remember, just remember he was the youngest world champ in 12th scale history)

Still remember those Trinity Pro match SANYO 1200 SCR cost like $80 per pack?
