whoa! that's a lot of motor for a "beginner"! even the "on road veterans" are only running a 6T or a 5T motor for mod...

You should be fine with 35c packs provided they're in good condition. You should have enough capacity anyway at 5000mah. And since you plan to run a low wind mod, 35c should be better actually as the higher C rating packs will diliver more power and punch making it a challenge to drive consistently. Come on over the the track and the on road guys will surely help you out.

wow ang kumplicado po pla ng mga battery sa lipo ... i dont intend to race i just want a free run with my kit and to maximize the power.. pacncya na po wala kasi akong mapag tanungan dito samin, since we are all using nitro's..

to sir cocojam are you recommending me to use a 60c batt? awww im confused po, would that mean, it can give a better power to my over all package and little time to play?....waaaaaaaaaa, on a race track like Melzo i can see the electric guys hitting the straight lines to 110-120kph not even lamberto picco can match on his 1/8 nitro.. so in this example 60c for a power punch or still depends on the Mah of the battery?

anyway salamat po sa mga sagot.. im really just new to world of electric, brush-less, etc....

hi guys, i have a quick question for the vets here... which is better for tuning option? (assuming you can achieve similar speeds)

lower FDR or higher boost? I appreciate opinions

im thinking of lowering fdr to achieve a smoother feeling car on the beginning of the sweeper. but tuning down the boost and turbo setting to monitor temps.
i'm at 6.9fdr with 30 and 12 boost just to keep up. (i go until 202degress if i run down my battery - the motor takes it like a champ!)

I have a hbbywing 2.1 120amps and an x12 combo... (please dont say buy another motor or esc) hehehe hindi ko pa kaya spending power nila godfather at stepfather... peace step and wes!

adjust turbo timing for the backstraight

When it comes to FDR versus boost this I think there isn't a clear cut way of determining which is better at the moment.
A simple way is to check your lap times. The stopwatch is the best gauge. Sometimes the feel of the smooth control a lower FDR value will provide is actually slower on the clock. The opposite can also be true where you go with the high FDR value with high boost setting, this setting feels fast but your lines suffer a bit since the car becomes less smooth during acceleration and good racing lines are more difficult to achieve.

FDR will also affect the drag break setting you are running so you will need to adjust accordingly.

Your driving style and track conditions will also favor one or the other as well.

Experiment and you will find something that is best for you.

!!!CLUB RACE ANNOUNCEMENT!!!

Given a good number of our on-roaders will be participating in the out-of-town leg (in Baguio City) of the TAC qualifiers, and the rechargeable transponders will also not be available, we will make our Feb. 4 (Saturday) club race into a practice session instead.

We can still run mock heats and open timed runs using the AMB system at the track but this will require the use of Personal Transponders (PT). Others may of course still join in even without PTs. Regular track fees will apply instead of club race rates.

The Feb 11 Club Race will proceed as scheduled with regular club race format.

See you guys at the track!!!

Sorry for the last minute change but, for this Saturday there will not be any Club Race or Timed Practice Sessions as the entire AMB system will be unavailable. Apologies for this. To simplify things, we'll just stick to having our next Club Race on Feb 11th instead.

Track will of course be open for regular practice.
