ROUGH - Punta ka ng tracks ng maaga this Sat. Medyo marami kasi ang mga papalitan mong piyesa duon sa LCG ko eh. . . . Di ba pumayag ka na ikaw ang magre-rebuild nuong buong kotse???

Storage suggestions for the IB 3800:

(1). For short term storage (less than a week)

After racing, discharge the packs to .9 volts per cell (5.4 volts for a 6 cell pack) and put them away. For the next use and just before charging, we recommend the use of an equalization tray (diode built in) for these cells. Leave the cells on the tray only long enough for the led's to go out. You should charge the cells up immediately after equalization.

if you charge the packs more than once a day, we recommend not to discharge between races. you can charge them after letting them cool for a reasonable amount of time

(2). For longer periods of inactivity some charge must be left in these cells. Expect a temporary decrease in performance after long periods of inactivity. After the packs are run a few times performance should be restored

jason: so for longer period of storage, would you suggest that we charge 500 seconds on the pack?

ROBO: are you still getting the BANZAI of MOTO? BROOD nalang ulit

Yes. if you're not going to play within 7 days from discharging the pack. the 500secs is good for around 2 to 3 weeks of inactivity.

Sir Jason: At what charging rate is the 500secs?


LEM/ROBO/etc : Baka mabuhay ang 1/12th scale pagbukas ng onroad ni JP?

rbboy: di na. the brood i have is fine. as for getting a new brood, i'll stick with this one nalang. it should last me for the rest of the series. but if the need arises, i will definitely get another one.

pitshop: not that it matters but i was using a Ride Stratus MK3. .... la lang. hehehe

FAQ : (From Jeff Roe, owner of Promatch Racing )

How does internal resistance and average voltage affect track performance?

The best way I know how to explain what these two factors affect on the track is this.

Lower internal resistance = faster acceleration
Higher average voltage = higher top speed

Obviously a pack with lower resistance and higher average voltage would be the best. But if you race say 4wd off-road on tight tracks with short straights you would see less benefit from the higher average voltage and a much greater benefit of having lower internal resistance. Conversely if you raced on a large oval track with sweeping turns where the car was always at or near top speed and did not lose much speed in the corners then the higher average voltage would be of much greater benefit and the lower internal resistance would play a much smaller role in performance.




on this note... there have been some discussions on the other threads that IB's and GP's are to be geared differently, i personally haven't tried doing this, but it does make sense, so those using the newest batch of IB's MIGHT try gearing down to reduce motor temp, and better their accelaration, thereby increasing motor performance. Those using the newest GP3700's might benefit from better "torque" so they might try gearing up.

in my opinion its a personal choice, GP's since the start of the 3300's have always had lower peak voltages as compared with the competition, while IB's have been gearing towards higher voltages... Both cells are equally poised to win, and in my opinion, cannot directly be compared with one another as they are designed differently.

just a case in point in the recently concluded ICC, the number of participants using IB's and GP's were almost 50/50 give or take a couple of racers.

its official. finally we will have an indoor on-road track! definitely somthing to look forward to! we will once and for all be "weather proof" hehehe .... ... if the surface is smooth enough, we will probably get to run 12th scale again! yipee!!! of course thats assuming there will be provisions to do multiple layouts (similar to capitol speedway) to adapt to the different scales/race classes of on-road racing. but regardless, it's definitiely somthing to look forward to!

JPRacing: good luck sir! we will eagerly await you new track. as mentioned above, hope you'll have options to do scaled down layouts for 10th scale ep racing (maybe even 12th scale) as really huge tracks do stress out out ep motors (like in montalban). good luck with your new plans!

MOTO: malay mo, may pag-gagamitan pa mga 12th scale stuff mo. hehehe by the way, mukhang matinidi "set up" ng avatar mo a! looks like that "front end" is set up with really low roll center .... lakas ng "body roll" eh! hahahaha

robo/moto: really wanna try out the 12 scale looks easy to tune... does set-up count as much as 1/10 or kaya pa dalhin ng LOLA body?

ROBO> Natawa aku dun ah anyway I know that JP does do things for the heck of it, so hopefully pavement would be good enough for 1/12. Lets keep our fingers crossed. (sana may importanteng tao makabasa nito)

Rbboy> Not as crucial as 1/10 but also a big help pag na set-up mo ng maayos. Suspension lang naman ang malaking bagay sa 12 scale.
