you can get by with a higher torque lower top end motor like the evo4 ms at a smaller track like the one at the winternats but the 5 ports seperate themselves from the threes at a big tracks like ours.

I intend on experimenting with a potent .15 small block in my 835.

lighter and the same power, if not more.

And if the car doesn't make weight, I can add weight whereever I want it!

Over in Hong Kong, those 835 are all equipped with the Small block MEGA 15, and they said that engine is NUTS....however, running a much heavier car with those with 200mm car is a disadvantage..........but over here, 235mm is 235mm, unless they change the rules and allow 200mm with VDS body and 5 port 15 motor to run against the 235mm, otherwise, I do not think getting 15 big block engine is an issue anymore....there are quite some 15 small block engine around, but I did not know which one is actually 3 ports, I think all are 5 ports....

see, there is an advantage to 235mm, the 200mm cars can only have .12 engines..

A potent .15 small block will work nicely in a 235mm car!

However, for example, in this year MWS, they will first start accepting 200mm TC, with small block 15 engines, with outlaw pipe and outlaw VDS bodies...

If my 835 are equipped with the same spec with those out law 200mm..........I still think, a heavier 235mm will NOT be able to run against those 200mm outlaw......

Only advantage of the 235mm is pretty much the wider rear foam tires...but don't forget, 200mm can also equipped with 35mm rear foams as the outlaw spec.

Those 10thonroads haul @$$ down the straights compared to some of the sedans I saw at my track. Almost as fast as 8th scale onroad. For now I stick to my R40 and MT12. Just concentrating on learning the car even more so I can win against other faster engines. The MT12s are still fast at out track surprisingly to the other drivers who spend $180 more+ for their engines.

Thanks for the info....I am sure on ROAR's race, that is correct, but for example, we are running MWS, using part of the ROAR rules, but in 235mm class, they first combin the 200mm with ANYTHING and run against with the 235mm (due to the low turn out of 235mm).........

If 835 with SB15, running against 710 w/VDS body, outlaw pipe and Mega SB15 or Max Sb15 with any foam (ie, 35mm rear outlaw foams for 200mm)...........what is your opinion about whos will get the advantage....?

I do have a Serpent Impulse converted to VDS setup along with the OS 18TZ engine...........if I can figured out the 5 minutes FUEL problem (so far, I can only do 4 minutes +/-)..........there is no way my 835 can touch that little 200mm....I am sure if I use the Mega 15, it is still the same story.

But I think you are correct, whatever they want to do....they should limited 200mm outlaw can only equipped with no more then 2.1cc engine, that is 12 engine.....even though now a day high end modified 12 engines are no slower then any mod big block 15 engines....

Just my 2cents.

Rookie-Nitro sedans are becomming unbelievably fast nowadays. I haven't seen the 235mm class lately, but still I know those cars launch harder outta the corners and maintain traction better than nitro sedans, but overall top speed will be close. I'm sure you will be able to hang with them.
