I am definitely running the Spec class for sure and still on the fence for electric GT.

Let me ask, what kind of lap times/number of laps are the electric GT turning on the track in a qualifier on average? What kind of diff oils are some of you using in your electric GT cars (front/middle/rear)? If I bring mine, I want to be somewhere in the ballpark and tweak it from there.
I use 400K up front and 40K rear. If you run diff in the middle use 400K. I don't know what the others use. Well I was runnig the wrong car but did run some 12 laps and did 11/5.00 with front wheel drive only (damn locktite didn't work). So doing 13 as well is not out of the question. I bet in this race we can see more racers get into the 14 laps.

Thanks for the helpful/useful information jneg. Got one more question for you, "Will my 2050Kv motor be enough to keep up with the group?" I will get to work on my diffs and try to have the car ready in case I do decide to bring it.

As long as the rules are not published your question will have to wait for an answer.

If 6s will be allowed it should be ok. With 4s only you will be at the low side.

jneg,

These were the rules established for electric GT last year (from the Ipanema website):

GT Electric Open:

1. Chassis: Any 325mm to 360mm wheel base Shaft-Driven buggy/truggy off-road GT chassis and GT conversion is permitted.

2. Body: Any commercially available “GT” racecar style/type body, must look like a car that could actually be driven on the street with a passenger in real life or 1:1. Rear wing and/or spoiler/flap must be attached to the actual body. (No chassis mounted or “Buggy/Truggy” type wing mounts)

3. Tires: Only commercially available Rubber tires. Tires must fit under car’s body from over-head view. Adding “fender-flairs” on body to increase tire coverage is not allowed. (Foam tires are not permitted) Liquid traction additives orrubber enhancment chemicals are not permitted.

4. Batteries: Any type of commercially available Hard-Case units are permitted. Batteries must be removed from chassis to be charged or peaked in a "charging bags" for racer/track safety.


Just need some clarification on the battery rule as far as what are the limit(s) of what can be used.

jlock most here use those KV in their motors. Mine is a 2250KV. The rules for open electric will be almost the same and here are the rules:

GT Electric Open:

1. Chassis: Any 325mm to 360mm wheel base Shaft-Driven buggy/truggy off-road GT chassis and GT conversion is permitted.

2. Body: Any commercially available “GT” racecar style/type body, must look like a car that could actually be driven on the street with a passenger in real life or 1:1. Rear wing and/or spoiler/flap must be attached to the actual body. (No chassis mounted or “Buggy/Truggy” type wing mounts)

3. Tires: Only commercially available Rubber tires. Tires must fit under car’s body from over-head view. Adding “fender-flairs” on body to increase tire coverage is not allowed. (Foam tires are not permitted) Liquid traction additives or rubber enhancment chemicals are not permitted.

4. Batteries: Any type of commercially available Hard-Case 4S units are permitted. Batteries must be removed from chassis to be charged or peaked in a "charging bags" for racer/track safety.

Why the 4S limit? 6S is actually more effcient and should result in less stress on the speedo/motor.

jneg,

Thanks for the clarification/update of the electric GT rules. Just need to get another 4S pack and redo the diffs on my car and I will be good to go.
