Close, lol
Purple up front with 37.5
Blue out back with 32.5

BUT, its all preference.
30wt out back and the car was too planted
35wt and it want to swing the back out.
I settled on 32.5.....Happy Medium for my taste.
Also battery position is great way to balance front and rear grip levels.

Hey, I'll be at the track for the last dirt race. I'll have a SC5M, nice truck, it will be for sale, as roller or rtr, find me if you want a decent truck for cheap.
One category is more than enough for me, that's what I realized.

See you all there tomorrow!

Not a big fan of carpet but i still had a great time! Don and everyone at IRH did a awsome job the place looks great! Didnt get thr chance to ask this question yesterday but 13.5 sct class is this going to be a blinky 13.5 class or a bosted 13.5 class? I know it was a mixed class yesterday just want to know how im setting up my truck for.

I really dont know why ANY 13.5 is NOT blinky. When you run a stock Motor (21.5, 17.5, 13.5) the race is all about motor. BLINKY. Blink BLink BLink. The boost and turbo functions will make a 13.5 an 8.5. Seriously. The amount of comments and questions about this I get doing tech inspection is unreal. I am pushing Blinky in all Stock classes. That's the way it should be. I keep getting overruled cause its just "easier". STOCK is STOCK. Program Your ESC's to blink.

Stock is Often looked at as next level up from sportsman. IT's not at all.

Charging and discharging at 40 amps, hand picking $150 stock motors and spending what ever it takes to lighten your car make a 17.5 just like an 8.5 so what is the difference?

Also stock is supposed to be the next step up from sportsman, not what it has become.

Im all for blinky but that wasnt the case on saturday. I just want to know what the class is going to be so i can buy the right stuff. I know if it goes mod me and 3 others have to buy speedos and motors. 13.5 was plenty fast and only a 1/2 sec off what the mod sct was doing
