For anyone who has ran the RM-01 at an event, what type of gearing worked with the Tamiya motor/battery rules?

Depends on the track/motor

A 78t 64p spur is a good start
On our 90x45 carpet, around 95-100mm roll

At the Tamiya USA track, which is basically wide open all day long for a 1s 17.5 blinky setup, I ran roll more in the 110-115 range, could have geared up more too

That is all with an LRP X-12 17.5 at 4dot timing

crickets
no banter... no discussions?

Is anyone else excited about the new F104 v2 coming late June?

How have the turn outs been for the new brushless class designations? i.e GT1, GT2, Mini pro?

We're still here, Craig. Just waiting' for you to get back from Austria. Some of the BL Minis are looking very good lately. As you would expect, Chuck and Danny Eggar have their cars going good as is Nino. The rest of us are just so so, but better. You'll have a little catching up to do.

What's the ETA on your return to the Mini wars????

On that note, I think the 17.5 and allowing us to "crank" in as much timing into the motor as it will stand, is too fast. At times, it's a little "scary" out there with some cars totally out of control.

Yes, it's fun to go fast, but I'd rather we toned down the speed to maybe the Black can level rather than at a full race Red Dot speed.

Please note, I am referring only to Minis. What's being done in the other classes is not what I'm commenting on.

For club racing after the TCS race, The Track @ Harbor Hobbies has gone to 21.5 for the mini class. I have not had a chance to run yet but I think that will be a much better formula for BL mini.

We tried allowing the option of 21.5 in the Mini class and they couldn't keep up with the brushed motors. If they were all 21.5 in the class, I think it would be a good speed for them though.

Sehr geehrter alle meine TCS freunde,
Aahh, yous guys ARE still out there...thought my 'puter quite working working over here. Try and keep up Grandpa. You and Kevin take good notes...I won't be back for 2 more months and will need lots of help catching up again!

Regarding this brushless stuff, last year I tried about everything. 21.5 too slow. 17.5 close. 13.5 too brutal. 15.5, an oddball "sport" motor only made by Orion (I think) was pretty darn nice. BUT, all these were fixed-timing motors. Now that they have come out with advance-timing motors, and the fact that we can't change Mini gearing, changes everything. This is supposed to be an experimental class, so we'll just have to put it back on poor Fred's shoulders!

Mit freundlichen Grussen,
Herr Bozo

Just a suggestion. Mini was fixed timing with silver cans. Why change that with the switch to BL? A fixed timing brushless motor rated at 2200kv matches the top RPM allowed under silver can rules (18500/8.4) and gives you loads more torque to boot.

Keep it simple. It's mini.
