Don't get me wrong its not that much faster but the last tcs race I think I quailified 6 seconds faster than the silver can class.
I agree 100%. We've been running a custom wound 2200kv system here (WCICS) for a year now and it's perfection. It works out to just shy of 18,500rpms on a full battery, so it's very similar to an average, old school silver can, but with loads of torque. Best of all, we're dead even on the back straight.

What I'm wondering about specifically, is where most have ended up tuning wise and if there has been any decision on the part of Tamiya to place controls on timing, rotors, etc. Our goal was to bring speeds back to something manageable, eliminate the Red Dots and keep everyone consistent. We hit a home run, but I'm always trying to cover all the bases, just in case.

Thanks.

I can't speak for anyone but myself, but at the two tcs races that i ran the mini pro I ran a box stock novak ballistic and just played with timing on the motor. I really hope this class continues next year because it was really enjoyable not having to worry about silver cans and rpm's. we are planning to run a 17.5 mini class at our local track and most guys are really happy with it so far.

I ran that same motor in the inaugural Mini Pro class at the TCS Regionals here at Tamiya Aliso. I let it eat with about 55* of timing and the 20 pinion. Scored a TQ and win.
Way more fun than goofin with silvercans.
Haven't run it much since but did race it once soon after that TCS race on the same track with same tires and it seemed to just spin the front tires and wasn't hooked up at all like it was before. Nothing was changed.

I'm not sure what would be going on with your lack of traction. I used the same set of tires at both events and had no issues with traction just and oil change in the shocks to soften the car a little.

I actually raced the same car yesterday and tq'ed and the win at my local track. the car performed flawless.

what kind of diff are you running?

55* of timing worked well for me too, and I run an M-06

I much prefer brushless to silver can and glad that my local tracks and racers are going that way. Work on setup, not motor... In the long-run, much less expensive than silver can.

I run the same ol gear diff setup the way it's always been, good enuff.
No hi dollar mini for me, never been my first choice but it's always a fun and super competitive class for sure.

Default TSC ??? For Fred

Hey Fred,

For the fun portion of the Nats program (Wheelie car race), is this open to the VW Bus only, or can we bring our Midnight Pumpkin, Lunch Box, etc, provided that it is a wheelie car?

I'd love to be able to run the MP around the track with other runners. But if its Buses only, then so be it.

Thanks,

EBR
