1 cell, it's much softer on the bottom. I have run 7.5 and 1s, it's not bad

i'll be in soCal in a week.

Weather permitting, i'll be @ tamiya on 10/28. I'll test my nationals-winning 104v2 with both a 17.5 and 13.5

Now that F1 is no longer a Japan class, How many past champs were in the F1 final?

I'd say the quality of F1 drivers has improved....

-- Let's air 'em out a little bit.

Go big or stay home!

bruce


ps- rob, that 1 cell idea is interesting.....

Probably not... But most of the time nobody is going to enforce the rules.

The last TCS race I was at, someone was running a SWB body on a MWB chassis, and won...

The TCS rules state the Reedy Mach 3 21.5 will be the motor spec'd for the 2018 season. See screen shot attached of the rules PDF...

I've been running my Novak since returning to the hobby but would prefer to practice with the Reedy Mach 3 Spec motor.

Can anyone confirm the Reedy Mach 3 will be used in 2018 also, or will Tamiya Fred change his mind?. I don't want to blow $100 on an outdated motor, I already have enough of those.

I would wait because there is an unofficial rumor that they will be switching to the fixed timing Reedy motor for next year and the price is around $55.
Just my 2$
