I think he's hoping for GT1 to be open mod, not spec 10.5 mod.

Ah yes, GT-1 as open Mod, just like it was in 2004 and prior. That would be fun. Maybe I won't sell that 4.5 motor now. Maybe I will have to buy more 415 parts.

10.5 is fast enough... face it , your just trying to show off saying "i got a fast motor" . FACE IT MAN... open mod is a thing of the past! 2c lipo and 10.5 is all u need in rubber T/C. better competition and more fun since well.... EVER! don't ruin it for the rest of us. You can take your 3.5 and go play in a church parking lot some where and see how fast you can go.

he probably didnt realize you meant "armature" size, as you typed "axle". i was confused as well... i didnt see how axle size could make a difference either.

the armature and axle are 2 different things they both make a motor run differently when the size is changed.

Actually, a 3.5 or 4.5 is a blast to run at the Tamiya track. Not sure what you point is but Tamiya ran "Open Mod" as the GT-1 class up through 2004. I hardly doubt Open Mod is a thing of the past. Just look at all the major TC events with rubber tires. If a person is "showing off" becuase they have the talent to drive a fast motor better than others, then that means they are a talented and skilled show off in my book.

Deven-I'm having a hard time understanding why different axle sizes changes the way the motor performs. Can you explain it please?

I'm assuming that a larger axle through the magnet means less magnet material overall. It's probably a much smaller difference than the overall magnet diameter.

I would kill for a real Open Rubber T/C class.
Problem is, there arent enough comperable racers that can handle that kind of power. Some NOOB comes along thinkin' he can hang and distroys all his stuff (and maybe even some of yours too) try'n to keep up. I would rather have more racers in one class then five guys in each . Furthermore and thank GOD for the TCS Races, most of the so called fast guys are using foam on their touring cars. I seem to recall some quote: "The higher, the fewer." Where as I perfer this one: "The more, the merrier." And I hope I spelled that right. >lol< Ever wonder why there is only a handfull of Champions in that class? Just wrap that one around your brain for a bit.
