Vtrax testing this weekend was awesome. We made huge improvements and had 5 viper drivers helping us out at the track. The quality of the ESC is superb. We were pushing it to its limits and it did not heat up above 110*. Can't wait for it to go on the market now

over the weekend had a good run with my 17.5 1/12th scale during the roar region 11 regionals. was battling for the lead but had a mishap and ended up finishing 3rd but did pull the fastest lap of the weekend in 17.5 1/12th using the viper vtrax1 and the viper vst 17.5 with 12.5 rotor.

rollout was at 105mm with the timing maxed out on the can. 44mm tires in the rear.

vtrax 10 can handle as low as a 6.5 t motor.

vtrax 10r has everything the vtrax 10 has except there is no motor limit.

vtrax 1 is the 1s version for use with 3.7 volt lipo's and has a built in booster so no need for a reciever pack. but this speedo can also handle 2s for tc racing .

im sure weylin would be able to list more details.

Jeff answered most of it. The Vtrax10 will actually be able to handle 5.5t on 2s with no boost/ or 6.5t on 2s with boost.

Vtrax10R - no motor limit on 2s

Vtrax1 - designed for all 1-2s racing, no rx pack necessary for 1s racing. No motor limit 1s lipo, 5.5t limit on 2s lipo. Plus it's black .



Peter and I did mod tc 10.5 boosted testing last night with a VST 10.5/Vtrax10R combo. The system is working very well - great power, esc temps averaged 90*, motor temps about 130*. We're very close to production now. I cant wait!

Is there any way I can get a 1/8 motor to test in my GTP's. Eagletree V4 is ready for raw data.
