I don't race in this class but how much additive you put on your tyres may be another consideration, if you're allowed to use it of course :)

The question you have to ask yourself is "are you promoting a professional club or a place for the less experienced to get started in rc?"

With the latter, the newer people to r/c are more focused...

You're welcome :) :tire:

I made that very same mistake when I got my T4 '13, felt like such a waste to replace a brand new lipo with a different one as I had no use for it, but it had to be done.

My son had a TT01 with a 540 in it just to try the hobby and I know exactly what you are referring to.

for ease of fitting, I would recommend a lipo without wires. (corally tubes coming from the top)

I keep mine fitted in the car all the time and only take it out when I have to change gearing.

Is there a notable performance difference between the v1 and v2 motors? what has it equated to in lap time differences? (might snag a v1 cheap if there isn't much difference).

I would be fairly confident in trying that :) One consideration is that the lipo does not rub on the belt, as you mention stoppers should eliminate that.

The car is a great platform to work with.

In stock form, the weak points are the plastic toe blocks and shocks.

Swap them out for TRF items as soon as you can, then also look at a twin deck...

Probably the bottom chassis got beaten up with all the stones etc. Also another reason why I do not like ball differentials, as they are usually open to dirt coming in.

yes, foam tyres :)

I use the T4 '13 and 30mm rear tyres do not fit. I had to trim a few mm off the inside lip and even then it's close. (the inside of the rim rubs on the lower shock mount).

I only race touring cars on carpet but hopefully this will help you a little.

I would start with 42/40 or 40 front 37 rear shore if you are using additive.

Here in the UK we dropped 13.5 boosted on a 10x15metre track a few years ago because it was insanely fast.

I could drift some corners with full power during a race and although it were fun and...

I would not be at all surprised to see weight limits go down again.

I wonder with battery size getting smaller if we would see top decks be lower down too?

And it would be interesting to see...

We still race 13.5 blinky and 17.5 turbo on foams, but we are in the UK.

We banned additive too, improves tyre life and made people work on getting the setup right.

Get a good feel for the club you wish to join before committing, that way you'll be able to get a note of how many people are racing in what class and possibly with what car too...
