The current Lipos we are using do not like to go below 3.2V per cell. And IMO from the testing I have done anything below 3.5V hurts cycle life...

Hi Bob,

I tried the suggested changes to camber gain which did reduce mid corner steering.

I closely monitored the tyre wear patterns and observed the following.

Thanks, I was close to the middle of the range when I used them.

32's may have been viable at the time as well.

What surface are you guys running on. I have tried a few sets of TP 36's on high grip asphalt, they were cheap but didn't last long.

Insert was ok, I didn't have any issue with the rims but the...

The standard shock bladder works fine in terms of performance but swells and makes rebuilding the shock difficult.

The black bladders last for ages, and make building shocks easier.

A comparison of that nature back to back is virtually impossible but we did the above test out of our own interest.

RB 27T were 75-80w on my dyno at I think 6V.

We did a test earlier this year and RB 27T was faster than a 17.5T blinky.

Today we have higher voltage, less weight and cars generate more grip...

Thank you for the detailed response.

13.5T motors run cooler in boosted.

If you are running boosted it doesn't matter much, any decent 13.5T will do the job.

In blinky, killshot, Orca Tx, R1, HW V10 LRP X20 go well.
