I think both motors are a bit much for you right now. I think you said you ran gas, but nitro engines arent as sensitive as electrics are. A bit of a change in driving style when driving electric. Also the less winds the more maintence you will have to do on them. Fuku batts are the way to go. You would do fine with the 1.15's.

David- right, if you cut your comm, and don't change brushes, your running worn brushes on a good comm. Thats like putting old tires on some chromed rims(in real cars). If you get new rims, you get new tires. So if you cut the comm, you get new brushes. I saw integy has 1.18's at there website, is this just crap, or has somebody else caught up with jimmy.

David , what about your wife?

Their numbers may not be the same as jimmy's. Depends on what methods they use to generate their numbers.

Jimmy and Daniel,

I ran a 1.17 pack in Modified Sedan today and set TQ and did my fastest lap on lap 25 of 26 lap run!!! And that was with a 9 turn Ti motor. So talk about runtime and punch!!!


In stock Sedan I used a 1.16 pack and I qualified 4th in the stock Sedan A. In the Main I ran a a personal best lap and finished third.

Thanks for the great packs,
Ray

man do these batteries rock!I just came form the socal grand prix and i had the most punch in my class. The batteries peeked at 3800 mah at 8.5 volts!!!!!!!!!! I got tQ by a lap to bad i only got second at the end. but second still rocks

the only thing that was bad about the grand prix was that they tried to kick daniel out!!! they said he was selling batteries there but he wasn't. My friend bubbles said " if they kick him out i'm buying a nitro car" i think i would be right behind him. Luckily daniel is to cool to get kicked out of anything.
