What he ^ said. I run a 1700 and it's more than enough for Clark and the defunct MARCCA (longer straights) track. If you go to bigger tracks the 1900kv is probably the one you want. That said, no "smoker" has ever out motored my 1700/4s setup.

Yes, in most cases. I go 15 minutes with a 1700kv/4500mah 4s. You'd want to gear, and set the speed control conservatively (low/no timing, low current limiter setting as possible).

Thanks for the offer but we have to wait for the track to dry before we can get back on it. I'll keep you in mind if we need a hand after it dries out!

It will all depend on the weather. We are doing whatever the track allows us to get done. The heavy rains last week put a stop on track prep for awhile. We will try our best to open as soon as we can.

Open House tomorrow? We had some rain the last few days and we will see how the track dries today. We will post an update tomorrow morning to see if we can get on the track.
