is there really a speed difference between these two motors if you run the same bodies?

looking at the brl race the times were only .2 different per lap average

3.906 vs 3.708

so how much of that .2 difference is body?

Not much is the body. They are pretty different. You have to remember that is .2 per lap on a track that is about 150 feet.

Quite a bit diffrent even if your 10.5 car will only do a lap faster than the fast 13.5 guys car dont ask how I know LOL.

Things happen alot faster at 2 tenths a lap quicker.

At the Tri-Clone, the fast lap for a 10.5 tonight (Hays Jr.) was a 3.0. The 13.5 was about a 3.5-3.6 with a COT body. Definately more than .2!!!

andy koback

the figure I used for .2 per lap is based on the brl race a main winning runs since that is all that is posted. that was average based on 75 lap runs divided by the run time.

Very different feel between the two classes. 13.5 is momentum with very little acceleration. The 10.5 cars have a lot more rip even if the lap times are very close.
