which is better on a dirt oval?
I messed around with a DD car for a bit. I noticed that it broke the wheels loose easier. A lot less rotating weight let the motor "spool up" quick. With brushed motors, you'd fight to get the gear ratio low enough since you didn't have three gears for reduction. End up with a real small pinion. I would assume that isn't such a problem with brushless. With the old CW DD car, the ball diff was exposed to the elements and always got gritty. I would stay away from DD unless you are on a BIG track.

what would you consider a big track? what run line length would you say?

Any track where you don't lift in the corner, or hardly lift. Tracks where the corner speed really doesn't fall off much.

Back in the days of purpose built dirt oval cars, the Badger, Dominator, and Titan were DD cars and with silicone tires were very sucessful.
