I would be curious to know who these great racers are because they obviously don't have a real good handle on the Brushless world.sprintr64 said:Iceman,
This is another one of those cheaper and less expensive classes, I pit with severial great racers and motor builders and some of these guys say that tuning or moving the timing is a big thing sine the socalled 4300 class is 100% equal, ( B S ). I have seen data that shows diffrent and the timing does make a diffrence. I would also add that to find out for sure is ask the manufacturer to get the solid answer.
I have to say, that is some of the best advice I have ever read on this site. :thumbsup:jbell31 said:If you want an advantage try this. Change one thing to your car (and only one) after you have practiced for 10 - 20 laps. Then go back out after you charge the batteries up again, and write down any difference in a book. When the car gets faster and/or handles better, keep that change and move to something else. Don't forget to change it back if it's worse or no change at all.
The above also works with driving style and matching that with the rollout and chassis setup. Again, go out with a full charge and do 10 - 20 laps driving as you normaly would. Come back in, charge it up again and do 10 - 20 laps using a different line. you can change the apex or when you let off the throttle, but be consistant. You will see a bigger difference using these two methods than anything you can possible do to a brushless motor.
Just my 2 cents worth.
I mentioned this on the Indy thread, but I honestly would start by buying the largest available pinion and smallest available spur for Indy. From there I would first make sure the motor does not get too hot. If it doesn't then do a full run for time and see what you get. Drop a couple teeth and do another full run and see if it faster or not. This is probably the quickest way to zero in.IndyRC_Racer said:This isn't a tuning question as much as a gearing question and maybe swtour can help. What is the actually RPM these motors are running at a big track like Encino Velo? I'm trying to figure out a starting rollout based on RPM (using Associated website) and the gear ratio is almost shocking.
