Hello.

Some help please.

Right, current set up, Xray X12. HPI Flux Pro 10.5 motor. Hobbywing xerun 2.1 speedo, Reedy 7000mah lipo batteries, 76 spur 41 pinion. Rollout of 74.5

I managed to finish 6th in the C Final on Saturday. My best finish to date this season. Clean run, handled well, and no big mistakes. However It seemed to be very sluggish with no real acceleration through the infield too compared to most other cars. I dont think I could get many more laps out of the car due to the lack of speed.

How can I get more speed? is it the motor? Gearing? I could probably be a bit tighter round the corners and a bit more consistent but I want to be faster, straight line speed.

Any advice?

Ian

Hey,

I think your just over geared by looks of things. Around 65mpr will be closer to what you need.

. Do you race uk 12th nats? I have posted my se up online, feel free to drop your car on my desk if your at the same race and I can take a look. :-)

Cheers
Oj

Yeah I was at Crewe. I am trying the black rotor in my HPI Flux. And will gear down a bit and see how it go's.

Cheers
