Ok guys.  After watching the TOP Gun Challenge I really want to try my hand at running TCs.  I'm assuming that since I'm a newbie that 17.5 would be the place for me to start out.  My questions is what motor/ esc combo is a good choice?  I'm thinking of going with either a Speed Passion set up or a Tekin Redline (not the pro system) set up.  I know that Nor Cal has Tekin on site and a lot of guys use it.  That is one of the reasons I'm looking at getting one. Any other systems I should be looking at?

YOYOYO Francis. I got 1s thunder power pack for my WGT & 1s phantom pack (basicly thunderpower cells) for my Gen X 12. They each have the novak smart boost and work great. You may want to talk to Ronnie & Greg as there boost is half the size of the Novak. Thats probably the only thing I would do different. Punch wise & power it seemed to be able to hang and not fall off @ TOP GUN with the other WGT cars. My 12 scale is still in process but OD posted a pic of how u could use a the TP pack with the T bar.

TOPIC: Norcal On-Road Carpet 1/12 scale 1S lipo battery. Novak Smart Boost already in the equation.

For the guys running 1S packs, what 1S brand lipo pack has been tested/run so far with good results; SMC, Thunder Power, Reedy? Any noticeable punch, run-time or other differences and/or similarities?

What battery form factor would work best for 1/12th scale non T-bar chassis; inboard female bullet connectors or wired packs with Deans plugs.

Is there a case design on the SMC or TP packs with molded cells? I think I saw them on the Reedy 1s packs.

Thanks again.

Thanks to all that attended. This was a fun race but very challenging race format to run with all the last minute entries. We ended up pulling it out for the 120 drivers with great success. The heads up racing in both 13.5 and Mod was great to watch and the ifmar qualfying and triple A Mains in other classes worked without a glitch. The layout held up welll and made for some great racing.

 

Highlights of the weekend.

1) Kevin Woods run in 13.5 final round 7 from upside down 8 seconds back to almost win. Im telling you this run was so inspiring to watch. The rule never give up was tough to all of us on this one.

2) George Lin consistant running and hard fought win for the overall Top Gun win in 13.5.

3) The Tyler Vik, Aaron Biner finish in Mod round 5 finish had the place screeming

4) The Top Gun winner for 13.5 and Mod was decided in the last round. By one point.

5) Brunblays win in 17.5 triple A Mains and Podiuming in Mini

6) Zhaos efforts in 13.5 for the overall and his win in in the overall in Mini. Seeing the helmet on Zhao made the whole place laugh. Im sure youll see the pictures.

7) Langaricas dominance in F1 up till the final Triple A Main where a mistake cost him the overall.

8) Stephanson domination in WGT 1S buy taking the first two of the triple A Mains for the win.

9) Tyler Viks come from last to first in Round 7 final to give him a shot at the Mod overall. He did everything he could have to put him in for the overall win. Had I finished one spot worse he would have taken the Mod overall with his new track record run from dead last upside down and passing for the win o the last lap.

10) Lexs line through the Dragons back was the show of the week with the 720 rodeo flip of his car.

After the IIC, I plan to have two Gen-X 10s for running at NorCal.  One will follow the single-cell rules and the other will be a super fast two-cell outlaw version.

I promise to always yell out "four" before puttin' it on the track.

Hey "FrancoisMTB", did you sign up for the race this weekend? Do it you won't regret it? Maybe I'll do a century ride some time  with you and Chris.  Give me a few years. Also, get EUROGUN to come out and try the new track. He's missing out.

>>I think we should call it the "Dragon's Back Of Death" Layout! Your either gonna get through real fast, or rip the left front off your car....as E.J. watched me doCry

 

Yeah, the carnage is going to be spectacular. I heard some hideous noises yesterday as Cody's car crossed the barrier and landed on the other lane.

Here's my cool idea of the day... we should have the Norcal Hobbies webcam. And it will be focused on that section.  That way, folks stuck at work can really waste some quality time.

Once we get the green infield done we will post pictures. Probably Wednesday Night. Lex has spy shots he can post without the finishing touches if he wants.
