Need a bit of advice, whats gonna be a good BRUSHED motor for the winter at Os? Am thinking an 11x1 might be a little too much.

I always liked 12 or 13t indoors back in the brushed days :thumbsup:

I prefered a ten double. Down to what you prefer. Major torque use a ten, more of a relaxed accelaration and more top end use a 13d

Have you raced indoors at Oswestry before ?
If not, then its not that big and you can get upto 30 laps in the 6 min heat (depending upon track layout).
I run a 10.5 brushless with lipo and its quick enough.
I have run a 6.5 and spent most of the time trying to keep the car in a straight line. :lol:

Phil, Its been a while since I ran indoors, I assume its similar to how frodsham was back in the late 90's since that was when I ran indoors last.

Think for safety I will stick somit slower in, just until I have seen layouts grip etc.

I'm looking forward to this on Thursday as I only have 7.5 slowest!!!!

Should be fun!

what surface do you race on?

Carpet, unless the moths have eaten it over the summer. With patches of old wooden floor where the carpet is not long enough.

Me and ash will be at the club from about 11am to start tidying up indoor and try and get the rostrum up and the carpet down.

When and how often do you guys race at oswestry? how many heats/rounds are there too?

06-10-2009, 08:21 PM
Every thursday night starting at about 7 we normally have 3-4 heats of about 6 or so cars
