Rob, you and your car looked really good, dialled almost

We do need more jumps, Northy may (or may not) have put in less than normal to make us vintages less likely to break

I laid it out that way for 3 reasons:

I was on my own.
It was different to a 'usual' York track.
We have a shortage of stuff to build jumps with really.

If Verminator is around, big jump that only a few can do, plus a little twistier.

G mate, the track on Saturday was excellent. Given a choice id choose that over one where a clean lap is hard to get without crawling so not to roll.

Hello

Are there going to be any vintage heats at York during the indoor season?

Cheers Dan, i was well impressed with the xx4 especially since it was the first time out with it, still not sure if the 6.5 is enough though. Re me, i like you too but not in that way, i was never confused lol

No doubt i'll be back up there at some point so Chris can get revenge and show me how to get over the bumpy bits.

Not on Lipo, using some old Batt 4000's untill my Corally 42's turn up. I'm geared at 20 84 with a Losi 6.5t i think all the Losi's are sintered. It felt very soft if you know what i mean, but i had been practicing earlier in the day with my Corally on roader with a 3.5t so its all relative.......
The Motor was pretty cool compared to my TC after a run, just worried about runtime at Worksop but after the 6 laps of practice and a 7 minute final without dumping i could be worried for nothing.

The softness is likely to be the cells, which you can compensate with a faster motor (ah the beauty of brushless), but if you're getting new cells I wouldn't bothed.

That said if you want to keep running the old cells all winter then a faster motor would compensate. I did this at this years York regional. I would normally run a 6.5L but the straight was long and I was on last years cells (keeping new ones for nationals) so ran a 5.5L. It got hotter than a 6.5L with new cells would have been but still fine for use.

I think the 4.5 would be too much at Worksop becasue there is no drag, but it's your money
