1:32 CH01-23 first tests

Post by kiklo »

Just to brake it. They are the fastest so far.

I did a few laps without much tuning, just as the came out of the print. No body yet.

I tested both versions with same motor and ESC. I did not have more available ESC's.

These are both RE ( rear engine ) versions at 75 mm WB. Going to make a few Peugeot 206/ Toyota. Starlet out of them.

No doubt 32 size feels quicker on the track. And they are. Down from 10.5 as the fastes so fare for the 1:24 scale.

I did a few 10.1xx on bothe these 1:32 cars.

BUT the first one with battery in normal position sits looser on the track and is less willing to turn when not connected to the magline - slightly too light front end.

That's why I teste with a 'front' battery as well. I feels easier to drive and I shave another 0.02 sec of the laptime, just after a few laps.

I'm going to put up some videos in a few days - even witout bodies.

Kim, You Probably know that you can use a short piece of wire, about 30mm, for the antenna instead of the long coax the receiver came with.

Your car designs have evolved into a very professional package. Good work! Looking forward to a video.
