im glad u can see my intentions jerk@@F i said 46-48 estimates.why doesnt everybody post thru u first
to see whats worthy of being posted. i would pay $100 just to be face to face to cowards like u talking sh##
on a keyboard i hope u get great satisfaction. if u live in ny i will pay your gas- memorial park, spring valley ny
u have an open invitation supertit

well honestly just race the guy.......I hate bench racers, just do it and post the results.....My bet is you will never race the guy ever and we will never ever hear any more of your fantasy race....

as for me being a coward, your the one who posted the silly thread, not me.....I only post about races that happened, not some BS race for $1000.00.........and as for calling me out, well you would get beat up bad, real bad......but since I live in Winnipeg manitoba canada there's no chance to prove that...so we'll just leave it at "my dad's tougher then your dad", and your the one making silly posts about imaginary Fast and furious RC racing for coin........

heh once they know what the other one can do whoever loses isnt gonna commit to the race anymore.

unless it is insanely close. than both sides will both do what they can, and at the end of the day better off heading to vegas and betting it all on black. atleast then you could both win

I suggest not flapping your gums about how fast your truck is in the first place LOL for someone to put up $1000.00 there must have been some pretty big claims being made..........race the guy and see who wins easy as that.

ididnt race yet hes only off on sundays and the weather is also an issue. i ran all weekend the o.s 30
is a monster i wore down the front diff cup so i was running in 2wd all weekend so the rear diiff finally gave out opened it up gears are chewed and all of that i noticed my stock linkage wasnt opening
all the way i was missing out on the topend but ill have to waite till wed when the parts come in.im
alittle skeptical about racing after most people say i will lose.the way my truck is runnig know im pretty
confident. i have a feeling hes gonna want to change it around after he sees my truck.

IM GONNA TRY AND GET THIS DONE FOR THIS SUNDAY. I WANT TO GET IT DONE BEFORE THE GRASS STARTS GROWING. MEM ORIAL PARK ,SPRING VALLEY NY 10977 ROCKLAND COUNTY I DONT
KNOW WHAT TIME YET BUT IF ANYBODY LIVES CLOSE YOUR MORE THAN WELCOME

Here is the math:

40mph x 5280 feet per mile=211,200 feet per hour. 211200/60 minutes per hour =3520 feet per minute. 3520/60 seconds per minute=58.66 feet per second.

Let's say that he can hit 55 (Which I seriously doubt - the 3 speed MAY add 10%, not 25%).

55mphx5280=290400/60=4840. 4840/60=80.66 feet per second

Your distance of 450 feet divided by 58.66=7.67 seconds
His distance of 600 feet divided by 80.66=7.44 seconds

How are you going to lose? With your .30 and larger pinions, you are going to be going faster than 40 mph. Keep your calm and you will beat him - without a doubt!

Even if you only get 45mph, you will have him by nearly a full second. Like a few others have said, it will come down to whoever doesn't screw up. Don't flip on the takeoff and don't flip on the turn. As a bonus to you, Savages are much more likely to flip in both directions (From wheelies and turning).

To anyone mentioning 70mph - The tires on these trucks would have a hard time handling that speed. The Savage that I had with an SH 28 running 18/49 - The tires ballooned so big that it was uncontrollable. That was maybe 45mph?? My big joes are much better, but at almost double the speed, I would question their ability to remain in useful contact with the terra firma.

that math is completey irrelevent unfortunatly. well... irrellevent unless they were running in a straight line, both with a running start to get to top speed; and 1 long run.

it fails to account for the acceleration and braking periods, factors which would be near impossible to compute. both cars will likely spend very little time at speed.

not saying he wont win by a land slide. but there is no realistic way to mathematicly figure this out unless you know the feet/sec^2 of acceleration and braking. being that its likely not a linear acceleration either, the equation becomes extremely difficult, dare I say way out of the realm of anyone here calculating.

have fun with the race, I have little doubt you'll win. still wonder what makes him so cocky to challenge you with such a crazy advantage.

I have went full speed with my savage and turned in the dirt, it ddn't flip over. maybe he lowered his chassis. My savage isn't slow(3spd, collari 32, weks pipe). i have a new steering servo and put some fuel tubing on my shock to drop it a little. ask em if he has alowered chassis and a better steering servo

make sure you set your truck low as you shouldnt be hitting any big jumps also it wouldnt hurt to bring a friend with you to marshal your car (god forbid it flips)

Tune the truck for top end...

run 40%
run the stock tires, or the tallest ones you can find
get a front only conversion, and swap the gears inside the tranny
taking your front drive shaft out would help, but you will lose the front brakes too

You will take him with a 50 yard head start.

FOC kit
Put the M427 in. The extra ports will help the breathing on the top end.
Losi Super Kingpin tires
No preload on the shocks
If you run 30% nitro you'll need to add a shim. I'd run 25%
In practice, determine how much fuel you need, it'll be less than a 1/2 tank.

There is no way he could win. If he put a 18t cb on to gain the top-end, he won't have enough bottom end to make up the difference.

You can blow an engine in a 100yd sprint so don't run too lean.

I have a LST (1) with the M427 and a 3 speed savage with an OS .30 runing a 17t cb and I wouldnt race a LST over this distance with a turn and expect to win. He's got to control the start to keep from flipping, slow down to make a turn, control the power to keep from flipping again... he can't win unless you flip at the start, mess up your turn or blow your engine. It's as simple as that really

try and be as prepared as possible even practice you dont know what this guy has up his sleeve he must not be a newbie to this to have the confidence to bet so much money. his truck must be real setup his engine could be moded could be lowered with a longer chassie could be using a supercharger. just dont under estimate him
