Old board vs New

Has anyone used the tamiya dyno to see what difference the upgraded board makes on box stock motors.

Or is the board basically for running hotter motors.



Thx,
signed wondering :D

I've got the Tamiya speed checker, but the F1s are too long to fit on it.

Thanks Bolter, I just got my speed checker today.
I'm just gonna bite the bullet and get a New F1.
I want to be competitive at Madness next week.
The F1 is one of my favorite classes.

the new F1's aren't legal to run in the PN Races yet. if that is what you are refering to the PN World Cup at RC madness.

My best.

They updated the rules and it now reads 3004 and 3010 FETs are allow in F1 class...

Well they pretty much have to do it at some point, considering how hard it is to get older F1s.

Dean, while I can't answer your question with actual facts, I can say that our small club regularly races old and new gen F1s together. I've got a few of both models myself, and while the 3010 fets are definitly punchier and probably a bit faster, a good driver with the old F1 and x-speed can be plenty competetive. Of course when you're racing in world-cup events, you probably want things to be a bit more equal.

my .02 anyway...
