Motor ? for a Heads Up class.

Just needing some advice here? I have a 55 chevy pro mod resin on a carbon fiber chassis with 1"3/16 X .435 at a 140 gram weight class. What would be a good motor to use to run on a 1/8 mile at .599 or faster? Also gearing that you would recommend for this class. Thanks Teddy.

Re: Motor ? for a Heads Up class.

hi Teddy, are there no motor limitations? if not then a quad 20 should do it nicely if you are allowed to glue the track also a vr20. i would run a 10/60 to start with. because of the weight of your car you might even try a 9 pinion.
good luck

Thanks RC, I seen your reply on club & it is a inline carbon fiber chassis. We are allowed to use glue for this division. I am sure it is anything goes on motor, but like I said it will be a hard body at 140 gram class. Thanks for your input. Teddy Burris.

Re: Motor ? for a Heads Up class.

This sounds like the same class we are starting. 140gr min .599 or better only, unlimited motor glueing only alout up to the tree from what I understand, hard body no FC bodies. I have a G27 motor that has a cracked magnet I need to replace but not sure how to do it or who to send it to for a rebuild.

Small world Same track. Only other thing is .500 wide tires minimum no FC bodies and I haven't heard we can glue the whole track just up to the tree.

I think a Boss 490 would be a good choice for that weight class. To get that Gp 27 worked on, try Hahn Rebalencing. They are on FB. BTW, I race in the Charlotte NC area...

Jim Hahn built me a vr extreme.  At 131 with lane prep it went 520 in the 1/8th.  Nice little motor.  Group 20 may be better for you with no glue.

VR12 or 20 is a great motor for the money!

Re: Motor ? for a Heads Up class.

Is a VR12 better in a light car, or can it handle a heavy car? Is it an RPM or torque motor?

Re: Motor ? for a Heads Up class.

Torque mainly,  I like the vr20 more and it is not much more money.
