The final Street Eliminator episode….for this year! I swapped out our Pro2 5800kV mill for a GEN3 4.5T motor and started chasing more top speed. Since it’s so cold out and our road isn’t much in the way of traction, I decided to focus on getting the car to launch in better conditions and instead see how fast this car can go. I have to say I’m very happy with the speeds I am getting out of the 4.5T!
After slowly working my way up the ladder from the initial 44mph the Pro2 ran at stock ESC settings, I have now reached 72mph with the 4.5T, proper gearing and some tuning. I tuned the RS Pro with a HotWire 3.0 from my phone and I also kept track of each run with our Data Logging. This was key in seeing how far I could push my setup and in the end, we ended up going FASTER and keeping everything COOLER. Win-win right there! I still want to see if I can get more out of it.
