Yes the Peterborough track will allow 1/8 brushless to run during club races and trophy races*. The committee will discuss the possibility of mandatory pit stops for the brushless vehicles.


*it is yet to be determined that all of our trophy races will allow brushless in the 1/8 classes however we will try it.

aren't Nitro motors running best at about 190F and up? I don't know of any properly set up electric motors that run up there. and the only person that I know that has a spur gear hanging out the back is me!! and I'm 99.9% of the time off the gas when on my lid. (sorry Andre!!)

Looking forward to running some brushless 1/8 this year . Actually if you guys get the horsepower to weight ratio close to nitro 1/8 . I Would see if the powers to be a GLORCS would let you run in the series . Just a thought .

Brushless motors could usually handle temps of up to 100 Degrees Celcius on the outer can(who knows how hot it really is inside..) but If if you have everything setup properly... it should be less than 70 Degrees..
The motors are able to put up with a lot of abuse.. the ESC is what you have to worry about. I usually just get a super powerful/over rated ESC...
The Power of BRUSHLESS!!!!!
1HP (electric) = 746 Watts.
Everything is brushless!!
