From the Fall Brawl GTC-Pro FK race with handout 7R motors.
In qualifying, there was only a .068 spread, from 1st-8th, and the spread from 1st-12th, was only .103,
In the race, a total lap record was set, and only two laps separated 1st-5th and 8 laps, 1st through 8th.
In comparison, at the last big Retro race, the Boola Bash, using any circa Hawk Retro, or Falcon 7, in qualifying, the spread from 1st-8th, was .179, and the spread from 1st-12th was .269.
In the race, 10 laps separated 1st-5th and 15 laps, 1st through 8th.
On the longer 220' SpeedZone Engleman, the slower/"longer" qualifying times should vary more, but the lap totals (on the longer lap length) should be a bit closer.
Regardless, with these 7R handouts, the results were way more consistent, just like Tim was shooting for when tightening up the tolerances.
And the track records in qualifying, single race lap time, and total laps, certainly DOESN'T indicate that a top 7R motor doesn't stand a chance against a top, older motor, as some guys were trying to interpret from Tim's dyno/non-real world graphs.
The above isn't any proof that maybe there are slow/small wire ones. (Please note the non ra-ra/non-positive, but realistic statement.)
But at least in the tray SpeedZone got, they appear to be "normal"/plenty fast, and more importantly, not mixed.
