The thing to remember though, is most of the rest of the world has ditched SC a long time ago, and a lot of what we are tossing over is but a distant memory. Nothing wrong with SC, BUT we are many years behind everyone else for tech, they are discussing what type of brushless to have for lower classes, not if they should bring back SC's
I still like the idea of brushless for the class for NZRCA sanctioned events. Clubs run SC if they want for regular racing, and no doubt would. When it comes to the hand-out SC's there is more variation in the motor's than I car to think about for an "equal" class. For club racing it doesn't matter to me, but for the Nats it's a crap-shoot for the lucky motors. People are water dipping, 30 minute break0-in's etc, and that is not the sort of thing novices can usually manage.
What we REALLY need to sort out, is whether stock is a NOVICE class, or a SPEC class. That should really dictate what motors we should run.
