Now ... anyone from this forums will attend the event as public or competitor ? ...
Post here your thoughts !!!
Yes a few of us from Australia will be attending the World Championships in October. I won't be racing as I'm racing 8th scale now but will be mechanic for Craig Hawkins who will be running 235mm. I know of at least a couple of others from Australia who will be running both 200mm and 235mm.
Jwf-Ronni the 235mm class is now 4wd at all IFMAR events and has been for 12 months or so.
Che it's not just ROAR who have dropped the 235mm 2wd class most if not all of the blocks ROAR, FEMCA, EFRA and FAMAR are running 235mm 4wd now.
Also for those running 235mm you might want to have a look at the updated 235mm rules on the IFMAR web site IFMAR
A couple of changes to note are the new weight limit
"1975 grams/4.3540 lbs. including transponder"
Also that Turbo Plugs can now be used with the new rule reading
"Only glow plug ignition is permitted"
Where as before it mentioned Only glow plug ignition using standard 1/4-32 UNEF glow plugs is permitted.
So I imagine a lot of the 235mm drivers will be buying turbo buttons and plugs
