I looked at the weather forcast for tommorrow and it is light rain early but then partly sunny after 9 am. I guess it depends on how much rain you had already and then how much can the track hold. If it holds I know I'm going to come down to run.

Going to try to run next weekend with at least one other that is not signed up for Short Coarse. Me and Donny Murlat if the weather is nice weekend.

I have a question on the race for next weekend or just your regular rules in general. I know you allow the SC10 to run in the CORR truck class but what are your rules on the motor that comes in the SC10?

Are you allowed to change the brushes in the stock SC10 motor or change the brush springs? Just checking before I do anything. My motor is bone stock so before I do anything like to see what you guys are allowing.

Thanks
Brian

Wheelbase:13.68 inches (347.58mm)

ROAR SCT Specs:

Overall Length Min/Max:540mm / 568mm (21.25in / 22.36in)
Overall Width Min/Max 290mm / 296mm (11.42in / 11.65in)
Wheelbase Min/Max: 320mm/335mm (12.59in / 13.19in)

As you can see, the Strike is both overall to long and the WB is to long for ROAR SCT racing.

You can see the size difference in this pic next to the SC10.

I just don't understand Losi decision making process not meeting the class specs?
So what are you're rules??? don't want to be there and not run

Yes, according to roar it is too big. But not many tracks are running by roar rules. I recall there are only two in PA. Garlands is not one of them. I took my strike out today with my son and his slash and we ran them together on the smaller track at Garlands and they are pretty much even. I believe someone ran the other night at bumps and jumps and saw the same thing between the slash, sc10 and the strike.

I thought the reason for the delay of the Strike getting out to dealers was Losi changed the truck to meet the ROAR rules. Not that it honestly matters because hardly anyone follows ROAR for anything around this area and when they do the races have alot smaller attendance.

The Losi ran at PitSTop Hobbies on Friday night. They had no advantage over the the Slash and SC10. The Slash ran the fastest laptimes of the night but I actually TQ'ed and won with my SC10 as I won with consitancy not speed. My buddies Losi suffered like my SC10 did with each of us running the stock tires that come on the trucks and they are just not as good as the ones that come on the Slash.

OUR INFORMATION FOR THE DELAY WAS THE SAME AS YOURS. WE WERE TOLD THE DELAY WAS CAUSED BECAUSE THE STRIKE DID NOT MEET "ROAR RULES", AND THEY HAD TO BE MODIFIED. THE STRIKE DOES SEEM TO HAVE AN ADVANTAGE OVER THE OTHERS ON OUR BIG TRACK. THE STRIKE MOVES OUT ALOT FASTER THAN THE OTHERS, AND KICKS TAIL ON THE STRAIGHT AWAY. ON OUR SMALLER TRACK, THEY SEEM TO BE ABOUT THE SAME.
WE ARE HAVING A R/C BASH RACE THIS SUNDAY (WEATHER PERMITTING) ON OUR BIG TRACK. THE YARD SALE/FLEE MARKET WILL BE HELD SATURDAY. COME ON OUT. ROBIN G'S R/C RACEWAY, INC.

I'm about 99% sure I will make it to the Bash on Sunday.

I have the SC10 SCT with the stock motor from the kit in. Are we allowed to change the brushes on these motors to different ones? Not sure what your rules are regaurding the SC10 motor. The other trucks have closed enbell motors and can't change the brush.

Just want to check on this before I do anything. Right now my motor is as it came out of the box.

Thanks
Brian

Great as I actually wanted it to be like that. Works for me as that is the way I think it should be.
