Default 2019 Hills Off Road Vintage Festival EP10 OFR

Hello all Vintage RC car enthusiasts!! The Hills Off Road RC committee is proud to announce that it will be hosting the 2019 Vintage Festival on November 9 & 10, so mark it in the calendar, book flights/cars/leave/brownie points, lock yourself in the man cave/garage/workshop/dining room and get wrenching!!


I’m happy to say that the committee for 2019 is as supportive of vintage racing as our previous committees. We will continue use the cut-out to bypass the main jump section (this will be used for all classes) We’ll also setup the bypass of the steps for plastic fantastic, misfits/pipe frame and hotshot and leave it to a vote of the drivers in purist which way they want to go.


Summary of changes for 2019


The biggest change for this year is we have moved the cutoff for vintage eligibility to 31st December 1992. A while ago we asked for feedback in relation to this and it was well received. This isn’t a rolling change that will occur annually, just a rejig to allow the inclusion of a few “orphan” buggies like the Bosscat and Dyna Storm to have a run in the vintage class. It also tidies up the inclusion of the Top Force Evolution in the vintage class. If you have a car that you think will now be eligible, please get in touch.



The purist class has been a great success with fun racing and good turnouts. Just to clarify the kyosho eligible buggies, the worlds winning car was actually a twin deck Ultima that became the Ultima Pro, so the Pro and the original ladder chassis are both eligible for the class



We received positive feedback regarding the 4wd Outlaw Demo class (for 4wd buggies up to 2003) we trialled last year and there have been other people expressing interest in running it this year, so it’s included in the schedule as a proper class. Check out the guidelines for the details of the class.



We will continue to allow both classic and vintage buggies to compete in the open class. Monster truck class has been put on the backburner this year to allow Stadium Truck to go back onto the Sunday schedule



2wd Stadium truck will move back to Sunday (4wd Day) also a few of the punters asked us to look into dropping the speed back a bit so we’ve elected to move to 17.5 brushless or higher (any roar legal motor) with zero timing esc (blinky mode) and the brushed option will be the Axial 20t Brushed motor Part no. AX24003 and of course you can run higher wind sealed-can motors like sport tuned/torque tuned. The Axial motor has been chosen as supply is very good with high availability (Ebay and locally) and they’re cheap as well as being able to withstand the rigors of use in crawling applications



So the thread isn’t such a massive read, attached to the opening post is the Vintage Festival guidelines which should help you work out where your car can fit in and which motors etc can be used. If the answers aren’t in the guideline please send me a pm or ask in here and someone will know. I will update this first post with any new information as well as post in the thread



As usual I’ve also attached the eligible buggy/truck lists. If there’s a buggy you have and you feel it should be on the list, please get in touch and if it’s eligible, we’ll add it.



We always mention that if you have multiple cars eligible for a class, please feel free to run them all during the day, if you have 6 x 2wd vintage cars setup, run a different one each race! And if you have too many vintage cars to run, put a sport tuned motor in one and run it in classic



Entry fees will be $20 for the 1st class, $15 for the second and $10 per additional class after that, you can enter up to 3 classes per day. If you bring your kids (16 and under), they're just $10 per class.



Handout 540s are available for $20 per motor. Please order your motors when you enter the event. Thanks to Ari at Northern Beaches Hobby Centre and Hobby Express for arranging the supply. You can also buy them direct from Northern Beaches hobby centre and quote JOH-683 as the part number



The BBQ will be running for lunch as per usual and cold drinks will be available all day and we’ll update you closer to the date if we’ll be able to run breakfast as well. We’ve also got a pie warmer so there will be pies and sausage rolls as well as ice creams in the freezer



Drivers meeting 730am




******Racing will START at 8am SHARP on BOTH days******





The events to be held on Saturday are:



• 2wd Vintage Stock



• 2wd Open (Vintage or Classic)



• 2wd Classic – Sport tuned



• 2wd Purist Stock



• Plastic fantastic






The events to be held on Sunday are:



• 4wd Stock Vintage - 540



• 4wd Open (Vintage or Classic)



• 4wd Classic - Sport Tuned



• 4wd Misfits/Pipe Frame - 540



• 4wd Outlaw Class - 540 (Buggies up to 2003)



• Stadium Truck



• Hotshot




We will be having approximately 4 minutes between each race – as there are lots of us running multiple classes



MVP - On Sunday afternoon we will present the trophy for MVP (Most Vintage Pride). This will be an entirely subjective award which will come down to biggest effort for the weekend so it will encompass thing such as (but not limited to) display vehicles/arrangement, attire, attitude, competing in the spirit of the event, tallest stories about the good old days, rarity of vehicles raced etc. Being No.1 on the track won't make you the MVP. Being No.1 in the pits will! Wiggy took it out in 2013, Stephen James in 2014, Pete Wagner in 2015, Dean (Captain Splatt) in 2016, Scotty Hogan in 2017, Rob Smith in 2018 who will pick up the prize in 2019?



We’ll also have trophies for concourse as well as our “coolest car raced” awards on each day



The festival has been growing with each year. We love seeing the variety of cars being raced and put on display. If you’ve never entered a festival before, give it a go!! There’s a friendly atmosphere and everyone is happy for others to check out their cars and have a chat and it isn’t a race for sheep stations on the track with plenty of fun classes in the mix allowing you to run the beginner based models such as the Frog or Hotshot against similar style cars. If you have any questions, please feel free to post here or send me a pm, we’re only too happy to help and offer advice/assistance.



I genuinely appreciate feedback/thoughts from you, if you have any ideas of a cool class, we can always do like we did last year and run a demo class to see how it’s received and go from there



Cheers and we look forward to seeing you all there!!



Mikey and the Hills Off Road RC Committee

Hey guys, just had a query relating to the brushless motors in truck, as stated in the original post above, the motor needs to be roar legal (essentially as long as you would be able to use it at an AARCMCC santioned event, its fine) but no "outlaw" motors etc, which would defeat the purpose of trying to slow the class down. i dont think we're going to run into dramas with this, but if you are looking at motors, its up to you to determine its legality by referring to AARCMCC lists or ROAR motor lists

I've noted that the guidelines file attached didnt reference the roar legal requirement for the motors, so i've attached updated guidelines now

All the best with your builds or rebuilds. i look forward to seeing what projects you guys are working on, feel free to post here or on facebook

Cheer

Michael

Hey Dave

The track is located at field 4, Fred Caterson reserve, Caterson drive, Castle Hill

https://www.ingeniaholidays.com.au/s...m_campaign=gmb

That holiday park has cabins and caravan sites and it's about 10 minutes or so from the track

Cheers

Michael
