Questions?? SCT rules.

If we use roar as a guide for approved batteries why don't we use an edited version of there rules for SCT.
Or is that just to easy?
Cheers

We'll have clarification ASAP on the SCT questions and rules so far.

I will go through this thread and list the questions posed so far and hopefully reply with meaningful information this week.

Under normal conditions you shouldn't require more than 1 set of rears for every 3 runs in Stock 2WD.

At club days I'm still using the holeshots I have left over from the State Titles after I took them off after 3 runs.

I was going to sort my entry today too, but I ran out of ink in my printer, so that scuppered my plan to print, fill in and then scan back in. Tomorrow then.

Why not indeed, what a radical idea Rob, especially seeing its an American 1:1 class that's the origin of the whole SCT thing.

That is what's mostly been used in events till now. The variation has been around which edits have been made. Our buggy rules are almost word for word the same as the US rules in many places too.

My 2 cent is if in a demo class we have to use roar approved batteries then we should be using roar approved body's and motors .

Maybe there should be a Dedicated thread started for SCT rules Discussion / Debate? Rather than clutter up the Nats thread.

Yes.. great idea.. but for those who are thinking of entering the Nats, I would think the SCT rules that will be in effect for this event should be here. That way there will be clarity on what rule set to follow.

Most of the discussion re: SCT rules in this thread has been specifaclly directed at the Nats, as SCT isn't a sanctioned class, therefore no national rule set has be ratified.

I think most will be OK with whatever the St Ives Committee come up with. It just needs to be made public in advance.
And I believe discussuions are well underway behind closed doors and they will post up something later this week.

I think there is an error on the Stock Spec ESC list. 81020170 (Blue), 81020171 (Blk) are the 120A-SD version of the Hobbywing ESC. The list has them down as 60A-SD. This makes no difference, but if someone is trying to find their ESC on the list then I hope this helps.

+1 all the sct questions that have been asked on this thread have to do with the nats/ st ives powers that be . as most of the people that run sct at ryde , maitland know or have been informed of the rules and regulations

This is an important question. The currently published rules still have the 6000 mAh capacity limit in them, but I'm lead to believe this won't be the case in the next update.
