Due to a minor miscommunication, I posted the wrong rule set for Super Stock. We will be using the ORRCA rules and tyres will be open rubber or foam, with no traction additives allowed on either.

I have amended the entry form and edited my original post to reflect these changes.

Also note that for this event motors do not have to be on the ROAR or BRCA lists, however they will still be subject to inductance tests during the event.

Just tried to nominate online on the ORRCA site.

The only options are Gas Tourer or Nitro Tourer.

Do we just select the Nitro Tourer class to enter SSF.

Cheers

Good idea Dave,
I'll get up a list later on today, we are going to be flexible on the closing date for nominations. So there is still time to get your nominations in.
While we are going to be strict on ROAR approvals for experienced drivers in SSF, for those Novices that have things like 10.5 Trackstar motors we will leave it up to the club to decide.
So if you are new to this kind of regulated competition please don't be afraid to give it ago.
Look at Dave, he's still a Novice and he's going to have a go. :-)

As commented on above, the club can use its discretion with respect to ROAR Compliances in SSF. The Stated motor is a good example of something that is in wide use and is not any more competitive then anything else.

So just to clarify... it up to the CLUB's discretion as to whether they choose to run the ORRCA rules?

Thankyou for your answer.

Considering the confusion some people may have had over the rules it would only seem reasonable that vice presidente graham1234 should edit his above statements.

Just another quick question and I don't mean to be a rule buster, but I'm pretty sure the rule states for maximum width on wheels/tyres is 27mm wide by ORRCA but what will happen if your running foam rear tyres which are 30mm wide, plus I think the cars overall width will be over the 190mm as well with foams. Will this be over looked for this certain event I just want to clarify this before the shit hits the fan.

Thanks Michael

Thanks for the queries Michael. The ORRCA ruleset for 10.5t has different allowances for foam and rubber tyres. The maximum width of foam tyres is 31mm while the maximum width for rubber tyres is 27mm.

Last night I walked through the pits and put a ruler on as many different cars as I could and most were under 190mm wide by 2-3mm. The few that were over or right on the limit were Associateds and Hobbyking cars. The AE cars were only over by 1-2mm at most and some of them were actually 1-2mm under the limit. The one Hobbyking car that I measured was about 197mm.

It is also worth noting that for quite a while, Tim Weier has been running his Tamiya with cut down foams on the rear, instead of spacing them out. Tim is always at the pointy end of the field and often comments that he still has too much rear grip to get the car to rotate fast enough, despite the narrower foams and 0 rear toe.
