Default Chargers RC - Yeronga Onroad

A total of 34 Drivers turned up for The Easter Good Friday Racing Night .

Adam Snook (540 Masters), Warren Herson (540 Pro), Brad Hall (540 Novice) and Brian Milton (Mini) all took home a Chocolate Easter Egg for 1st Place overall after 4 rounds - every round counted.

A few ideas were thrown around for the design for the next season's track layout. All shall be unvailed next fortnight.

What - on the control tire (Proline Control K) or foams ?

I think most people will be trying to get used to the next track design so they can qualify for the class they want to compete in.
It should be a faster track this time with a few more straight bits.

I think we only get two race nights before the "winter" series starts. Not sure - I'll ask around.

I'd suggest hunting down and killing all those people who told Me that there was no racing at Yeronga... I was all geared up to race there and then was told it wasn't on ... and I had no idea who to contact to confirm it

maybe next time

Just so there is no misundestanding re Yeonga.

There are currently 4 classes being raced at Yeonga. All use 540 motors except Mini which allows Sport Tuned as well.

Novice (any rubber tyre)
Pro (Control tyre)
Masters (Control tyre)
Mini.(Tamiya Mini and only Mini Cooper body)
Before each season we have a couple of race nights with the new track layout. Over those two weeks we decide a cutoff for the qualifyng ranking for moving drivers into each class.

Last season drivers in Novice had to do 23 laps to get into pro and Pro drivers had to do 25 laps to get into Masters. Promotion will be automayic if you do teh required number of laps and will take place before the start of teh next season.

A new layout will be used next week and will be used for two weeks before the points start. I believe we are considering only allocating points to financial members of Chargers just like all teh other clubs around Brisbane do with their championships.

So in summary drivers who are new or who can't do the required number of laps will start the season in novice. Then drivers will be allocated to Pro or Masters depending on teh laps they do or their known ability. Type of car does not come into it as long as it's a touring car. There is no Tamiya class as such except for Mini.

For your info we have run stock class before and it died - presumably because it wasn't fun.

As you know we have a very late night already fitting in the number of races that we have. If we introduce another class we will have to drop back from 4 races to 3 and I don't think anyone wants that.

Default Racing at Yeronga High is not Dead

Well said Heavy.

We get a lot of young drivers in the Novice class so late nights aren't healthy for them and a few drivers like to get to Hungry Jacks after racing to snack and shoot the "breeze". (HJ closes at midnight)

ShadowAu, Since we race indoors on carpet, we don't suffer from cancellations because of rain. We regularly have an excellent turnout.
You won't get sun burnt but how well you drive will determine if your car will suffer from skin damage instead. (The barriers are unforgiving)

the club web site www.chargersrc.com (although it hasn't been updated recently) has details for contacting Mark. Alternatively you read about it here or ring me 0405190995.
The only night I remember racing being cancelled in the last year and a half was when half of brisbane had no electricity - Once.

Try and get there at about 6:30pm because the extra man-power helps get the track assembled so you can then practice a bit before racing starts. We all appreciate help putting everything away afterwards too.

Smile Yeronga Motors

There has been some talk of possible motor changes to the Masters 540 series at yeronga.

One of which is the Stinger 20 turn traxxas motor being used in masters.

I will be trying this motor this week to see how it gos compared to the normal johnson 540.

Hopefully it has a bit more pace!!

TC321go, I also heard that the Tamiya Sports tuned motors may be trialled.

... and Roadrunner want to try a Rebuildable Stock motor.

I think this Friday night may be a "Play Night" for motors and then the guys can vote at the end of the night depending on results and availability of the motors. (540 Masters Only)

Default They came, they tried a few, they voted.

The drivers in the 540 Masters class have decided to
run the winter series with the Tamiya sports tuned motor
(just to give a bit more speed)
The control tire stays the same - (Proline Control K)

It was interesting to see Mr Tamiya's car with the "Type S". It slid around all the corners sideways - 23turns was just too quick for the grip.

One more practise round before the winter series starts.

Mr Tamiya's mini was plenty quick on Friday - blue bits or not, it was flying.
