how long is heat? and how many heats?

must have spare TX and RX batteries.

hopefully i can go there to take somemore video and put on my web site. see the previous?

www.jimjim.fun.ms can also see my new body paint job.
This is just in from the latest newsletter thingamajig .... length of the finals depends on the number of cars...

Cars - Minutes
2-3 - 10 mins
4-5 - 15 mins
6-7 - 20 mins
8-10 - 30 mins

The heats are 5 minutes long and there are usually 3 heats (time permitting).

Your batteries should last the day if they're a reasonable capacity.

You'll have some more Stock class competition soon, my cousin's getting himself a V-One S II soon.

Franky,

Blew a plug so missed warmup and start, car was not as good as in heats so pushed too hard trying to catch up and broke the car.

As it turned out i should have just continued ata slower pace as everyone lese had problems too.

Another lesson learned.

Franky,

MRCCR does NOT have a policy of 'no trackside sales'.

We tried it at one stage but found it did more harm than good.

What i mean trackside selling, is sell 2nd hand items. not new things. like fuel, plug.

i would like to sell those my old stuffs.

i will stick to the rules. as long as there is no selling rules. i will only sell my stuffs on ebay.

i think if there is a 2nd hand market , will help ppl start their hobby. once they get in this hobby, new items and parts will be demanding for the local hobby shops. a lot of youngs would like to buy something cheap to start. once they get in. at least can keep them buying fuel. and filters from time to time.

i don;t understang why no 2nd cars sold in local hobby shop.

Dexter does that mean that SERCCC does allow trackside selling now. What was the change.

Just to clear up the issue, MRCCR was originally a 1/8 only club (before 235mm and NT) and the only way to get parts and cars was through backyarders. Trackside sales were allowed as this was often the only time guys could get their parts as well as the convenience factor.

After Pro NT's came in (few years ago) and Hobby shops were selling them, we approached shops about promoting the club and a number said they would not promote the club to their customers while trackside sales were allowed as they saw it as unfair competition.
The club took this on board and banned trackside sales but after a year or more we really didnt see any benefit in increased membership so we went back to how things were.

This is not to say that there is a mini shop at the track, in fact very little selling goes on, you probably couldnt tell.

Now SERCCC has come from different roots, originally being largely involved with a few local shops and the cars they used to run were the ones hobby shops could sell lots of and make $$$ on. Which is absolutely fine, I'm just saying that the 2 clubs have a different approach due to historical reasons.


Franky, Hobby shops really would not make any $$$ from 2nd hand cars and not many people want them, they'd rather get one out of the trading post.


You are welcome to bring your old cars to try and sell.
