Aka make a very good sc tyre / foam product. Try grid irons on all 4 as a starting point. they don't seem to wear easily at Ryde either..

Hit out Ryde today, track is rocky but still in good shape, did some pipe repairs, and the hill climb section is pretty rough now, but all in all, good fun

Put the word out to anyone that had a truck/buggy that i saw to come down on sunday and check out Ryde on a club day

Looking forward to 4mod and 2wd stock this weekend, hopefully can drop some quick times down in both

Wooo Well done guys on the 1st/2nd at Nats.

Question: Where is everyone buying there LiPos from? For my planes I just pick them up from HobbyKing but was wondering if there was anyone local I should be supporting? Im happy to pay $50 for a 2S 4000mah 25c/30c/35c/40c pack if its going to help out a local.

Question 2: To run in the stock class does it have to be everything from the one kit, IE if I used stock tyres from another car.

ahh cloaked, the big question

For stock, pick a 17.5 brushless motor from this list
http://www.roarracing.org/?page_id=251

Pick a non-timing ESC from this list
http://www.roarracing.com/?page_id=737

Lipo batts must always be charged in a lipo sack, and would be preferred if from this list
http://www.roarracing.org/?page_id=259

Tyres are open unless you are at a Nationals or sponsored event then they will provide the details, club days are open as long as they are 1:10 and suit the model

If someone is referring to "boxstock" they usually mean RTR which is ready to run, most ready to run cars come with a hot motor and would only qualify for MOD class once the driver was happy enough to move out of novice

Hope this helps

Just to clarify what Syndicate mentioned:

The above links are for Nationals or Strict Club rules.

Most clubs will let you run adjustable ESC timing with motor can timing in Stock on any given Sunday so we can all have some fun and get the most out of our driving. Batteries are whatever you brought with you, but preferably hardcase with LIPO bag as said before.

So turn up with that sort of gear and youll be fine in Stock.

Nope, that truck qualifies you for Pro2, SC trucks are a little different then buggies

Pro2 (2wd) runs 10.5 non boosted or 13.5 boosted or the RTR Reedy 3300kvh motor that comes in ALOT of RTR SC10's
Pro4 (4wd) i believe is open (like mod) someone correct me if i am wrong

Tyres are open, but i would stay away from Ribs for the front of SC trucks

Again, for your first time, Novice is the place to learn how a race is run, run what you bring

On the hobbyking site, the Zippy Flightmax 5000 30c batteries are roar approved, but as Vig wrote, as longs as its 2S and hardcase you will have no probs at a club day

Just to clarify the clubs position on stock as there has a been a lot of information flying around lately that may be a little misleading:

1) Any hard case 2S battery is legal at Ryde, so if you want to use Hobby King batteries, like many of us, myself included, then go ahead (they do have a ROAR legal battery available in Aust and the whole business is owned by an Australian).

2) LiPo sacks are only mandatory if you don't use balance charge.

3) Any tyres are legal as long they are intended for the class i.e. no 1/8 tyres in SCT and no front ribs in SCT.

4) I am assuming Cloaked is talking about SCT so the esc rule is contained in the Ryde SCT rules here: http://www.sydneyrc.com/pdf/Sydney%2...%202012_V2.pdf , basically it is Pro2 = 10.5T with esc with no timing or a no timing profile must used with a suitable indicator or you can use 13.5T with any esc or esc profile. All motors must be 540 size. Pro4 = any motor winds, including 550, and any esc.

In buggy stock classes we stick STRICTLY with the AARCMC list above and this is applicable on any race day and we do carry out random checks through the year and now have a motor tester for any protests.

We do allow the Reedy 3300 in SCT RTR models, but it must include the RTR setup esc.

If you are racing this Sunday come and see me at race control or speak with Roman and we will tell you what you need to do. Just make sure you are at the track well before entries close.

If you are unsure of anything beforehand just check the website or PM me, Roman or Shane (RacerEd).
