Cheers,ian
Hi Ian,
It will be good to see you again.
If you are running no ESC boost I would go for around 7.5 to 8.0 FDR.
If the spur gear is a 87 tooth , then a 29 tooth pinion.
As SCT Pro2 drivers running a 13.5 can use ESC boost and timing, you can gear for a higher FDR to compensate for this.

The track copped a bit of wear, on top of the obvious, we will need to nail down the ag piping in a few sections next weekend. i.e.: we might need to bring a few extra pegs as I couldn't find the ones that had been knocked out. I will be there to put in some hard labour for sure.
Good on ya Dave.

If anyone knows of an alternative piping we can use that would last longer on the track then let me know.
This applies to astro turf for the infield as well.
We will all need to start thinking about preparing the track now for the State Titles in September.

.
The piping they use at St Ives is quite nice, but/and I find it a bit harder to drive over it though (when I've got off track), so the little patches of astro turf to soften the edge is quite useful.

Chris,

Can you send me a photo or spec or even a brand name on this stuff? I am also looking into alternatives at the moment and I'm not sure if this is the same material. The one I'm trying to get is grain handling pipe.

We use this for some sections at the LRRCC.. Also I've used it to line a massive private Rc track on the north coast... Maybe approaching the Ryde council may be a good option... I can't see them kicking in but the club may be able to take advantage of the council's buying power....

Hi I was looking at the trucks that were going round on the race day last week. What is the best truck for ryde. I sore some team sc10 and some losi 10te going round. So what is the best truck for racing in general and the best for ryde.
I seem to have more fun on Sundays when there are no rules to follow but to,go round in the same way.

the 2WD RTR SC10 comes with everything you need, if it has the Reedy 3300kvh motor in it, you will drop straight into Novice / Pro2 without having to buy anything else (other then batts and charger)

I can't comment on a suitable truck for racing, but for fun, I love the Losi SCTE. On Sunday afternoon it would have been me (blue & white), friend (fluoro yellow with Novak 4.5 system), and another friend (fluro orange with 4600KV).

The 4WD means you get hung up on the ag-pipe a bit less, hoping/waiting for someone to bump you to get some traction.

SCTE is also tough as nails with all of my poor driving, full speed head-ons into the poles, cartwheeling, bad jump landings (especially when the crossover was there). The only thing I have really replaced due to damage is a bent A-arm.

PM me your details we'll see what we can do.

Once again, if you're racing, you might want to keep in mind which class would be enjoyable for you, as I am not sure which class this would be in.

Also I have noticed the feel is very different between mine and the other SCTEs, sometimes it was due to the motor (a world of difference when I changed from sensorless to sensored), sometimes from EXPO settings (I like my steering quite sensitive), and now the upgraded tyres. Having said this, a lot of people say this truck can win races straight out of the box without any setup changes - it's then up to the driver. And I'd be the first to say that I'm the limiting factor.

Default Weekend track work

OK the roller is booked for the weekend and the weather is looking ok for at least Saturday and possibly Sunday, so we are going to have to play it by ear and see how the weather plays out. But a bit of rain on Sunday wouldn't be a bad thing as the track will be pretty dry by Saturday if there isn't any more rain.

So anybody who is interested in helping out just keep an eye on here and I'll keep you posted.
