Just realised that when you upload pics the upload tool automatically compressees them, cool.

Just came across this website for geering motors, it's for Novaks but should be a good starting point

Ryde Friday arvo sounds good too.
Hey this is looking like the "Boys Club", r girls allowed in

From Meeting - lots of new members welcomed to our club
Advised council that we are ready to start Saturday racing and will be bringing in cars
Agreed not to use the plastic jumps until end of series and no track alterations until end of series.
Looked at Traxxas Slash proposal for rules - underway and should be out on Saturday next
Race format for remainder of series to be 4 x 2 or 4 x 1 depending on entry numbers, where 2 finals best 1 of the 2.
Vests and 1 gate open are working well, keep it going
Need Lights and leads for this Saturday - GB and IT to organise
Sign to stop parking across chain gate by park users in case of emergency
Thats about it, and not typo errors

Racing will be on Saturday afternoon, 14 March, be there around 2.00pm for a 3.00pm start, weather permitting and cars will be allowed into the grounds, hoorah!!! it's only taken 10 months. Please remember there is a 4kph speed limit, anyone abusing this will cause the club to lose car access permission for ever.

Default Novak

Thought I would share my news!!!

Novak have replaced my faulty ESC for the brushless. Rather impressed, though they might have said no, given it happened last year.

Suggest GB sends his back because they stated mine suffered Multiple Mosfets failure.

Thanks for the info Jen.


Wow, it's great to hear that Novak replaced your ESC.
I hope they will do the same for Gary.

So if it's 2 finals one will be dropped ?
The meeting you had on the 1st of March had 2 finals but both counted towards the final placings.
I guess we have to make sure the computer is set to drop the worst final in the future.

Sorry I couldn't make it Jen, as per usual I was up in Newcastle. Did anybody else apart from Roman manage to turn up?

Just to get it straight do you mean that there will be 4 heats and 2 finals if there is time and if we are out of time then it will be 4 heats and 1 final and it is the fastest time of the finals that wins the day?

Nick

Good to see that a junior from Ryde, Lucas Baldacchino is entering the Club Challenge at St.Ives in 4wd stock. . . go the Losi xxx-4.

The prize for best placed junior is a very good idea, well done to Ari and Greg Bakla and the Northern Beaches Hobby Centre.

GB was there

Yes you got it. GB was told that drivers liked our format and to keep it this way because the racing was great.

Yes we will drop one, in other words the computer will look at both scores, award points from 10 to 0 and then drop the worst result, giving you a score of 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5,4,3,2,1, depending on how many in the final. Yes we just need to set 2 finals and tell it to drop 1, then all should be good.

The results of 1 March did infact have both final showing, but when I did the pointscore, I did as mentioned above and your best result was used to give you points. (I did it manually).
