Haha....had a great day. Thanks to Roman and Reedy for running race control, the day ran smoothly. Had some great racing, particularly in 4wd mod. Look forward to racing with you all again soon

Neither of those options are race legal for Truck. You need a ROAR or BRCA approved 10.5 motor and a ROAR/AARCMCC/BRCA approved non-timing ESC. Also if you want to race outside of Ryde you will need ROAR approved batteries, many people at Ryde use the Turnigy Nanotechs with good results and excellent prices. Check these links for options:

The rules for truck were changed by a vote by AARCMCC members last year to allow SCT to become an official class and, for whatever reason, the majority of clubs chose to keep both as 10.5 non-timing classes. You can run a mod truck at Ryde but you will most likely be running it alone because the people who do run in what is a very small class anyway tend to run 10.5. It's up to you.

Track was nice and smooth, didn't hear one person complaining about anything

Except the "personal best" that our computer decided to keep yelling out, but i'm sure that is just a simple option in alycat

Other then the new alycat adding -1's instead of -0's to the end of peoples transponders, the new laptop and version of Alycat did ok, nice and clear over the PA which is nice

Let's hope our new model is the same, as the one we used on the weekend goes to the backup lappy.

Can't wait to get back into R/C once my holiday is paid for an over, i think it's time to bring back the Team Associated / Reedy combo that i did so well in stock with

That all depends on your skill level, we prefer that new drivers start off in Novice so we can assess where they should be. Novice should use a Stock set-up, see links above for ESC and motor lists, or a very turned down mod motor set-up, which you can do through EPA setting on your radio. This has been the club's policy for many years.

In saying that, we had a massive turn out on the weekend but 0 novice, so we may have to just tack you onto the smallest field

Novice is open to any car / motor, its based around the driver being, well... a "novice" or new to RC racing. If after one or two races we can see that you can handle your car well in a crowd, then we will race for slips.... i mean, move you into a racing class
