Get those entries in so the club can have all the computer work done before the day and organise the right amount of food for everyone!

Cheers

my son and i will join and race our Nexx10 and Hyper10sc if our removal arrives in time, if not we will come and watch anyway. I do have one question tho about the rules because i cant get the SCT rules link to work on the site, what size lipo's are used?? We only use 2S and are hoping that is what you guys use as well, we saw the track the other day and figured you probably use them too.....

There are plenty of people to explain on the day. Everyone is friendly and happy to help. Some of the details are on the entry form, with the start times etc...

Basically, there are 3 rounds of qualifying and 3 finals. So 6 races all up for each class. So in your case 6 races of 2wd and 6 races of 4wd.

Within a round all classes run 10 cars max. So the more entries a class has the more heats/races in that round.

There will be a printed sheet with all races, race numbers and name of drivers to refer to. This is next to what's called "race control", which is easy to find and usually on the track.

Usually it's between 40 minutes to an hour between rounds. So you just need to keep on top of battery charging.

You race and then have to marshal the following race, to pick up any cars that crash onto their roofs or are stuck in any way.

What I wrote seems complicated, but it's very easy to pick up.

Hi Matt

Hopefully all will arrive in time. If not, there's plenty of competitive SCT racing to be had all year long till the next one.

I'm sure all in 4wd SCT use 2S as a minimum. The limit has been raised past 6000 capacity. So as long as its hard case lipo you should be right. Although lipos may have to be ROAR approved. (Can someone from the club committee clarify this please.)

Cheers
Ant

Thanks for the reply Jim.

Just for interests sake, it may be the case for this year's SC Championship, but not necessarily all big events. Only if the event is AARCMCC sanctioned or being run to AARCMCC rules. In the last 4 years I have been to many big events (not states or nats) that have been happy for hard case only, no need for ROAR stickers. Which is why I asked for clarification.

The 2009 Ryde Open didn't even require a weight limit for the cars as it was an open event.

This is a non-sanctioned event on both days, SCTs aren't even a sanctioned class, so normal Ryde battery rules apply, that is: any hard case 2S LiPo will be accepted. If you still aren't sure check with me or Shane at race control on the day.

Jimmy, SCT will be run to Sydney RC SCT rules. So yes, they will be scrutinised.

I don't think AARMCC has officially ratified rules for SCT, which was the point of Nick's post.

Truth be told, racing at Ryde is very relaxed when it comes what battery people can and cannot use.

The TA06 pro chassis is only $235. Worth the hassle of having to order parts online in my view, but each to their own.
thanks Nic,

But where did you find those prices. i had trouble finding anything at the regular shops i buy from. $289 for the TA06 at best, TA05 still unseen.
