Ok. The Easter holidays have offically started. So there's no excuse not to get down to the shed and sort your gear out for tomorrow.

Remeber, SMA will be open all day tomorrow (Easter Friday) with the track opening at 10.00am (and closing late).

Timing will be on and so far the weather is looking to be on our side.

Admission will be $10.00.

Look forward to seeing you there.

Tony.

Hey
Pretty new to RC outright
But I was wondering if there is any limitation to what motors that can be run besides what turns they are?
(eg roar approved or not)

As i'm just looking at a few motors at the moment as my rc car is currently only a brushed one which im upgrading to brushless atm

Also wondering about what bodies most people are running as well as whether there are any restrictions what bodies are run?

Last question 190mm bodies or 200mm or is that just more based on what chassis one is using?

Thank you

Hi Rob,
Electric onroad is split into three main classes, which use the same chassis and bodies but different turn motors. 21.5t is the entry point, with open modified being the fastest (4.5t/5.0t motors). There are also two other classes (VTA and GT) which use the same chassis, but different bodies and motors as well. GT uses a locked timing 17.5t and sportscar bodies, whilst VTA is muscle car bodies.. but can't for the life of me remember what motor it is! I think 21.5t.

For your situation, I would look to a 21.5t motor, and any 190mm body. Don't worry too much about having the most whiz bang motor, even in 21.5t practise is key to quick lappery. The club will be more than happy to accommodate you coming along and having a crack, gotta start somewhere!

Ok thanks as i was looking at getting the Protoform Camero Z/28 body to go on my car and ill head down to a hobby shop in the next few days to see what motors are available

Also what gearing would be preferable to go with a 21.5 Turn motor?

Rob
