Default SMA Scruteneering

Originally posted by hav_lova
I like the idea of scruteneering and possibly in the future running a controled fuel? but i say lets have the drop your worst round it is a good idea due to nitro cars being tempermental (big word....) but then again i wont have to drop last week there was no one there recording all results and times
At this early stage implementing the rules and regulations will discourage new drivers to the sport.

However, if the club champ is determine from a particular class i.e. Stock A this class will be subject to scruteneering. The lap timing program we use should already have a point score system (BK will let us know if I'm wrong).

The point score system will be discussed next race meet (3rd of April) and details will be posted there after.

As mention, SMA is focused on making the sport fun and affordable so please don't let us fall into the trap of having the sport esculate in cost for a $3.00 trophy . . .

A question that i am asking other clubs and now you guys is that is SMA putting up a team for the Challenge Cup this year. I know you guys are just starting out and its good to see all new faces showing up to race. But as your officals have approached me about holding a round not this year but maybe next year it would be good expericence to the club to see these events run. This also gives you guys an insite into scruteneering for your own club rounds.

It will only be for a couple of hours or so in the morning. I will only be running my F1 car and my little RC18t! My nitro car is no where near ready yet! Say between 9:30 - 12:00ish.
