I've been using a similar app for a few years. Its great. You put in your fdr, wheel diameter, motor kv and battery voltage and it will calculate your potential top speed.

Hi everyone.

Here's a couple of videos from the 28th of April that I didn't get around to uploading.
I've changed the credits ending to be more informative of our club, let me know what you think, and any suggestions you may have.
Also, if you race 2 or more classes on the night, you only pay for your first class, which means the other classes are free, this is a good way of maximising your racing on the night.

First video is a compilation video, hope you all enjoy it, and thanks for watching.

Next video is the F1 final from the 28th April.

Cheers
Rob.

They do online shopping, and also have a shop at Castle Hill which is not that far away from the CH showground.

It was great to see everyone again on Friday night, with a few people making a return to racing on the night, which was good to see too.
A different racing format is being tried for a while, after a members poll returned favorable results towards it.
Race results for the night can be found Here

There was some close, and very fast paced racing on the night, especially in F1 & 21.5, not saying that the same doesn't apply to the racing in all the other classes though.
I managed to capture some great footage of the racing last night, and will try and have it all uploaded as soon as I can.

With our next race night being on the 2nd Friday of the month, everyone knows what means???
That's right, it's time to dig out those "Micro Monsters" and unleash them onto the track for some fun & chaotic racing for "Mini Mania" on the 9th of June.

And seeing how you only pay for your first class entry on the night, those wishing to race their usual class, plus their "mini beasts" (or more classes),only have to pay for one class, which is great value!

Take care, stay safe, and looking forward to seeing you all again next Friday night.

Rob.

Apologies for taking so long to get these up, have been battling hardware-software issues. (basically software not co operating with hardware, hopefully fixed now).

First video is of the 2nd leg Stock final on the 2nd June 2017.
Hope you enjoy it, and thanks for watching.

Next video is of the 2nd leg Modified final on the 2nd June 2017.
Hope you enjoy it, and thanks for watching.

Also as a reminder, we are holding a race night this coming Friday (16th June).
Track will be open for practice around 5pm, and racing will commence at 7pm.
If you race 2 classes (or more if you're that dedicated), you only pay for your first class, all the other classes are free - great value racing for your coin.
All classes get 2 qualifying heats, and 2 finals.

Regards.
