If you've seen Jeff's writing, you wouldn't be saying that.

I hope to race the series this year, I just had a few questions.

Do you need to pre-register to be part of the series?

Is the fee to race the normal fee of the track hosting the event?

Thanks for any responces,

Jeff

1. Nope, just come out and sign up at the track at the events you attend!
2. Yes, whatever the normal fee is will be the race fee.
3. Not quite sure which model the V200 is, all I know is I can't afford it .

Hope that helps hope you can make it out this Season it'll be fun!

"Tekin v200" refers to the version of software that is allowed for the Tekin RS and RS Pro ESCs. Any software versions over 200 (like v203) are not allowed.

Jeff & bvalistic, happy to hear you'll be joining us this series.

The RCGT Showdown is a free series. All you pay is your normal club racing fees. No need to pre-reg. Just sign up on the day of the race.

We still have number panels leftover from Series 1, courtesy of HPI Racing. We'll distribute them to the RCGT Showdown participants at the warm up races. There should be enough for everyone... maybe.
