WCRC---OCRC--the TQ In Chino--Charlie Barnes' series in HB --Corona and San Gabriel with Speedtech!! The Tamiya facility in Aliso Niguel---it's a great time to help support on-road---so

Just a thought, and I am sure i will get jumped on for this. But wouldn't the easiest way to curb the advantage of the Tekin speed control is to change the layout of the track?

That's assuming the guys with the Tekin won't adjust the the new layout? the tekin is a lot faster in both punch out of the corner and straight away...

This class gives people a chance to race in a class that won't be changing technology for a long time.

I've said this many times myself but its doubtful that would ever happen. Take away all the straights and make it a very tight track and the Tekin will have no advantage at all. However, like I said before, racers don't like that because its not fast.

There's still a difference, it just isn't as noticeable without a long straight. As long as there's enough traction you can gear super low with the Tekin stuff and have crazy rip without sacrificing what top speed you do need on such a layout.

But that's neither here nor there as far as this thread is concerned.

Hey Joshua, good to see you posting. Hey Roger, just do as I me and heed to the wise. The Tekin is just wwwaaayyyy more powerful than anything else out there and guys buy it for a reason. We can now start settleling differances on the track.

Paco's getting a Tekin!

BTW for anyone looking for a cheap XRay roller to run this new Novak class, I can make you a special WCRC package deal.
