still deciding on FWD final rules Franko.

It was brought up that fwd may be closer matched to stock cars than Scale Spec/ USGT so there is some consideration there.

Default 17.5 -21.5

Outdoor racing is always fun.
Last year we had a blast.
This year it's crazy with Covid19 .
The safety for everyone is the biggest concern for all.
You just never know who or when you can or will get it.
RRR is doing what they can to have racing back and not rush into things.

Let's do some discussion on FWD.
FWD is catching on as another fun class.
Indoor it barely lifted off but more people showed more interest.until the season cut short.
As for weight, OVA did mention no weight limits.which ROAR currently have.
We all want to have fun and close racing why not have a set weight.?
It's only fair and close racing. Call it 1350 instead 1380.
Motor I vote 21.5. anything more you are just doing burnouts.

Motor for Stock touring. Outdoor track is bigger than indoor.
I vote for 17.5 . It's always been competitive and close racing.
Why change it as it worked well last year.

Motor for Scale Spec.
I vote 21.5 . Same as last year.
We all have these motors. Why buy another motor if you don't have to.

Default Spec Motors for TC Stock and FF

We discussed at OGR how likely FF will turn into 21.5 this upcoming indoor season such that if FF does not have enough turnout is still legal to run in scale spec, lets get it set that way for RRR too.
TC Stock Blinky: The votes received since March have 17.5 clearly ahead, this will be the spec for TC stock. There is nothing stopping racers from using 21.5 in this class, but there will not be a separate heat.

Let's see how it goes.

Default RRR Start Up and Dates

Okay, here's the announcement everyone was waiting for!

We require all racers, family, attendees present to follow and abide by the guidelines and rules. Failure to do so may result in bylaw fines, and at worst, shut down of the club and race venue.

June 27th is our trial run. It is a test and tune day TO TEST SOCIAL DISTANCING LOGISTICS AND TRACK SETUP / TEARDOWN with new pieces.
July 11, 25 are to be scheduled Club Races.
We are still discussing whether or not we will host a trophy race this summer.
BRING GLOVES FOR SETUP AND TEARDOWN.

If you are attending on June 27th it is expected for you to be there for morning setup and evening teardown, and follow all protocols in the posted Return to Sport plan.

There is a lot behind the scenes happening for this to come together. New track pieces are made, similar to last year's "soft bend corners" to help round the sweepers, etc. A lot of club members have stepped up to offer assistance and help in the last few weeks and we really appreciate it and it shows how committed we all are for this to happen. We will have a sanitizing station for hand cleaning throughout the day. Setup and teardown helpers must use gloves.

We have been discussing and debating on what needs to be posted so that all attendees are aware on how to keep clean, and socially distant.
There will be changes with how the race day is run: smaller heats (6-8 max), as drivers stand is maximum 4 people, with bring your own step stools/ladders to add 6ft past the next driver.
Canopies and pit spaces will be 1 person only. Canopies will no longer be touching, and will be spaced out as well. Expect to bring your own tents, tables and chairs as sharing will be breaking the recommended 6ft distancing. Follow instructions in red for further details.

1. READ THE ATTACHED PDF FOR RRR RETURN TO SPORT
2. PRINT, FILL OUT, AND BRING THE PARTICIPATION AGREEMENT
3. PRINT, FILL OUT AND BRING THE LIABILITY WAIVER


WITHOUT THE ABOVE, YOU WILL NOT BE PERMITTED ON TRACK, OR IN THE PITS. Only need to submit documents once for the remainder of the 2020 season.

I'm very happy to be able to race again. Please help us stay racing by following the guidelines. I'll be the guy stressing out over social distancing, sanitizing and wearing a mask while Chuck laughs at me. -John

Hey Chrisman
Just let you know that the last year 2019 Summer Sizzler in Seattle RC Club
The FWD ran with the Scale Spec and Donny Bank ran his T4F and finished third over all and Second places was Jesses Anderson I think his was the MI7 and Brett Sisley TC3 won first places
Donny was just 10 sec slower compare Brett fastest 6 minutes race ..The FWD class is no min weight with 21.5
1350 for fwd with 17.5 might work.

That's why I'm suggesting 21.5 boosted, this will be good for those that like to buy new 17.5 motor, they will not have too as we all have lots of 21.5 motors by now from the winter.

As we never ran 21.5 boosted, I wonder how fast it can go, I'll try that at the opening run

I loved the boosted back in the days.it was call the super stock
Only problem is that I found a lot of racer struggle knowing how to set the boost maximum power on the track

Hey Revolution, et al:

I have a 1:8 serpent 988e and would like to join in. Which brushless motor/ESC/cell count would you consider to be on par with the .21 nitros?

hard to say really, the torque curve is so different.

Have you been to RRR before? Our 1/8 Open Class is only for advanced drivers at the moment.
