Due to the rain and cold temperature forecast for tomorrow, Dale and I have decided not to spray the sugar water. If the rain stops and the track drys enough the diehard touring guys could still run.

I think the weather is going to cancel racing tonight. The weatherman says Thursday night is going to be OK. I am going out then to make up for the rain out.

Well here are the proposed WCICS Rules for F1.

WCICS 2014-2015 F1 Rules


Motor: 21.5 Brushless motor ROAR Approved
ESC: No ESC timing or boost. ESC must be on ROAR approved list
Battery: ROAR approved 2S Li-po hard case batteries only
Tires: Open Rubber F1 scale. 200mm cars must run narrow modern tires eg. F104 tires
Weight: Minimum weight 1050g
Bodies: F1 scale. Molded front/rear wings. No lexan wings
Width: 190mm max. 200mm cars may be run for this 2014-2015 season using narrow tires. This is not encouraged and may change for the 2015-2016 rules
Drive: 2-wheel rear drive cars only
Wheelbase: 270mm max
Minimum Ride Height: 4mm
Suspension: All suspensions allowed, including IFS suspensions. All front suspension mounting points must be located entirely within the body shell (no pan-car front suspension systems). Adjustable link front ends are OK as long as the inner mount point is located within the body.
Driving Aids: None allowed
Race Length: 5min



Future Ideas for discussion.(Probably not for this year)
3-Minute Qualifying
A 3-minute qualifying format is used and scored using a 5-fastest average lap seeding. The computer will average a driver’s 5-fastest laps to produce an average qualifying lap. The laps do not need to be consecutive. TQ for the event will earn an additional 2 points for the race day.
15-Minute Mains*

Race
15-minutes Main

Pit Stops
There is a mandatory 2-pit stops per race. A driver can pull in for your pit any time after completing one full lap and before the 10-minute mark. After the 10-minute mark, pit lane will closed. This means the last 5 minutes are pure racing and makes it easier for the announcer to call traffic for the lead cars.

Let me know how you want to vote.

Thank you for your time.
I tried them. There not too bad on the carpet. The Tamiya TCS fronts and rears or pits soft front and hard rear works way better.
