Default 20 Minute Electric Main Li-Po Truck Class

Since ROAR has added this new great class to it's line up, I thought I would start a new thread about it and keep everyone updated on the Electric Pro Truck races in the ECNS also.

Is there any track in Virginia or Maryland running this class? I'd love to race against some local guys.

Thumbs up

ECNS Race #3 at the Proving Grounds Raceway in Sumter, SC Race Report

Great day for racing and a hard fought "B" main with Timothy Habiuk and Karl Kobernus getting the 2 bump up spots to fill the 12 truck "A" main that Dereck Martin's Novak GTB 5.5 powered T-4 earned the top TQ spot.



A close start with Dereck Martin leading the first lap followed closely by Dennis Allison and a hard charging Barry Petit who took the lead on lap 2 and 3 until he broke a shock giving the lead to Doug Tudor on lap 4 and 5.







Dereck Martin took the lead on lap 6 leaving a fierce battle between Doug Tudor and Dennis Allison that was not decided until the final lap with Dereck Martin taking the win, Doug Tudor 2nd and Dennis Allison finishing 3rd!


Congratulations to all the Pro Truck Racer that attended and now with ROAR adding our class it looks like it is going to get big nationwide!

Pos Name Laps Time
1 Dereck Martin 31 20:35.808
2 Doug Tudor 29 20:05.134
3 Dennis Allison 29 20:07.808
4 Monti Pope 28 20:24.606
5 Ray Zander 27 20:28.712
6 Brian Abbott 26 20:38.419
7 Victor DiGiuseppi 24 20:39.048
8 Tim Hepler 23 17:30.797
9 Timothy Habiuk 21 20:13.226
10 Robert Davis 20 20:12.915
11 Barry Petit 12 12:48.796
12 Karl Kobernus 2 1:37.623

Novak GTBs with 5.5 brushless motors dominated the top 3 spots!

See everybody at Rodslingers Raceway in Griffin, GA on June 2nd for Round 4 of the ECNS!

Summer Nitrofest is at the Farm Raceway on June 8th thru 10th and the ROAR Off-Road Electric Nationals are in Albuquerque, NM on June 14th thru 18th!

The ECNS round 5 race is at the Tiltyard Raceway in Dayton, VA on July 14th with the Pro trucks visiting there.

Registration should be open sometime this week for that race and it will sell out fast. You have to enter on line here: http://www.rcraceregistration.com/index.asp

Sounds Great! I've been meaning to check out homer's track, and making the trip that weekend will serve two purposes! Thanks for the heads up. I'll watch the link and register when its available.

Pro Truck- Thanks for the update. What a fun race weekend. I had a blast. What a great class and awesome series (ECNS). Looking forward to the Yard... "Have you been Tilted"...

Looks like Roar is opening the door for BL/Li-Po Pro Truck racing. That is great. I am glad this type of class is growing and being a demo class at the Roar Off Road Electric Nats.

20 Minute Electric Mains!!!!!!!

Roadtrip!

I would say ride with me, but I don't think you want to stay away from home for 2 weeks in a big truck.

Would it be possible to get car configs for the top 3 above? Car/Speedo/Engine/Battery/Servo would be great Thanks

The t4 and the mf2 both work great. The novak gtb 5.5 seems to be the most popular motor thus far. Any 8k mah 7.4 volt battery with at least a 10c rating will work for a battery. The charger of choice is the astroflight 109. The cheapest packs that work well are probly truerc.com 8k mah 10c 7.4 volt packs.

Dennis Allison bought 2 TrueRC 8000s for E-Revo and they were too wide to fit in the battery tray of a T-4 or Doug Tudor's Losi MF1. You could make it fit with alot of force that would damage the cells, so not recommended. Stick with the MaxAmps or the Thunder Power and I hope to be marketing for a new company a 8000 mah li-po for less than $100...Stay tuned!

I have 2 Astro Flight 109s and 1 Duratrax ICE along with a brand new Thunder Power TP 1010C charger with a data link to the balancer that I really like to get those batteries perfect! It is kinda pricey at $199.

And dont forget the 2oz of weight for the light battery... Lol

And we also have around 2oz extra stashed on the truck for setup.

I have always just skimmed the side of the battery slot when ever I needed to make a little more room.

Yes, I did try and fit the Truc RC 8000 Li-Po into my MF1 and it does not fit. My battery box is fairly shaved down on both sides and it still wouldn't fit. I was hoping to give these cells a try. My servo is a Futaba 9451. I will be adding some weight to my truck too to see if it can make it any better.
