No really where do you buy a motor any brand canít find them any where I would run an MVP if I had to.
A brood has been found in California £26 Inc shipping still cheaper than our shops but why the hell do we have to go to the trouble of that I want to buy a Motor from my local model shop. I wish I had brought a few when I had the opportunity always in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Please get some in soon I have 2 thunder tuned ones but they not on the list. Jolly have you got any stickers? lol

modeltech have some c2's but not many .

Team almighty have the atlas

Demon has nothing

team scream has ???? just check ebay...lol

BRM has corally black

think thats it until microtech are fully running

I think the rules should be altered but think we need to come up with suggestions and how to implement them.

trfracer...wat do you care you race modified...nice hat!!!!!
but on a serious note......a shorter stack will rev faster and be noticable....the brca will pull the motor to bits to check it....they did it last year with the epic outlaw motors........remember with demon quads being on list, off list as mentioned before....

This is a message for any BRCA official : can we change wording on the 19T rules to 9T spec class ? It's only one letter ditch, will save some money in ink when printing the circuit chatter and rule book.

19T is so SLOOOOOW outdoors and just about decent indoors Ok I'm going out. I'm going out now anyway

I dont have a clue as to the intricacies of whats inside a stock motor, or what makes one better than another. But I do know that as a result of the BRCA rules, stock motors are all but extinct, tell me, would the CO27 or Integy Z-Zone really be that much better and give racers such a huge advantage, or for that matter a motor that could be tweeked to such a degree as to make it unfair to use.

I thought this hobby was supposed to be fun but to many rules and regulations will eventually take 'THE FUN' out of the hobby, I think the BRCA needs to look quite hard and try and build in some common sense with their rules before it's too late. the top racers will always be around, well untill their past it but the kids who are coming through will get pissed off and not bother because it's too much like hard work fighting the rule book, so where will that leave in the short term future?

Sod it, I'm just gonna run whatever I can get and sod the rules, after all, I'm a below average club racer who wants to go out and enjoy himself.

If you are racing at Nationals, you must be taking this 'toy car' stuff bloody serious, as it costs a small fotune with travelling, gear etc... so I would want to have a decent set of rules in place. If I was running at club level, then personaly I wouldn't care about the motors or cells. Maybe some of you lot take your 'club' racing to seriously to, I dunno.

Tis no point wagging the finger at the BRCA, they merely clarified an already set rule, maybe a few latters off to Trinity might help matters along.... whats to bet that Trinity will all of a sudden 'release' a legal motor and because of the shortage of supply, they will almost garauntee to sell out of the first batch...

but cookie, why will the uk make trinity change their motor?

uk market small, us market big, if their motor is good, better than monster they are not going to want to change it just for us with the added risk the motor might not be as good.

At my club i have suggested a relaxed 27t ruling, if the manurfacturer says it is a 27t and it looks like a 27t (i.e. i like the paper thing and the tapered axle), then it is a 27t. If people wanna cheat, the rule is open enough for them to do so, but at my club that means your likely to get punted when your lapping

Jake, the US market MAY be large, but the majority of it is non-RAOR run events, thats why when you look at the ROAR homologation lists, there isn't that much on there, as most companies don't see the point....

That is THE problem we have in 27t only ONE company making a fast motor - having all your eggs in one basket! One company being so dominant is not a good thing at least we have a choice in 19t.

Having just trawled Racechat - apparently Helger are expecting a shipment of 'legal' motors this week (monster?).
Interesting idea was classes by number of cells instead of motor winds - sounds interesting (less aggro over motors).

I have posted a copy of the following on Paul Worsley's behalf.

Quote:
Dear Mr. Witt,

It is my understanding that we live in a world of free speech, and therefore individuals are allowed to voice/write their opinions, (slander excepted).
Equally, there is no requirement for anyone to join such debates if they do not wish to.

The BRCA Electric Board uses the official BRCA website to convey information and not spurious 'chat rooms'.
Therefore the (EB) has no intension of fuelling the fire that you have decided to start.
Certainly, we would not enter into reasoning with 'faceless' persons that do not identify themselves.

Having read some of the comments on the site you refer to, It is clear that many involved do not have the basic understanding of what has been required in the rules for 27T motors for many years.

As usual, the (EB) will answer (using normal English language), any queries that we receive in our usual prompt manner.

Best regards,

Paul Worsley. (Secretary, BRCA Electric Board).
BRCA officials are there to help the BRCA members.
