I think that will be posted tomorrow.

Billy Easton had the fastest Mod Sedan today. He was TQ, but worked on his car instead of running the main. LeMieux easily won the main, by almost a lap (.04 I think). You can view the results on www.liverc.com.

Tuesday nights racing will be on LiveRC as well.

I confirmed with Barry that he had some bad ideas for New Years eve, but no cops were involved.

Trackside has a special deal for the Novak race. I bought the GTb yesterday for $154.99 and the 13.5 motor for $74.99 (I think those are the correct prices). The 13.5's Novak provided to Trackside have a preintalled sintered magnet rotor (a $30 option or so), which makes it a fantastic deal.

Hey Doug:

Something is seriously screwed up with the results at LiveRC. The results are not lined up with the correct racer's name.

Doug,
Another thing I noticed in the results is that the fast lap column of the results is not always correct. I noticed in the lap break down there are several laps that were faster than the one listed as fast lap.

More bug fixing, less features. :-D

How about, I dunno, some way to leverage RSS to keep up what's going on at a race? Like, say, an RSS feed that gets populated with the results of each race (as an item) so we can just add the feed to our favorite reader and see updates as they're pushed out. Sometimes, the worst part about getting results is trying to navigate the pages where they're hosted, and then hoping they're in some kind of reasonable format that's easy to read. Not everybody uses the abomination called Internet Explorer, and some of us don't even use PC's. Some of the sites where results are hosted don't properly render in all browsers, especially when people use wonky PDF2HTML converters that were written in VB by child slaves in India.

RSS is easily parsed by anything that speaks XML, making it a convenient format for data manipulation. It wouldn't be hard at all to suck lap times into an RRD and create all kinds of pretty graphs with RRDtool to visualize changes in lap times and stuff.

After that... I wouldn't be surprised if RC Scoring Pro magically never counts any of your laps again.

That's a bug Doug just may not be able to figure out!

Oh, c'mon, talking to USB and serial devices isn't rocket science. :-) I only made that comment because the one above mine was talking about bugs with the way lap times are displayed online.

Judging by the length of Barry and Paul's antenna, are they using the new 2.4 Futaba system. I was waiting to see how they performed, have they noticed good performance with the first batch?

Brandon,

A lot of people are using the 2.4 setup from Futaba. I know that Larry, Freddy, Kris P, Cuffs, and myself are all using it with absolutely no problems at all. It's nice to have true HRS as well.

Paul Lemiuex, Chicky, and a few other Futaba drivers all run the 2.4. I don't believe anyone reported any trouble. I'm sure we'd see it on RCTech somewhere.

Well I did have some problems. I posted this in the Futaba 2.4 thread;

"I just retuned home from S&N Trackside New years day Red Eye race where I experienced problems with my two week old Futaba 2.4G radio system. I had received the 2.4g module and receiver from Mr. MasterCard for X-mass. I installed the system into my 3pk last week Tuesday Dec 26. The install was painless and my HB Cyclone was quickly back on the track. I experienced flawless operation on Dec 26, Dec31, and three batteries of practice and qualifying today. However, at the start of the second qualifier today the radio system let me down. As I first turned the car on it was lazy to respond. Then the car experienced what was like a glitch, and took off uncontrolled. Soon it came to a rest, but I was unable to run my second qualifier.

I returned to my pit and started looking for possible problems. I removed the batteries and held them in my hand. The problem still exited. I then removed the receiver and move the negative battery wire way from the antenna mount. Holding the receiver off the chassis the problem was gone. I reinstalled the receiver to the car hoping for the best in the third qualifier. Sadly, the radio had other ideas. During the third race the car lost complete power twice. The first time power returned and I continued driving. The second time I pulled the car in.

Has any one else had a problem like this? What was the fix? What are the different channels for on the module? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your help."
I donít have this fully resolved yet. Iím going to try reinstalling the receiver and module and re-link the two and try it again. If that doesnít work, we'll I donít know. If there is a Futaba rep at the Novak Race, please seek me out via the Trackside staff to help. Thanks.

Snowy.
