Yes, Plaids are a purple compound tire with the outer sidewall being a different compound (orange).

Default Tires...

I was wrong in what i said.. I call jaco tires diff then what they actually are.. They are double pink . and they are available. I just never ran them before becuase they were so soft. Also TRC and jaco make many type of variation of these tires and as long as either one of them sell them you are ok under this rule..

Sorry for the confusion.. I was just not aware of the coding that jack used versus what we call them as drivers . We need to work on that more.. . Call it old school.. LOL

Default Variation... meaning sorry..

I should have clarified in what i meant. Variation of the tires meaning durometer readings were like this , i might run a 30 purple instead of a 40 on the rear...

That rule doesnt make sense. The milling that a lot of guys do is not available commercially, does that mean its illegal? And if I mount my own tires from foam donuts, and make a double pink/orange combo, is that illegal?

Even if those tires were not commercially available, you could buy the donuts and mount them yourself.

Just a thought.

I think touring is going to fast as it is now. I hope they do something about that soon for interest of the hobby...

We have try 4 cells and it looks way to slow with a 10 turn. What I would like to see is an 12-turn limit like BRCA has. This way you can slow the cars down with out have to by all new stuff. I Think it need to be in all the mod classes from Off road to 1/12th.

PS. Good to have you here Mike.

Sounds like a good idea to me! I never went below an 11 turn in my Pro-10, it was just about as fast as I could handle. Mod Pro-10 is something else. IMO 12 turn is a good rule and I haven't noticed many compliants about it in British championships.

The BRCA 12 turn limit isnt all that great. It just means that we have to gear the crap out of them to get any speed and destroy the motor in the proccess. I would much prefer a 10 turn limit, go about the same speed but without the need to massivly overgear the motors.

Yeah, I've seen some of the gear ratios people are using! But wouldn't the top drivers do the same with a 10 turn motor limit? I haven't raced in the BTCC but I would imagine that the situation would be worse with a lower/no motor limit. I don't know how this motor/battery warfare is going to end.

yeah, i have to agree people will probably do the same as with the 12 turns, the people who can afford a new motor every 3 or 4 meetings still will do but i deffinatly can't!

Well, I finally got around to adding the last batch of pictures from the event to the page, as well as the final results for the lower mains and everything else. So the pages are officially (finally) done.

Thanks for sticking with R/C Tech for the coverage, and we'll be sure to do it again as soon as possible!
