Hola, if you're referring to the video, my car is the blue ping pong ball that was bouncing off curbs/cars. Also, you may have taken a picture of my car/pit and already posted it in the Evo3 forum...it's the one titled "pic022" or something like that, it's the one with the promatch battery case and ott light. The unknown evo that's sitting on top of blue container is none other than "Blow for Blow John Houda"

I believe it is legal in GT1 only.

Right on! Thanks Izzy, That's some good stuff. It's the perfect video for me, Happens to be watching the battle when I have the brain fart.

I'm pretty sure BL is legal for GT1.

Rod- Oh well..... defend the title get and get a matching bowl! But in a year, you'll be able to win Open I'm sure, so you'll still have match set of bowls.

My TCS packet states any ROAR approved motor (that means stock or mod) for GT1- don't think BL is approved by ROAR.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

ah yes ROAR rules, don't forget Tamiya can & will change those rules at their discretion

FMW: would you like to clarify this ?

More info about the Reedy Race UK.

Friday practice is giving the World's best drivers a chance to tame the super fast Halifax circuit.

The great British weather greeted the drivers at the start of the day, with a very wet track bringing conditions that were a new experience for many of our International guests. While some chose to use the conditions to try their wet weather setups and the PitShimizu tyres, the majority decided to wait a while, and within a couple of hours the track was drying fast. Out came the pre-built Take Off tyres and it was time to see how they would cope with the Halifax tarmac.

The Halifax circuit always looks superb, but for this event the home club really have done a spectacular job in preparing the track for the event. With banners all round the outside and the infield, the appearance truly matched the needs of such a prestigious event.

In the Invitational class, World Champion Surikarn was immediately on the quick pace and very fast down the back straight with his latest Tamiya shaft-drive car. Craig Drescher was also quick with his Reedy powered Associated TC3, carrying the speed very nicely round the sweeping bends. David Spashett had the set-up right and could lap consistently for a full five minutes. The Corally team also improved throughout the day. Traction from the Take Off tyres proved to be excellent, with some cars even traction rolling in the afternoon sunshine. The main challenge so far has been how to balance the horsepower from the motor with a need to keep the performance going for the full race distance.

Ben Cosgrove's XRAY was fast in the electric open class, as was Ian Whittingham with his TC3. Olly Jefferies also had the speed, but was not quite as consistent. The nitro drivers took longer to find the right setups, with Darren Johnson looking fast with his Yokomo, as was Marc Neale's Picco powered Nitro TC3. Chris Deakin (Radio Race Car editor) was giving the new Kyosho Vone S a run, using Sirio power.

Friday afternoon brought practice in heat order; a chance to get used to the other drivers in the heat. Practice concludes this evening with a couple of hours of open practice.

Default Brushless for GT1

I personally spoke with Fred M. concerning brushless and it is Legal for GT1. I personally was using one which I thought was too overpowered (Lehner motor). I switch to a Tamiya 11turn on my Final (C main, but did win it)
