Hey Scotty,

Any clue what time Monday night registration will start? I have an exam at 6PM. Wondering if I should arrange to have someone sign me up.

The price did not go up much, but it is still $30.00 (and $20.00) more than it needs to be.
rick what you complaining about. even with the brushed handout there is a greater ability to cheat.

cranked timing, replacing magnets, drilling the arm, bearings instead of bushings... did I miss anything EA?

atleast I don't have to hone the bushings, polish the shaft and align the brushhoods with brushless, cut the comm, zap the magnets and I don't have to buy $10 a set XXX brushes every round. my motor building skills, lacking as it is, are are going to be less of a concern to my ability to compete.


and so I get home and sell the motor for 40 bucks to a local that is looking to get another brushless motor cus he blew his up and make a proffit. because if I get another CO27 I'm going to have to start my own motor building business to get rid of them.

I am not syaing the handout should be brushed. I am saying there is no need for a handout, period. We will just have to see how it all works out.

I will try to answer everyones questions.

BLACKSTOCK: Thanks very much. Glad you feel the same. Props go to Protoform and Parma for getting together on this. We do have a method and plan for teching the bodies.

1/12TH SCALE BODIES WILL REMAIN AS THEY HAVE BEEN FOR MANY YEARS. NO RESTRICTIONS ON THESE.

theisgroup: Mains started at 7am and were done by 5pm.

Change for this years event.
A MAIN TROPHY'S WILL BE HANDED OUT IMMEDIATELY AFTER EACH A MAIN. THIS WAY THE EMOTIONS WILL BE OVERFLOWING AND EVERYONE IS IN THE MOMENT. PICS WILL BE TAKEN BY MEDIA AND FAMILY, THEN NEXT RACE. ALSO THIS ALLEVIATES TRYING TO GET ALL THE GUYS TOGETHER AT THE END FOR AWARDS.

syndr0me: Thank you for your support, We are trying to make this the absolute best we can. Obviously Brushless motors are far more expensive than a brushed motor, so our goal is to keep the entry fee as low as possible, the more detailed the motor, as you mentioned the cost goes up.

overflow: there are many things that guys have learned over the past couple of years with Brushless motors to mess with them. Handout motors will help make the fairest contest possible.

yeti35: Thanks also to you for you support!

TURD: I heard your kinda a big deal? Thanks

BEAR: Thanks, Kind words.

JayBee: Glad you are all set, you are going to have a blast.

As always, if you have any other questions, please let us know.

website is up www.intchamps.com

Entry will go live Monday night, Boomer and I will be live online if there are any problems and RCTECH will be our chat area during this time.


Thanks,
Scotty
Scotty and or Boomer!

Will we be alowed to trim the solder tabs on the brushless motors to squeeze them into the smaller 1/12th motor pods?

The Jaco's worked out well last year. I only used one set for quals and mains as did many others from what I heard. I used a couple during practice but they were used tires I brought with me. I think you can buy up to four sets, but do not quote me on that.

They were greens last year and I doubt it would change for this year since they worked well before.
