For the RCGT class do we need to bring our own tires or will they be avail. at the race and will they be mounted or unmounted. I wanted to run a 200mm body which requires 6mm off set tires...

Anthony, this is a post of mine right after the RCGT series.


Down here in SoCal during the Speedtech RCGT 6 race series my friend ran a 200mm body with 3mm/6mm offset tires for a day and was kind of slow. He then switched to a 190mm body and 0mm offset and instantly qualified better. I ran 190mm the whole series. We finished the series 5th and 4th overall in sportsman. HPI X patterns were the spec tire for the entire series. The pro belted tires started out strong but seem to fall off after about 4 minutes into a qualifier/main. The D compound tire was not as aggresive but felt more consistant for the full 7 minutes of qualifiers/mains. Hope this helps, Paco.

the tires for the race are premounted D-compounds with stock inserts, on a white, 0mm split-six wheel. every entrant will receive one free set of tires upon registration at the track. racers will have the option to purchase ONE additional set of wheels/tires. for practice however, you can bring/run your own D-compound tires

you can still run a 200mm body with the wheels, you will just need to run some thicker wheel hex's and/or wheel spacers, i think that's what i'm going to be running!

We received some more entries over the weekend and will post the entries received so far tomorrow.

Great to see you guys had such a great time at the warm up. That is the first time I have ever seen pictures of the track and it looks very nice. Congrats.

Great that Billy got to do some running.

Looking forward to seeing everyone next month.

Thanks
Scotty

scotty, i am entered in the RCGT class. There are a few questions that we have. since we are running "HEADS UP" like the invite class, (a great idea) just how many races will we get? the other open classes get 4 quals and at least a main. does that mean we in the RCGT class are getting 5 races where we are heads up and our points that we receive will determine our finishing spots? or will we get to run 4 races on sat and then 4 races on sunday with our slowest race on each day then used as a throw out? if we get 4 races each day i think that the RCGT class would fill up in a hurry.

sorry for the long post.

Rich

Default rcgt vs vintage trans am???

Hey all: As the title implies what are the differences between these two series? P.S. i'm glad to see more coast controlled relistic types of on and off road rc vehicles/classes being introducted for a few reasons:
1 It will help get more people into the rc hobby i.e. coast effective
2 You won't feel outclassed by a pro driver or someone who can afford better equipment than you
3 It's fun to see all these relistic cars/trucks racing on the track

#2 will need to be readdressed because there are some heavy hitters in that class It won't be a walk in the park

RCGT utilizes Modern cars, not late 60's, early 70's cars.
RCGT utilizes Xpattern D Compound tires, not the VIntage D compounds.
RCGT utilizes the 17.5/Brushes Motors, some Vintage rules require a 21 turn motor.
RCGT is 7 minutes, heads up starts.

I think that's pretty much it.

I am looking for the rules on reedyrace.com for some odd reason the website is not available can anyone help. Why can't we run either belted or D compound I just figured since I have these tires with the stock inserts anyways it would make sense to run those rather then pay for more tires I am sure Scotty will make plenty of money on the Jaco's. I thought this class was about cost savings and fun. Here is a simple solution A. follow the RCGT rules and B. top 5 in A main cut open there tires if there are any doubts. Can someone put me in my place or clarify these questions. One other question will there be enough premounted D's to purchase what the 13.5 and mod guys purchase not that I would purchase so many sets but what if a racer wants to run brand new tires every run ?
