Default Paved On-road Nationals update

Racers

Rose City Scale Racing is happy to announce that Associated Electrics and Reedy Modifieds have agreed be the Title Sponsor for the Paved On-Road Nationals.
This level of support from a first class manufacturer is greatly appreciated.
In appreciation of this support we are using Reedy motors as handouts for the event.
Associated/Reedy are providing us with a generous amount of prizes that will go to competitors at the Nationals.

Novak Electronics has joined up also. Novak has agreed to subsidize entry fees for the brushless class so the entry fee is $25. Novak will also have 15 or so loaner systems for racers who want to try out the brushless system. There is no charge for use. Brushless competitors will have triple A-mains and controlled practice sessions just like all other classes. The rules for the class will be the same as for sedan. ROAR guidelines for brushless motors will be used for technical inspection.

Loaner systems are first come first served please make a note on your entry that you wish to borrow a system.

The spec tire is Take-off cs27 premounted. We use sugar water and VHT for surface prep. Our hand out coordinator is out of town untill Monday. He is our contact with Reedy. As soon as I know I will post the motor selection for the Nationals.

If I'm not mistaken ROAR rules only allow you to run one of the stock classes. You could run Masters stock and 19t. Thats what I'm planning to do. Sending in my entry tomorrow.

Any word on the stock motors?

My guess is that the MVP and the Reedy 19t Quad would be the motors....but I know it would be a help prepairing if we knew for sure.

Any motor info would be great!

announced on a different thread - yes MVP and Reedy Quad

Recommendations to all:

- on the MVP, either narrow the brushes (ala Big Jim) or at least trim the trailing edge. Otherwise you will glitch and/or overheat

- on both the MVP and Reedy Quad 19, go several teeth up on the pinion at a minimum with your gearing. It is almost impossible to over-gear either or them.
