Default 1/12 spec

I have always liked the 1/12 17.5 timing class and that is what my local club has always run, but after going to the Halloween Classic this past weekend, I am a true "blinky" fan. The racing was really close with the Driver being the main variable.

It was so nice to just tweak the pinion a little and go driver and NOT have to hope you have all the right timing settings along with the pinion........

At any rate, how about an online petition to change 1/12 17.5 to Blinky for the Champs ??? Or at least for the old man's class (masters)

less than a month to go is not the time to discuss changes to the line-up.

It is what it is and will be an awesome race.

Actually the discussion started weeks ago, I was simply putting in my opinion. And since most racers are procrastinators, they haven't entered yet anyway...

Should blinky remain the norm, then we'll definitely offer the "restrictor plate" class next year. That being said, My boosted WGT experience at the Classic was great. One change to the software, and suddenly my car was ridiculously fast, using a THREE year old motor.

Also, for clarification, ROAR motor rules will be in effect at the Indoor Champs. That means no mixing of parts from various motors to create a "super-spec" hybrid motor.

For example, a Duo3 must use Duo3 series endbells, rotors, and sensor assemblies. No D3's with RevTech endbells, or Duo2's with RevTech rotors, etc. If the parts weren't included in the original ROAR approval for that specific teardown, they are not legal to be used together. Any instance of this that is discovered is grounds for immediate disqualification from the event.

Default 1/12 Mod vs 17.5

I am interested in MOD becuase I don't want to fuss with my ESC. Like the good ol' days - if you want to go faster simply put a faster motor in!

I have 60 c 5600 mah packs - will that be enough on 4 turns? What gearing and timing would you suggest for this track layout?

Default Open Mod

It doesn't matter then if you want to swap motor parts for MOD? Hense the name "OPEN MOD" ?

Open Mod merely means that you can run whatever wind you wish. All motors still need to meet the specifications outlined in the rules. These rules were established to prevent someone from buying several different $80 motors to combine parts to build one "super" motor.

Seeded primarily on previous year's results. I like this because it incentivizes regular attendance.

And its also the reason that people who dont attend every year dont usually go either. Nothing worse in my opinion.

Ian:
By the ROAR rules the entire Duo series of motors and the RevTech may use the same D3 rotors. I found that out when printing out the ROAR approved motor list. They now include approved rotors and their applications on that list.
Just info for you.

Thanks for the update!! We'll make note of that and print out the approved list. I'll pass the info on to our tech director, the illustrious John Warner.
