The image is tough during this part of the day with the angle of the sun. In a couple hours it will be better, and once night falls......the real spectacle begins!

So what are the rules?

Certain amount of motor changes? Tire changes? Battery changes?

You guys must be trying to use wifi to push video huh? It's useless at RC tracks unless you go 5ghz.

We do use LiveRC for some of the other big races we run, but for this race we cannot risk the scoring computer crashing and there isn't a convenient way to mirror the scoring feed onto another computer for broadcast. We ran into this challenge the first year and despite Doug and Brandon's assistance, we weren't able to make it work.

Check out the race thread for all the gory details of this mayhem. The short version is that we issue the teams their kits NIB a couple hours before the start just like the Andernoch 24hr race, but we allow the teams to use all their own electronics.

The night racing is insane!

It's a fact. It competes with the 2.4ghz radios and loses.

Our camera is wired.....but the laptop it is connected to is wireless to the router. I'll try to find a cat5 cable and go hardwired. Stand by.


OK, we're hardwired in. Everybody hit refresh and see if the feed is better.

It'll probably make a big difference. I went to 5ghz at 5280 and our internet went from unusable to perfect. Well, perfect for me since I'm the only one with a laptop that can do 5ghz, apparently.

The scoring/LiveRC machine is wired, and it's solid. We've got the best looking video on LiveRC, always pegged at 30FPS. And getting it done over a Clear 4G WiMAX card.

Yezzir, BIG gaps at times when bad luck strikes in endurance racing. But the race is long and anything can happen.
