Default USSRCRA Race 3 Eclipse Hobbies Bradley IL

USSRCRA Race 3 March 9

The United States Scale RC Racing Association Race #3
Eclipse Hobbies
Bradley IL

This is the third race in a new format for scale racing cars. Each class will have a 3 minute qualifying period, followed by 3 x 10 minute mains. Best five laps average will count for qualifying, laps do not need to be consecutive. Each main will be worth 100 points, with a 2 point TQ bonus. Points will be awarded by best time of each round of mains, not by main finishing position, so it is possible for a C main racer to post the best time and collect 100 points! Winner will be determined by day's point total (302 max. possible)

Classes:
USVTA TRANS AM

USVTA USGT
Rules - http://www.usvintagetransam.com/rules/index.html

Formula One:
No Timing "Blinky" ESC 21.5 BL 2s lipo ROAR Approved motors and ESC
open rubber tire - must attach to axle by single nut fastener/hex drive
straight axle 2wd - no I R S suspensions
All suspension pickup points must be inside body (no 1/12 front ends, etc)
190mm width
3mm ride height
1050g minimum weight

LE MANS:
205mm width
No Pan car/wgt wheels - must use single nut attachment/hex drive
Must use IMSA/Group C/LeMans prototype style SCALE body - Rear wing should not be part of the molded body
2wd
21.5 motor No Timing "Blinky" ESC 2s lipo ROAR Approved motors and ESC

Le Mans class is being developed right now, so for this race rules are minimal. This is to encourage racers to bring whatever type of car they have (F103GT, F103LM, Cross Fire Force, Speed Passion, etc). With feedback from this race, rules should become more developed.

Sheeeeh, don't tell Phil...

I think Phil will be too busy running to show to drive his LM1/F1/USGT so I may cruse over and steal his ride for the day.

I am currently trying to track down my old I-Lap, so I can run this race. It is a fun format, and door prizes are a bonus.

Do you need and I-Lap for this place or does the reg transponders work here? I am hoping I can make it. We will see what the boss says.
