Default Bolink Legends- coming back and possibly a new series

Bolink R/C is back with a new owner. Legends are back into production. Last year I had a Custom Car show series in Jacksonville. It's still in the planing stages for 2007. The idea to get a Legends race at each car show is in the works. I've just got to talk with the area director- he'll be back from vacation next week.This should not be a problem. Presently working on a few rule changes. Batteries - still 4 cell but make your own IB 4200's.
Motors - some type of trinitystock motor
Brushes and springs are still being worked out.
Type of race will be oval. Race lenght to be determined. There will also be a best paint and Tophies at either each series race and at the final race.Plus while not racing you'll be able to see some fine Custom cars- different at each event. Got any ideas send them my way.
The new Leisure Racer.........................

Mark you got any suggestions for motors and batteries. they will be limited on the stock pinions 21/22 and standard spur gear(I think it was a 81). I want something that is easy for any hobby shop to carry.

Yes I said wicked fast, but there was no pun intended, just the free plug.

I know this isnt much, but in apopka we run at Jims flat concrete oval, we run 21 81 for gearing, any none exotic foam (ie, blue, silver, green) and any 1700 or less mah battery. most of us use the trinity spec packs, they are cheap and work well.

i should also mention we use his handout 5 degree stock motors that are in rotation and we cant touch, it truely is spec racing.

but never the less, legends is a blast, id love to get mine back together and maybe use some "Wicked Fast" lubes to keep it running smooth

He's got more control of the racing there. Here I've got to different groups and I want to keep it easy for the hobby shops to supply the batteries and tires and parts. Not having a spec pack and using the batteries everyone else has at any hobby shop - I think would be better. I've also thought about just using the IB 3800's or the 4200. This way last years batteries still have some sort of use.Motors- Trinty monster with the black springs and any brushes. I'm still thinking about the tires.I shooting for Dec 2 for the finalized rules with Legends for these series coming up here. If anyone wanted to run these in the state series again - I'm game- as I'll mention this to Izzy in the next few nights.
Y'all have a Happy Thanksgiving and hopefully I'll see everyone at the Superior Race with the rules and race.
The Leisurer Racer!

3800's would be good as well as 3300's just because we all have those laying around somewhere, as for motor rules, those sound fine, its going to be interesting to see what some people come up with.

are you going to allow bearings, because i believe the kits now come with them, atleast mine did, but its a race spec not a bolink.

The Bolink kit availble have always come with bushing. We could have that as a different class- maybe the pro class?

Bill how about some sort of brushless system like the ones novak makes for the RTR Losi's? this way you don't have to worry about spec brushes and springs.

Thank's for your suggestions but no thanks.
There will be three Classes:
Junior/women-------Racer -------Pro
The difference between Racer and Pro is Ball bearing in the front wheels and rear axle for the Pro and the kit for racers.
Motors are looking like Monster stock
batteries 3800 or 4200 4 cell and can be hard wired or any connectors.
These might be raced at a series near you next year. Probably two track here in Jax and the Car show I will be doing has 4 sites.Trophies for the Car show series with overall championship trophies.
Ya'll can laugh and make jokes about these simple to run cars but you do get new drivers and they are Cheap! Somebody just retired down your way (South) that started racing these things and became Very Good.You want an cheaper way to get someone racing in this hobby and possibly get them to move up. It may not be what you want them to race but if they have fun - that's what it is about.

Bill I have a couple of legends cars I will put up for sale soon.

They are from past releases, but they will be cheap. If I get a chance, I will get them up to Harry's.

No thanks. I am sure it would be fun, but I am having plenty with offroad. Thanks for the offer though.
