Are these rules being followed? For instance in a couple of the classes, fhss are the only legal boards. It seems like kyosho tried to be very specific about what is allowed, but also left some things out that they probably should have included.

There were complaints leading up to the PN race about what was and wasnít allowed. This time itís Kyosho that makes the rules designed to show their products, not the aftermarket.

Not complaining about the kyosho only products. Actually I hope I am not coming across as complaining at all. In the wide touring section it states that the VE, VE pro and evo are allowed boards but they only allow fhss2 to be used. I do not think the ve boards can use fhss. And obviously there are several other transmitters that can be used with the evo that kyosho has produced themselves

It is amazing just how restrictive these rules are in so many areas. How many clubs in the US run Kyosho rules year round? It seems that these rules would really limit participation?

Cheers,
Jim

thereís Futaba and KOP0 for the Evo.

Honestly I gave up trying to understand the frequency thing once my Evoís Went to KOPO.

Think I developed a bit of dyslexia trying. I canít keep the letter combinations straight.

Probably more then we know. But itís Kyosho show. Iíve learned from the Sidewinderz guys and EMU, rules for small scale racing have been a nightmare for years. I do know there are some trying to get a more universal rules package together. Buts thatís seems for for club or non manufacturer sponsored events. If it says PN, they rule, Kyosho they rule. Donít know if GL has any, but Iíd expect the same. Their rules.

The poster is a little hard to understand, but my understanding is that the production class is limited to only sports(FHS) and FHSS electronics and brushed motors. While both narrow and wide classes permit ASF, VE, evo, etc. With the transmitters on the lower perimeter of the poster.

I see it now, you are right emu, the narrow and wide touring are kind of combined even though they appear to be separate. They really need to edit that thing it is really hard to follow.

I signed up for 3 classes. I have not ran a pure stock car since December should be fun. They have the track layout on the website Excelrc, looks like a fun track to run on.
