REDRC update on pipe protest:

We have spoken to a number of key figures here in the pits regarding the pipe controversy that broke late last night. The problem surrounds Sirio’s latest version of the Sirio #2611 exhaust pipe and in partictular the position and design of the stinger.
We asked Sirio boss Andrea Rossi for his position on the situation and his reply was brief saying that there appears to have been a communication breakdown with IFMAR regarding the submitted drawings for the new pipe design. IFMAR claim to have not recieved any submission for the changes. Rossi says they will revert to the older spec design for the #2611 pipe. Sirio will use the same pipe as used in qualifying but with a new stinger fitted and this will now be tested in the lower finals in the car of Davide Gallesi to see how it performs.
Novarossi who unearthed the problems with the pipe spec are very disappointed with how the matter has been dealt with and say it sends out bad signals for the sport. Novarossi plan to issue a full statement regarding the matter after the event but say they have no more confidence in those running the sport. We will bring you that statement as soon as we get it.
One other manufacturer made the comment that the descision is bad for the sport and in particular the privateer drivers who may get disqualified for a very small techincal infringement like a body shell being 1mm too low yet leading professional drivers can run an exhaust that doesnt meet the rules and yet the result stands.
A leading driver who was at the IFMAR 1:10 section meeting last night says the exhaust controversy may be a blessing in disguise as it looks like it may lead to a big shake up in the sport and see big changes in the standardising of the rules and a more professional approach being taken in the running of rc racing.

I find it interesting that it took so long to pick this up and by the looks of the reports it was Novarossi and not the scrutineers who did pick it up. In Brisbane in 06 we had a tool that was 5.2mm to check the stinger. It seems from the reports that they didn't use a similar tool to check the stingers at this worlds. If I remember correctly this is what caused Mark green to DQ from his final that he won preventing him from making either the semi or the main can't recall which.

Cheers Al

The tool would not go into the stinger, it was legal at the end. The problem is that it is conical, shorter and straighter then the old one.

It's not the ID of the stinger bat it's length, position and the fact that it conical on the inside.

Stefan I think it's neither - It looks like the bottom line is that the Sirio 2611 pipe they used ( with the fat stinger pointing forwards) is not the same as the 2611 pipe which is EFRA Homologated

Looks like Marc will need one more stop but should still hang on to at least second.
