And that called scale spec. lol. I like scale spec. but it would not do anything in that class. we dont have alot of rpm's anyway. just dont like it. probably a good idea for higher power classes to keep them in check..

Still will be a horsepower battle with acceleration (batteries) but it would eliminate most of it. I'm surprised it's taken somebody this long to create it. I really like it. Think there is a place for it in all classes.

No matter what ....people always going to complaint about losing
On the one hand, I like the idea of leveling things. On the other hand, I loathe the idea of having more electronics to servo tape down, and making things more complex for the newcomers.

Now.... if this were to be introduced in conjunction with the existence and allowance of substantially lower-cost 25.5 motors, then maybe it'd be worthwhile. Let's be honest, Silver Can blows (because it's brushed and it doesn't fit properly in many/most modern chassis, not necessarily from a competition standpoint), and the Novak 25.5 is bloody expensive.

A bigger can of worms is what it is, because now you have to buy the best torque motor to gear it up with limited rpms. Then come the suspicions of who knows how to tweak the limiter, and sensor boards to report lower than actual numbers...

The only way of truly controlling spec IMO, is to have handout calibrated, puttied motor screws and tested electronics. (IIC Spec GT style) Or to not change a thing from how spec classes are now, I haven't seen cheating aside from blatant (13.5 in 17.5 class) thus far...

(If you were being sarcastic Jake, I completely missed it.)

No sarcasm today !

Yeah, I like scale spec as it is because it has a spec motor. I agree that 17.5 and 13.5 would benefit from a spec motor but we know that won't happen because the motor manufacturers don't want to allow a monopoly ...... so a rev limiter AND a tight window for the FDR would be optimal, IMHO. Basically, over time, the manufacturers would be forced to make a motor that works great in that tiny rpm and gearing window and all that will differentiate from one brand to another would be quality and durability.

Anyway....... is everyone ready for the big race tomorrow ? 10 am start

Does the Club still have a truer and WGT arbor to borrow? If not, could I borrow someone's WGT arbor tomorrow so that I can true up some WGT tires?

See you in the AM!
