^it would be a tough sell Franko.

The maclan would be better value than the hobbywing for local service and reliability compared to the hobbywing in this situation.

Hard to sell really
amain is out of stock

It doesn’t matter
My point was I already has my motor for two years and I Am not buying another 25.5 motor for this club plus at the time Maclan motor and mine wasnt much of the difference and Donny and Mike did well and TQ the races...dont hear me bitching
why not grandfather in those motor just like did the Novak and the novak isnt roar legal I could be wrong!
If the Orca is too fast than speak up...dont ban others motor for the wrong reason.

Sorry, it doesn't work that way, the Comp Committee made a decision, this is the spec for next season. Please feel free to join the Comp Committee (we are looking for new members right now) if you would like to see the club rules go in a different direction.

Actually, itís the new racer that wins, because they wonít have ANY reason to buy 4+ motors over time. Now itís Just one choice and at a crazy great price that should last a long long time. I think itís a great decision by the COMP committee. Over time, it will help. Maybe a few, like you will boycott or whatever just to make your point , artificially, but others will see the value and itíll start growing again, just like when it was only Novak. Imho

Franko, you are my teacher. I appreciate your participation in the club's matters and thank you for giving voice to what others are probably thinking.

I want to respond to a couple of things that you said.

First, the CC's decision was not taken lightly or without cognizance that there would be push back and disgruntlement. Including from those who I would hope to have on our side. I can't say we were prepared for it in the sense we formulated a canned answer to every objection. But we are prepared to answer patiently and respectfully questions honestly asked.

Second, this was not a move made against any brand, person, group, or arising from any particular event. Straight up, we detect a slowing conversion of Novices to racers who remain committed to the sport. I read that as a warning. The first and longest debate in committee was whether to take action or continue to ride with the rules as currently formulated and seek solutions through some other means. But the collective wisdom of the committee came back repeatedly to wanting to simplify and slow down our single best offering to accomplish the conversion.

I'll say it again, we bear no animus toward any brand or vendor, and certainly not toward any of our friends who may be involved with them.

An RC company willing to work with our club and give our racers a discount? I see nothing but positives. On top of this theyíre known to have very good customer service. 6-7 months is a lot of time to save $60 too.
