For those that haven't seen, I put a new blog post up this morning:
https://theracerunderground.blogspot...in-bubble.html

Also, I'm going to have 3 days free (April 22-24) for anyone that wants to come out for a test n' tune day. Hopefully the weather should be decent enough to turn laps.

Hi Gary,

Rest and let it heal. We will always have your spot on the drivers stand when you are ready. :-)

Hopefully things work out and we see you back at the track in the near future.

Default Scale Spec gearing

After a very long winterís nap itís time to get the literal dust off my old car just in time for outdoor season. Life really got in the way of racing this last fall and winter, but Iím fixing that! Iím trying my hand at Scale Spec for a change, and I really have no idea what Iím doing for gearing. I searched the thread, I swear Any suggested FDRs for the Maclan V2 21.5?

Default Monday afternoon practice

I am prepping the onroad track with soda at around noonish Monday the 23rd ( tomorrow ). The track should just need to be blown off every day this week for some great practice time.

Cheers,

Jake

Default Turf Work Party!

Work Party

3000 sq. ft. of sod is being delivered on Wednesday. We need to roll it out.

Skip the gym and come to the track for a Seattle RC Racers crossfit session! We'll hit the glutes, low back, shoulders, and legs.

I haven't been paying attention, what's the latest and greatest 21.5 and 17.5 motors that will pass tech?

Hey Ritchie,

The spec motor wars are in full fury right now, with the top companies playing a not-nice game of "catch me if you can." In the fastest cars I see a lot of R1 Wurks, Team Scream, and of course, the ultimate usual suspect, Trinity. And wouldn't you know, those are also the top of the discard pile at races with active tech. To be fair, they're not the only ones getting popped, but to be real, they lead the way.

I'm not sure if that answers your question in the way you're hoping, but those are the fast motors. Buying off the shelf, probably you'll be okay. Or to put it another way, so long as you're running a ROAR-approved motor, you'll be okay. We don't have the equipment to test stator IR with a credible degree of accuracy. You could be running a ROAR-approved motor that doesn't meet the ROAR spec, and we won't know.

FWIW, I'm running a Motiv in Stock TC this summer.
