He's looking wistfully towards a brighter future, when we can all agree on motor rules.

Speaking of motor rules, I think there should be a motor rule for the smaller indoor tracks and a motor rule for the larger outdoor tracks. I think this would balance everything out.

For example;
Indoor,
Mini-21.5
GT3-25.5
GT2-21.5
GT1-17.5 or lower
F1-25.5

Outdoor,
Mini-21.5
GT3-21.5
GT2-17.5
GT1-13.5
F1-21.5

I think this would end would be the fairest for all.

Please leave the F1 motor rules alone.

not quite... so if i did an indoor and outdoor race in the same season, in GT2 for example... I'd need to have 2 different motors

there's no need for 25.5 motors anyplace in TCS racing

Thumbs up

Personally, I like the new 25.5 F1 motor rules here in So Cal. The cars are still plenty quick given the 1050g minimum weight and direct drive. IMO the most recent 21.5 short stacks offer more motor than the F1 cars need.

Not to beat a dead horse, but the motors chosen by TA that are not Tamiya branded products have more to do with availability and support than anything I believe, as this has been the case in the past. While Tamiya does offer brushless equipment, it is not produced by Tamiya. Second, while Tamiya Japan might have the staffing and capabilities to support repair and replacement of these items, Tamiya America cannot. Since TA cannot test, or repair these motors, every motor issue would almost be a no questions asked replacement. Very cost prohibitive. This is the same reason Tamiya batteries, and escs are also not spec'd in the series.

...on another note, while this should probably go in the for sale section, I wanted to make sure the people I know would be interested aware of it first. Just moving and cleaning out some stuff, and found some Tamiya apparel I hadn't worn and thought it was time to let it go.

XL. PM me if any interest.

I agree, with the 25.5 the cars are quick on not on the edge of control. Cars are a blast to drive.

The consideration is to change to 25.5 motors for F1 vs. the current 21.5. We have changed to the 25.5 motors in the Tuning Haus Series and also TQ RC Racing series and the class has gone from an average of 5-6 racers to around 15. The cars are more driveable, little to no wheel spin and has closed up the fields. We are seeing a growth in more Sportsman level drivers coming back. A few people have also been testing 25.5 motors at the tamiya track (including a past F1 National Champion) and they were surprised at how much more driveable it made their F1 car and only a few tenth's slower than a 21.5. I believe ROAR is going 25.5 for F1 this year also.
