I was not planning on the inversion. The resort was to group the fastest together with Sunday being pretty much a Last Chance for those who could not make Saturday. Might just IFMAR #1-3 and Heads up #4 good points.

Note the Runtime also. We have been running longer than that for 2 months and whilst we had grumbles early on now all love it. Mini is 8 min on club nights. We also have been running a 13.5 brushless at 8 min also.

I must have missed the post to see what you are talkin about.

I am a fan of heads-up. Seems like you do IFMAR then run the mains heads-up, people forget how to race, many crashes and hacking. If I had 4 qualifiers I would be a fan of IFMAR and 3 heads up or a 50/50 format, IFMAR being 1st. Have the resort after IFMAR.

That way when you hit the mains people are used to running heads-up.

My 2 cents

Jeff- Go to the Northwest forum and look at the recent posts under TCS. All will be revealed...

Dan- Really like the longer run times. Last time I ran Mini at the C we had a ten minute Main. Lap times at the end were hardly slower than the beginning. At the end of ten minutes of very close racing, Matt Jarrett beat me by less than a hundredth of a second. Sweet!

Thanks for the input Doug.

We wanted to add a little twist and make it a little more unique without letting Doug P put his tight Pink girlie shirt on ( I still have nightmares about that posted pic).

I know at Nats('06) Fred and Doug also talked about trying some different qual procedures and this was one that came out of that. Not sure if it is going to happen at Nats but Fred is coming to Seattle for the TCS......

I have a question for the TCS guru's...we are trying to get a TCS legal mini class going in the area and I would like to know how to tech silver cans. How are you able to tell if they have been cranked etc.

On the Silvercan tips/tricks thread there was a lot of info on tuning tips and how to tech them too.

Simple way
In Canada our TCS rules state:
3. Kit type closed-end bell, silver can motor only. Motors must not perform better that a 1.3amp draw at 2volts on a Peak or Orion Motor Performance Monitor.
This allows some lattitude but if you try cranking it or zapping it will go over.

Although with locked comms on the newer motors if you try cranking or coil shifting you will destroy the motor.
The better solution is 2v at 1.3 amps, that way anybody can check it.

Default Question

At the national championships a few years ago, I remember that the tires of the winners were sliced open and inspected. I was wondering if anybody knew what they were looking for, especially when you consider that any insert was legal.
thanks

I don't know the answer for sure, but a few years ago. The nats. had a hand out b2 tire. The only real way to tell between each tamiya tire is to cut them open. That's the only place tamiya marks what kind of tire it is. Hope that helps.
