Post  skillz on Sun 19 Aug - 19:32

Howzit Guys.

This coming week we are back to the fast classes. Weather looks good for Protea Club.
Please come early to help setup track. Racing will start at 8pm sharp!

There is a special request from members and committee that we must finish race nights EARLY please. So the focus will be on starting on time ( 8pm sharp) and not stopping the clock during the evening so we shoulb be finished by 10pm. Then hopefully old members can return and we can get new ones too Very Happy

See you guys there.

Cheers!

Howzit Guys.

This is what I was refering to in GT class:

Motors:
17.5t stock spec brushless system, sensored or unsensored. Other ESC’s may be used but must indicate sportsmans / blinky mode by way of a flashing LED or brushed Tamiya 23t BZ / RZ / TZ, these allow brush replacement and comm cutting. Original armature only (no hybrids, no rewinds or other mods). Timing tab must be in place as intended

The rules are clear and no timing advancement allowed. Esc must be in "sportsmens mode". The same as our mini classes.

I did some research today, if it was the extreme then yes it should've had the blinky light on for stock mode, but still waiting for Abdul to send me the details of which one he had in the car.

@Shafiek - if you chat to Abdul, please ask him to send me the details of his esc he ran in GT, thanks.

Sam, it doesn't matter what esc was used. If driver is not using a system like the "Justock" 17.5 system from hobbywing then in order for the driver to prove that he is running zero timing advancement, he has to have his programme card present so scruiiteneer can check.

I know the "stock systems" have a perment "flashing light" which is this "sportsmens mode". Anyways. I think its important that everyone knows the rules so that racing can be fair and fun.

So even if the "system" being used is a "sportsmans", "stock" whatever they call it esc, it still has a flashing light??

My Jusstock system has a flashing light and when u plug in the programme card u can't do any timing advancement cause its a stock esc and motor.

I know Ty used to run Dave's 17.5 motor and a esc, which was not a stock system in mini 2wd, but he had the programme card with him to proove that there was zero timing advancements.

I totally agree! Attitudes must change on and off the track.

We all do this for enjoyment. Clubs have rules which must be followed and its the committees duty to enforce the rules.

I simply asked a question: and got a "I don't know" answer. Then went to the committee and got a "I don't know the rules" answer.

The point is not wining.

The point of introducing brushless into GT was to give the guys who want to go brushless the opportuinity to do so. So the committee chose the "stock" system to run along side the brushed motors and be at a slight disadvantage. So in order to see if this is working for the class then all needs to be done according to the rules.

I simply asked the question based on the times I was seeing on the computer. The winner of GT A Final was eight tenths faster than second place. Both were runnbing bl systems. 2nd place was running the JusStock system. The winner of GT was also Five tenths quicker than the fastest car in proGT, which was both driven by the same driver. So for the fairness of the class, the question was asked.
