Next Event: Race 4: Formula One and FF03 on Tuesday 6/11/2012

Post  skillz on Wed 31 Oct - 9:35

Howzit Guys.

So this coming Tuesday Night on back to our popular Formula One and FF 03 Class. Please arrive early.
Racing will start at 8 sharp, if you going to be late then please sms your entries to matt, sam or hamish.

please dont forget that our current class rules for this season for ff03 in terms of motors is:

Motors:
Unopened 540-size silver/grey can Johnson/Mabuchi 2 slot motors only or 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

So no sport tuned motors or 14t or 13.5t allowed!!! we have done some testing and could see that the sport tuned motor, 14t and 13.5 is much faster. We cant go now changing the rules for the last 2 races of the championship because its unfair to those who are doing well in the championship and are running 17.5 systems. I suggest that the committee has a meeting with all club members at the end of the season so we can vote in terms of what motors to run for the next season in this class. The closest brushed/brushless combo we will have will be our current johnson vs 17.5 stock or black can vs tamiya 14t. the team wave 13.5 is way too fast.

I think the committee needs to finalize rules changes soon, before the end of the year, so the guys can prepare for the following season.

Here's my 5 cents .

There is no way I'm buying a Tamiya 14T ! I don't intend doing TC and therefor can't justify the cost .
While I completely understand the rational behind the 14T with guys doing TC . If we are going that route we need to find an alternative . So the 13,5T in sportsman mode is to fast ??????

I think we should stick with what we have got !!! It seems to be working , why break it ?

HEY GUYS

I THINK THAT A BLACK RUNS THE BEST IN THE FF, JOHNSON IS TOO SLOW AND I DON'T SEE HOW IT CAN COMPARE TO A 17.5T BRUSHLESS, I THINK BLACK CANS ARE AFFORDABLE, WE HAVE A NEW MEMBER NOW (AHMED) AND HIS NEXT CAR IS A FF03,

JUST MY 80 CENTS

Last 3 races I was running silver can vs the 17.5's and I was faster. I think black can will be faster than 17.5. But for new season maybe more testing can be done and members can vote...my 2 cents...Smile

Well tonite was interesting, with my car geared to the max with a 17.5 and Nev's car geared to the max with 17.5 we could not match the silvercans for pace!!! 0.6sec off on average........like WTF??? One things for sure though, it was like watching paint dry!!! We definately need more speed in this class!!

I got to agree.

After the first heat, I changed to silver can.

The FF03's are so much more fun with a bit more power in it. Very Happy
