It wasn't a hint, I know it's a mission to put the points on if you don't have the results of a flashdrive or something. I never have mine when I need it Embarassed

So the 17,5T and 13T classes will become gloryfied TT01 cars,all the same,wonder if they not taking the fun out of racing now.

How the hell can you take the fun out of racing??? Foam tyres, rubber tyres, drift tyres, knobblies, it's all fun!!!!!! Rolling Eyes

Not mistakes, catching up to IFMAR and ROAR. Very Happy

There's a very scientific explanation for that, but it's top secret!! Cool

The hobbyshop owners don't have a say as to which tyres are to be used as in fwd.

2quick did mention it, 3 sets for mod and 2 sets for all other touring car classes for whole weekend. They will mark tyres somehow, same as marking chassis at nats. Tyre choice is up to the individual.
Ray wrote:Good question Bosman and good answer 2quick. I am just worried that they use a controlled tyre at nationals like they do with the fwd. It will be a bit of a raw deal because we do club events on a tyre and then have to do setup all over for nationals. I am sure they thought it through and lets hope it's an open minded decision.
It would be better if the clubs followed the sarda rulings as a guideline, especially if there are members that attend nats on a regular basis, or you could run tyres as open, which if I'm not mistaken is how the rules stand at the moment at diaz, tyre choice is rubber or foams?? So if you want to run rubbers to be prepared for nats then it's your choice. And as you say, they are competitive against foams, just takes more chassis prep.

@ 2 Quick, its time to stand up,its time to make club decissions,as it is,request came that we should host a national----why ??,,,we have a perfect racetrack,one of the best in the country,why should these rules affect us.
Most if not all clubs worldwide follow the rules of the organising body in their region as a guideline to make life a bit easier at club level so that clubs don't fall too far behind the times. Look where brushless and lipo are going, without the governing body making rules and recommendations clubs would be at sixes and sevens!!

I agree to some extend and disagree to some extend. If one wants to stand up, then do it when and where it counts. I enjoy racing foams, but we have to move up with the times seeing that we are always behind other countries. Any rule suggestion can be made at club level I reckon, but what is it going to benefit one that wants to attend a national event. No experience with rubber tyres and car setup, totally different from foam tyres. Hosting a national is not a problem if one has the man power to do all the work. It takes a bit of strategic planning and effort and it will be very difficult to host a national event and still compete as a club member. There is hardly enough volunteers to run the AMB system on a race day. On a positive note, it can be done, the rule changes and hosting a national event, if we apply our minds and stand and work together and live in harmony. I speak from my personal capacity.

Lets stick to the rules that we have been doing and change the Sarda classes to rubber. I wish that those who have time to sit on facebook all day can find the time to come onto the forum sometime too. The handfull that commented here does not give us any real idea. I am racing on rubber even if the club should decide not to change.
Lets pm all these buggers that hasn't commented here yet. Come agm they will vote but wont know what it is about.

Maybe the forum needs to be advertised/promoted a bit more as an active club discussion area, and not the shop floor. Laughing Laughing Jokes, it's cool standing in the shop talking *insert choice word* about rc for hours!! Cool Maybe make a poster in the shop, advertise the flying section, offroad section, etc available on the forum. Where's Brad? What's happening to the drifting scene?? Or is he paintballbefok??

Someone needs to step up to the plate and keep the forum updated on a regular basis wrt to results, lap records, rule changes, up coming events, ideas, etc etc. Without that, there is no interest to discuss anything.
Being proactive is much easier than being reactive!!

You must remember that only the guys that read stuff are on the forum. There is no sense in putting up a poster if the guys aren't gonna read it in any case.

Stop saying what is NOT going to happen, and be part of the transformation of what's GOING to happen. Too much pessimism and not enough optimism!! So who's stepping up to the plate??? You offering bud?? I know you can type!! Cool Cool

I agree with you DJ. People discuss the tyres, just not here and a million other things but since nobody visits the forum except the obvious few, it is useless debating something we all agree on. At every race meeting I tell people to go to the forum, that is where everything is discussed. People complain that nothing constructive gets said and asked to be removed, can we blame them for feeling that way? I will talk "insert choice word" (thanks Ototw) the whole day if I have the chance to do so but we have to cater for those who need information.
Some only log in to brouse the for sale section and the weekend results thread. That is their right and I want them to carry on doing so. Just maybe while you logged in, say something!!!!!!!!!!!! Even if it is; "what happened to the results?'
Let me explain what happened to the results. We are now using a pc that is in the container and the results don't come home anymore so impossible to post unless I remember to take my flashdrive along....like that's going to happen..We take a printed version home to do the points.
Anyway, we try to make racing as affordable to all as possible because we assume everyone is on a budget. Therefor the different classes. If the 17.5 and 13.5 will be to expensive or if TT01 is to cheap, voice your opinion. The alternative would be to race a class you can afford. I am not speaking on behalf of the committee at all so don't see it that way. It is my opinion and a logical one at that.

I agree with Ray and to my horror DJ as well. People need to feel like they are welcome here, but also be free to have their say. Never mind what is being posted, if the older guys ( Mr T ) share those years of experience somebody will be silently taking note. So keep the info coming. Maybe we can start off with Mr Tcab posting his mini setup ???

I like they way you think Snotspoed. Glad to see you back in action. Did you and the DJ kiss and make up? Very Happy Very Happy
Lets start with rubber setup:
First thing I guess is a spool? yak ga poe!!
maybe softer springs depending on your current chassis
please add here???????????????????????
