Had 2 questions on the Legends Class;
Is the SMC 4000 battery required or an option to a 4 cell NiMh (There are a few guy's here running the 4 cell packs)
Gearing is limited to Natl. rules (ex. only 21 or 22 pinion)

Sorry, 1 more Legend's question:
The Natl. rules state,"If it doesn't say you can do it - you can't!" It seems everyone adds weight, I couldn't find anywhere that say's it's OK and didn't see a max. weight rule?

The SMC 4000 battery is the only legal battery and yes the gear is limited to 81T spur and choice of either 21T or 22T pinion(48 pitch). There is no rule on the weight. The only deviation from the national rules is that the front wire steering linkage can be replaced with tie rods.
Should be a fun class and looking forward to seeing some new faces in this class. Remember that several of us have legend cars built and ready to run for anyone new that wants to run this class-they just have to come and race and pay the track entry fee.

There is a one time $10 fee per class, good for the entire season and then just pay whatever the host track entry fees are.
If I decide I want to switch classes, do I need to pay the $10 again, or not, since I'd still only be in one class?

What will the total entry fee be at Beaver on the 30th?

Oh - sorry...got one more question: anybody got a good starting point for rollout for Beaver (17.5 Sportsman Truck <Blinky> or 17.5 Stock <non-blinky>)?

Need some help getting faster if anyone wants to help....running Tekin RSPro, Thunder Power 17.5 (red rotor, or whatever comes with the motor), got some different spur gears to try...

To signup for a class in the tour it is $10 per class. None transferable.

It will be $10 one time per class due to HCOT and whatever John charges for track fees at the race. Not to sure what that will be but I would plan on between $10-$15 for first class and usually $5 for additional classes. I can verify this and post in the race announcement post in a few days.

As for gearing I really don't have any exact info, plus I do not run Thunder power motors. Maybe 3.6 plus/minus in open and 4.2 plus/minus in truck... But this can vary depending on your setup, motor timing and esc timings(in open)

HCOT 2012/2013 Race #1

The Raceway in Beaver
1216 4th Street
Beaver PA 15009

Practice:

Saturday September 29th
Doors open 5pm till 9pm maybe 10pm
Practice timing only
$5.00 Flat Fee per person

Sunday September 30th
Doors open at 8:30

3 heats and a Main
$15.00 Flat Fee all you can race


SXT, Jack the Gripper or Sticky Fingers Traction Compound Only

If you are running Sportsman Truck, Late Model or are a new racer in Legend you will need to see Rick L or my self to have a seal placed on your Spec batteries, they must be out of the car.

Some important points to remember about the rules in the spec classes, Sportsman Truck uses World GT tires, Late Model or Legends class can use any Spec tire with stripe in the foam. Both Late Model and Truck can use the Mamba ESCs with software v1.26 and Tekin ESCs with software v2.23 and be in spec blinky mode.

Let's go racin'!

See everyone Saturday and/or Sunday.​

Got a question for the boys on here. I have been looking at world gt tires and have noticed that crc sells tires that look identical to bsr's, but the stripe is blue instead of purple.

Would these tires be considered legal?
