So I can race the prototype LRP? Or the unavailable Tekin software? I am also holding one of the few Novak GTB with timing advance. Is this OK?
Maybe I can disguise my Advance to look like a LRP SXX? You can bet the LRP and Tekin are working on new controllers. You can bet these guys will be disguising their new product to look like "legal" speedos, and you will be letting those go stright through tech. But the available Mamba at $135 and the available Advance are not going through tech. Oh, and what about my $80 dollar EZ Run controller? I have a Losi ESC is that legal?

For now.. in the 17.5 stock classes, rather than banning speedo's, why don't you set a rule where ALL controllers need to be on setting 1 (little or no timing). On the Mamba, you can shut off the CHEAT Mode. On the Advanced, setting one is normal speed. LRP, Novak and Tekin all have a "standard" no timing setting. The cars are too fast anyway.

This rule should only be applied to sportsman, stock racing. Let the other clases run what they want.

You say, "tech will be a nightmare"... Well if you tech properly for non-available software, you will need a laptop and a Hotwire anyway.

Banning of products is un-American.

Actually if you are going to have this race double as the warm up race for the grand slam race maybe you should think about what chicky and the guys have already stated, that the Mamba and Advanced speedo's will be allow for the third race at Tri-State. I don't know, just a thought.

ok frank i dont need the same post you gave scotty. drop it. i am doing it to protect the integrity of the club guys. the guys that keep us open. for the negs we are allowing them based on chicky's rules. i have nothing against the speedo its just that i have to look out for the people in my area and do whats best for them above all else. i salivate over the AE speedo. its dialed and i cant wait to get one. so its not like i think its cheating. if its wrong i dont want to be right

???? We have had a good following of 1/12 scale lately. C'mon and race with us, if no one is racing 17.5 then I will lend you a 13.5 motor. Usually we run 13.5 or mod!

What would be a good gearing for a 13.5 Novak motor in a Carpet Knife 3.2R for your track? I would be running 4200 NiMh packs.

Not quite sure on that one...........Why not just bite the bullet and purchase a lipo? :thumbsup: A lot less maintenance, you only need one or two packs and most racers can help with set-up information. :) Just better in the long run. If I was to guess on gearing/rollout I would say 3.0 rollout. Just a guess however. :freak:

Thanks for the response Eli. I'm just taking a few weeks off from off road while the Winter Midwest goes on at CRCRC. I don't wanna buy a Lipo for just a few weeks of carpet. If the new carpet track here in Columbus is any good then I'll buy a new Calandra car and a whole bunch of Lipo's. It looks like I need some sort of cheater speedo too! Cool....
