Once again I come up with another spec race. Rules are the same or similar as the megane race.

Trp mosler mt900 R body only
Any 1/28 scale chassis example MRCG 1.1
Weight limit 180 grams
No electronic limit
130 brushed motors only but no limit on turn and U can open the motor if desired. So the sky is the limit.

If ANYONE has ANY suggestions PLEASE SPEAK UP! These rules are not yet set in stone.

i like the idea.

can you give me a run down on the body requirements? i have not followed the trp stuff for awhile.

The windsheild and windows required. Spoiler and other parts optional. And since I allow a wide option as far as 1/28 scale chassis goes, there won't be a wheel standard. Trimming is also allowed since these bodies haven't come out yet, I don't know if the wheels that come with this body rub or not or how well it fits on a chassis. Its a 98mm body and runs +2 fronts and +3 rears.

I've got 2 test the mosler body the past couple saturdays and no issues as far as clearance and quality even on an MR015. Handles well and the wheels that come with it do not rub. I'm thinking of running this body 4 HFAY. I change the weight limit 2 175 grams. I really need 2 know who wants 2 do this race so I can set up a date and place 2 do this.

I'm down for what ever. I have the body just put out the motor options. I'm guessing with no limit in electronics we should pick a hot motor.

I was thinking either PN 43 or 39 turn motors. These as far as I know should be fet safe with 2.4ghz pcb's stock fets.

The address to Awesome RC is

2885 Warrenton Road
Fredericksburg, VA 22406

I would say its an hour 2 an hour and a half north of richmond. A little more north is hobbyworks in fairfax where Washington DC GTG also races. I don't know the address but check the Washington DC GTG threads 4 the address there. A little more north and there is remnant racing. Don't know the address there either but there should be a link in the Washington DC GTG forums or they should have there own section in clubs and GTG. Look up Mike Keely here on the forums about remnant <hope I'm spelling it right mike:o:o racing club. And talk 2 arch2b about Washington DC GTG racing.

It's actually not far off 95. Very easy to get to from 95. I sometimes takes the back roads to avoid the whole northern va mixing bowl area which is almost always a mess.

I think I'll just leave the motor option open 4 now. Unfortunetly the owner of the hobby shop has decided 2 use the mini z room 4 catering big outdoor events:( so I need 2 talk 2 him 2 figure out a date. But the room finally got A/C so thats good news. I'm thinking september at the moment, I'll keep everyone posted.

16 October does not conflict with outdoor events and there are no rain dates set for that day either so I'm liking the 16th. Need to pickup a Mosler body.

Ray, it will be good to see you again.

Me and Bill normally get there around 10:30 or so. No rush though, it looks like there will only be 5 of us total so getting the race done will be no problem. Remember your giroz transponder.

Also, I found out a few days ago that the store owner is going to start charging 5 bucks a day to use the track. No big deal really since hes let us race there for free for over a year just thought I'd give everybody a heads up.

I put down a new layout before I left last week but I think I'm going to change it when I get there to something a little better for this race.

See you guys tomorrow.

it was good to get down to awsome rc again and hang out with you guys. unfortunately, i was never able to get the spin-out out of my car but i did the best i could with it. i was happy with my main performance which was far better than that of the heats for me.

lets not loose the momentum and get a series going. i'll start a new thread for it and link to it from all the local clubs.
