back to the size and layout most dont have the blanks and space for them i think most who bought rcp have either 96 tile or got 2 wide L or a combination of both
as far as opening it up to 1:18 i think the rcp track standard is too small for racing on unless you get the blank tiles i think we should keep it to 1:2?
and are there enough mini-x - dtm - kawanda and drr out there to make a class
mabey include them in the open class like the bring what you have

you can see images of my track layout here. its based on the kyosho reccomended layout number 1 with avrious track times from the kyosho website.

you could coordinate the track layout search with rcp's trak layout db which he is developing.

regarding local tracks etc, there is an ongoing thread here with which you could coordinate the grassrootes effort to build support and locations for local tracks, clubs and shops.

i hope to get an m18 next year so i'll definatley be into the 1/18 then

Spoon has been working on a track directory that might be helpful, here's the link;

http://home.earthlink.net/~jamesgist/trackdirectory.htm

I'd really like to have our club participate if we can get the equipment together. A 15X20 layout will fit in my driveway and I could have pit tables set up in the garage, so maybe I could accomodate enough racers.

I feel left out... if it is a open tournament, then why have only USA? At least include Canada

Twenty Se7en.. I see no reason to leave out Canada... If you guys have the equipment to put on a race, you should be in.

"Classes will include: Box Stock, Super Stock, Open Sedan (no electronic upgrades), Unlimited Sedan (bring it if you can drive it FETS Pro-Z and all)
And an open F1 class (no electronics upgrades)"

I personally don't think the iwaver should be in box stock, super stock or open sedan class. The iwaver has a different circuit board with fets that allow more power into the stock motors and open class.

The unlimited class the only rules should be length width and the number of cells.

You would allow a Pro-Z but not an Iwaver.

I would allow Proz with the same circuit board as the mini z for open and super stock.

If you are going to allow iwaver in stock and open then you might as well
let any electronics you can find. Spy, XXL and any servo. If you want a fair class
then the cars must follow the same rules. Iwaver didn't follow the rules.

Iwaver in unlimited class would be fine because it has different fets.

But many Pro-Zs have different servos and such ... unless you are saying that you would only allow a stock Pro-Z... if there is such a thing. I understand what you are getting at though.

There should just be parameters. Use ROAR and NORRCA as models.

i agree with crotty. the fact that the iw's have upgraded fets gives them a performance advantage right out of the box. i would venture a guess that most pro-z cars use the stock 01 electronics and not aftermarket stuff. i plan to get a kit and use 02 pcb with 01 servo box

A stock pro-z would have the mr01 or mr02 circuit board.

The servo makes no difference. The mr01 servo is different then the mr02 in looks only. Most servos work the same way. The HS-50 servo from hitec can work with the mini z circuit board by just removing the HS-50 electronic guts and wiring the POT and servo motor direct.
