Reflex Racing Club Series

We have been working on the series for a while, read about it on its own blog page.

If you have any questions, post here. Please keep the conversation related to the series only, so as to build a good reference thread.

Hi Christian, how long do we have to get each six race series completed? Is there a minimum on the entries per series at our track? Thanks

Freakin' Awesome!!!

This is one of the best ideas I've seen yet for racing a series on a club level . I'll be talking it up at High Speed Hobbies this Thursday during our normal racing . Hopefully we'll be participating .

Love the idea!

One question... Our stock class have as limitation: 2wd, 70T hand out motor, and no VDS body... this 3 things are the limitations.. so we can see a cooper or porshe running against Lemans, if the racer choose it...

Can we still participate?

Well, the intention is to get the clubs out there and create a network that will promote each individual club. Our vision is to create an interactive network of sites that focuses on the local race results from week to week. We want to keep the focus on individual clubs first and foremost.

With that, I would say that there would have to be a 6 participant minimum to receive the 50 dollar gift certificate for the winner. But 3 participants is enough for the club to receive the discount/

The minimum amount of time to complete a series would be 6 weeks, since there is a maximum of 1 race date per week, per series.

Doug, before we can make a decision, try to convince your club to run a theme. Present them with the guidelines set forth by the series and see what they think. I am sure that given the prizes, you can probably all agree on a theme. Maybe the first series you run is Mini Cooper and later on you can run LM. Part of the whole series thing is to get those Autoscales off the shelf and on the track. Running purely standard classes is kind of what we are doing already. We want to do things a bit differently in order to get people excited about this, and hopefully increase participation.

Interesting concept, Cristian, running body-selective Stock classes. That's a good thing for spectators, a club could run multiple Stock races a night and change the bodies up every time to keep things interesting.

Overall looks like a good basic ruleset, I hope more clubs adopt it for non-RCP-based Mini-Z racing as well!

Brian, we thought that by having the specific theme races, we can appeal to more outsiders that can look at the different, cool 'Z bodies that got a very large group of racers into the scale in the first place. It's something different as well, so that might interest additional racers.

As for different classes on the same night. This would not be allowed under the current rule structure, but what could be instituted at a later point is that a race series for a club can run a different category at each series date. This would certainly have an IROC feel to it.

For me personally this is the strength of this series and something that should have been tried a long time ago by everyone, so kudos there...since it's noted additional themes can be created then if we did run the series locally i would like to see a vintage Porsche club race theme based on 86mm 934rsr bodies. back in 2007 one of the guys was running a solid red one for kicks in practice and wow, talk about killer cool.

I was thinking more on the lines of needing 7 weeks to complete a series because we use one Sat. a month to do the HFAY races.

CT, would it be permissable to run multiple classes per race night, but have only one chosen class count for the RRCS? Many tracks run more than one class already on a race night.

I will suggest this series to a few local tracks and see if there is interest.

All of the 3 major local tracks run complely different classes already... most dont fit the normal structure of stock GT, mod GT etc... I dont know if they would be willing to change the class structure much, but at least one class could fit the structure proposed in the blog.

EMU, you can run up to 2 simultaneous series at once. At the club level, at your track, you can run however many classes you want on a given night. 2 Max will be reflex sponsored. You many even run it as a 4th class at action if it's ok with Al. The main thing is that people get involved in the format and also on the website. I am more worried about developing the track-site network than anything else. Not only will it be self-promoting, but it will get the whole racing community more involved and tightly knit.

Mike, you can take however long you want to complete 6 races. If you want to do every other week or once a month, it is up to you guys. The reason there is a max once race per week is so that people don't try to knock out a race series per week or so. This would take away from the novelty and build up that can be created in between events.

A benefit that I could see is that at the end of the year, at least regionally, on different parts of the planet, clubs could host a race where there is a category for only Race Series champions as one of the classes. An "invitational" of sorts.

CT,

Kudos for a great idea and running with it.

MC3 will be running both a stock series and a mod series.

The guys have already decided we will all run 102mm LM configs and bodies for our Mod class. Most guys have already purchased R246 LiFe cells, cords and battery clips along with either Reflex's or PN's 70 turn motor. However some are going to use the NiMH option with any turn motor (i.e. Atomic T2/ PN 35 turn, etc...).

Combo rules (stock & mod) above series rules posted by Reflex above:

-tire warmers are allowed
-can run LM tires/rims
-gyros are allowed
-minimum 175g weight
-following motor tuning is allowed: Racers can break-in the bushings, change to silver brushes and shim the armature. No other mods are allowed

We felt by opening up rules a little would make good, fast racing.
