~~~RCC Speed Shootout!~~~
 
Well we all love crawling here but after awhile at 3 mph we all enjoy some tire ballooning speed to mix things up.:twisted:
So im putting on a little online showdown. A speed shootout!
<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

<o:p></o:p>
Classes are as shown on the flyer. Sportsman, Pro Stock, Pro Mod, and Rock crawler classes must all be full bodied 4 wheeled, electric RC vehicles powered by its wheels. No tether cars, rockets, ducted fans etc.
<o:p></o:p>
The Sportsman, Pro Stock, and Pro Mod classes can be any style chassis, suspension, driveline, wheels/tires etc, with the appropriate power system for its class.
<o:p></o:p>
However the Rock Crawler class is a little different. It must be 4wd during its speed passes, and have solid axles front and rear (TLT, Axial, WheelyKing, TwinForce, Losi, Venom, berg, RockForce, etc),. It must also run a rock crawler style body. (i.e. no touring cars, high down force, short course, ect.) No motor limit, no battery limit, no wheel and tire limit, no esc limit, etc. However you may not run more than 2 motors and 2 escs.


<o:p></o:p>
Winning runs must be proven with the entire run on video with a GPS unit or radar, and on flat ground. On board telemetry is not accepted. (Spectrum Telemetry System, onboard mph gauges, etc too inaccurate because of calibration needed.)
Were trying to keep this a simple fun contest. Not 20 pages of rules, use common sense as to the intended limits etc. Myself and Jason will be watching the build threads and anyone caught trying to exploit loopholes, we hold the right to add more rules as cheaters appear. Play fair folks. It’s for fun.
<o:p></o:p>
All entrants must have been signed up on RCC as a member on or before April 10<SUP>th</SUP> 2009, and also must be a current star holding member.
<o:p></o:p>
All entrants must have a build thread in the speed section that is updated at least weekly. Previously built vehicles not accepted, must be at least a 50% new build.
<o:p></o:p>
You may enter up to 2 classes. But you cannot use the same vehicle. Chassis, suspension, drive train, wheels/tires, and body must all be different. Please post the class you intend to enter in the title or first post of your build thread.


Deadline for all Video Entries is November 22<SUP>nd</SUP> 2009 at Midnight.

I've got an E-Flite 160 and some 10S lipos. Wonder if they'll fit in the XXX-S? :evil:

I've already started mocking up my Rock Crawler class rig. I am going to win the title of Worlds Fastest Rock Crawler.

I'm excited!

Shoei1 10-09-2009 11:40 PM

Is there a Wheel base limit for the Crawler class? Need to know before I start design my chassis.

You haven't seen HB run his drag cars. He needs a full size runway to get to speed. :mrgreen:

could probably get a pretty good run out of that at freddies.. to bad its cold out here and traction is gone anyone up north is probably gonna have a hard time competing this time of year..

STANG KILLA SS 10-11-2009 08:11 PM

yeah that was discussed in the vendors section. like i said this is a feeler event. the 2nd annual event will be summer time to be more fair to the northern idiots that live with that white stuff :lmao: j/king

hmmm, might have to dig out my old parma pan car i had done some preliminary work to turn it into a 12 cell drag car. was planning this simple with a brushed motor and microswitch. too bad there is no nitro class, ive been thinking about building a twin .28 drag car with a proper 4 link rear suspention, this would have been the motivation i needed to get started.

hmmm, re-reading that i had to be on the forums since april, guess im disqualified before i even start. oh well, mabey ill build the electric car and throw the video up anyways

RedBetta 10-13-2009 04:18 PM

That's the spirit!

dezfan 10-13-2009 04:27 PM

As this is the RCC Speed Shootout, there will be a jump located at some point of the run correct?:twisted:
