Track News – February 2017:
702 RC Raceway will be closed February 5, 2017. This is a temporary closure date only, not permanent. We will continue with our regular scheduled Sunday Funday on February 12, 2017.
VTA – All VTA rules posted will be regulated.
Formula 1 – We’ve decided that motor rules will be regulated per ROAR rules. At the start of our F1 program last year, the hobby had just went from 21.5 motors to 25.5 motors and we didn’t have many ROAR approved motors to choose from. So, we allowed any motor to run as long as it was a 25.5 with a 12.3 rotor. With the introduction of our VTA program, it’s time to also regulate the motors for the F1’s. The manufacturers are submitting more 25.5 motors for ROAR approval, so there will be more and more of them to choose from . We do understand that the changeover to ROAR approved motors will take a financial commitment and that some of the ROAR approved motors are not yet available, therefore, on March 1, 2017 every F1 must have a ROAR approved motor. However, please note, for your points to count in the Super Saturday On Road race series, you must have a ROAR approved motor for that race.
1/12 Scale Pan Car – With the installation of the new sub-floor, our 1/12 scale program has started to grow. After talking to a lot of the racers involved, it has been decided to use a Spec tire to keep cost down and make the racing more competitive. These tires will be CRC’s 1/12 purple stripe spec front (cln2230) and (cln2232) for rear. Again, we’re concerned with the initial cost of a Spec tire, with some racers already having foam tires procured for the class. With that in mind, we have set a date of March 1, 2017 to have all 1/12 scale cars using the Spec tire. We will not require spec tires for the February races, as the tires have nothing to do with ROAR rules, only track rules.
All rules will be posted by the Tech Inspection Station at the track.
Please remember if you have any questions, they can be directed and answered by staff or any board member.
