I hope that you get the opportunity to race at one of our nationals as of course a number of us have enjoyed the Belgian GP.

Lets hope that the weather is kind for us all.

Please contact me should you wish to take up the offer of testing at EPR on your way to Stotfold.

It will be good to see you guys again, can you drag Elvo across with you ;)

Also if its dry there is similar crazy grip like Kampenhout :woot:

@Matt
We drive on fridaymorning when wether is fine. My son told me about you both met at the EC. We'll contact y when we have the entry. Would be fun to meet at EPR in the afternoon. Can we stay overnight somewhere?

@Oldtimer
There is a Belgian-dutch national same weekend as Stotfold....Bruno was hesitating to come with us ...but has the chance now to win a national and claim a 2und place overall:drool::drool::drool:....
See Elvo next week; I'll try again to take him with us. Would be fun to be on the road with the four of us!

I will be at work on Friday and then going across to Stotfold in the evening but the sports ground where the EPR track is located will be open from the morning until late at night. Are you needing somewhere to park the camper up on the Thursday night or Friday night or are you looking for a hotel, etc?

Stotfold is about one and a half hours from EPR. I know that space for caravans at Stotfold is limited but if you post your plan and intentions on this site, I am sure that people here will be able to help you out.

Hi Igor, I hope Simon and Wouter do get an entry. But you should still come over anyway, especially if the weather forecast isn't wet, there is ofcause the chance of somebody not turning up without giving any notice.

Hi all,

Can you guys give us some info on what tyres to use when it's dry/wet? So we don't buy compounds that are never used (the tyres are useless to us afterwards). Maybe also inserts, would a losi firm be ok (maybe cut in width a bit) or do you need something special?

I guess batteries are about the same rules as the euros? And motors? We're driving a CS brushless motor with a sintered rotor.

What are the rules about practise before the race weekend? As I see you only get 2x2 mins of practise on the race day :-)

Thanks,

wouter

Don't forget the motor cleaner for the wasps ;)

Hi Wouter,

For tyres its yellow schumacher mini spikes in the dry and Green in the wet. In 2wd you may want staggers in the dry if you have too much grip. For inserts i use the Edit purples everywhere, you just need something fairly soft to help it through the bumps. I'me sure there will be some for sale at the track.

The list of approved cells motors etc should be the same/similar to the Efra list. Have a look on http://www.brca.org/

The last club meeting is this wednesday evening as the track has to be closed for 1 week prior to the event. Unfortunatley 2 x 3 minutes is the only practice you will get. There are a lot of drivers coming here that will only have raced once before so you won't be the only ones to have to learn quick.

Hope you make it throught the reserve list!

Our next batch of X6's should be ripe for picking in the next few days Niggs, with new aero dynamically symetric shaped wings as standard.

Kev, pay attention lad, the end of a very important B final can give some amusing entertainment if you look in the right places........

I assume you didn't manage to get it in our new septic tank? that may put a few people off ramping the wall now :D

Thanks for the quick replies :-)

In the front (2wd), do you use slim mini spikes glued on a wide wheel, or the normal mini spikes?

When do you use the ballistics then? Or is it just not that great on this track?

Get and X6 conversion on it :thumbsup:

X-what? Hu? I went from fireblade to XXX to B4, don't want to break that positive curve :D

slim minispikes on 2wd glued on the normal b4 wide wheel.

Ballistics just don't work as well on this astro as schueys. They will work ok but given the choice just stick with schumachers.

Wouter, CS motor could be an issue for you - as we have an aproaved motor list in UK, and these have never been imported into UK, and hence not on our list.

Thanks matt, you're right: http://www.brca.org/BRCA/elecboard/news/Brushless%20motors%20(Modified).pdf
Same problem for simon as he just sold all his brushed motors and bought CS brushless...

Guess I will be using my brushed motor again then :-) Might be a problem too, as it's a corally can more than 5 years old, in which I just replaced the rotor every now and then. But these rotors are also quite old :-)

Damn, cells are a problem too! Me and simon both have nosram cells, which are also not on the list (altough exactly the same as the lrp equivalents).

Haha we might need some help when we get there!

niggs98
11-08-2008, 08:21 AM
cells wont be a problem as i use the nosram equivalent of what is on the list as well, so do all the nosram drivers. might be worth emailing paul worsley about your motors to see what you can and cant run.

Chris Doughty
11-08-2008, 09:13 AM
with regard the cells, I believe that the 'cell' is the thing that is homologated, and the LRP or NOSRAM versions are just the 'matchers' that match them, they both match VTEC cells

hope that makes sense...

but like they said, email Paul Worsley to clarify important technical things like this

I have novak brushless motor's you could loan ( or the magnet zapper :wub, if you're using brushed)

Wouter, from memory without looking, all the corally brushed stuff is fine. The others have said about cells - again ok, it's the VTEC cell that is listed and submitted. Matcher not important.

Darren Boyle
11-08-2008, 12:00 PM
Kev, oh that septic tank!!! Didnt know it was there until after I hit the ramp mate. Lucky I missed, Niggs spotted the car hangin about 6 foot up in the tree behind it!!! There was a lot of frustration put into that ramp launch you know, terrible day for me.......LOL

Nathan, the E-speed yellow version of the aero wing is still in a proto-type stage, it will be available to all willing septic tank jumpers free of charge upon request!!!

Ha da's goei nieuws :-) Laat maar open vijzen, die motor is niks anders dan GM en Orion voor zover ik weet.

Ik heb hier nog 2 sets mini spikes gevonden, misschien eens gaan rijden op mbv met die banden, aangezien ze zeggen dat Stotfold heel vergelijkbaar is.

2 sets should be enough for each class, if not there will be shops on site with ample suplies of the correct tyres for you and is they run out there will be people there who will always help you out

Hi all,

Some more questions! Is power available at the track, or should we have car battery or power generator (can be a problem since we have to travel with 3 persons in one car including all our gear)?

Transponders, do we need a PT or are there handouts available? (don't have a PT, if anyone sells one at the national, I'm interested :-)

Thanks,

wouter

there are handouts at the meeting so you will be fine there.

there is no power source other than what people bring them selves so bring a generator to kepp yourselfs going. im not sure if shops hold the pt,s as a stock item so perhaps thay can comment on that
