So that we all have plenty of notice we will be running to the 2014 BRCA rules and included in these rules are the rules governing Batteries and Motors therefore at regional events Batteries and motors have to be shown on the EB list (Rules 24 & 25) found on the BRCA website which we will have a list of at each event and will also be checking the voltage as they do at all national events.

There is no movement in this rule as it is for the safety of all those involved and is just as important as using a LIPO sack to charge your batteries in.

Just to add to this, and hold my hands up, as the post above might come as a bit of surprise...

This clarification of the rules comes as a result of what I thought was a pretty safe post on daft thread elsewhere on oOple.

After my post I was contacted directly by the BRCA offroad section (and that doesn't mean Martin!) and told that my understanding of the rule book was incorrect.

So...since my (bad :blush:) understanding of the rules has been reinforced by my experience of racing in regionals over the last few years, it would appear that the regions I, and a lot of others, have raced in have not been following the BRCA rule book properly previously.

Although the racing has always still felt fair without this, and been great fun previously, I'm looking forward to having the racing and organisation raised to the regional and national standard as it should be...Voltmeter, EB lists, scales and box at the ready then! :woot:

Maybe a silly question. I'm aware of the BRCA requirement for batteries, which I can understand I guess but the original post mentions motors aswell.

I can see a list here: http://www.brca.org/content/homologation-lists-2014-updates/14218

I assume its under Modified Brushless Motors. So are we saying anything that isnt on that list as also a no go?

Regionals have to be run under BRCA rules so we can't pick and choose which ones we would like to or want to use so yes we will be using the motor list as a guide because if we did not image if halfway through the season someone was found to be using a motor not on the list it would open a very big can of worms so that is why the rules are in place and we will be sticking to them the best that we can so if there is ever a problem we can ALL just refer back to that little book we all get when becoming BRCA members.:thumbsup:
