Lots of entries so far considering it only went online at midnight last night - so keep em' coming guys.

For those wanting to do TRUCK I might make a seperate form (too late to edit that one / can't be bothered lol) for it - or give you an email address to send your details to.

10-02-2009, 09:01 PM
Should we be getting a comfirmation email??:confused:

Mike Hudson
10-02-2009, 09:17 PM
if i remember last we either didn't get one or it was much more near to the time of the meeting as there will be many yet to book in and heat listing made etc

jimmy
10-02-2009, 09:28 PM
If the form said anything other than 'your form has been submitted' - then you're not in!!!! :lol: Seriously though - I can send you an email at the time but it's exactly the same as seeing the on-screen confirmation I'm afraid.

The only person who can tell you 100% that you are confirmed is the person doing the booking in and sorting the heat lists. But like I said, as long as it didn't say something like '404 error, your entry was screwed up' then your details ARE with the Batley officials.

Matt Alcock
10-02-2009, 09:53 PM
could somebody link me to some rules on the event etc??

or tell me what they are

cheers

Mike Hudson
10-02-2009, 10:03 PM
was sure I saw rules on here somewhere but can't find them, it's just the usual rules you'd find at a regional meeting tbh, lipos are allowed aslong as there hardcased and taken care of etc. and the rest of usual stuff, in previous years they've used round by round qualifying so i guess thats going to stay the same?

Matt Alcock
10-02-2009, 10:17 PM
control tire??

Mike Hudson
10-02-2009, 10:30 PM
schumacher yellow compound minipins/minispikes are the popular tyre choice there, don't think there has ever been a control tyre for this event as these are the only two tyres that work the best on their hall surface and carpet i think

Matt Alcock
10-02-2009, 11:00 PM
cheers, im a newb to 2wd.

used to racing outdoors with big stuff and a engine!!!:lol:

Matt Alcock
10-02-2009, 11:17 PM
can i run lipos?

Mike Hudson
10-02-2009, 11:51 PM
it was said lipos are allowed :thumbsup:

Matt Alcock
10-02-2009, 11:57 PM
cool, should see you there.

make your selves known so i can put some names to faces, don't know anyone off the 2wd drive scene really.

the batley sports hall was only available for the dates they've said from what i've heard so they can't change dates, correct me if wrong

march the 1st :confused:

March 1st is a club meet and I understand the hall is only available to 3pm.

Im booking in for this, both classes.. :thumbsup:

Because we will be changing the date for the March Bury meet to 8th March .. because we are good like that..

I hope its appreciated that we will change, plus Bury members WILL be supporting your meet.

As has been said before.. clubs should talk to each other.

I appreciate you only had certain dates to choose at your venue. This is why we published our dates when we did to avoid dates clashing and also why we have published the 2009/2010 dates now so hopefully other clubs will notice this. I have to say Bury is getting quite a following.. another Worksop in the making!

Looking forward to the Supercup now..

Cheers

Nick
:thumbsup:

Medders
12-02-2009, 04:13 PM
Great stuff :D Is the 8th March the regional though?

Did you talk to Batley when setting the dates for 09/10 :confused:

Thinking ahead, and not that its much to do me anyway, how about Bury / Batley liaise before setting their summer dates so us racers can then support both clubs with hopefully larger regular meetings?

No probs..

No we didn talk to Batley about 2009/2010 dates, but im sure they can be fine tuned.. (this is why they have been announced so early so hopefully other clubs can work with us :D ) ive already been in touch with Muzzy so i know the dates we have published DONT clash with Worksop..

With regards to a summer series... that sounds like a plan! I would drop Roger (theracecontroller) a pm/email..

Cheers

Is that supposed funny??

If you remember mate you were supposed to get back to our club with some info re: regionals, dates and if we could join and hold one.. and guess what you didnt!?

The 2009/10 dates are provisional dates for the indoor series... as i said can be fine tuned..

Batley as a club have done no meets over this winter up until now, so didnt realise i had to ask your permission?

tomorrow and the other club meeting on 1st should be good practice for it and to remember how to get the cars set up for the hall. Must be about 9 months since we last raced there :cry:

Gurdy,

any space in the car with you? I'm not keen on the idea of driving all the way up there in the Mini and it's all I will have available! It's about 45 mins drive north for me to get to you + waht you have to do.

don't know if it has already been covered but what lipo rules is the event running to? do we have to use cells from the 2009 list or not??

sorry if it has already been covered in the thread.

DaveG28
28-02-2009, 01:04 AM
was sure I saw rules on here somewhere but can't find them, it's just the usual rules you'd find at a regional meeting tbh, lipos are allowed aslong as there hardcased and taken care of etc. and the rest of usual stuff, in previous years they've used round by round qualifying so i guess thats going to stay the same?

Hopefully the rules are as that, I don't think the saddle Lipo I am buying for the season will be available in time for this meeting, so if its only 2009 cells I'll have to cancel :cry::cry:

Can anyone confirm??

jimmy
28-02-2009, 01:12 AM
I don't think we want people turning up with 2 motors and AA duracells and dominating the meeting. But using 2008/9 spec cells at the Supercup I have to ask if anyone cares - if they do then we'll just have to have words with them and run 08 cells anyway, because thats all I have also.

Wouldn't worry about it.;)

matdodd
28-02-2009, 01:15 AM
So do I at the min!

DaveG28
11-03-2009, 12:01 AM
All I have is TP saddle packs that aren't 08 or 09 legal, no sign of legal cells yet! Someone just let me know if it's a problem and I'll head to Bury instead, otherwise all good!

May have already asked this (couldn't find it if so tho!) but is there mains power or do we need to bring 12v batteries? Pretty certain I remember we needed our own tables/chairs last year?

Dave

Mike Hudson
11-03-2009, 12:07 AM
you'll need your own tables/chairs but mains power is available :thumbsup: it's just run to relaxed regional rules i think as almost nobody has 2009 legal cells and its not a brca sactionaed event so shooudn't be of concern :), don't worry about your tp cells from last year Dave they should be fine to use as long as your car is above the minimum brca legal weight ;) many people were using them at the regional at batley on sunday, so long as you take care when charging etc

Northy
11-03-2009, 08:57 AM
Just so people know, Steve has asked me to bring the NE scales and box, so your car must be atleast minimum weight (and the scales were checked last week), and the right size to fit in the box.

I'd have thought any hard cased lipo would be fine though.

G

super__dan
11-03-2009, 09:38 AM
Yeah, I don't represent the club but any hard cased Lipo should be fine.

telboy
11-03-2009, 09:56 AM
So using TP3200 lipo in an X6, how much weight should I be using?
Not got any scales here.

Lee
11-03-2009, 09:58 AM
You probably wont need any Tel, im sure mine was ok with no weight added when using the 3200

Northy
11-03-2009, 10:13 AM
Weight was catching a lot of people out last Sunday..... be careful.

The scales will be there for people to check their cars as soon as I get there (~8am).

G

Mike Hudson
11-03-2009, 10:16 AM
what happens for the truck class? Think there abit big for the box and don't know of any minimum weight for them? :woot:

super__dan
11-03-2009, 01:07 PM
Tel, need or should?

The team is working round a front rear weight distribution of 35%/65% so I'd weight it up and over this. I have a set of scales and a board to do this easily. Come see me on Sunday morning with your car and some weights!

Richard Lowe
11-03-2009, 06:02 PM

Trucks are 1700g BRCA/ROAR, 1770g EFRA I think Mike :)

We have never scrutineered at the supercup in previous years, but just relied on people to be sensible and sportsmanlike.
I hope this will continue this year also, (especially as I have no intention of sitting half the day weighing and measuring other peoples cars;):lol:)

Northy
12-03-2009, 09:08 AM
OK John, but I have been asked to bring the box and scales...... that's all I'm saying.

Maybe you guys should talk together in private about such matters? :confused::confused:

I agree it was never really and issue in the past with everyone running cells, but we had a lot of underweight cars last Sunday with lipo...... :o

I agree with you too G, rules are there to keep it fair and even. All I'm suggesting is from my (not the club as a whole's) point of view, is keep it simple and friendly, that has worked very well before.

Perhaps a few random checks to ensure no one is taking the P**S might be the best of both worlds?? However, that will ultimately be the clubs decision.
