Don't forget all 1/10 trucks will be welcome as well as the SC10s

Shall we get the ball rolling at the WRCA in Talywain by saying box standard with a 10.5 or 13.5 ??

Standard Wheels/Tyres
Standard Shocks
No extra weight ??

What's our thoughts?? If there are any other trucks as in T4 etc so what highest placed SC10 wins :D

Ben Turner
14-07-2009, 02:43 PM
Sounds good to me, count me in! 10.5 motor and standard tyres. Dont think there is a massive amount to be gained from restricting anything else, and it becomes hard to police.

Nice one ben !!

Does that mean you have a boot full of lead :D

10.5 and standard Tyres is a great start I reckon

peetbee
14-07-2009, 03:17 PM
Scott, as the WRCA regionals are open to all trucks you may well end up having to run with others (including my Losi).

So unless you are volunteering to scrutineer the SC10s, there are no restrictions other than the usual BRCA regulations applicable to regionals!

If entrants let me know in advance what truck they will be running I will try to sort out the heats appropriately.

In terms of points scoring, that's a matter for the WRCA to decide.

This sort of talk isn't as much fun as the racing is it?!

DCM
14-07-2009, 03:19 PM
well, the WRCA doesn't have to keep a points tally, as there is no 'class' to qualify for, with trucks, at the moment, and is much more a ad hoc class.

Ben Turner
14-07-2009, 03:20 PM
This sort of talk isn't as much fun as the racing is it?!

I cant think of much which is as much fun as SC10 racing! I think the way the class will be run depends on how many people turn up, would be nice to have a few heats of competitive racing though.

Ben

14-07-2009, 03:34 PM
Completely understand the other Trucks and there being no rules as it's an open class.

To be honest Pete don't think anyone is entering this class with points in mind all about fun and if we can get the SC10 drivers which are attending to all have same cars it will only enhance the fun but that's only my opinion. Completely agree that driving them is more fun than talking about them but unless you know of somewhere on a Tuesday afternoon running electric trucks I'm going to have to make do :D

14-07-2009, 03:45 PM
Think you may have taken this sentence wrong way Pete


What's our thoughts?? If there are any other trucks as in T4 etc so what highest placed SC10 wins

This wasn't meant as in wins class, but as in the fun between SC10/Slash short coarse trucks. Which are completely different from the competitive trucks. Obviously we are all goin to race together and have a ball but when Lukes 5.5T truck goes down the straight I'd like to have someone else with a 10.5 that I can just clip the ass end of :D

Peace mate !!

Why is everyone trying to lock it down to sc10's only!!! It's open trucks. I understand saying either 2wd or 4wd truck but one make only is nuts!!!
It's like saying you can only drive a B4 in 2wd buggy...

Nobody is trying to lock anything down to anything. Simply a few SC10 owners having a little chat about running same kit for the WRCA to have a bit of fun !!

The comment about the B4 was shit, are you for real. Can't believe there is such a fuss being made !! Grow up :D

I think, the jist is, to have a CORR Pro truck class, and an open truck class, as you can't really compete a CORR Pro truck against an RC10T in full race setup.

Just to clarify, it is an open truck class at Talywain. Any 1/10 electric truck is eligible.

If the SC10 runners within that class want to come to some sort of agreement regarding spec, that's great, but they'll still be running with the other trucks.


Hopefully see you there

millzy
20-07-2009, 11:42 AM
I have to say that my understanding was that as its and open class that any motor could be run- my plan was to run an 8.5 to start and then chuck in a 5.5 for a laff- as thats whats its for a laff

if motor rules come in to play i think it will spoil the hole thing

there is no motor rules in 2wd or 4wd and that works fine

READ THE FREAKIN THREAD YA MUPPETS!!!!!

There are no rules for the truck class because the truck class is an unofficial class. Truck class is a support class for the WRCA series, it therefore counts for absoloutly nothing!

Scott is suggesting that those people who are choosing to run SC10s in this open Truck class have a gentlemans agreement to run to some predetermined specs so that the cars are equally matched. At the end of the day you can run whatever the hell you like, just don't complain if you don't win Pete's choccies :lol:

Many thanks to everyone who braved the weather and came along today.
Sorry we had to cut the day short, but it was excellent and many thanks to Talywain for the use of their track.

Talywain will be holding another round of the WRCA regionals soon, more information will follow, if you fancy making a return trip with their SC10s!

I dont race electric at the moment (x6 sq build pending:D), just nitro, but just wanted to say the truck class was brilliant fun to watch yesterday at Taly & it looked like the drivers as well as spectators were really enjoying it, cant think of a more suitable 'support class' to get people interested in our sport.

I like the idea, but once again the build quality lets it down.

If only the up and down ramps of all the bits of track were somewhere near level all the way accross that could be an amazing track, as it is it is pot luck what happens once you go airborn, much like the straight, such a shame.

I really think that track could be a really good 10th circuit and an even better 1/8th circuit, but not unless it is built with 10th in mind.

dude- you knew the state of the track befor the meeting was held
why come online ans say the same crap that was said back in May?-

im not coming on line telling the world and his dog what the plans are for tally over and over again.

The straight and the jumps have been mentioned over and over- to the pont where i knew it would be brought up at the regional - and knowing a few it will get said at club on friday

its reasons like this why ithe wrca is never going to improve - we get a national style track and insted of supporting it it gets slagged off by the drivers in its region

giving it was buit by 5 people i think its a bloody good job

This was my 1st venture to the track and my 1st non (local) club event in many many years and I thought it was an awesome track driving my sc10 round. sure grip was low and it was hard to drive at times, but that was half the fun.

It's off road at the end of the day. if you want smooth things buy a touring car :lol:

I had such a laugh driving and had a really good time. well done to the track builders and everyone else involved in the event.

I managed that, a few times, but it was a matter of gathering momentum rather than accelerating, there was quite a few aborted run-ups as the rear broke loose!!! hehe, god these trucks can take some abuse!!! Got some mods in mind now, to get traction better.

As for the moaners, i think its a class venue (with the £3.50 full english :drool:) and now i realise its only just about 30mins from me ill be going there more often. Think it was run well despite the weather and everyone messing race control about with pt numbers :blush: Yes there was a few bumps, but every track has its traits and features, im an onroad convert, but i still enjoyed driving it :D.

The problem running in the wet, isn't so much, the mud, it is the bearings, you don't get to them fast, and they start to sieze pretty fast!! I had one diff bearing on the way in the SC10, and two wheel bearings in the 4WD.

""The problem running in the wet, isn't so much, the mud""

Are you for real :woot: NOT in the buggies but the SC10 it most definately IS. Absolutely caked novak fan stopped running as it could no longer turn and I was scooping the mud out with a spoon :D Lucky I cover the RX in bluetak !!

DCM
30-07-2009, 01:21 PM
Ah, see, if you run a speedo that don't need a fan..... then that is no longer an issue, I just covered it in a few sheets of kitchen roll, and it stayed lush and dry in there, the rest of the chassis was like a pool though, that just washes off though... the bearings, thats another thing..

Wouldn't know where to start and what are these ceramic ones all about ?

DCM
30-07-2009, 01:33 PM
Ceramic are overly expensive and a waste of time, in my opinion, but I am sure someone will disagree.... In the Tamiya, I bin them, I give them a clean in the ultrasonic bath, and if they are still rough, in they go, but I not got any spare imperial ones at the moment.

did you guys race at cobra?

I got a question- whats the rules on tyres?

went to caldi on friday and the kit tyres where intresting on the polish- noticed Scott had some pins on his sc10( didnt stop him getting whipped mid air lol)

is every one changing the kit tyres?

im asking as i found some wide wheels with ribs and pins that will fit from another truck
but want to keep it the spirit of the sc10 and not change to much

we were running yesterday, kit tyres, power sliding round, the only time it got tricky, was where the ground got slick on some of the corners, otherwise, worked a treat!!

millzy

I see

well im not a fan o fthe kit tyres on polish-but if thats what every one will run then i guess ill just keep working on the set up

DCM
03-08-2009, 09:52 AM
you start whacking lots of grip on there, it becomes trucks and not SC10's!

millzy
03-08-2009, 09:53 AM
but when the truck isnt moving in a straight line on polish floor you need to look at Grip

im not saying i want it to handle like my b4- but i do want to be able to apply the power and know it will move

If you can't get traction you have to much power, that is the big leveler with the SC10. If you have more power then you will lose traction. I say kit tyres should be the only rule. If you start alowing other tyres you might aswell go race stadium trucks IMHO

millzy
03-08-2009, 09:59 AM
8.5 and a 20c lipo to much power??

if every one keeps to kit tyres then ill look at the power issue- im not sure if it will happen

spesh at club racing

Yep, for polish with kit tyres it is, what makes it fun is that you have to drive these things instead of firing them between corners at max speed. If you don't get that then I guess you wont get SC10 racing, it's all about fun :woot:

DCM
03-08-2009, 10:04 AM
Kit tyres and Diff, and thats it, anything else is just tuning to control the sliiiiiiiiiide....

Craig, at COBRA yesterday, full opposite power slide on the dirt hairpin, top right corner, was freakin awesome!!

Oh im with that its all about- friday was 7 of use just sideways all the way and going for gold on the jumps- it was good fun and i dont see the point in counting the laps with the sc10s- just say go and wait for the 5 min buzzer to end lol

I cant realy change whats in the sc10- but im sure i can re set the speedo so its more polish floor friendly.

im with you both on the kit tyres and Kit diff.
but im not fully with you on the driving- you need more rubbing skillz than driving skillz lol

i shall bin the other tyres i had lined up then and keep it all Kit and stay sidways.

As an avid fan of watching SC10's I love the idea of kit tyres.
Watching all you loonys at Caldicot sliding and drifting around the hairpins is brilliant, so much so that if I could afford an SC10 I WOULD buy one.

I would get one over a micro for the winter

the best bit about sc10 is every one exepts there will be rubbing and has a good laugh doing it

yesterdays' racing was top notch. just amazing fun. and the attending audience seemed to dig it too!

good luck to anyone running anything hotter than a 10.5 - yesterday It would have been a hindrance rather than a help. on kit settings I was powersliding onto the main straight, fishtailing most of the way....

Ok Milzy a letter is on it's way from my solicitor :D

They are not spike they are GOOSEBUMPS and they gave YOU goosebumps when I ran you straight off track into rostrum :woot: BUT yes you did flip me 360 mid air lol. Only reason I had them on is that my stocks have got stripped wheels and waiting for new to arrive !! I think run what ever motor you can control so get a 13.5 in there MILZY boy......

I love running the truck outside, started the day only racing buggy. By the time Round 3 was running I just couldn't fight it any more and had to get out there with it.

They are great fun and looks like if we get the numbers we will run a Truck (SC10) class at COBRA throughout winter months indoor. Before I get shot down this will be an OPEN Truck so not only SC10's. Might have to get some bigger jumps made (DCM+)?? Don't think we need to put restrictions on each other as to what to do with the SC10 but the thought of seeing heats of 6 plus indoor is getting me excited......

Will get some pics on here once the indoor has started to wet the taste buds of all those psycho SC10 drivers, oops sorry open truck drivers :thumbsup:

someone get me some timber, screws and hard board, I will make some jumps, get me some long cardboard tubes, sheet of ply, and a carpet off cut, and you will have a rumble strip, all we need then, is a rhythm section.

There will be a whole load of different SCT's out fom Losi and HPI before the winter, even 4wd ones from Hobao and Jammin. I already have some ideas for a 4wd SCT using Associated parts.

DCM
05-08-2009, 08:27 AM
if it gets popular, we will have to have 2wd and 2wd class!!! lol

They are good though, they look brilliant going round too, as they don't look like blobs going round!!

c0sie
05-08-2009, 08:30 AM
I think the beauty of the current SC class (2WD) is that the cars are not only ace to watch, but also reletively cheap?

I hope a huge influx of new cars and new drivetrains doesnt mean that companies will try and out do each other with parts and therefore bump their prices up?

SC is a great class though, Im really looking forwards to Friday at Caldicot as I hope there will be a big number of SC10's turning up for some sideways :)

Sideways is the future :)

05-08-2009, 08:30 AM
we are running a full heat of sc10s at leo now every other friday night ( if all the local lads who have had them turned up we would have 2 heats :-) ) and we had 9 in one heat on the last friday ,,,,,, it was awesome, i am running an 8.5 in mine with no issues , maybe a tad too much power but its still fun to drive, i do get beaten by peeps running 19t so yes i could go faster with a slower motor but i bet my grin wouldnt be as big :lol:

05-08-2009, 08:34 AM
I'm now unsure what to do with my Losi truck, was going to convert it into a SCT, but with all these others coming out it may just stay as an ST for now...

Im going to ignore the top part of your post there and focus on the best news ive read so far this year- COBRA winter Truck racing!!! yeah baby- and i thought id end up getting a micro for the winter. that so cool im sure you will get the numbers for it

I think that's exactly what's going to happen, especially with the new HPI coming out - unless the manufacturers can agree.

at the moment it's spec racing at its very best - sunday at cobra was the closest RC car race I've ever seen, let alone been involved in. messing with tyres, trick suspension, 4wd will just ruin it all IMO. there also needs to be a voluntary motor limit - 8.5?

pure skill and nerve and setup should be what wins races - not who has the best tyres or whatever.

we've already got open classes for all the other formulae. It'd be lovely if it could be kept confined to the SC10 too, although that's not really practical!

I'm actually starting to disagree about the motor limit. These things can only go so fast and have very limited traction, so the faster the motor the slower you will go. It's all about finding the balance of power and driveability. If you go down the route of limiting the motors you will end up needing the best batteries money can buy to compete in a straight line. I run a 7.5 with shabberd Lipos and was matching 10.5s for speed at Talywain.

I can't help thinking the the more you control how fast the cars can go the more money people will spend to try and eek more performance.

I think that should be the only rule, kit tyres. Though not sure what will happen when other manufacturers get involved.

millzy
05-08-2009, 11:22 AM
what about weight? i think there should be max weight limit

like 60g more than what the truck weights in RTR forum and no more

i think people adding 150 to the rear is just stupid

i also think 4wd CORR is stupid as well

regards to tyres maybe a controle tyre that can be used on all makes of trucks??

ex-sco77morgan
05-08-2009, 11:56 AM
We gone from saying no PT to saying a control tire?

Why if its not competitive event!!

I think it should be a race (PT's in) but I've completely changed my thoughts on the SC10 stock thing and think if you can put a 6.5 in and get the power down GOOD SKILLS. To make scrutineering sensible yes a control tyre, max weight limit and BRCA Battery. All else goes

:DBUT THERE AGAIN WHO GIVES A SH8T WHAT I THINK:D

If we're going for a stock tyre approach I'll try out Millzy's SC10 wheels on my Losi and as long as the SC10 shell is wide enough I'll complete the conversion of my Desert Truck (I may even treat it to some oil in the shocks at the same time!)

Im just thinking that once we all know the rules we can then practise with the right tyres weight and go from there

its like when the micros kicked off and every one went to 11.2 lipo and foams and what have you- at club it was crazy spending money to keep up- once the rules came into play every one knew what they needed and it came back to driver skill

ex-sco77morgan
05-08-2009, 12:34 PM
Absolutely agree with you but it kinda needs to be a gentlemens agreement and the 3 things I mentioned seem kinda managable at the present time.

What will Proline Bow ties be like indoor on carpet as many truck manufactures already use these as a hop up??

Wez can you get the ear to the floor and see if the ball is rolling on a SC10-4wd.

If there is I'll wait

Thinking of getting one of these just to ruin MICRO racing at club :woot:

10-08-2009, 10:24 AM
But what's the point Chris? Why not just race a T4? What you have is a T4 with longer wheelbase and a slightly bigger shell. The next step will be yellow minis, then all the fun starts to go out of it :thumbdown:

millzy
10-08-2009, 10:28 AM
but it was still megga sideways all the way round- just able to put the power down a lot sooner and keep it planted

t4s dont have as much roll as my sc10 lol

i raced it on kit tyres last week and it was just the rolling and drifting just the same as friday - only now you can get the power down early

i think the biggest thing i chaged was the diff setting- adding greese helps a lot

but yes those tyre are not in the spirit of sc10
