I think the Yank's are running the SC10's for 8 minutes? With current LiPo capacity that would be easily achievable?

* Tracks must be jumpy as possible
* Contact is allowed <-- My only rule inputs

Hope it all works out Mark, the SC10's would be quite fun to watch as a massive heat of them.

8 min heats would be sweet. allowing contact would be pretty hard to referee though!

sticking to kit tyres is a great idea, although I've yet to try my sc10 out on grass, so I have no idea how well the kit tyres work.

the whole thing has to be focused towards racing on a very tight budget.

How about 6 minutes for those running brushed/NiMH's?
Would this be best for all?

Thanks,
Mark

I think 10.5 is PLENTY for the SC10's stock tyres, you would need crazy skills to drive anything faster.

If you run an SC10 meeting at Hereford or Ledbury? then I am definately in, dates permitting.

I'd like 8 minutes, but I here what your saying Mark, a stock RTR spec motor probably wouldn't make 8 minutes on a grass track. Maybe try 6 or 7 minutes and see how that goes.

I ran an SC10 for the first time yesterday

what a larff

we ran contact rules - Mass start final
the race was 5mins long but we kept going for ages after

I ran a 8.5 and i think it was fast enough with lipo

Every one who ran i think will agree it was the best class yesterday at COBRA and exepted the fact that you might get taped or wiped out.

fully backed; and bizarrely, driving the SC10 actually made me a lot quicker in the 4wd class - it definately helps you learn lines and how to drive on the limit

I find them very cool, being an accurately scaled down version of something I find ace. So keeping the rules as close to the full scale rules in terms of racing is what the aim should be.

i.e. Line starts, rubbing, big jumps & big balls.

I'm tempted to get another truck, but not if it was limited to SC10s as I can't afford one!
