Hey Gaz, you didn't upset me, you asked a good question and I answerred it. I intend on going still this weekend, will take 2wd and cells too and no matter what will be able to race - just I do need to race the SX.

I agree, York is a great club and I am a member of it, love racing there - not only is it a great venue, but they build great tracks and the people are great.

Will you be there Gaz? or is Teesside still Saturday nights?

Does a club have to have a rule book printed and given out to every member? Would you like to do it?

So the word of a committee member is not good enough then? Maybe you would like to take my place at the AGM - I'll put you forward for it.

I agrea with yah G,
I cant believe that people dont take the word of a committee member about whats said and wanted for the club, after all they do all the ground work behind the scene

Oh yes, I was decorating and distracted last week - will reply.

Good move on the X-6, it is the best 2wd and the UK national champ. I am not a team driver for X-factory any more but will always help out mate, no worries.

What's the reason lipo aren't allowed again? I'm not interested in a "because we say" I just wanted to know the actual reason is all.

What constitutes a 'lipo sack' - can I just put a potato sack over my car or is it something more high-tech than that?

A potato sack should be more than enough protection

No, thats just silly. You have to stand in the sack while your charging, thats right isn't it?

i would g if i was able to make the agm but cant go iam at my sister's wedding . i just think not allowing lipo is backwards . i got lipo because they were in use last winter and the clubs website doesnt say we cant use lipo, it was only 2 weeks ago that anyone mentioned that lipo are not allowed nothing was ever mentioned at all last year.

Isn't this an issue for the BRCA rarther than York committee

Since York, as I'm sure many clubs do, run under the BRCA insurance they cannot allow Lipo until BRCA approve them in that class. Otherwise if an lipo related incident should happen, whether it be by a battery failure itself OR a lipo powered car who would be liable if the insurance won't pay out?

no the insurance company do not specify what cells you run,

it is the committee`s decision i think its fairly simple too its not like its a big grey area and its not like you can mix them up, one requires a sack to be charged the other requires a bunker.

Northy has lipo cells he is itching to use, as i am but i can accept the current rules of any club its really not that difficult boys

The clubs website also doesn't say:

You can't take a shit on the floor.
You can't punch the race director in the neck.
You can't set fire to someones car if they are faster than you.
You can't run a nitro car in the hall.
You can't run 20 cells.
You can't fly planes around inside the hall.
etc
etc

Not a valid argument.

Anyway - as I said in another post - don't shoot the messenger, I am only relaying what was said at the committee meeting.
