Arvint,

Since mah is not an advantage power wise and due to the race lengths i dont see an issue with it.

Leo,

We just where refering to how hard we worked to get the dirt surface smooth for you all. The track has elevation changes, banks and off camber sections that makes it differnet then asphault racing. Hope you come out and have some fun with us sometime.

SBS,

Track will be open everyday this week and saturday if you check your frequency, then it will be closed for improvements this coming sunday till the opening practice day of the big race.

I know who that was and that was his first time out...He wasn't a full fledged racer so Norcal made an exception...He didn't win so there was no need to DQ him after tech...Just to clear that up...Rules are set to keep the racing close...I'm sure if you got 6-8 of your pavement buddies to run with mod motors and such, you will have your own class...if not then you can still participate but if you make podium, then you will be tech'd at the end of the race....Don't be upset if they DQ you....www.norcal-hobbies.com www.casterracing.com www.reflexracing.net  allspeedhobbies LTPAINTS

What is the track practice schedule this week and next due to the track improvements for the 2 day race?

Would like to get some 1/8 scale practice in this week and some time on the new layout next week. I am pretty sure myself, Eric Rohde, and Randy McKinney are in for some slash action for the 2 day.

Nor Cal slash rules have always been 6 cell or 2s lipo, stock motor, stock esc, slash style tires with slash wheels or slash beadlocks, stock servo and whatever aluminum parts you feel like spending money on.

So aluminum steering parts are not illegal at Nor Cal

why am i stirring up the pot?

with HT FREMONT, at least i knew it was pavement racing.

i just asked why an off road track would have sections that was describe as "smooth as glass".  

 

as for the questioning the rules, what's wrong with that?   i was trying to get 2 other people to race in the slash enduro a couple months ago.  one guy had to bail after reading the rules since he had done some modifications on this slash.

so i went and watched the race and noticed one slash with "illegal" parts (alum steering assembly) on them...

For lipos it's a 2 cell (7.4V) limit, hard case only.  As for mah limits, post what you have and they will tell you if it's legal or not.  If you don't have a battery yet, pick up the 7.4V 40C 5000mah Thunderpower that Norcal is selling.  It's probably the best lipo out there right now.

Coming from a guy who raced slash on pavement at HT Fremont,I think your question is comical.Unfortunately your line of questioning now has come to the point of trying to stir the pot.Between here and RCTECH,you have nothing constructive to add.Thats too bad.Noone else has complained about it.Hopefully you find a place you can run your slash that meets and exceeds your expectations in regard to the track and rules....

i mean is is OFF ROAD... not ON road.

might was well race on pavement with jumps...

Soft Lipos only have a thin layer of foil that protects them.  If that foil was to get ripped or damaged in a crash a serious fire can happen.  The hard case protects the cells from damage come from the out side.
