  We have 2 classes at Nor-Cal Hobbies that use the Citrix system, Formula 1 and the new FWD Class - this is a specific combo (21.5 for F1 and 17.5 for FWD)   To clarify - The speed control and motors are to remain in their stock form.   No tampering is allowed, in any way.   These are supposed to be the fun/lax classes.  

I'll figure something out about the gearing and tire diameter by tomorrow.  There's no doubt, that's a big inequity.

Someone on Sunday did bring up the issue that there really has not been any formal, agreed to rules for this new class. How can someone be cheating if there are no formal rules in place. I suggest that we all agree to some basic rules and then we go out and have fun.

RULE ONE: Speed Passion Cirtex (sic) speed control/motor combo 17.5 as the only allowable power option with no opening or modifications to the motor or speed control.

RULE TWO: Only front wheel drive chassis allowed. Any manufacture

RULE THREE: Adjust straight line speed with gearing to allow all makes of cars the ability to compete.

RULE FOUR: The only leagle bodies front motored, front wheel drive, two door bodies.

Anyone else care to chime in on rules?

I lived in communist country for few years I know how the system works. When you're prosecuted based on suspicion, you confess to avoid further punishments

After reading these posts Im going to step in here. If i get any ideas that cheating is going on in any classes at Nor-Cal Hobbies and you are suspect of cheating I will check your motor and speedos and if found cheating will be asked to leave for the day and unfortunately be made an example of how things will be handled. Nothing further needs to be said here. Please if you are new and If you  dont understand the rules and need help see me for any questions and I will get you answers. Racing is always fun at Nor-cal.

URL: Edmund, he already admitted to the infraction. No gearing at 3.1 does not constitute cheating. Other circumstances do.

I don't mean to add more oil into the fire, but does gearing down to 3.1 = cheat? Pulling the car in the middle of the heat don't sound right. And VERY discouraging to Hung and other people wanted to join this class.

From what I see, it's like putting same engines into 5spd GTI and 6spd Civic. Either you get a better chassis or slightly better speed.

Ok, I fess, I cheated. With my inferior driving skills and my inferior car, the only way I could compete is to cheat. I will bow out with my tail between my wheels for I am not worthy to race with you FWD gurus.

Why didn't you take the motor out and have it inspected right then and there to show it was legal?  That would have saved all these rediculous posts that are killing a very fun class.

These motors shouldn't even be taken apart.  The system is supposed to be drop in and go.

Not sure where the number 40 comes from but FYI these motors have timing in them already and if you actually advance it by 40 deg it will run in reverse. I know that's a lot of tech info for you to process in one reading but I thought you should know. Anyways, feel free to dyno, take apart and/or do whatever you want to do to it. I will drop it off at Norcal as soon as I can get over there. Til then every thing is hearsay.

You're right, I chose not to run I also chose not to ever race with people who can't understand that gearing a 17.5 at 3.1 is faster than 4.5
