Randy - you guys made the Tekin Speedo too fast.  It's like cheating.  Lol!

I think that if you run the boost 10 less than the max setting - that should be prettty close to a LRP TC spec.  Running no boost at all would be slower than a TC spec.

    Awesome flowing track Kevin and crew. The bender boards are easy on the cars. I probably crashed all over the place and did not break one part. I think I have to come back during the week to play some more.

    BTW, Kevin I found the source of the noisy front end. It was a loose CVD pin inside scraping away at the steering knuckle. Lubed the CVD and it is way quieter.

    Had a great time! A little rusty, but nothing that a couple weeks of driving can't fix.

    It's official... the newer style stock ESC's (SPX/Tekin RS) are the way to go. Considerable top speed advantage, fosho... getting yanked down the backstraight is not fun at all!

    Tight lines and good handling car always help though Viva La 416!!!!

     

     

    99% of the time, smooth equals fast.

    Great season opener for the asphalt.  Kevin and the crew did a great job on the new track layout.  Great flow and the boards were easy on cars.  The World GT cars seemed to hook up well even on the spec tires as long as you stayed in the groove.  RCGT was a lot of fun and hopefully that class will continue to grow.

    Huge props to the Norcal crew.  The track and track layout is awesome.  Lots of flow.  The barriers are super forgiving - i didn't break a single part all day.

    I had a Tekin RS in 13.5 and a SPX in RCGT.  Both were ridiculously fast.  I'll be voluntarily taking out the SPX in RCGT and putting in the old TC spec to keep things fair.  I'm going to add about a pound of lead in Arlucks car to slow him down.  He killed everyone in RCGT with a TC spec speedo...jeez.

    Summary of the Race:

    Biggest Failure - John Hicks

    Biggest Upset - Joseph Yao

    Best Wheel - Kevin Jelich

    Biggest Cheater - Me (running a Chevron Bugatti body in 13.5)

    Worst Handling Car - Rommel

    Both of these speed controls have the ability to turn these ramping features off.If you own one it easy to shut them off.It will be on the honor system.With the spx you could run on anything but mode8 and the RS is set via the hotwire.You can run these speed controls in RCGT,just trying to encourage keeping the ramping programs out of the equation.Its a distinct advantage.This gives those that are building an RCGT right now an oppurtunity to use a speed control they already have.It also gives those that have nothing the option to buy whatever speed control they want.

    Had to leave early cause my car was a failure.

    Did we discover that the performance gains from the newer generation speedos give a unfair advantage ?

    I take it yes and if so are we making an addition to the rules (no timing ramping allowed).

    If yes how will this be enforced. (no SPX/Tekin RS speedos allowed) or these functions be disabled) if the functions are to be disabled how will that be enforced ?

    Just want to be clear with the rules
