Re: Kyosho Pro-X

I raced one mat at the 94 nats in auckland. Was a good car, got 3rd in stock I think. I dyed all the parts black though as didnt like the white.

Re: NZIOC Stars Of Tomorrow

Well this year I'm thinking about letting Zac run in open 2wd along with 2wd SCT and not in the stars of tomorrow at all. mainly so he gets more track time and so friday and Saturday are more exciting for him! And also with how fast he keeps in providing, I think he will be fine to race with us "big...

Re: Interesting

Just remember when you start changing the rules like this you are making it more expensive for those already racing in the class. You have already made my 8 year old buy a new motor! Now there is talk about having control tires and not using my hand me downs, and now you want him to replace his old ...

Re: NZRCA 21.5 Spec motor

Good luck with that!!!!!!
I have seen a email to our club from earlier in the year and most of our club members just had "numbers to be advised next to them!"

Re: NZRCA 21.5 Spec motor

Just a question! where can you find what your NZRCA number is? Looks like I will have to buy one of these for Zac, if I want to bring him the nats!
Then again it would now be cheaper for him to run in Mod or superstock:cry:

Re: 2016 SouthIsland Onroad Champs. CRCCC.

Well done to crccc.co.nz for another good event.
My highlights were watching the 4 way fight for the lead in the first F1 race and also Zac's 2nd place in the first stock final! Won't be long and I'll just be his pitman!

Re: NZRCA 21.5 Spec motor

It has to be cheep! otherwise there is no point having a spec motor. Would be so stupid if everyone after buying a 100-150 dollar motor now has to go and buy another one! It should be a trackstar or spec hobbywing motor or the like. Would like these even to be controlled by the NZRCA. IE they buy th...

Re: Pro12 Haters?

At the on-road nats in chch this last year we had a rookie/junior trophy!
From memory we do it at the SI champs also!
Went to one of our 8year olds this year.
Its a great idea I think.

Re: Pro12 Haters?

Has anyone thought about really racing a 12th for only 5mins? So now I use a 5T with lots of boost and turbo with 8000s lipos. So to max out speed for 5mins I'm guessing I'm going to need a 3.5T with close to the same boost and turbo to use up all the run time. Now we are doing around 120kph at Ruap...

Re: Pro12 Haters?

Yup we will be there!

They have stuffed my off road racing too, Got a 8th EP buggy late last year so I could race that class along with my 10th cars at nats.
Now that has its own nats also, so will be giving that up too :(
