Racing Lines Magazine and Speedi Models, in association with the North Harbour RC Car Club present the 2011 Racing Lines International

Entry form and full event info attached at the bottom of this post

Sorry took a while to finalise the last few bits and bobs, but the information and entry form are attached below. Please note online entries for the event has not launched yet, so bare with us a tad longer (exams!). I will update to inform when this is online.


To answer a few questions that I can see coming;

Control Tyes - this is a Much More 32 pre-mount (same used last year). This can be purchased through the entry form for a discounted $40 per set, or you can provide your own.
If you provide your own, they must be brought to the track in their original packets, with all part numbers corresponding to those listed on the entry form. This will be checked at scruiteneering, and your sets will be marked.
All gluing is to take place at the allocated gluing area - as per last year.

Super Stock Turbo - after much deliberation we have decided to run Super Stock with no turbo or timing functions. This does not include punch settings. This purely means, you can not have a 'turbo' or 'timing boost' feature. Electronic timing must be set to zero. Mechanical timing may still be used.
This is something ROAR has been playing with, and it is something North Harbour has been playing with which we would like to try.
This will be scruiteneered as per the ROAR list seen HERE

Is it true that Super Stock will be run at this meeting with stock spec, i.e. no timing advance or turbo boost?

Hope not, it's bad enough (i presume) to be running silver can in F1.

Looking forward to another road trip.

Yes, I agree. In fact I have to say that I won't bother attending at all if it does go stock spec.

Super stock with non turbo timing is not too bad in North Harbour.
Last week in the Club Classis, Ivan was using non turbo in SS and his lap time was better then my mod....
I was using non-turbo in the international early this year and the car was not slow at all!
The lap time different in between turbo and non-turbo will be approx 0.4sec in North Harbour track.

If non-turbo is not so different from turbo then why bother restricting it?

I have never run my car without turbo and have no idea how to set it up, or drive it that way. I don't enjoy going to a meeting and being on the back foot immediately.

So with it being so close there would be no need to to run stock spec esc,

Save the scrutineers the extra checking involved in ensuring no ones esc is blinking or not.

KISS is a great idea.

Cheers
