USRA Scale Nats 2014 Group 10 hand-out motors
Posted 14 March 2014 - 08:01 PM
The Parma 502 is a sealed Super 16D motor (and therefore balanced) in the Deathstar set-up. To make tech inspection more expedient, we are allowing replacement of motor brushes, springs, and spring cups for those who feel it will improve performance. We expect the performance of this hand-out motor to be quite adequate for the class which will be run on the newly-refurbed Hillclimb in Edgewood running with 4" Stock Car bodies with minimum rear clearance of .063".
Please PM me with any questions.

We're probably going to have to change to a different motor because of the problems fitting the X25 center pan motor box. I'll have new information for you in the next few days.

Pro-Slot 4002FK? Small, sealed, and cheap.
When the only tool you have is a hammer, everything is a nail.
Support your local raceway, or you won't have one.
Slot cars are quad-pods.
Support your "Local Racer."

OK, here is the final decision of the USRA B.O.D. Handout 16D motors are not currently available for Group 10, therefore it will not be a hand out motor class. Racers participating in the Group 10 NASCAR race, you'll need to bring your own motor(s). Refer to the USRA rule book for any questions on 16D motor specs. We realize the 16D motor may be a thing of the past, but it has always been the motor used in Group 10. At this late date we will not change to the more readily available motors such as Falcons, Hawks, 4002FK, etc, etc. Perhaps the writing is on the wall for the future of Group 10, but we'll have to see what happens over the next year and study what went wrong this year.
If you need a motor, there should be many sources of raceways that carry 16Ds and aftermarket blueprinters who can help you. As the race organizers, we apologize for this unforeseen change, but we only learned of the problem less than a week ago. Feel free to PM me or Milton Gamble with any questions or comments.
