I posted a race announcement for Bill Pinch's raceway (in Melbourne, FL) in the Race Announcements topic. Who is in? Bill did this last year and it was a good turn-out. No qualifying, A and B mains based on Bill's observations of your practice times. The track was well prepared and the racing close.

 

Generate some buzz. All of you who are less experienced, this is the place to be. You will have the best racers in the state and all are willing to assist. It will be good!

OK now the tech part, rules? What's the limit on the motors or is it anything goes?

See the same entry in race announcements.

 

Group F is oilites, no shunts, Chinese arm. Most use Hawk 6 or 7. Balancing on Hawk 6 is allowed.

 

Group 12 is C-can, full-length magnets, bearings, shunts, G12 tagged arm.

 

G12 Lite is Hawk 6 or PS equivalent, bearings, no shunts, tagged X12 arm.

 

Bill Pinch the raceway owner has final say, it is his race.

Maybe I can help here. Warning, I am not a wing racer.

 

For Group F, the two motors shown below are the only legal motors.

For Group 12, the motor shown below is one of the legal motors. The armature has a tag that shows "X-12".
