Cheers Richie - We've got to start somewhere to make the QuickSilver rules better known - here seemed like a good place to start!Richie wrote:That should work !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
It's clear from earlier posts today that any use of G2 motors is having a negative effect on the race class as a whole - we can't have it upsetting Mikey now can we?!! The feedback from most of the local racers in the class and the much appreciated external feedback from Biggus and Erica makes it clear that motors need to be restricted to the 27T Tamiya motors only for the benefit of the racing. I'm hoping we don't have anyone wishing to race QuickSilver who intentionally runs a Mardave G2 knowing that these rules have been set. Why cheat with a G2? What's the point when all the fellow racers will be aware of the marked performance difference on the track? It's only going to cause animosity. We need to keep the motor rule clear and simple. Maybe the class should be renamed the "Tamiya 27T Motor Class", but that rather lacks the catchy name, and the "Quick Silver" stickers already look excellent on the side of our cars! Awareness is the key - if everyone is made aware of the rules then perhaps infringements can be punished by not awarding championship points to illegal cars or making these G2 motored cars race in the other non QuickSilver touring car classes.
And Justin - what are you all doing to kill the motors mate? - my race car still has the same motor in it it came with 12 years ago. Perhaps whatever tricks you are employing to obtain advantage from the motor is the cause of these failures. I just wish everyone could just take a standard motor as it arrives and race with it as it is in the spirit of handout motor racing - but it's not going to happen is it?!
