Safety first

Relatively safe Model Motor Racing can be potentially hazardous.
Please take sensible precautions, particularly with small children (must be accompanied by an adult).
No pets allowed please -Cars may cause indigestion!!!.
Marshals please take cars well off the track to make any adjustments.
Swearing is against the rules!
Lipo rechargeable's are becoming more popular as it is possible to top up just 1 Lipo between races instead of needing several NiMah/Nicads.
*Lipos are to be charged in a Lipo sack.


We no longer use a pegboard for practice as virtually everyone uses 2.4ghz now.
If you see others who also have a long aerial make sure you're on different frequencys- before switching on
Check your Race number/frequency on heat & finals printout -it may change.
No 35mhz ONLY legal 27mhz, 40mhz and 2.4ghz.
NEVER switch on when racing is in progress -check with race control

Racing Raindeer seen at Christmas meeting
Thanks to Andy and joan once again for making the Xmas meeting so special with the usual raffle and lovely cakes and mince pies etc.

*New Tamiya TT01E Racing truck gremlins

Truck problemsWell I had a few electrical gremlins preventing the TT01E Racing truck from working properly so I thought it may help others if they have similar trouble. (just when I thought I was getting used to Brushless!)
It takes a while but if you change one thing at a time until you find the problem

1. Moving the steering quickly also gave a burst of throttle
Traced to the new Trackstar digital servo so changed to old spare Futaba (Spectrum 2.4 module in Futaba Tx)

2. Then the New Hobbywing Esc became intermittent
Traced that to the switch, I don’t normally fit one but I replaced it because it saves time on a truck club meet

3. Instant reverse and no brakes, (changing the position of the pins on the ESC made no difference), This cured itself after sorting the next problem (below)

4. Slow speed (checked Lipos volts and throttle at 100% on Tx first) I’m sure I wired up the motor to the instructions but it was faster in reverse
Just swopping the brushed motor leads over to the ESC, then reversing the throttle on the Transmitter. Now we were up to full speed, with brakes and reverse!
