    Default Brandon Florida FE race 11-24-19

    https://www.rcracingevents.com/cgi-bin/rcrev.pl

    The date is set for the one day fall-winter race. Nov24-19 that is the Sunday before Thanksgiving, We are adding a couple classes with interest locally. Limited/Offshore, P Jersey Skiff, and Q/limited.
    Jersey will be 4S (P) with a 40X74 single motor limit. Sarasota has 4 racers that want to come and if we can find more boats they will be built.
    Q/limited is a new local class we see growing fast. Single motor 40X74 max on 4-6S Mono, Cat or Outboard Tunnels combined. No length limit. (this would be a killer Zip33 combo down the line)
    Here is the logic: The next step above P/ltd is full P or Q which can get very expensive to keep up with competition. A limited Q keeps motor and ESC cost in line with P/ltd. 6 cell bring the amps way down and you can actually use a Raider/Flycolor 150. Add an $80 Leopard 1400kv and your into the mid 50's.
    The next benefit is Sonicwaves, Spartans, Pursuits, and Genesis fit in well. Anyone know someone with one of those?
    I tested a Leopard 40X74 with a datalogger on a 37" mono and saw 56mph and 140 amp max draw. In the range of a 150 and surely a T-180 would be bulletproof.
    You can sign up now on PP or mail in. Hope we see you in Nov. 2 Day race in early March 2020 is in the works too.

    So far the west coast boys are signing up. Crickets from the rest of the state.

    Did a test run on the old reliable M&M's Avenger in Q-Ltd trim. Handled great in the gale force winds this past Sunday.

    [B]RACE UPDATE!!![B[[B]
    We have had interest in running a P/ltd hydro class and it seems there are enough numbers to run both P and P/ltd. We have changed the sign up on RCRacing events so if you have already registered do the second one and misspell your name. We can also do the split at the drivers meeting and accommodate the two separate classes.
    Also note O/ltd and P Jersey Skiff motor will allow a maximum measurement of 40.99mm X 75.99mm. This will allow manufacturing tolerances for some inexpensive motors. Affected drivers have been notified.
