Re: Ask a Question thread

Hi Ben, welcome to the forum :) I'd recommend going to a club meeting at Harewood and having a snoop around. Rather than buying new lower tier model, I'd get a second hand mid-range. they'll probably end up around the same price, and you'd get much better value out of it. Running what's popular at y...

Re: Important Forum Announcement (Major updates coming)

Ok the forum has finally... painfully been upgraded (don't ask :? ), and with a snazzy new theme too.

I'll do some tweaks to it over the next few days to get things right. But it should be all operational.

Enjoy multi-file uploads (yay about time)

Re: We have moved to facebook

I think embracing Facebook is definitely the way to go, it has so much more pulling power for the general populous then a highly targeted dedicated website like rcracer. The best outcome would be to use both, 'the best of both worlds'. And that means I need to adapt and make things easier for everyo...

New Events Page

We've added an events section to the website, which we've tried to get all of the results of previous events we can. So check out some results from yesteryear and see if you can see some of your results :) Check out the new page here: http://rcracer.co.nz/events.php We try to preserve the history of...

Re: 2s 12th

Oh interesting!

Now I'm curious

I assume they're just normal 1s batteries, but the cells inside are just in series rather than parallel (plus balance port)

Re: 2s 12th

Apart from silly people expecting to use the same motor.... What advantages are there? -no need for a 1s esc -cooler electronics as you're running higher voltage (but not sure if added weight would offset that?)

Unfortunately sometimes it's hard to tell if someone is actually a spam bot or not based on their name / email address a...
