Racing

The club holds regular race meets throughout the year for 1/10 scale electric powered RC cars & trucks. Our standard race meets are held on the 2nd and 4th weekends of every month.

During the warmer months of Spring, Summer and Autumn, we run Saturday Twilight racing under lights. Racing starts at 4pm and finishes at approx. 10pm. In the colder months of Winter we shift racing to Sunday starting from 9:30am and finishing around 4pm.

Race registration is done via rcsignup.com and race results are published on the LiveRC web site.

The club is a member of the 1/10th Electric State Association: A.A.R.C.M.C.C. Affiliation to this association means our members can compete at any Club, State or National Championships throughout Australia.

All racing is done in accordance with AARCMCC and ROAR rulings

1/10 Novice Class

Run what you have, buggy or truck. We are more than happy to give you any further advice you may need on race day, or beforehand via email/rctech forum. Come have a chat at any race meeting.

1/10 540 Class

The 540 class is a low maintenance, low cost class suitable for those that want to race and have fun in a more level playing field. The 540 class is also excellent for new racers, allowing drivers to learn race craft and car control without having to battle the torque of the modern stock motors.

Under the 540 class, only the Johnson 540 motor is allowed, which retails for just $20 from Campbelltown Hobbies. Any 1/10th 2wd or 4wd car is allowed, however 2wd is encouraged as they are best to learn on and are actually faster with the Johnson 540 due to the simpler drive train.

The following tyres are permitted only.

You can run any ESC, however, we recommend the Quicrun-WP-1060 to keep costs down for new drivers.

1/10 2wd Stock Buggy

17.5 turn brushless motor, Blinky ESC, 2s (7.4v) lipo batt or 7 cell NiMh

Track Race Timing

The cars carry a small transponder, each with a unique identifying code. As a car passes over the transponder loop imbedded in the track at the start/finish line, the transponder number is registered on the computer, which times each lap down to one hundreth of a second and also counts how many laps the car does in the 5-6 min race time. At the end of the race, the driver with the most amount of laps is the winner.

Transponders are available to borrow from the club, free of charge to use for the day. Personal transponders can also be used (AMBrc, Mylaps, etc). The club broadcasts race meets live to liverc.com.

Come race with us today.
