IRCRA is an association of RC racers who look forward to create an opportunity for all RC car enthusiasts and hobbyists to start up and continue to enjoy the hobby. The main aim of this association is to bring all RC car drivers together is committed to delivering quality information and support to its members.

About the event:

Rotor Hobby and IRCRA joins hands to present you a national level RC car race in Chennai. The race will be held at Rotor Hobby’s Mecca of RC Sports, RCPA Alpha 3 located 110kms off Chennai on NH-45 near Melmaruvathur.

Alpha 3 also houses a massive RC Aircraft and Helicopter runway, a one of its kind facility in India designed as per AMA standards. Alpha 3 has also planned a massive artificial lake for RC boats.

About the Track:

The Track dimensions are 140 feet in length and 80 feet in width. The layout consists of several challenging turns and fast straights. The track lane width is a constant 10 feet with some more wider turns. The 10 feet tall covered drivers stand has enough space for 10+ drivers. It is centrally located on the 140 feet straight.

A dedicated pitlane with pit platform is available. A dedicated pitlane will ensure that no pitting cars will obstruct the free movement of others on the straights. The track can accommodate 1/8 scale and 1/10 scale cars.

The obstacles like table tops, jumps, rumblers etc have been planned and will be implemented ASAP.

Alpha 3 has all facilities to conduct a National event. Several racers from across the nation are expected to participate. Rotor Sport and IRCRA look forward to your presence. Hope you will like the track and enjoy your day racing.

We will be posting more information and the full schedule shortly.

Nice layout.

Is it a clock-wise or anti-clockwise track?

Anti-Clockwise with separate pit lane on the home stretch. Jumps & Rumblers will be up before the race. This is really tough track with tight corners. You will never be able to hit high speeds unless to take proper racing lines..

One newbie question... what is the ruling in a race if the car tumbles and ends up two lanes inside, in the direction it was supposed to go (thereby the driver getting an unfair advantage) ? Smiley

Usually,a marshal picks it up and puts it where its supposed to be.If it gets back up,the driver continues.I guess its not cared about in club racing but it might have some sort of penalty in sanctioned racing.

usually if a car tumbles,it stays upside down.If it goes right side up,the driver is lucky.

Also,if a driver is found to be cutting corners,he is penalized.

Normally, all drivers are decent enough to continue from where they made a mistake. In case of absence of Lap timers every car is assigned to a volunteer who will count the number of laps the driver does with out cutting corners. In lap timers, we will set minimum time (i.e. 5 sec minus the fastest lap) anyone coming below the minimum time that lap will be not be counted.

Anwar, its a big challenge. With no timing equipment, its even more difficult. All the races we see this happen. A car you lapped suddenly appears ahead of you becausing a cunning or ignorant pitman leaves the car on the starting grid. We are thinking of some process to ensure that the car is placed in the exact location where it stalled. 

These things happen in a world race too. Ryan Maifield's car was marshalled and put in the reverse direction 2 times in the Amains.

Jump are gettting done as we speak.. Will upload more pics this weekend.. I'm so looking forward to this race as i will be defending my championship win..

This will be a very hard race if the track stays like this.Whoever is participating should get his tires right.

Well said Gandhar. The track is not this loose anymore.. The track has a very huge roller made of concrete, you need 5-6 people to pull it. The track will be rolled before the race..
Well tires will play a huge part of every driver's strategy.. You have choose inbetween too much grip and too less grip.. I have tried 4 different sets of tires already.. Finalized with one but still not too happy with it..

So thats not your premium racer right?

Good thing that the track will be rolled.If its not,its going to be a massacre out there >Cheesy.If a buggy is having trouble handling that course(which I guess it is because you said that you had the wrong tires),others will have serious problems.Would be fun to see how others tackle this.

If I were to choose a tire for this track,I would go with one without a deep tread and medium compound.I guess wear will not be much of a problem seeing the surface.(but I ain't coming anyways  Sad )

Lets hope you get the tires which you are happy with.An unhappy driver will not trust his car.You do have a month and 4 days to decide.lets hope you get it right and keep your winning streak up. Grin Thumbs Up

Its not just your tires Gandhar.. The no. of teeth on pinion gear and spur  gear also matters, oil used in differentials, suspension oil, toe plate adjustment, EPA etc etc.. Winning is also based on proper pitting and perfect tunning for performance and mileage.. With current setup my fuel is lasting only for 4mins, hence im changing my engine to .21 from .28.. Planing to make a short loop for monster trucks.. Its very hard for them to drive on the this track.. Chennai team has lots of Buggies and truggies and hence the track was made this tight..

Well yeah.On the handling,the tires make one of the biggest changes.Diff oils surely do play a part.For the first time,I have seen a nitro guy talk about gearing.I am used to seeing electric guys go over gearing.A .28 size is 4.6 cc right?

I guess the races are for 7 minutes each.Electric guys don't have to worry much about this since I believe the races are usually 5 minutes each.A lipo can give consistent performance for upto 30 minutes(a 5000 mah one).So you still have some issues to sort out.Hope all of you guys get your best setups.

But there is one thing,its going to be hard for the buggies and truggies,it will be harder for the monster trucks.

Try changing your pinion gears up and see what happens. Same tech for nitro or electric. Lower the teeth, better the torque, lower the top speed and vice versa.

People think changing the engine or the motor, shifting to higher nitro % fuel or powerful batteries ONLY will make your car go faster....

Just like real cars, mods have to be done in stages, stage 1-3.
