3 Hi Everyone, Welcome to the second addition of NZ RC Racing. Firstly Id like to start by Thanking all those people that contributed with Articles and Photos for this issue. The more we get from you, the racers, the better the magazine will be. Thank you also to all those that have given feedback we appretiate the support from all of you. Just a quick reminder to all clubs to send stuff in, anyone can write in for their club, even the younger racers. This is the last issue that your club will be included in unless we have something from the club or individuals to include. You will be taken out of the magazine untill something is received, we dont want to see this happen to any club but no one wants to read the same general information month after month. Remember, if its RC related we want to publish it. So happy writing and we hope to hear from you all soon. We are fresh back from the NZRCA Special meeting that was held in Hamilton on the 3 rd of October. This meeting helped us iron out some issues and the outcomes from this meeting can be found further in the magazine. The new NZRCA year is now underway and we have seen our first major event that was held in Hawkes bay, Congratulations to all competiters that were involved in this event. Also Congratulations to all those that competed in the NZ Stockcar Champs and the Waikato IC Off- Road Champs. October sees the start of a very busy month events wise and we would like to wish all racers the best of luck in the upcoming events they attend. Theres not too much to report on this month as things are sailing quite well and there doesnt seem to be many issues floating about at this moment. We hope you enjoy this issue and continue to share your racing with us in future issues. Kind Regards, Scott Kendall President NZRCA

Club logo – Website – Contact details: Jamie Fell, , Sunday 6th September 09. Sky is clear, racing is on. Despite small numbers which is typical for this cold time of year, racing action is hot. The most popular class as always is again the Super Stock class. With all the guys aiming for 21 laps, who will be the first? Qualifying round goes quickly, with Adam taking pole in M0, Amber in clubman class, Scott takes pole in superstock and Shane once again is on top in Modified. 3 rounds of finals will decide the winners on the day though. 1st round and unfortunately Amber broke in clubmans after holding a great lead. This will put her out for the day but still has M03. Scott wins superstock final 1 after a tough close battle at the start. Jamie comes in 2nd and Matt finishes 3rd. Modified sees Jamie challenge Shane for the race lead and he is holding Shane out....until his servo decides its had enough. Shane takes the lead and the victory. Round 2, Amber has bad luck once again and now the M03 is out for the day too. Adam takes the win in all 3 races for the day. Clubmans sees Mike lead from the front all day long. Superstock and Scott gets a clean start from Jamie and builds up quite a lead early on. Then a mistake puts him half a lap down and chasing. Despite chasing hard, at the final buzzer, Jamie takes round 2 but the overall race time is slower than round 1. Shane leads modified from start to finish with Jamie coming in 2nd. Round 3 in Superstock and once again Scott gets the clean start. Jamie is right on his tail for the first 2 minutes then a mistake and Scott takes off. With the 21 laps in sight Scott starts lapping traffic. The buzzer goes and Scott has done it, setting both a new lap and race record in the process. Shane once again takes the win in modified and makes it a clean sweep for the day. Page 4

17 Update on Harewood RC Club and Upcoming Events later in Well just a quick update on all things related to Harewood RC club and some info on upcoming events. First of all as pictures show, the track work is coming along nicely, been quite a few delays, what with lack of clay initially, then weather related, finally we are making nice progress and everything is back on schedule. The track has changed from previous layout, we have included some more technical sections, added some more elevation changes, a straight drop off, some very slow rolling jumps on corners, and all this in the hope of testing the skill and patience of the best electric and nitro drivers who will invade the club late Oct / early November. Both events the club is hosting are well underway and well under control planning wise goes, the South island electric Off Road Champs is first up on Oct 31st and Nov 1st, For event info and online rego go to Then 1 week later we host Possibly the biggest Event in NZ RC at the moment, the IC off Road Nats, for event info and online rego go to Club volunteers will run both events and we are determined to be remembered for slick, well run events more so than anything else. Plenty of other work has also been done around the Harewood facilities, entrance at main gate has had a tidy up, Car park cleared of excess clay and now more parking area available, Also all club transponders have recently had batteries replaced by a committee member. So check out the above websites, enter the events you want to attend and we will all see you down here later in the year for some awesome racing. Page 17 Report by Tim McKay

18 The month of September, has seen the continuation of some great racing in the offroad classes. In the Nitro ranks, 1/8 buggy is being fiercely fought between Mugen, xray, and whatever Gavin is running at the time, Truggy is a four way battle that is very close, with young Chris McGaffin stamping his mark with the X2/ Reedy combo, and proving a very skilled driver to get past. Pieter Botha's Xray, Chris's MBX6t and Gavin's new Losi usually swap for placings depending on how hard one gets pushed, the Manawatu faithful arrive once a month, and their cars give the track and the HB guys a real hard time. 4WD stock is another close class, with four drivers very close on points, the B44's and Kyosho's generally have the rule of the track. The CORR truck class is the one showing great growth, with 9 trucks in the ranks now, and another couple not far away, they are the real crowd favorite, and provide close (door slapping action). Shane O'Connor is another regular visitor, and his battles with Rusty, and James are ones to watch. Onroad has just finished its indoor season, where the numbers are thinning a little, but the action is always intense. The inaugural Winter 300 was a massive success, and next years event is looking to be bigger with out of town drivers getting a little more notice, so they can attend. The new track is doing its job, and keeping the damage to a minimum. James has his new MO5 nearly ready, and four guys ready to contest the new super mini class. Coming in October we are running on the 10th with offroad due to the Holy Bathurst day of rest, so its a 1pm start for the faithful Chris O'Connor Club President Page 18

20 Sunday 20 th September, Once again we were greated by awesome weather. Despite the nice weather though, numbers were well down on usual for this time of year. Still, we proceed with the normal 4 classes. M03 as always is action packed all day. Qualifying sees Amber take TQ position, Bryce finishing 2 nd on the track but unfortunately he forgot to put his transponder in his car. Scott completed all of 2 laps before his back wheel fell off and passed his crashing car. While this entertained and delighted all, it setup a great showdown in the finals. Clubmans was a one man, or should I say one women show all day long. Amber took TQ easily and won all 3 races. She was delighted to have a trouble free raceday after all the destruction of last raceday. Super Stock once again produced the most numbers. Qualifying saw both Jamie and Scott failing to finish. Jamies steering wasnt working and Scott had a wire come off giving all the others to fight out for TQ. Dion raced clean to take his first TQ in the class. Mat took P2 with Geoff finishing off the top 3. The finals were a different story though. Race 1 saw Jamies day in Super Stock end prematurely on lap 4. He hit one of the steel pipes end on causing huge damage to his motor and bending the alloy motor mount. Scott managed to fight through the field to take the win in round 1. Round 2 sees Mat getting a good lead. Scott chases hard in 2 nd and at the 4 minute mark, its going to be a close finish. Scott managed to get around Mat and take win 2 and Mat has a little trouble on the last lap, and after the race, finds a screw has come loose but still comes in 2nd. Round 3 and Mat is once again clean away and starts to build a gap, but after 2 laps he takes a corner wide and hits the plastic piping that someone put on the outside of the corner to help cars ealier in the day avoid a puddle. The impact takes out his right side front end and his day is over. Dion and Scott have a little contact before its all sorted and Scott goes on to take win 3 easily. Modified is once again a Shane Wilson show. Taking TQ and all 3 finals, once again despite his hard chasing, Jamie just cant get round him for the win. Talk in the pits is Jamie is considering trying a different motor sometime in the future. His driving is great, but the speed of Shane is all the seems to separate these 2 at the moment. Going back to the M03 class, we had lots of action in the finals. Depsite only 3 cars, action was like it was a NZ Speedway event. Bryce managed to take Rounds 1 & 2 despite all the contact and being chased hard by Amber. However, round 3 and it was each for themselves in what what turned out to be the action race of the day. Bryce got a clean start but was chased down and the contact began from everyone. Bryce tried to defend his position by cutting off Scott, but the 2 connected and Amber got through into the lead. One she would hold onto for the rest of the race while Bryce and Scott couldnt keep their cars apart. When Amber came round to lap the 2 of them, its like they all had magnets. Everyone finished with big smiles and looking forward to the next battle in 2 weeks time. Page 19 Page 20

22 The annual South Island Champs will again be hosted by the Canterbury Radio Control Car club at Ruapuna Track. The event will cater for both Electric and Gas powered cars. Labour Weekend 24-26/10/2009 Registrations have now opened so you can register now. Have a look around the web site. this site contains all the details you need to know about the event. For more information regarding the event or Radio-Controlled Cars contact: Kevin Davey (President) or Andrew Kirk (Secretary) Page 22

23 The big R had an obvious effect on this event for 2009 with entries down to nearly half that of the two previous events hosted by HBRC. Still – those that did make the trip to the Bay had some great competition on the racetrack – with some very close racing in all classes. Patience was required to wait out the big dump of rain that arrived on Friday night/Saturday morning. Nothing a quick pie run to the bakery wouldnt fix. The rain actually helped by keeping the track in great shape for rest of the weekend. Without the need to water, the whole schedule was able to be squeezed into Saturday afternoon, with an early start and a full day on Sunday. Top qualifier Perry Field blazed away from the pack to win by substantial margins in both Four and Two Wheel Drive Mod classes. Shane OConner and Darren Johnson put up a good fight but to everyones surprise it was Gavin Davidson who picked up 2nd spot in 4WD with yet another new car (Hot Bodies D4 this time). Gav is a capable driver, but so often in the past has missed the podium due to equipment failure. After missing Saturdays first two qualifiers due to illness, Reigning National Champion Brendon Hodge from Manawatu repeated his performance from earlier in the year to clinch the Stock Truck title. Multi-time Champion Craig Puller gave him a good run for his money. Rusty Birkens pink and black Losi came in 3rd. A favourite track of many drivers due to its wide, smooth surface, interesting jumps and change of elevation, this was the first official event to run with the single file start grid for the finals. It proved very successful with very few pile up on the first corner. Page 23

24 A small turnout in Mod truck was often reduced further midway through each race with long time Counties Stalwart Russell Mahoney melting motor wires at regular intervals. Local lad Wiremu Paipa was the eventual winner. Top Qualifier Jonathon Thompson was his usual mix of outright speed and spectacular crashes, eventually finishing third behind Stuart Harker. Hawkes Bay kept up their impressive record in 4WD Stock, the title going to Sonny Pearce this time. Even more impressive was his ride – a lowly Tamiya DB01 Durga (which also won Concours for his black Darth Vader body.. Wiremu Paipa bagged 2nd with Mr consistency Matt Whitmarsh in third. Another Mr consistency was Shane OConnor who not only won 2WD stock but ended up on the podium in all four classes he entered. Sonny Pearce 2nd and Counties Ken Drummond, as he so often does at these events, finished in 3rd. The class that really got the crowd going was the demo class of CORR or Short Course trucks. Not known for their refined handling attributes, nether the less they made a brilliant racing spectacle. Big colourful bodies, big air and even bigger crashes but more often than not simply rolling back onto all four wheels and carrying on. It was an even contest between the Slashes and the SC10s. Big Ups go to Craig Puller for his gorgeous Vodafone SC10 paintjob. It didnt look quite so flash at the end of the weekend. With plenty of positive feedback post-event and with a little more lead time (a mixture of things forcing Hawkes Bay to run the event earlier than anticipated) to promote the next one, the club hopes to quickly return to the sort of entry numbers enjoyed in recent times.

28 Suncity Plastering 2009 RC Stockcar Champs Saturday 26th September saw 64 competitors with drivers from Auckland to Christchurch turn up in Hastings to compete for the top jewel in RC Speedway, the Suncity Plastering NZ Stockcar (electric) title. The quality of cars on display, both in terms of workmanship and the running gear stood testament to how the sport has evolved over the past 3 years. On track the speed and skill of the drivers also proved that as developing sport we are on the right track. The event was hosted by the Hawkes Bay club who put together a really well run meeting. AMBrc lap scoring system was used which after an early technical difficulty (system doesnt like overhead cables) the system performed faultlessly. The 64 drivers were divided into 4 heats of 16 drivers, with top 4 qualifiers after 3 heats into the final with the next 4 drivers from each group going into a repecharge. The top 4 cars from the repecharge qualified making for a 20 car final. The first finals heat was fast and hard. It was fantastic to race with a group of drivers who know how to peddle cars. As you can appreciate 20 cars racing on an oval track that is end to end 20metres long, with racing lanes of 1.8metres means finding a clean line is hard work. Yet there were guys who consistently during the day managed to do this, both in qualifying and the finals run. Page 28

29 After the first finals heat 2 Wellington cars, including the 2007 NZ Champ Doug Angus were in top positions followed by Gisborne and the reigning 1NZ Richard Alexander in 4th. Heat 2 saw Doug drive a great race to finish 1st and lead the competition going into the last race. He was followed closely by Hayden Gwilliams from Wellington and Aaron Brown from Gisborne. The final race saw paybacks RC Stockcar style with plenty of attention being paid to the top cars. Bumpers were used as well as the wall for maximum impact! As the dust settled it was Doug who had taken out the final race, with Slick and Callum from Gisborne close behind and 1NZ Richard in 4th. All cars were quarantined until the top 4 cars were announced and rescrutineered. This involved reweighing the cars, checking bumper heights and motors stripped down. The official results were as follows: The Hawkes Bay Club wishes to thank all competitors and sponsors, especially Shayne and Donna from Suncity Plastering, along with all Hawkes Bay Club members who all contributed to make the 2009 Champs a real success.

34 We also ran a 30 minute race for Juniors before the main race. There were 4 entries, this was to gave them a feel for endurance racing. This years event had 9 teams from as far away as Manawatu, with three teams from Dargaville coming over. The start of the race was very close with all the teams setting a very fast pace. As pit stops started and the race settled the top 6 teams were all very close. Positions changed almost every lap. By the halfway mark SP Racing had built up a good lead over the rest of the field with SLK Racing and Dargaville B chasing hard to make up some laps. In the last hour of the race SP racing had pulled out to a 21 lap lead. SLK racing was starting to close the gap slowly. Throughout the entire race 2nd to 6th position was changing every few laps with small mistakes making all the difference. In the last hour SLK racing had cemented 2 nd place running out of time to catch SP racing even though they were closing in fast in the last 20minutes of the race. It was a great race with all the teams having a great days racing. The whangarei winter 200 was held on the 11th of July. The format for this event is a 200 minute enduro race using tamiya M03s with a minimum of 12 pit stops, this race is run in an indoor cricket building. Each team was made up of three drivers one having to be a novice driver. This event has been run for three years now and is growing in size every year.

36 NZRCA Special General Meeting Results On Saturday 3 rd October, following the racing at the Waikato I.C Off-Road Champs, the NZRCA held a special general meeting to sort out some constitution matters and other general items that came up at this years AGM. Clubs from all over the country were present and we received postal votes from a couple of clubs who were unable to attend. The following is what was discussed at the meeting and the outcomes. 1.The current NZRCA year is from 1 st September – 31 st August and clubs at the AGM voted to discuss the year to be changed to 1 st January – 31 st December, being a proper calender year. This was voted in favour of and will be effective this current year. So the current NZRCA year will be 1 st September 2009 – 31 st December The 2010 NZRCA AGM will be held in October, not June. You do not have to pay your fees again but in effect will get 3 months free. 2.Part of the current NZRCA executive is made up of 2 technical officers (one for I.C & one for Electric) and 3 Zone stewards (one for North, one for Central and one for South). The proposed change was to remove these 5 positions, and replace them with 4 technical officers. I.C Off-Road, I.C On-Road, Electric Off-Road & Electric On-Road. The techincal officers would specialise in one field and also be responsibly for similar jobs the current Zone Stewards do. There was a lot of discussion around this topic and when it came to voting time, 7 clubs were in favour of the change and 6 against meaning the motion failed and the NZRCA executive remains as current 3.Currently clubs wishing to host a NZRCA sanctioned event put in an application at the AGM along with the dates they wish to host the meeting. This can and often has created problems around 2 events wanting the same dates and/or similar events being held very close to one another. The discussion here was in regards to having set timeframes in place for each event to be held during the year. This would mean clubs who want to host their chosen event, would know the particular timeframe of when this event is to be held. It would also mean members know a approximate time for each meeting each year. There was a lot of discussion about this as some clubs feel that particular events may be given a time frame that for whatever reason can not be met. The general discussion on the floor to this, was if there was a good reason why a club could not host on the dates the meeting had set out for it, the host club could apply for dispensation to hold at a different time, or swap timeframes with another event. It was decided that this was a very good idea and should be investigated further by the NZRCA executive and look to put something in place prior to the 2010 NZRCA AGM. The executive are to research the best times for each event to be held, and this will be discussed with clubs along the way. 4.At the 2009 NZRCA AGM, there was a remit for Capital Model Racers to change the current rules for Electric Touring Car bodyshells. The original remit was ammended at the AGM to read - A list of approved bodyshells be listed in the NZRCA rulebook as per Global Body Specification. This was voted in favour of, however when the NZRCA went to ammend the rulebook, it was discovered that IFMAR do not currently have a list of approved bodyshells. The clubs were asked to decide if they would like to vote to either keep the wording of the bodyshell rule from 2008/2009 year, or go with the original remit from Capital Model Racers. It was voted by the clubs to go with the current rule from 2008/2009 and that no such list shall be in place. So after an hour of discussing everything on the agenda, the meeting came to a close. We had sorted out quite a few things and the executive have some direction and work to look forward to over the next year. Everything voted on at the meeting, is effective immediately.
