    Racing Program for Punggol Pond 10 June 2007

    The HCC R/C Powerboat Club is in the process of planning and organising the next racing event to be held at Punggol Park Pond on Sunday 10 June 2007.

    Having learned from the experience of the previous 29 April event, the 10 June event promises to be bigger and better As before, the objectives are for the racers to have fun, ensure a safe and enjoyable afternoon for spectators, and to raise the public profile of the hobby. Participation will again be open to all

    The racing program for 10 June will include EP, nitro and gasoline boats divided into the following classes:

    (A)
    Gasoline Hydroplane, Catamaran or Tunnel Hull

    (B)
    Gasoline Monohull

    (C)
    Gasoline Unlimited
    (no restriction on hull type)

    (D)
    Nitro 21
    (any hull powered by .21 (or smaller) engine - inboard or outboard)

    (E)
    Nitro Unlimited
    (any hull powered by a nitro engine with no limit on configuration or engine capacity)

    (F)
    EP max 6 Cell Sub-C or 2S Lipo
    (no restriction on motor or hull type)

    (G)
    EP max 12 Cell Sub-C or 4S Lipo
    (no restriction on motor or hull type)

    (H)
    EP Unlimited
    (no restriction on number or cells, motor or hull type)


    Further details of the event will be posted in the next few days.

    In the meantime, start building and fine tuning those machines for a fun-filled day of racing.

    Thanks again to all who had joined us in April... we look forward to seeing you again in June

    The boat club is very pleased to attach the racing program and participation requirements for 10 June 2007

    Please feel free to print-off hard copies for your own reference. Printed copies can also be picked-up from Jet Hobby from this Friday 11 May.

    The club is in the process of arranging sponsorship for trophies and prizes. Further information will be provided once these arrangements have been finalised. For parties who have generously indicated their wish to sponsor the event, you will be contacted shortly so arrangments can be put into place.

    The club is not looking for monetary sponsorship for this event. Instead, sponsorship in the form of trophies, prizes, cool drinks (for racers and spectators), etc are most welcome

    Thank you all and look forward to seeing you on 10 June

          One small little Q :

          How many classes can a single participate enter? Lets say I have an EP boat, can I enter all three classes - 2S, 4S and Open???

            Hi Adrian

            Hope you receive your new cat hull and hardware very soon so you can start work

            The answer to your Q is... there is no limit on the number of classes a boat may be entered into - so long as the boat satisfies the criteria for the particular class it is racing in at the time.

            In the case of EPs, if you build a boat that can run on both 6 cells/2S and 12 cells/4S, you can enter the boat in all EP classes including the unlimited class

            Further, a boat running on 3S lipos will not qualify for racing in the 6 cell/2S class, but it will qualify for racing in the 12 cell/4S and unlimited classes.

            Hope this is helpful

              Sounds good

              If you're running EPs, you may have to upgrade the motor and battery technologies to keep up with the BL/lipo boys... things have come a long way since my stock Kyosho Bluestreak days

              Luckily, technologies have not moved as fast in the gas and nitro world

                Thks for the info.

                My Cat hull juz arrived at my office 5mins ago!!! Have not opened package, will reach home then open it up.

                Hardware still awaiting OSE to ship. So now its a nice sampan.


                Anyway, tis Cat will not be running for the coming competition. No more $$$ to buy batts. Need to save save till after next mth. Will be taking my own sweet time.

                However will consider my JH Yamaha on BL n 2S for the coming competition.

                  I think we should ban X34 from the race.

                  He uses Lipos in stacks number double digits. Hi BL look like they can fit and power my washing machine.

                        Wow... the shipping was FAST

                        The JH Yamaha is very good on 6 cells or 2S... just need to "dial-in" its full throttle turning stability and you'll be cookin

                            Hope X34 was not the one who purchased the 6S2P 4400mAH lipo "club sandwich" pack
