May 18th -  Point to Point Rally Racing 

The SoCal RC Rally Runners will be returning for Pro-Line By The Fire 2019!!! With a waaaay better course location and much more time to prepare this year, we will be able to take this years scale point to point rally racing to the next level. Its going to be EPIC!!! Stage times will be between 2 - 3+ min long, compared to 1 min last year, and with a combination of separate start and finish (Point A and Point B) points and a electronic timing system currently being built by a fellow group member, we will not have long wait times like last year. The course will also have better terrain with elevation changes and covers much more territory! This is going to be bad ass scale single car point to point rally stage racing with prizes and awards by Tamiya USA and Pro-Line Racing, respectively. We are looking to open the course for timed racing for approximately 1 & 1/2 - 2 hours to allow everyone to check out all of the other activities at the event. We plan to keep the course set up all day and night and may get in some night rally runs just for fun, no timed racing.

 

What makes this kind of RC racing different than typical RC racing is the lack of a drivers stand and turn marshals. You are your own personal turn marshal, which keeps your driving more on point. Its you and your RC on a narrow and twisty course with many different challenges. In addition, you have to figure out the best line to take your yourself along with your vehicle. You are on course live and up close to the action racing against the clock. This addstotally different dimension to RC racing. You have one stage (aka lap) to lay down your best time on a technical course with varied terrain. No over groomed prefect track conditions. This is real rally racing !!  

 

 

More event details to be added, so come back for the most current information and make sure to join us on Face Book and Instagram.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                   

                    Point to Point Scale Rally Stage Rules

  • Must look like a rally vehicle, the more realistic the better. This rule does not apply for vehicles in the non rally classes.  

  • No motor or ESC limit.

  • If available, cars must be driven, unassisted from the Parc Expose, through the arch, and up to the starting line of each stage. This rule may not apply for every event due to the setup of the course in relation to the Parc Expose, Arch, and starting line.

  • You must marshal your own car during each stage. Outside interference will result in a time penalty or disqualification.

  • Cars must be driven under its own power through the entire stage and through the finish line. Cars can be turned back on its wheels by hand if flipped over.  Car direction may be corrected by hand if caught on a course marker, in deep dirt, if parts such as steering components break, etc. during a run, as long as the car is driven under the power of its motor through the entire stage and through the finish line.  

  • If a car breaks while on the course, either you can take a DNF or if repairs can be made within 5 mins, it must be driven through the finish line under its motors power to complete the stage.

  • For multiple stage runs, the car, including chassis and body used at registration, must be used in all stages of a particular event and for the particular class. If a car breaks and cannot be repaired, a backup car can be used, but any runs with the backup car cannot be tallied with runs of the car that was initially registered and was unable to be repaired. Basically, all times will be tallied with the car that ran them and final results cannot be averaged with multiple cars by one driver in one class.

  • Tires can be changed or altered in between stages.  

  • No cutting sections of a stage allowed. Time penalties will be given for obvious cutting of any section(s) of a stage. Excessive damage to the course, course markers, etc will lead to an automatic disqualification and you will no longer be allowed to run the course.         

 

 

                                                                              Classes:

1/8 Rally, 1/10 Rally, Trail rigs, Open class. This event is to have a good time. To keep it simple, there will only be these four classes, all RC's welcome. The course will be tight for SCT based sized or larger RC's. Some vehicles may need to be "best" placed into particular classes based on a number of factors and this may need to be figured out the day of the event. We will do the best we can to make it as fair as possible.

This will be a tight and technical course, faster motors AND more lipo cells may not be your best friend, driving skill, will.

This event post will be continuously updated so make sure to come back to check out the latest info.

May 4th -  Pikes Peak Hill Climb/testing our new electronic timing system followed by rock crawling/trailing

Join us for our first ever rally Hill Climb race to test our new electronic timing system that will bring future group events to the next level! After Hill Climb racing, we will end the day with some rock crawling / trailing at a near by spot.   

The course is a narrow and winding tarmac walking path in a local park with a dirt section that could be added to the event. To keep things simple, we will determine the winner by picking the driver with the most improved time over three or so runs. Runs will be single car point to point stage Hill Climb races. No turn marshals, so if you go off course and cant make it back on course, the run is a DNF. Of course you can try again but back at the starting line. All electric RC's welcomed, just keep in mind it's a narrow walking path in a local park and this is a RUN FOR FUN group get together for bragging rights, not a hardcore racing event. This is a local park so we must be respectful and to not cause ANY damage. No power source is available, but since each run is pretty short, one battery pack should be enough.   

 

We are planning on arriving at 9:30 am and to start racing around 10:30 am. Runs should  take less than an hour to complete, depending on turn out. Of course we could run longer if we wish to. After Racing, we will hit the rocks and trails so bring a crawler/ or a trail rig. 

 

Address -  3177-3199 Flanagan Dr. Simi Valley CA 93063

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Join us Sun Oct 6th at TQ RC Racing in Chino for some friendly group point to point rally racing! Most RC's 1/10 scale touring car size or smaller will work well on our tight and twisty tarmac point to point rally stage course. We typically run 1/10, 1/12 (M size cars), trikes, and side by sides, but could easily add additional classes.

Meet at the pinned location

  Jan 13th - Rally Santa Fe Dam   

Join us at Santa Fe Dam Recreation Area for a day of scale RC rally running, eating food, and hanging out with friends and family. We plan on getting there around 8:30am - 9am to build a scale rally course. Grab a shovel, rake, any scale structures or accessories you have and come help build an awesome course to play on for the day! This is a "fun" group get together, but if interested, we could get in some point to point racing. If we do, below are the rules and classes we typically go by. Even if you don't have a rally RC, join us for some fun! Just a heads up, this will not be a basher type course running super fast RC's. There is a $10 park entry fee paid at the main gait. This is a local park with restrooms, no electrical source available so plan accordingly. Bring some food to share and family and friends. Address is 15501 Arrow Hwy, Irwindale, CA 91706

Open class -  Any  type / brand RC vehicle within the above scale sizes using the above Point to Point rally stage rules. 1/8 scale SCT based RC's, or any similar sized RC, may be a little big for the course, but could be run if you can control it on a narrow course at slower speeds and make tight turns. This is not typical RC track racing, this is scale point to point rally racing.
 

This will be a tight and technical course, faster motors may not be your best friend, driving skill, will.
