    Understanding FE power VS IC

    Racers are always going to push rules to the limits and that is part of why we all do this. I have no delusions on a total revamp just opening up a thought process of what might work. Here's what I see so far Even though people will try to reduced battery weight it still puts a limit to...

    Understanding FE power VS IC

    Before I take a needed nap I want to address battery limit. It is in the Namba book with no criteria for inspection other than sticker value. Not good. I though about a way to enforce an energy limit and weight though not perfect makes the most sense to me. Right now I see P/L run with...

    Understanding FE power VS IC

    I don't know what you could do to tunnels to kill them. Kinda self fulfilled prophecy. I understand wholesale changes and have Q and T equipment. S is not run anywhere other than records. Actually S in my mind would be better than Q as I have a ton of 4S packs to run in series/parallel. easier...

    Understanding FE power VS IC

    The issue with ESC become manufacturers specs and over rating. Make a dedicated ESC list and we find better cheaper options we can't use while the ones on the list aren't made anymore. Tylers current limiter is a better option. Mic

    Understanding FE power VS IC

    OK the power limiter is not really available and needs modification. How do we tech it? Will there be different current limits in P,Q,S and T? Some car classes have a blinky light on the ESC which I understand may blink and not limit. Do we need a $75 (est) unit for each boat we run or does it...

    Found this info on Formula e Formula E Season 7 regulations - Motorsport Tech uncovers all - Motorsport Technology Interesting read and I am not sure I understand everything. They have a bit more resources with manufacturers and sponsors to level competition with technology. We need a little...

    3AM you wake up to "P" and your mind goes WTF Anyway I hope we can open up and share some ideas and viewpoints on "power" how it's determined and how it relates to boat racing classification. This is my conception and not gospel by any means so feel free to jump in anywhere. Internal...

    Knock Knock anybody home? What Lohring is saying is taking place more than just his area. How many threads have discussed attracting new racers. Gas stockers and P limited are the real entry points. New people don't expect to win and dominate, but they do look at rules and that helps them...

    Fred, With all due respect I have to disagree with a few points. As for tunnels and I am a pro tunnel as anyone, but P/L is not a good class to start out in. They simply wind up upside down to easily. Too much torque! Guys get frustrated and move on. Beginner classes don't work. To fill...

    If you are an IMPBA card holder and race FE please contact your district director and make him aware of your position. Ask him what percentage of boats in his (or her) district are running FE limited or existing rule book classes. Numbers count and will prevail. From what I see in entries P/L...

    Yes there are some complicated ways to make a perfect system. However there is a simple system in place that is working and growing numbers. (36X60) I look at many race flyers from IMPBA clubs that offer limited P classes. Not all are clear as to what exact motors are allowed. This is where a...

    10000ma is 2 5000ma packs in parallel. As for "stock" motors in theory great. It does create a nightmare for inspection. If gas races actually tore down and inspected after races the class would die. Or many would not race that day. Right now "limited" has simple easily enforced linear...

    Tyler, I have seen this discussion ebb and flow for years. Length seems to be the last block. Under 60mm limits manufactured options. I was at one time in favor of 62 but would rather concede to 60mm and align things nationally. There is no perfect parity unless you control motor, esc, battery...

    Mark, As Tyler states 30" eliminates a lot of hulls and will result in less seaworthy boats. One of the reasons FE Tunnels lag behind others in growth. Yes the same attitude that pooh poohed sport/stock outboards is alive and well. Outboards in their day brought a lot of members into racing...

    Paul, The problem I see with a specified prop is that will start a S**T storm opening up a can you don't want. Certain hulls perform better with certain props and it also takes away another element of setup. We don't need IROC. NAMBA rules are working and if you just have to be different...
