PS: what is the "wave"? - Edit, I should have read all the posts before Tamar's
Tamar, you have 48hrs to get on the telly and give us a wave 👋 I swear I'll get there one of these days.
Ok so Friday night some 60 clicks from Paris, 140 clicks from Le Mans. It's been less then 48hrs since I started this post, and we're on page 3 already...so apparently I've stirred up something...and a lot more than was the intended purpose of this topic. Some of the replies posted do seem to me like the B.o.P option I'm starting to investigate...is already a done deal.
All I did was post my intentions, shared the idea and gave you guys an indication on how I would set about verifying the data and test the feasibility of this possible option.
@ Marcel: Why would a set, fixed and public power setting confuse and or distract people from entering digital...when the same technology is used for all the simulations that are used in RCS64 digital ?
@ John: what would be more unfair: Using a power restriction equalize the max rpm of a set of motors, or letting a motor advertised as 17k but in reality running 18k compete against motors that do really 17k?
And enforcing rule specs is day to day business for FIA and other race organizers. Be it a B.o.P for GT3 or any other class. This is not a case of handicapping good cars, drivers or motors, this is about pegging back an 18k motor running in a 17k class.
@ Gary, Sorry dude, but your remark is a clear case of all motors are equal, but some are more equal than others.
And unfair as I've clearly indicated that more testing of both motors is required until a representative number of data has been collected.
@ Gio, thx mate, you do seem to get the picture. The main problem in most 1/32nd slot racing rules is that they are not based on (test) data. They are often based on assumptions...like taking for granted what a manufacturer advertises is correct.
@All, this was the intent of my post, report a possible disparity, investigate and test to see if this was true, and investigate to see what could be done to resolve set disparity if proven to be true via the Oxigen RMS.
So I will not post anymore until I have done more testing.
With kind regards
