LiPo Rules

At NRCC we take LiPo battery safety very seriously.  We insist that everyone follows these rules.

  • Only hard-case LiPos are to be used in cars
  • LiPos must always be charged in a commercially available LiPo sack.
  • There is a maximum charging and discharging rate of 15A
  • LiPo should never be used once they have started to swell.

The club has red fire buckets filled with sand. These are to be used in case of LiPo fires or if you suspect a LiPo might catch fire.  LiPos smoking or on fire should be taken outside the building as soon as possible.

General Rules

The Blinky class is for ESCs that have a 0 timing advance at all RPM, driving 13.T or 17.5T motors. The speedos have a blinking light when switched on and in the neutral position.

The modified class is for any speed controller and motor combination.

The class is designed to provide close racing because all cars should have broadly similar straightline speeds, and speeds that an average 'club' racer can cope with.
