I timed her at 25 sec two weeks ago, about 19 sec last week. That works out to about 6 volts. Best guess.

Funny thing about that 2 weeks ago your son was at about 30 sec but the next week he was faster then the rzr so he went from 30 to about 22 or 23 I guess using your math I would figure u gave yours a 6volt boast? Just a guess

here's my little guy from the first week he was running a lightning I thought he cleaned up in his age group but scoring I don't think was to accurate I no he won the oval in his race I no he won the drag in his race there's no one against u in the road coarse but I thought he was moving u can see his big sister walking next to him mad that they didn't have a class for a 12 year old lol

I think the obsticle course is the scoring issue. It seems that every one runs a different direction, some bothways, some straight back,some one way.......cant be accurate that way. My daughter has won all but one race in here group and she was listed in second overall:?: :?: :?: . I checked out the first place driver and he is way slower, so...YES, there is a scoring issue.


From the results that I have seen....your daughter and my son should be 1-2 in their class.

Was taz's yellow the only Gaucho on 18v? I wonder if some one had a super Gaucho if it would be faster than the RZR

yeah My silver edition is set up with 2x 12-10ah so it's 12v by 20ah & I just about to buy a 12v-18ah for the JD Gaucho but my Hi torque is 18v-24ah with a 12v 24ah under the seat so the weight is a little more even ,however funny enough I guess because of the torque the front will raise just a little on take off like it has a v8 under the hood.

Thanks. It could be a lot faster if I want it to be but I don't want my kids going any faster in cheap plastic toys with no suspension and limited traction. As it is I cringe now and then.

So far, they ssay the race is still on. Hoping the Rain holds out. This will be the last event of the 4 race series. Then we have one on Saturday to finish it all off.

Then it will be time to work on the Meets. :)

Oh.. I am not denying the fact that I probably do usually run on a 6 - 8 year old mentality. It is what keeps me fun and relative to kids :)

We unloaded under questionable skies.

As the first round took to the track the dark clouds moved in followed closely by rumbles of thunder. Shortly after the second round of races the event was called. Everyone scrambled for cover as the skies opened up.

The balance of the races for tonight have been added to the DTA Cup event on Saturday.

Videos are uploading to YouTube.......I will post them as the finish up.

Here are a few highlights of the timed competition;

Charlene (sleeping at the tree) and Nikko on the drag strip.
James at somewhat of a disadvantage.......Dang 24volt rides :evil:
James taking shot #2 at the 24 volt scooter, followed by Charlene taking her turn on the obsticle course.
Nikko taking his turn at the obsticle course.
James finally gets the scooter on the oval course! You can hear one lady in the background "What kinda batteries do they have?" LOL :lol:
After all the timed events were over the officials went off to calculate the scores while all the competitors lined up for the main event. The track size was doubled for this race. The pink scooter took the win after a clean race. H2BRATZ daughter had the lead but lost it after a tangle with a lapped car. She had to settle for 2nd. James finshed 3rd, he lost some time after a spinout in turn 1. Charlene was off to an early lead but lost several spots after getting together with the black Escalade....don't know what he was thinking :evil: .....but that's racing. I'm not sure where Nikko ended up but he was enjoying the ride.
Here's the first part of the awards.....
Part 2.....These are the overall top finishers for the timed events.

It had a few downfalls but was still a great time. The organizers continue to make it better and I'm looking forward to next year. What a Blast! :D :D :D

Looks like a ton of fun :D.....and the kids had a blast I'm sure too ;)

Kinda gutsy to have the scooter running around all those rookie drivers, she should have had a set of pads on just in case :shock:

Can't wait till we have our local get together in October...seems like a decade away but I'm sure it will be here before I know it :roll:

This event was all stock vehicles.

My events usually consisit of stock(12v max), stock plus 6 volts(18v max), Modified stock(any combination of stock parts) 24volts max, Unlimited (has to be electric and based on a BPRO type body).

I'm sure hypo will have similar classes, if not the same.

FYI, most of us avoid gas motors like the plague. It's a lot of work, a lot messier, a bit more dangerous and the only real benefit is that you can fill up a gas tank in a minute where batteries take a few hours to recharge. Most of us just buy extra batteries if range is an issue.

the only reason i even considered the gas conversion is cus i used to race go karts so it would be getting back into something i know alot about, im not very good with the batteries, not sure what im doing besides adding more voltage.
