Milanowicz & Ruman win at Polish On-road Nats Rd1

The opening round of the Polish On-Road Nationals was held in Jelcz-Laskowice last weekend. The event saw the running of a multitude of electric and nitro classes and in Touring 17.5T Stock it was Michal Milanowicz with the overall TQ from Tomasz Fryc in 2nd. A1 saw Tomasz taking the win after a couple of mishaps of Michal allowed Tomasz to pass the pole position holder. In A2 Michal was able to hold onto the lead and to bring home the win by a small 0.5 seconds margin from Tomasz in 2nd. So the third and final A-main would bring the decision and ultimately it was Michal who walked away with the win and thus the overall victory with Tomasz Fryc in 2nd and Adrian Lippich in 3rd. After the race Michal became aware that he was using a too small diameter rotor in his motor and after reporting his mistake to the judges in great sportsmanship, it was decided that he was able to keep the win since he couldn’t report himself and he was just reminded to use a legal rotor the next race.

Over in the Formula class it was Michal Bugajski with the overall TQ from Jan Ruman and Sebastian Stepniak. In A1 it was Jan with the win from Michal and also A2 would see Jan taking the top spot for an early overall win as Sebastian snatched the win in A3 to cement his overall runner-up position from Michal Bugajski in 3rd.

Losing grip – RC and utilitarianism

”Utilitarianism” is not a tongue-twister first and foremost, but a book published by the British philosopher John Stuart Mill in 1863. It is one of the most influential philosophical works of the nineteenth century, and is still frequently quoted. Sometimes in even places as random as columns on RC drifting, something I am positively certain […]

Arrma 1/5 Outcast 8S BLX 4WD Brushless Stunt Truck

Horizon Hobby have introduced the new Arrma 1/5 Outcast 8S BLX 4WD Brushless ready-to-run stunt truck. Driven by 8S brushless power and an Arrma-tough design, the Outcast 8S BLX 4WD delivers the torque, acceleration and speed bashers need for extreme action in 1/5th scale. The ready-to-run stunt truck comes equipped to defy gravity right out of the box. From the heavy-duty front bumper to the wheelie bar in back, it’s engineered to do it all: long, tall wheelies; tight, fast donuts; standing and aerial backflips; high leaps into the air; and more — over all terrain, in all conditions. The truck includes a Spektrum DX3 Smart transmitter and SRS6110AT AVC Active Vehicle Control receiver that take full advantage of the Spektrum Smart Firma brushless motor and ESC’s telemetry capabilities. Users can download the free Spektrum Dashboard App to their mobile device and follow motor RPM, ESC temperature, receiver voltage, drive pack voltage and more data in real-time.

Bigger than big and engineered for brute power and toughness, the truck features a metal-reinforced design that lets the driver blast up, over and through bruising obstacles. Metal shafts, turnbuckles and outdrives, plus all-metal internal gears, give the drivetrain and suspension system unstoppable strength. Even the included Spektrum S905 digital servo boasts the strength of metal gears. The extra-rigid, laser-etched, anodised aluminium chassis plate has a multi-structured centre brace system, rear lower chassis brace and strong composite chassis side pods for the durability to support extreme stunts. Extra-thick moulded composite front and rear shock towers hold massive 20mm bore, oil-filled adjustable shocks to soak-up bumps and jolts.

Arrma keeps the maintenance time to the minimum with an efficient, driver-friendly design. A sliding, 3-bolt aluminium mount provides fast motor access. The vehicle’s front, rear and centre modules and waterproof electronics module are also engineered for quick and easy access, removal and maintenance. The ultra-tough truck body arrives factory trimmed, painted and decalled. A centre protection tower on the chassis interfaces with the roll cage for increased body durability. Its tough stunt truck wheels come outfitted with metal 24mm hex inserts and multi-terrain dBoots Backflip tyres that provide all the traction the driver needs to flip, grip, wheelie and spin. A high downforce wing helps keep the vehicle grounded — and a wheelie bar is there for when only 90 degree wheelies will do.
