Our tentative format/schedule for the Day:
8am - 9:30am - Pits Open, Registration Open
9:45am - Drivers Meeting
- Practice (5 minutes in Duration. Fastest Lap seeds Qualifier)
- Qualifier (8 minutes with your 40 laps in 8:43.234 is what will seed you for your Mains)
- Moto #1, Moto #2 (2 x 10/12 minute races. The winner is based on their moto finishes, totalled, lowest "score", i.e. 1st and 2nd would be 3 points; 3rd and 3rd would be 6 points; the first guy would win. Tiebreaker is Moto #2's finish. Based on participation, we may have BB and CC mains. If you are in a lower main, you will run two races, and the top-two will bump up.)
We are using an RC4 Mylaps Box with old firmware, meaning 2-wire Transponders are what are required.
Parts support: Skycraft Hobbies will be on-site for all of your parts, tires, accessories, fuel and tech support needs.

MyLaps Transponders in OFSOC & O8SOC Series
Mylaps has a monopoly on RFID technology, they created it and it is the mainstream for all racing - 1:1 Cars and Trucks, Marathons and of course RC. As most of you know, a new MyLaps transponder is a considerable investment (about $125 at Skycraft Hobbies), and there have been some knock-offs of their technology over the past few years (i.e. MRT Clones... the black transponders). To gain their share back in the market from those that have taken their technology away from them, MyLaps has created a new system that won't read clones. This is the Upgraded RC4 Decoder Box. It is the only thing on the market available, and they were crafty in getting a lot of tracks to upgrade their RC3's/RC4's firmware or trade for RC4. They won't "downgrade". So now, this is where we sit. RC Acres has a RC4 with old firmware and Walton has a RC4 with the new firmware.
What that means:
RC Acres - 2-wire MyLaps and 2-wire Clones are compatible
Walton Raceway - 2-wire and 3-wire Genuine MyLaps are compatible
If you have a clone transponder (usually black, or say MRT on them), you can either purchase a 3-wire MyLaps for Walton and continue to use your clone at RC Acres, or purchase a 2-wire MyLaps and be good at both. 2-wire is the most popular in the world, so that would be my recommendation.

1/5 Scale and Going to Walton? Get in Today!
It's already almost time for the 2nd Race of the Ontario Fifth Scale Off Road Championship Series... we race again May 24th at Walton Raceway.
We will be using a handful of race directors this season, will be cramming in a lot of racing, and are purchasing awards based on pre-registrations. We will be looking for you to pre-register for OFSOC Races. It's very easy to do so (we're not using RC Signup for anything other than the National...) ... you can use a simple google form - http://jscully.tk/may24 - or email email@example.com with your name/class(es)/transponder/permanent number - or text it to 416.931.2502
To expedite the days, I am looking to pre-load the first races from the pre-registrations. We will take you on the day, but it is going to make it a much smoother check-in process for our racers and administration by having everyone pre-register. PRE-REGISTRATION IS NOT PRE-PAYMENT, PRE-PAYMENT IS NOT REQUIRED OR PREFERRED FOR OFSOC & O8SOC EVENTS.
We look forward to seeing you at Walton.
