New Tire Manufacturer RC4Less

By now we are sure most if not all of you have heard about them and have numerous questions regarding them.

First of all both of us, Todd Holloway and Scott Harper have nothing but the utmost respect and gratitude for Todd Bishop (BRP Racing Tires) for all of the support he has provided to not only QSAC but to every single racer in Quarterscale, without Todd we would not be racing, plain and simple.

When this issue came up and we knew we were going to have to deal with this we called Todd to talk to him about it. Let's face it, this is a small community and with social media being what it is there are NO SECRETS. Todd of course knew of the new company doing some testing, we not only felt we owed it to him to personally call him to let him know of the situation, we wanted to do this out of respect.

With all that being said here is the short version. The ONLY manufacturers tires that are legal for QSAC NCS competition for the 2015 Season are BRP and WCM.
RC4Less tires are NOT LEGAL for 2015 QSAC NCS races.

There are tracks that have made them legal for their local races. QSAC cannot dictate what tracks allow or do not allow except during the QSAC NCS Race at their venue.

Bruce Triplett (RC4Less) is making tires for QuarterScale cars, QSAC does not and cannot dictate what products are made. RC4Less plans on using this year as a test year to develop the tire and will be available by contacting them at The target availability date for the tires is April 2015.

The obvious question is how are we going to keep this tire from being used at a QSAC event. It is very simple. The RC4Less tire is very different in appearance from the BRP and WCM tire so therefore very easy to discern what tire is on a racecar.

The next question probably on your minds is, when will this tire be legal for QSAC competition? RC4Less has submitted the tires for consideration to be an allowed tire for competition. This will take some time and have to go through the proper channels. Rest assured that we, the Co-Chairs, full well understand the gravity of this situation and we will act in the best interest of those that matter the most, the racers.

2015 Race Season

Happy New Year QSAC Members

The New Year is here and all of us at QSAC are ready for the new season as we are sure all of you members are.

It will not be long before we all get to hear those engines singing down the straights, smelling the rubber and fuel and most of all enoying the best brand of oval racing there is, Quarter Scale Racing, QSAC Style.

With the New Year comes new things and the 2015 Rule Book is one of them. It is ready for download all you have to do is click on the tab at the top and you should see it open up. There are NO RULES CHANGES for the 2015 Season. There is one major difference this year and that has to do with race fees. There is now a $10 discount for additional classes. The only other changes are the wording from Novice back to Limited Sportsman, the schedule for the 2015 NCS Season and the Co-Chair name change from Mike Sadler to Scott Harper.

There is also a new tri-fold brochure ready for download. It can be found by clicking the FORMS tab and the file is called 2015 QSAC Brochure. It contains current contact information along with two spaces for local track and club information to be inserted so that when you hand these out they have the local track and club information.

As always, we the Co-Chairs want to hear from you. What would you like to see, what are your ideas?

See you at the races,

Co-Chair Candidates for the 2014 Election

Two QSAC Members have declared their candidacy for the upcoming Co-Chair Election.

Joe Depinto and Scott Harper are the two candidates. Below you can read their letters to the Membership.

Joe DePinto

Dear QSAC Members,

I would like to announce my decision to run for the upcoming position of Co-Chair, and to be considered as a candidate for the 2014 Co-Chair Election.

I feel I have the experience needed to help run the QSAC Organization, as I had been on the board before it was handed over to the membership. I helped write the rules we still use today, and I held the following QSAC positions in the past; Board Member, East Coast Director, North East Director, Rules Committee, Tech Committee, and Special Projects Chairman.

I have great respect for all the volunteers of this club, I also look forward to hearing your comments, and chatting with you.

I can promise you all, if elected, I will work hard for you, and will do my best to listen to your questions, and concerns. Please consider me when you cast your vote for Co-chair this year.

Yours Truly,
Joe DePinto

Scott Harper

To All QSAC Members and Quarter Scale Racers,

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Scott Harper, I live in Clay Alabama, I am a member of the CCRC in Montgomery, Alabama, the current Special Projects Committee Chairman and the QSAC Web Master.

I am addressing you today to declare my candidacy for the upcoming election of Co-Chair for QSAC.

I am starting my fourth season of racing Quarter Scales. I became a QSAC member 3 years ago and after seeing a need for member involvement contacted the Co-Chairs and expressed my interest and willingness to "put my money and time where my mouth was". I have been involved ever since.

My R/C racing is not limited to Quarter Scale experience. I have been racing R/C cars for close to 30 years now. My racing has taken me all over the country to some of the biggest Oval Races in the country. My involvement with my local clubs has always had two goals in mind. Keep the racing fair and grow interest in our brand of racing.

My Quarter Scale experience, outside of racing has been in form of club Secretary for the CCRC along with two years of being Co-Chair of that same club. I have been involved in every facet of holding races, officiating races and scoring them while holding those positions. Even though I am not an elected official with my club at this time, I am still a very involved member of the CCRC and will continue to be.

Having worked with Todd since the time he won the election and has served as Co-chair there is no doubt that we will have a great working relationship and keep QSAC moving in the direction it is now, FORWARD.

My goal for my term as Co-Chair, should the membership decide to elect me will be this. To leave QSAC better than I found it. I am not saying I have all the answers, but I do know that together we can keep the momentum we have now and continue to grow.

Should you have any questions for me at all, please feel free to contact me via email or by cell. Email or 205-612-3812. Please keep in mind I do work during the day, sometime I can talk, sometimes not. Leave me a message or a text and I will get back to you.

Thank you,
Scott Harper

The approximate broadcast times and Race Schedule are on the left.


QSAC NCS Provisional Classes

Some information from the Leadership Team to all of the 2014 QSAC NCS Host Tracks.
Although it is not mentioned in this years rulebook it has been decided that each host track may include one provisional class to run during the NCS race.
This may only be one class and must conform to the safety requirements that all the other cars must adhere to as well as all of the racers being QSAC members, either yearly or one-event members.
These classes will NOT earn QSAC NCS Championship points. All monies from entries of the provisional class are retained by the host track.
The provisional class may not interfere with the QSAC NCS Race, meaning that should the need arise due to weather, time constraint or some other unforeseen circumstance, the provisional class must give way to the QSAC Classes so that those races can be completed.

QSAC Live!

OK quarter Scale racers, it's almost time for the first NCS race of 2014. We can't wait just for some warm weather, not to mention racing. Well 2014 is going to start off with a bang and we think everyone is going to love this.

Starting at LPR in two weeks it will be the debut of what we are calling QSAC LIVE! Live, as in live streaming at our races! That's right, QSAC has purchased a very nice HD video streaming camera along with a brand new web site just for live racing. People that have never seen a 1/4 Scale R/C car or that racer that has not had a chance to make an NCS race will now have that chance.
We think this will be a great way to introduce our brand of racing to people all across the country. This will be set up on Fridays and Saturdays. The mains will remain on the web site until the next live event for the racers that are competing. You can go home and see where you made your day or ended your day. With anything new there will be some bumps in the road, and we will learn as we get more informed about this new and exciting form of advertising and entertainment. So please bear with us as we all learn together and get things perfected. This all started at the end of last year when fellow racer Jim Wolfe came to us with an idea that he wanted to try at MPR. He explained how he thought this would work and how it could promote our sport that we all love. The original idea was Jim was going to have this as a fixed camera at MPR. Jim was going to purchase this out of his own pocket to make it all happen. After several phone calls and brainstorming we came up with an idea to make this a portable camera and something that we could use at all NCS races and even other large QSAC races. QSAC purchased the equipment and web site support and then a way we went. Jim as well as Mike and I have been working with the hosting company and developers. They are getting very close. The web site will be a separate site from our QSAC.ORG site. Both will have links to one another, as well as links to all of our sponsors, manufactures and suppliers and to other 1/4 scale related companies. If you see that we left someone out or you want to be a part of it, please let us know. What you see the first race probably will not be what you see at the next race. We will continue to try and improve and put things where they need to go. Please be sure to let us know if you see something that we can improve on or something you might want to see. The web site address will be

We should have the site up and running in the next week or so and LIVE racing at NCS race #1. Thanks Jim for all of your work and a great idea!

Sincerely your Co-Chairs, Todd Holloway and Mike Sadler ********************************************************

Engine Rules

There has been some questions about the use and allowance of Heli-coils on engines which in turn led to discussion in the Leader Ship Team.

After consulting the rules and looking at what is best for both competition and the racers the follwing is the result of the discussion. This will also be added to the Tech Table Section of the Website.

"Qsac rules" The two most important reasons for their existence is to level the playing field and to keep things affordable.

The new dual band tire is a great new tuning tool. But it can be difficult to distinguish it from a left side tire. Please take extra care and make sure it is signed by a QSAC official.

From 2013 rule book page 19

# 23. Fan housing engine mounting holes may be Heli-coiled for repair

In the interest of cost savings for the 2014 season QSAC will allow the use of heli-coil's in the mounting stud in the PTO adapter ( clutch adapter ) and the cylinder intake manifold 5-mm mounting holes. It must be understood that if not done properly this can cause an air leak which can get you disqualified. One of the test used in tech 2012/2013 was looking for air leaks that rendered the restrictor plate / manifold ineffective. If after testing QSAC determines there are no problems with this practice it will be included in the 2015 rule book.

If any QSAC member has a rule clarification or rule suggestion question please call or E-mail me.

QSAC Welcomes the MVQSR

QSAC welcomes the MVQSR to the racing community. MVQSR stands for Miami Valley Quarter Scale Racers. No it is not in Maimi Florida, they are located in Ohio.

This is the work of Ken Leiker, Mike Miller and Fred Murry. They have teamed up with Kil Kare Speedway, a Quarter Midget Track in Xenia, Ohio; to bring even more racing to the Quarter Scale Racers in that area.

This is a QSAC sanctioned track so QSAC memberships are required to race here. They have also been added to our Tracks and Clubs page,
be sure to check them out.


Intake Rule Clarification

In the never ending effort to make the racing the best it can be along with the Rules easy to understand and follow. The Leadership Team at QSAC has added some wording to the Intake Port Measurement Rules on page 19 of the 2014 QSAC Rulebook. There has been NO RULE CHANGE this is only some wording to hopefully make the rule easier to understand.
Mike Sadler, Todd Holloway - QSAC Co-Chairs


ECM Class Rules

Due to the ECM Class being a new class those "unforseen circumstances" have popped up and we here at QSAC are working to eliminate them as soon as they do. Far better for them to happen during the off-season than at the track. With all that being said, there have been some clarifications on the body panels and the windshield. All these are on page 23 under Body Measurements.

Mike Sadler, Todd Hollway-QSAC Co-Chairs


QSAC Membership List

Dorren has updated the QSAC Membership List as of February 1,2014. Membership cards will be going out soon. If you do not see your name on the list and you have joined, please contact Doreen.


2014 Rule Book

After some savvy QSAC members noticed some typos in the rulebook, corrections were needed.
There are NO RULES CHANGES, the only changes are on pages 7,8 & 14. This is where Super Late Model was still being referred to and not ECM. Those corrections have now been made and the latest version will have January 29, 2014 on the bottom of the pages.

Thanks -- Scott


ECM Spoiler Rule Clarification

In fielding some questions regarding the ECM Spoler Rule a clarification was made.

On page 23, Body Measurements; the spoiler rule now reads:
Spoiler 3" Maximum Height (measured from the deck), Width NOT to exceed outside of body.

The Rule Book has been updated along with the rules change page.
To be sure you have the latest Rule Book, look at the bottom left-hand corner of the pages and it should now have January 22, 2014 as the revised date.

New Dual Band RF Tire Compound

To all QSAC members, there has been a few questions about the BRP new right front tire. Instead of several different people trying to explain it I felt it would be better coming right from the manufacture. Todd Bishop was more than willing to do this for us. Below you will find the reason behind the new Dual Band Compound.

Mike sadler & Todd Holloway

Bishop Racing Dual Compound

I'm sure there will be a lot of questions regarding the new Right front dual compound tire that was approved by QSAC for the 2014 season. Let me explain how the Dual Compound will work and the reasons why this will benefit our racing.
For comparisons, the traction rating will fall between our 96 and 96Z compounds. Just like any tire, it will depend on chassis setup, and track conditions. The difference with the dual compound is the way it reacts to turning into a turn and how it reacts coming off a turn. When you enter a turn, it will have a tendency to not let the car over steer, and coming off a turn you will have more RR bite and less likely to get loose.
Overall, the Dual compound tire will help balance the chassis and help tire wear.
Any further questions you may have, e-mail or give us a call.
Thanks, Todd Bishop

Happy New Year

First of all, the entire QSAC Leadership Team hopes that all of the racers have had a joyus Christmas Holiday and wishes all of you a prosperous and Happy New Year.

As we are sure you are aware the Rulebook has been being tweaked for the 2014 Race season. All of that hard work is finally completed and the Rulebook is ready for you to check out. There have been quite a few tweaks to it for this season and in an effort to continually improve things you will find a list of things that have changed all in one place. Page 29 contains all of the changes that have been made to the rulebook.

We also have some other exciting news for the competitors in the 2014 Race Season.
QSAC is proud to announce our 2014 NCS Title Sponsor. This year it is QS Components. All of us here at QSAC are looking forward to working with the QS Components team in bringing you, the racer, a great 2014 race Season.
Not only are we welcoming a New 2014 NCS Title Sponsor, but we also like to welcome Waterjet Fabricating in becoming the 2014 NCS Race Seasons Pole Award Sponsor.
Along with these two new sponsors of the 2014 NCS Race Season, QSAC is going to provide the Hard Charger Awards at all of the 2014 NCS Series Races this season.

Our new Co-Chair, Todd Holloway has sent in a letter to all of the Quarterscale Racers. You can read it here. ********************************************************

2014 QSAC NCS Race Announcement

Here it is racers, the 2014 QSAC NCS Race Schedule.

The 2014 QSAC NCS Race Season promises to be more fun than ever before. This year the Series visits 6 different venues with the promise of close racing, even playing fields and a GREAT time to be had by all.

This year QSAC is trying something a little different. We all know how hard it is to be able to attend all the races. With the ever rising costs of gasoline, food and lodging the QSAC Team is hoping that this year a little of that becomes easier for our racers to be able to afford.

What we have done is combine the last two races into one week and are calling this week "SpeedWeek".
The last two races, race #5 in Ft. Dodge, Iowa will be held on August 26&27, a Tuesday and Wednesday. Then the Final Showdown at Veterans Park Speedway in Algona, Iowa on August 29&30. With the tracks being in very close proximity to one another, travel will be very easily done. Thursday will be a practice/travel day and as per the normal race schedule, the Final Showdown will be held on Friday and Saturday, August 29&30.

In scheduling these events in the same week and the fact that they are very close to each other, we are hoping to encourage more of you to attend these races and at a reduced overall expense to you, the racer. With Monday being a holiday, that also allows for most of you to have an extra day of travel without having to take time off from work.

Tony Evans, Mike Sadler & Todd Holloway

QSAC's own Discussion Forum

Thanks to the work of some dedicated QSAC members, we now have our own spot on the web to discuss QSAC business, happenings and anything else that pertains to Quarter Scale Racing and QSAC.

Unlike other forums in the past this will be an extension of the QSAC website. Here announcements will be made and be a place to discuss "Official QSAC business."

This will be a "QSAC Members Only forum." Any QSAC member wishing to participate will be required to register with their First name, Last name and QSAC number. This way everyone will know who they are talking with and keep everything above board.

When you register there is a security question, some of them are silly, some require a bit of thought. This question is there to keep out the AutoBots from gaining access to the site, Please do not discuss these security questions on-line, this will allow the Auto-Bots to gain access to the answers.

To access the New QSAC Discussion Forum goto QSAC Forum.



Letter From Mike Sadler

To All Members, 1/4 scale racers and manufactures,

I have been asked and have accepted DC's vacated position. Some of you may ask why I would subject myself to more criticism and harassment by certain elements of the 1/4 scale community. I have asked myself this question any number of times. It would obviously be easier to race my cars and just help work to make my own club grow. The answer is that I love 1/4 scale racing and all the fun and friends that go with it. I also feel an obligation to see this term to completion. I know and readily admit that I have made mistakes during my past terms. All I can say is that none of us are perfect and I always served to the best of my abilities. All i ask is that you give this a fair chance to work. I will take any and all phone calls, answer emails or questions and complaints at the tracks. These past couple of years there have been many false rumors, unfounded accusations, innuendos, conspiracy theories and out right lies that have given some the idea that there is a "CLIQUE" in the QSAC organization. This is patently untrue, sure we all know each other from the time we spend together at NCS events or phone calls and emails shared on how or what to do about events or rule changes, but we have all worked towards improving racing and the rules for the racer.

The fact is a lot of people lose sight of, is that QSAC is a rules governing body set up to provide a fair and level playing field for a 6 race national series for those racers that attend these events to battle for a national title, it also provides its members with a standardized national set of rules that can be used nationally making it easier for all members to travel from track to track. QSAC also affords the members and sanctioned tracks an extremely affordable insurance. It is not Big Brother telling you how to run your local races or to grow your club. I have always told sanctioned track owners to do what they thought was necessary to grow their clubs as long as it didn't violate safety. It is an organization to try and grow 1/4 scale racing, but not to put money in any ones pockets. I believe in our organization, and feel obligated to defend it when it's attacked. I would just ask that you pick up the phone and call and keep in mind there are 2 sides to every story, get them both and make an informed decision from there.

I have had several long discussions with Todd and look forward to working with him. We have discussed some fresh ideas and new concepts on how to improve 1/4 scale going into the future, one in particular that I believe will make a huge change that will repair some of the perception that is currently out there and I hope to help him achieve these goals. Maybe I can even help him steer clear of some of the pitfalls I stepped into. Hopefully in about 15 months, upon completion of this term, we the members, can elect someone with the vision and ability to work with Todd and carry QSAC on to greater success.

Mike Sadler



Dana Chittenden resigns as Co-Chair

Dana Chittenden has turned in his resignation as the Co-Chair and will not be completing his term.
As per the QSAC By-Laws and by unanimous decision of the Leadership Team it was decided that Mike Sadler would be appointed to serve out the remainder of Dana's Term.

The decision to appoint Mike was not only for his experience as Co-Chair but for his dedication to the QuarterScale sport and to QSAC.
This will also allow for the continuation of keeping one experienced Co-chair in place while electing a new one and keeping the "chain of experience" intact.

To the membership,
I dearly regret my decision to relinquish my position as co-chair for QSAC. This decision was not easy but it comes down to a balance of work and play. The past 6 months have afforded me another promotion at work and I can no longer effectively be a participating member of the leadership team. Please accept my apologies and may QSAC prosper in the future with a leadership team that has the balance to propel this club into the future. As my schedule allows I hope to see the dear friends I have made as a racer and a leader within the organization.

QSAC Co-Chair Candidacy

Todd Holloway has declared his candidacy for QSAC Co-Chair for the 2014-2015 Seasons.

My name is Todd Holloway. I live in Yorktown, In. Being from the Midwest and being born to a 30 plus year race car driver, racing is in my blood. Also in my blood is the will and drive to succeed at anything I try. Not always is that possible, but if I fail it is not because I didn't try or I quit.

I have been racing quarter scale since 1991 and before that 10th Scale. I have been a part of one of the oldest and largest QSAC clubs in the country (IQSR) for 22 years. I was president for about 16 years. To this day the club is still going strong and getting bigger and better every year.

I have decided to run for the QSAC Co-Chair position for 2014-2015. I have been a director for what seems like forever and feel it's time for me to step up and help continue what QSAC and its members have started. I feel like I can bring a lot of us back together and get back to having fun and enjoying what we love to do, the real reason we all started. Please consider me for your next Co-Chair position. Together we can make it fun again.

Thanks Todd Holloway



QSAC 2013 Rulebook Updated

There are NO RULES CHANGES in this version. There are only two changes. The first is the location for the 2013 Dirt Oval Nationals. The track, BMI, is no longer a dirt track so the location and date will be changed and will be announced as soon as we have a replacement venue for the race.

There is an additional page added to the rulebook that will list the changes that are made to the rulebook as they come about. You will find this on page 29. We feel that the addition of this page will help you, the Members, Racers and Race directors to find changes in the Rule Book

QSAC 2013 NCS Series Title Sponsorship

Thanks to the work of the The Co-Chairs, The Special Projects Committee and dedication of Mark Hogue of WCM to Quarterscale Racing and to QSAC, QSAC and WCM are proud to announce a partnership for the 2013 QSAC NCS Series.

"We would like to thank WCM for coming on board as the Title Sponsor for the 2013 NCS Series. This is going to be a great asset to both QSAC & WCM. With WCM showing support for the NCS Series, the Organization and its racers, as well as QSAC, showing that a partnership can be made with manufactures as we work together at growing the sport. The owners of WCM, Mark & Chris Hogue, & Terrence Garrett are just getting started in 1/4 scale, but want very much for the sport to grow, and are putting their money & name where they believe it will have an impact. With their support we are going to try a new approach, helping tracks & clubs to promote themselves and hopefully this will bring about new racers. This in turn helps QSAC as an organization grow and become stronger, forging stronger partnerships with Tracks, Manufactures and the racers"
Tony Evans Co-Chair

"I am truly excited and would like to thank WCM for coming on board and sponsoring the national championship series! This is huge for our hobby and is a definite show of strength and "will" to grow! Mark and the guys at WCM continue to show their pride in the organization and their "will" to make our hobby grow! What a class act!! 2013 has started with some excitement but none bigger than this!"

Coming together is a beginning.
Keeping together is progress.
Working together is success.
-Henry Ford
Dana Chittenden CO-Chair

"I am looking forward to working with the Team at WCM in bringing more exposure of Quarter Scale Racing to the masses. With the expertise of Mark Hogue and all the guys that are behind WCM, I can only see things getting even better for Quarter Scale Racers all over the country. With the combination of QSAC and WCM great things are on the horizon."
Scott Harper Special Project Committee Chairman

"We at WCM are very proud to support the QSAC National Championship Series. We hope this will help to open a new chapter in Quarter Scale Racing. WCM as the very first builder of Quarter Scale Race Cars, is dedicated to the growth of the sport with a promise to our customers to provide a quality race car, support parts and service. We hope that our fellow manufacturers and parts suppliers will join with us to help move Quarter Scale racing to the next level. Quarter Scale Racing is the best kept secret in all of motorsports, and if we all work together we can change that. We are looking forward to this years races and the renewed interest in our entire sport."

Website Updates

In a never ending attempt to keep all of the Quarter Scale Racers better informed as to what is going on here in QSAC there have been some additions to the website that we hope will make it easier for you to find the things you need.

There has been a new tab at the top created called "Co-Chair Corner". By clicking on this tab it will take you to a page where you can choose each Co-Chair and see the articles that they have submitted for you, the racers, to read. Here they will inform you of things they have been working on, want to work on, would like your input on or any number of things.

We thought that by doing it this way we will be better to keep the front page for the latest announcements or news.

There is also a section of the website being developed for you to see Tech Questions answered by Bill Scott, the National Tech Director. This will work by you simply emailing Bill your questions and we will publish the questions and answers here on the site.
