no ,i do mean 1/12 , alot of them dont make run time running the small track! ,but it may not be 100% decided yet . come out on the next clubby and give it a whirl under a timed event .

If anything stock should be running the shorter track, not 1/12. In 2009 when lipo JUST came into 1/12 racing I ran lipo and was making runtime okay when I worked it all out and was the top placed lipo car (2nd). And the fastest lap times for 1/12 and Modified were the same. They will make runtime on the full track if people arent silly with their settings..caugh caugh bradd caugh 8 minutes is 8 minutes, they are covering the same distance overall, so track length will have little to do with runtime. It will also be a headache for practice and people running 2 classes, will have to learn 2 different tracks.

My 2c..

Antoni

I think what chad meant on small track for the 1/12 scale is the layout for electric TC used at the national event for EP held at whallan which is counter clockwise not the mini small layout......chad's also right ppl running 1/12 scale come down on their clubby day so they see and sort which will be used the whole track or the electric layout(counter clockwise).....

I'm not sure it counts when half that time is spent parked on the grass

I'm sure the 12th guys will be fine with run time on the big track, pretty sure a few of them did it fine last year

12th scale is more than fine doing a full lap of the track

If your quick on the stright but unable to get round the rest of the track without dumping then think you need a little re think
