Sedan classes getting out of hand
just a few years back you could travel to other tracks with no real problems.
if it was: asphalt they ran rubber and carpet they ran mostly foam. most places ran 27T stock or Mod. about 2 years ago, when some wanted to run 19T usually it was Mod that suffered.
now it seems like sedan....and mostly sedan is under attack to numerous changes, but in too many directions and classes at the same time.
some class variation examples:
540 spec motors
Brushed motors and Lipo
BL and lipo
Brushed motors and nimh
BL and nimh
foam on carpet
foam on asphalt
rubber on asphalt
rubber on carpet
now talk of 4-cells
some of the above mixed add more & more class variations.
i find myself currently in the midwest and having had to travel this summer to 4 other tracks due to our track shutting down for 2 months
alot of indoor places i have went to, have racers so spread out due to tires, lipos, 27t, 19t, nimh, and BL. one track's own forum they coordinate what's going to be run and who's showing prior to race day. then in 4 spec/stock classes they have 3 to 6 in each class. if 1-2 don't show the class it's a biscuit. went to a asphalt track that run foams on the only electric sedan class they run 19T/nimh.
i'm finding it's harder to go to other places and race sedan unless you have alot of different equipment for variated classes being run track to track. to me the class has become a free-for-all to some degree. after reading various threads, i can see it's happening in a lot of places. for three tracks i went to at different times....i finally just started bringing my 12th car where all i had to worry about was a 27T or 19T motor change to run.
