Not sure but this might be helpful to you:

Scroll down to the part where it has "SWB? MWB? LWB?"

Wow. Nice looking track. I think most of the Orange County mini freaks will be racing at LaMirada this Sunday. Also your 2nd and 4th Sunday schedule conflicts with O.C. Circuit. However, I'd like to race there on occasion and wish you luck on your program. I'll see how many guys would like to try it.
If I may make a suggestion, use the TCS rules as a basis for your mini program. Open it up on tires though as Tamiya tires are expensive, hard to get, and are pretty much junk. We ran a very successful program at the now closed SoCal Raceway for nearly 3 years using that format
