Hey, everyone! Just wanted to chime-in on this conversation to shamelessly plug our event lol Thanks mschumi101 for posting about it!
The United Sportscar R/C Racing Championship will be the first race of its kind to formally combine three class on the track at the same time! The three classes are USGT, Speed Passion LM-1 (Le Mans), and the McAllister Prototypes!
With the help of Gary McAllister, we will be introducing the McAllister Prototype Class during our race! After nearly a year of planning and research (I don't have much spear time lol), we decided to settle on utilizing the 17.5 Blinky touring car class as the building block for this class. 17.5 touring car is one of the most popular classes in the midwest area, so we wanted to still attract those racers, but yet still have the class fit in with the theme of the event. So just swapping the body to the DP bodies just seemed like a natural choice. Looking around the internet and R/C Tech, the general consensus is extremely positive with the setup. We will also be utilizing the Solaris Pre-Mounted tires as the legal tire for this class, since that is what most racers in the Chicagoland area use already.
