I sent a note to Mike Boylan telling him about Spec 175 GT. His reply was "Awesome". So...get it ready.

Thank God there is no VW bodies. Other wise Rich here would be getting one. Then I would have to bump him off the track.

Isn't WGT pretty slow already? Although I've never been to Jeffs but hear it's pretty small so 17.5 might be perfect there.

I came to say you shouldn't split up an already small class but it sounds like there might be enough interest. Orlando just needs a small carpet track now.

It's not always about the speed. Jeff's outdoor track is very well suited for 13.5 WGT.

Wow, I had hoped that this would be a hot, new class. Seems like the idea has died on the vine.

Again I think this is a great idea just not the right time a class that was once very popular at most tracks has somewhat died out and is just now starting to make comeback wait a few months then this idea would be great but to split a Allready struggling class up is not I good idea imo

Default 175 gt

its a great concept but wgt is a struggling class. the idea of going slower in a pancar is not very popular. this hobby cost enough. buying more electronics to go slower is not the best idea
