General Rules:

1. No bitching or nasty comments between any racers. Both will be asked to leave. Second offense unfortunately will not be allowed to return.

All monies above the nightly costs will be returned as either winnings or door prizes. This will be determined at the time by the race director.

Thank you

Sounds good to me! 'Bout time we get a thread about RACING in LAWRENCE!
At least it gives us something to discuss!

Who's the race director. Is this Lornes lap counting system or ???
Why is there a limit on the capicity of a lipo? Whats that matter.
I'm planning on buying a late model body and running it, 4300 class 10.5 class, I'm not worried about measuring anything as long as it sets low and my wheels line up. Is this en-tire talk or 6th street...............

A "Gearbox class" for 2WD trucks & buggies. Also an unlimited Monster Truck class! this one could be gas or electric, to be divided if turnout allows. Also, I think we should allow a little leeway in the Nascar class to let people run the bodies they ran last year, the HPI Stocker w/ touring car rear spoiler. I think the Mah limit on Li-Po's is a bit much, though.

i'd think the more the miah the bigger the battery, which means the heavier the battery theSLOWER the car.

i would like to suggest the rules be finalized in the next 3 or 4 weeks and sufficent amount of copies available at Georges hobby house. so current and new comer racers can pick up a copy. once the rules are set then we can have a more structured idea of classes and where ROGER can spend our money. i also urge supporting your local hobby store as much as possible. yes the internet is cheaper. but remember shipping. no i don't know why some things get to rogers faster than others however if he can't have it in 4 to 5 days than yes order it elsewhere. you can't race with a broken car. the EN-TIRE parking lot is still under rogers guidance this year. i"m just another racer there.

Guys i will try to do more racing here in town also this summer. 3 years ago i talked with alot of you local guys about possibly getting back into racing. well i did. the 1st year was onroad only. the 2 year i continued to onroad racing and also started nitro 1/8 buggy off road racing and also relate an Ole flame with getting back into electric off road racing. i plan on continuing my RC racing for a couple reasons. 1: i have a loving wife that i think enjoys being at the races almost as much as i. 2: this sport is my passion so as long as I'm able to pull the trigger i am. i hope we have a fun season this year and get some new racers showing up more. good thread DOC!

This should turn out to be pretty good.
Having the rules in writing at Rogers is a great idea. I also like the idea of a box stockclass. It should bring in more racers, people who are new to racing or on a budget like we all are.

The rules on the late model bodies. Whats a flopper and a wickerbill. I'm not a seasoned oval racer. I'd just like to buy a body and use it.

I will try to make more races this year as well.
I'll be running the 10.5/4300 class.

I'm guessing we'ed start racing in April sometime. Roger will probably post it or maybe we can all agree on a date. The lap counting system they're talking about is one you download to a lap top.
