I know people are saying smoke free, but is it realy?

No cars will be allowed to warm up or be ran in the heated pit area. There will be room to pit in the Equine arena around the track if you want to run or warm up before your heat race. If you pit in the heated area and your racing nitro, you'll need to take your car and stuff into the Equine arena to warm up.

why in gods name are these guys not letting electric run with nitro? I know it's unfair how much longer the electric guys can run w/o a pit so a simple fix.. you make them do a manditory pit if they don't have a battery swap. In long mains they will most likely still need 1 swap that takes a LOT longer than a quick shot of fuel so it evens out nicely. Pro-series all normal events all allow mixed electric/nitro now it's time to accept change. I ran my erevo with truggies and beat most of them all last year.. now I have an 8ight-e truggy and a 8ight-e buggy and I would love to go to this race and compete in at least two of these classes.. 3 is a lot of work LOL but man it's fun

Electric and nitro are 2 different classes. It would be one thing if it was a club race and we tossed 2 guys running electric in with the nitro. I wouldn't have a problem with running them in their own class but not mixed into the nitro class.

Electric has its own track.... The little one... I saw an 8ight -E run and it will out perform a nitro car anyday. INSTANT acceleration, alot faster....

there is no way I'm going to argue that statement. I totally agree.

My opinion would be that the big scale cars run in their own heats on the large track. The small track was intended for 1/10 scale. I'm not sure as of right now if this will happen. The speed and rip the brushless have can't be seen on the smaller track.

1:8 all belongs together, user can choose their power plants, when it comes down to it the driver is going to win or loose the race not the car. I could build a brushless truggy or buggy capable of 70mph with instant power and that wouldn't help me win any races.

Different animals... Just like 1/10th has Gas truck and Electric.... Different animals... Different classes. Maybe once it gets bigger I am sure there will be classes at ALL large races for the 1/8th Elecs....

YES, we are offering a Slash class. Rules are simple, the ONLY thing you can change is the body. NO MODIFICATIONS ALLOWED.... Traxxas wants the class to be a spec class so no changes allow except the body. What that allows you to do is match you paint scheme with the rest of your cars so there isn't 10-15 cars going around the track that all look the same.

Pre-registration deadline is Feb. 1st. After that the price will almost double if you wait until the day of the event. Pre-registration includes your pass to get into the entire complex as well as parking and of course your entry to the race. It's a great value and it's guaranteed to happen being it is indoors.

Some may already know all this but I thought I'd post a reminder.

See you at the races.

If its gas then run gas together.. And electric runs with electric. Keep the running both together for the club level.
