just like in nascar when, the cup guys race in the busch series i dont see many of the guys getting any better when they are killing them on the track.
Racing with the fast guys will help you!! You will be able to see there lines, how fast to go through the corners, when to brake, when not to brake. But if you are in over your head with guys a lot faster than you and always trying to stay out of their way-then you will not enjoy your track time. Race the sportsman class and have FUN, if you end up being faster than the other sportsman guys-great. You could always bump up, at the psycho nitro blast this year they did a reshuffle after rd1 and they guys in sport than would have placed 30 or higher was bumped to pro. Same thing happened to me last year at my first rc pro event, I signed up for sport, then after the quals I got bumped to open.
You could always race sport and open for the extra track time, I know a few who did this at the AMS and they all finished better in the open class. We were thinking of making the drive to LA for this event, but I will have to see how work goes, also is getting close to rc pro finals in Texas.

I think splitting the classes has more to do with allowing the slower guys the opportunity to win prizes, trophies and titles...... If you don't split the classes then us normal guys would never have the opportunity to win anything..... The truth is that qualifying will separate the skill levels of the drivers anyways...having different classes is more of a formality IMO .... It sounds alot better to be Sportsmen A-Main winner then it does to say winner of the F-Main ...........

Ok boss, few things to consider. I normally could care less about correct grammar however, you're typing is especially agonizing. When using a comma you're seperating two independent claues. Every comma that you have used in this thread has been unnecessary. Speaking for myself here, I can't take one word you say seriously because you butcher the English language. Take one bit of pride in your posts and you won't be having these problems with everyone making fun of you.

If you think the mod engines are what's getting them the win you have a LOT to learn. That's all I'll say...

Hop ups dont make a driver a better driver.......

That being said.. I can go buy EVERYTHING Adam Drake runs off the shelf... and still be a crappy driver. I have a heavily modded speed motor... but you know what? I drive just as fast with my Odonnell engine.
