Default 2014-15 Mike's RC world SNOWS series

okay, the 2014-15 SNOWS series is fast approaching, this is the largest club racing series in the northwest and Mike's RC World in Bellingham, WA is the place to be in the winter. here is the tentative plan, subject to change..........

October 4th-soft opening
October 11th-1st points race
October 25
November 8
November 22
December 6
December 20
December 27 or January 3-track rebuild
January 10-special event to replace annual SC event
January 24
Febuary 7
Febuary 21
March 7
March 21
April 4th-awards race

series will be best 8 of 11 races

Classes-
Novice-2wd 1/10th scale only, RD has the right to move driver if need be
17.5 buggy-blinky ESC, same rules as last year
Open 2wd buggy
open 2wd truck
open 2wd SC
4wd buggy
4wd SC
open TLR mini 8ight 1/14th scale buggy and truggy, depending on entries we may split them if enough of both. class open to the TLR brand mini buggies and truggies

personal transponders highly recommended.

stay tuned for the vintage class details and dates, probably same as last year, every third race or something..........

also please read carefully---NO PIT SPOTS WILL BE AVAILABLE TO RESERVE TILL THE OCTOBER 11TH RACE. don't call the store and offer to pay more and don't expect to get a spot on the 4th, for it to be fair to everyone they wont be available till the first points race on a first come first serve basis. be nice about it, don't be a A hole to the awesome people who allow us to do this each winter. its just a pit spot...........

okay, have at it.......

Did you mean to say 1/14 scale instead of 1/8th scale??

open TLR mini 1/8th scale, buggy and truggy, depending on entries we may split them if enough of both. class open to the TLR brand mini buggies and truggies..

The Losi link shows three mini 8 versions, one being the AVC radio system. I haven't tried AVC but from what I read, it is an unfair advantage.

Should AVC radio systems be allowed or not allowed for this series (in all classes)?
