As far as teching goes, I have not seen that in years at a club race. Hell most classes seem to be run what you brung. Back in the early 90's they weighted, checked the width length and motor after every heat and main. ahh, the good ole days. These days I just assume everyone is cheating. lol, I saw a sc10 guy running in the stock class here complain that he could not make the double, so he runs a 8.5 in the stock class. he still finishes dead last, but yeah.
I used to race at SRS a lot back in 2007 and 2008. Back then they used to race Nitro as much as electric at the track. The Slash/SC truck movement was just starting to get popular. 1/8 E Buggies were starting to take off. I had a Losi 8ight and converted it to an electric when the conversion kits first came out. I ran a four cell battery with a monster mamba max, and it was bullet proof. I think the initial cost is what puts people off, but after that I NEVER broke any parts on the car. Minimal maintenance. It was crazy fast and a lot of fun.

I recently ran in So Cal and noticed 1/8 electric is pretty big at some tracks. I think if people started to show up at SRS with 1/8 electrics it would become popular again.

Default Dirt Oval Late Model Class

What cars are people running in the Late Model class? Are there any established rules yet?

There are few custom works late models and some offroad cars switched over TRL 22 and B4.1
No real rules yet but 13.5 motors.. I dont think anyone is using boost.

There also is a B-mod class which is B4.1 ready to run with asc speedo and motor and radio and round cells..

Also a EDM class Mcallister EDM bodies with any offroad buggy based car. 13.5 motor no boost and any lipo and any speedo.

Then we have the sprint cars any car any motor any speedo!
