TLR all the way!!!!

Just get something. I am sure we can get you going. I have some spare stuff laying around.

And if you get a 3.0 I am sure we have enough starter boxes to go around.

Only thing left is a kit. No excuses.

Once you go gas nothing else compares.

Racing was great last night. 17.5 is really becoming a top notch class. I plan to bring out my ST if anyone wants to get a class going.

The A main was an awesome race to watch. Came down to the wire. I actually pulled off to see the action.

Can't wait until Wednesday.

I do wish we could run nitro on Wednesdays since no practice is allowed during the week. I am getting more than double track time with electric.

Thumbs up 17.5 sc!

ok everybody as of wed 10/30 we will be offering 17.5 short course and modified short course. The 17.5 class requires a non-boosted speed control i.e. "blinky" Should be an awesome class!

I don't think Comp went 17.5 SC,...I know as of 1Oct the 13.5 Buggy class is now, mod, and the 17.5 Buggy class is stock,....not sure if the same goes for SC. BUUUTTTTTT,..Talking to some of the other SC drivers, we're going Mod. We are also going to start up a SCB Class too. Thinking 13.5 Blinky for that. 5-6 racers dedicated so far,...and with the amount of SCB's out there already, should be a pretty fun class. It cost about $45-$75 on the SC10 to SC10B conversion. Someone verify,....

Umm, I thought that as of the SIGP finale, they were going all 17.5. I guess I will pop over there and post. I was watching they 13.5 sc class last weekend, they have more power than they need ofr HT. I am sure they would be fine in 17.5. Those that wanna run the 13.5 motors still can, the name of the class is all that has changed. But now you can boost or toss a 7.5 in there if you want.

I could be wrong with the 13.5 SC,.. But 17.5 SC,...I'll skip that. I just tossed in a 7.5 Velocity in the ole SC10 Mutt. Can't wait to lay down some rubber.

Track are doing it to better align with bigger races where 17.5 is stock and mod it what ever motor you want. If no one runs 17.5 sc and everyone is running mod sc, then no need to worry about cheaters, lol. Because the class is open.

here is some info for you tucson racers about CH. Looks like tucson is now 17.5 stock and mod for everything else.

In regards to the carpet races I do know they will at times allow 13.5, but the general concensus is 17.5 is the stock class now. We have been 17.5/mod since the start of October. In regards to the classes we haven't added, we have modified as needed.
