Default It's gonna be another great race!

Looking forward to another fun ATS race with a fun bunch of guys in a very laid back race and this time at a new location that's 1/2 hour closer to Calgary! Awesome!

If you need one more car to make a 12th mod field, i can put one together. Beware, I've never run 12th mod before, and have a limited amount of 12th stock experience, so I'll likely be a bit of a hazard. :/

Of course I'm in. Probably the least maintained car in my fleet with 10 year old original parts, hardest to drive yet the funnest to drive. Works with whatever tires you have you want to get rid of, never need to change gearing, any ill handling can be fixed by pointing the car straight and punching it. Timing the brakes to make the fast corners is always interesting.

So that's 8 classes now. Fun.

I have an suggestion, what if we ran the last round of qualifying in reverse order. What i think this will do is give the slowest driver in each heat the most open track. Giving the best chance to move up. Also is the weight for usgt 1450G? Heard so people think it is 1380. Just wanted to check.

Should be 1450g. As it’s not just only USGT but also VTA in one class. The VTA bodies and HPI/PF tires are heavier so it helps them compete. The weight also slows the cars down a little.
