Lets dump the WCICS rules for Mini. There's nothing wrong with the V2 chassis.

From what I understand, it has to be the M07 chassis.

Seems to be a good way to kill the class, IMHO.

Not true in anyway. Rules have basically been the same for years.

The class is still supported by racers who either are newer to the hobby or others that just want an extra class to run cause a 10 year old chassis still works and is just as fun.

Looking forward every year to the ATS races. Very relaxed environment and not having tech makes things a lot easier for guys like myself running a few more classes than the norm. I'm an idealist trusting the honor system works cause why in the world would anyone feel the need to not follow the rules to win races for trophies you probably couldn't pawn for any money.

See everyone in January!

​​​​​​Nothing has changed Matt. Wcics has no M chassis restriction for mini. I think it is was discussed on the forums a year, year and half ago but it never went any further. Not sure why that info came up.

Are their any restriction for raffles? I would like to host one for a couple of my lipos and maybe an Xpress Kit. Does that pose much of a problem?

Update: ATS will be banning the use of 3 or more year old Jaco Blue Tires as they cause you to go to slow impeding other drivers.

I wonder who would show up to an open TC tire race with old non-competitive tires in the most competitive class? Must be a privateer budget racer just field filling and having fun. Good for him.

ps. It’s looking like a great weekend weather wise and on the roads for the out of town racers!!!
