The wind and rain kept people away so there wasn't a race. Several people came out and helped get rid of the water so we could do some practice. The water actually helped a lot so it's packing in nice!!

What is the planned length of the E-buggy mains? I'm going to buy some batteries soon, so I would love to save some cash and go for the 4000-5000 mah batteries but if the mains are 15 min that won't cut it. Thanks! Great track layout Russ!

I think the 1/8 electric mains are 10 min with 7 min qualifiers. Same as ROAR. I ran the 5000 Ace packs and could get 15 min easily last year

last year the mains for e buggy were either 12 or 15 minutes from my recollection. I would go for 5000+ mah batteries to be safe

I would guess it will be what ever the EP guys want to run.
Main can be from 5-20 mins for the Amain. per rules.

I only made it out once last year and it was a 15 min main. I was just wondering if they changed it because about half the field ran out of juice after about 11-12 min. Good point Token, if we want to run shorter or longer we should just ask for it. I'm voting for 10 min mains, that's what all the big races are, and that's how long my attention span is.

First race of the year seemed to be a good turnout with 10 heats. everyone seemed to have a good time with the new layout!! Should be more and more fun as the traction gets better and better as well.

I ran Blue Hybrids in the 2nd qual and the main, think Kody ran the same. Jrod ran Impacts and Grid Irons. Crossbows were a good safe tire. Agnon was running the Khaos tires and they seemed good. If it has tread left on it you should be ok no matter what it is!
