26 heats, lets say an average of 8 per heat 206 entries. also the lipo brushless class is a demo class.
hopefully there are no charging issues with any of the lipo cells and ROAR will see they are as safe as anything else out there, and electric can compete with the popularity of nitro racing in being able to offer 10 to 20 minutes races.

track looks very good and the times seem to be sizing up for some great AAA mains today.

Yeah too many classes for sure....slowing the hobby down.

Should have:

2wd Mod
4wd Mod
Truck Mod
^ for all the Pro's and hot shots.

2wd 19T (or Stock)
4wd 19T (or Stock)
Truck 19T (or Stock)
^ for amateurs and have some kind of upgrade point system to boot sand baggers up to Mod class (because if you are killing it in 19T, you should be racing with the big boys).

Triple A Mains for Mod class only

Keep the Demo Lipo class for now until it is legal for Mod class.

THATS IT....Forget Jr, Master and all the other crap...waaaay too many classes, need to trim the fat.

Amen. The class arrangement for this race looked like an on-road race.

the reason there is so many classes is because they combinded the stock and mod nats together.I beleive stock nats only had 40 entries total last year.so either it was combind the two or not have a stock nats at all.

but in my opinion i think they should have done away with the masters and juniors class, and im sure lipo will be legit by next nats so they wont have that class. that would be 3 classs they dont have to worry about

JUST MY OPINION THOUGH
