That's right. Also, Orion, Novak, and LRP 13.5's are legal in stock.

Edit to add: Billy beat me to it. :-)

Can't wait for the race, it's gonna be a good one. The 4wd Mod class should be big this year with alot of people getting new cars.

Switchs, X's, Tapers will probably work too. I just bought some tires and I think they were about 14ish for panthers. I will have to try to find the receipt.

I hope to make this race too. Why run oval? Don't get me wrong, I'm all for it. Electric only on oval? The only oval vehicle I have is nitro.


Oh and is there a stock day (Sat.) and mod day (Sun.)? This will be my first time to attend.

It is all ran together. 4 qualifiers on sat, mains on sunday. The oval imo is too small to really get a nitro car wound up. Its perfect for the 1/8th scale cars, and not bad for the stock edm's.

I see now. I was just on the site looking at the pics of the oval. Thanks for the reply.

So for the bigfoot, I'd be better off picking mod or stock and go with it. I liked the Hutch fall classic, when they had stock on sat. and mod on sun. Easier to switch stuff and run more races. Would it be worth it to try that at the Bigfoot?

buggy rear: Panther switch 2.0 super softs, Proline evil twins or holeshots M3, Losi Tapper pins or x3000 pinks. Foam: Trinity bomb 1, proline 2 stage, or losi stock

Buggy front: Proline 8175/8176 M3, Losi 3 rib pre-scrubs, Red or pink. Panther bobcat softs, or super softs. standard foam in all.


Truck, pretty much the same as buggy.

Yeah, I'd like to run stock and mod with my truck and buggy. So is the hard case lipo still in effect? The lipos I'll be wanting to use are 6000 soft. They are for an Electric 1/8 conversion. I specifically wanted those so I could swing both ways. I could go from 1/8 to 1/10 easily. But I'm just asking. Trying to save a couple hundred bucks. LOL. It's not easy in this hobby.

Yup hardcased rule is in effect. Someone had posted that maxamps was making a hardcare possible to put on the softcells.

Cool. Thanx. Still don't understand why the hardcase lipos are required at some places. I've been reading about how there is no difference. But I don't know. Not like I manufacture them or anything, or designed them. So enough about that.

What's the turnouts like on average weekends in Enid?
