Default What's your local track doing? 13.5's or 17.5's??

Our local track is going to continue to run the 13.5's in the stock classes. I'm curious to see what the other local tracks are going to do with the new 17.5 being the "stock" equivelant...

So, what's your track doing?

I'm pretty sure CRCRC is going to continue with 13.5 as stock.

17.5 for stock.

Related predict the future question: What will local 19t classes do next year when ROAR switches from 10.5 to 13.5?

Locally here some are running 17.5 as stock, and some are not changing from 13.5 until 2009, then they will go to 17.5.

There are still stock classes? J/K. If we do get a "stock" class together, it's 13.5's, but 90% of the racers in this area run mod!

13.5 and slower is stock at my track. Around here you will have a hard time convincing somebody to spend their hard earned money on something slower than a 13.5.

My local track doesn't have a lot of stock racers usually but when they do they are using a 13.5.

Actually I run one in mod and hold the track record

17.5 is considered stock here, but everyone runs 13.5/S. Stock because everyone already has a 13.5. Nobody wants to buy a new motor. The stock class has all but disappeared.

Outdoors, we run mod. If a stock class would come about it would be 17.5 and 27t. Indoors the track near me is going to the 2009 rules when starting in October. Everything but 1/12th will be the 13.5, 1/12th will be 17.5 or 27t.
