i know this is everyones idea in the past but its the idea of everyone is running a 13.5 leaving the racing close

as i suggested 13.5 or 10.5, need some sort of "non-mod" class. out west 10.5 4wd classes seem to be popular, and offer ALOT of action. that being said i hope there is a 10.5 class.

But this race isn't out west, it is in the midwest US (more of the north central US on the east side). And from what I have seen there really isn't anyone who runs a stock 4wd class (we all run mod in this area for the most part).

Not sure about that......From what I can tell this years race location is about 20 minutes away from last years location. Just north of Columbus. Check the link above.

Yes, this is Columbus... it looks to about 15 minutes from the track in Hilliard.

I agree that a 19t/10.5 4wd class would rock on a smaller track, but CRCRC's midwest tracks are significantly larger than any track on the west coast. Most guys that I know that run mod in their 4wheels actually motor UP for this track.

It seems that the jump deal is a touchy subject with the CRCRC crowd but there seem to be many electric guys that feel like I do.
the people who complained about the big triple just need to learn how to fly!!! FORTUNATLY im used to big air. if youve ever been to pheasant runn youll know what im talking about

i really enjoyed the big air last year.

Hell yeah big air is what seperates the men from the boyz... the jump just has to be made right though.

What were the 4WD classes last year? Maybe there will be a 4WD Pro Mod & 4WD Amateur Mod classes? Oh well, I'm game for either 4WD 10.5 or Mod.

How about this, if there is one type of motor that is being used, then it is still stock class racing. Just becasue it is a 10.5/19t class, doesn't mean it is no longer a stock class. The only differnce is the fact that it is a faster paced stock class
