Slash class would be alright...but if there's only room for one more class then I vote for 1/8th scale electric 4wd (on the electric weekend)

Edit: Buggy and Truggy together? If that's what it takes to get the numbers up.

Someone on the CRC Director's Board start a poll!

Option #1: 8th Scale Electric Buggy Class

Option #2: Slash Spec 13.5 (or lower) Brushless Class

Guys if there is a 350 entry cap why is there a need to add these classes. I have been to this race for many years and the one thing they are never short on is racers. If they just keep the normal classes they will still probably have to turn people away. The one way to make a race start to die is to take the same number of people 350 and dilute the actual classes. The one thing I love about this race is seeing so many mains of just a few classes. I for one love my slash as well, but this is a big time travel race. I'm not going to lug that thing on the plane. Also I have to try and get time off from work for this and might have to sign-up latter then when they put the entry sheet out. I will be upset if I miss out on a class when I'm flying to this race because a slash is taking my place. Maybe a demo class would be ok, but not if it is included in the 350 entries.
P.S I borrowed a tech name. This really is Rob Betts I stand behind what I say and do it without a silly name to hide behind. This race has been great for years why mess with a good thing

Yo what are you doing at chicken littles house rob ? LOLz


I disagree with 1/8th electrics because on this day it's for electric 1/10th and we don't need no 1/8th scales tearing up the track. have that on the nitro race the 20th and on.

Slash class is about getting rolled by your buddy in the turn and not caring...a race of this caliber, you would have to care. Just doesn't make sense.
