First off this is an OFFROAD series. Not an ONROAD series with jumps. Going to all smooth OFFROAD tracks would be completely boring and invalid to me. Next, with several offroad tracks shuting down we should be appreciative to those we still have regardless of the condition of the track. Finally, The reason that Hot Rod, OC/RC and Pegasus have the biggest electric turnouts is because they are the only 3 electric tracks in so cal?

Keep the suggestions coming in because I love hearing them but lets keep them logical and reasonable. Common sense goes along way when used!

Being my Rookie year personally I like the different tracks no matter what the condition since we all run the same track, who can handle the conditions the best.... thats fun to me. but everyone has there own fun so not everyone is going to agree on this one. Thats all part of it too.

I think the the owner of Hemet should have been better to us but at the same time it works both ways. At this point it doesnt matter.

I like Franks Idea of the classes not to much but not to little. I would add Electric 1/8 scale to the list and see if that class will grow.

Cannot wait for the 09 season to start already. If I didnt tell you before Jimmy Thanks.

Late

Cool

I know I have said this in the past but you only get upset because you know it true. I think I saw FRANK say this as well.
If you are sponsored at any level you should be running with the expert/ mod boys......

I think the slash has proven it is here, so the class stays.
I think it was FRANKS classes the best(sorry I could not find them to re post)

Any how the tracks are the tracks and a series is just that. A Total So-Cal Series. Not just one track that you like.

JUST my Complaining but it does have merit


[QUOTE=lbckevin;4984133]I think the classes were fun to run this year.


I like the idea of eliminating expert and have everyone run together in stock.

Jimmy's plan to bump up the top three is great.

My last thing was if you are sponsored in any way by a motor/battery , speedo or chassis you should be running the expert ( now, superstock and mod classes)

This is an interesting topic, but one thought keeps coming to my mind. You lucky [email protected] actually get to race an ALL ELECTRIC series!!! Up here in the Midwest we only get to race electrics when the nitros come out to play. We always race on 1/8 scale tracks, and the closest electric races are 9-11 hrs away (CRCRC, Rumble in the Rockies, Omaha, Canada). The last time we had a B main in an electric class was 2008 RCX-Games. They had one Mod class for all skill levels combined and then they decided to run all 17 entries in the A anyway.

We're going to make the 11 hr drive to ROAR nats in 2009 as Omaha is the closest all-electric racing we'll probably ever get. Regardless of your classes and track conditions, remember how lucky you are to have enough turnout to have events and series dedicated to electric!

Well both. Jimmy gave me some of the rules and I posted them. There may be other tweeks to come but this answers most of the big questions people have been asking about.

I am still on the fence with SS 4wd, It might really thin out Mod 4wd. Also what about Electric 1/8?

Yeah SS 4wd will thin out mod 4wd but that will be ok. I think that will be a great class for a lot of drivers who have 4wd and hate fixing them!

Electric 8th will have to be a write in class. Jimmy has not seen any interest at HRH or people asking about it. If enough show up he said he will run a class.

With the elimination of class bump ups, are there any rules about people returning to a class they were bumped out of?

No he was talking about bumping up the top 3 from the stock classes into expert stock. Since there is only "stock" and no expert stock will these guys be allowed to run stock still?
