Their limited buggy would be our 19 turn class which is also our biggest class.
If we do a 1 day event we'd probably run 19turn buggy, mod buggy, mod 4wd, mod truck. Thats what we will proably run for our NOV 2nd race. Buy running a 19 turn class with motors very close or the same as mod it's a good stepping stone. The guys can compare their time to the mod guys and know when they are ready to move up. Also when they move up the don't have to relearn how to drive because they just put a new fast mod motor in. I remember back in the day when I moved out of stock to mod and I was horrible for a few weeks just because I had never driven that much power. It's more for the up and commers and the weekend warriors. So when you come visit even if you run a 10.5 like I do you and the the other top guys from your track would run mod and the rest of the guys would run 19 turn. The some guys in 19 turn are the future mod guys. It works really good. In winter when we are in full swing we might have 20-30 guys in 19 turn buggy alone

from the classes you listed the only class I see hurting in a 1 day format would be the 19 turn truck. Truck seems to be thin most places and cutting it into 2 classes might really hurt. Slash is hit or miss a ton of us love it but to skip another competitive class for a fun one might be a tough sell.

Yeh with lipos and brushless it's easy. His only worry is if his races are close he has to have an extra marshall. Better bring Jello

Yea i was inquiring more about the marshalling. I am hoping for a big turnout cause it's tough when you iron man it.

your busy for 6 heats each round.

You and I did the iron man last trophy race. 3 classes in 6 heats. That was a busy day. Race, marshal, race, marshal, race, marshal...20 minutes to prep your stuff to do it all over again.
