I wished we did 1 qual and 3 mains. I like racing more than qualifying.

But every track in Ohio deos 3 quals, 1 main.

after running 3 qualifiers do racers want to run 2 10min amain for a total of 20 minutes.
or just run 1 10 minute main?

No my track for electric just does 3 heats of 1/8 E truggy and one 15 min main.
For E-buggy i dont know how long their mains are but they can do 15 min + with no issue.

The Regional series in the NW runs 3-10 minute A-mains. Double mains would be better as it gives a driver more runtime and a chance to better there results if they had an issue in the first one.

I want run as many mains as you'll let me! More chances to win a race, less pressure and stress if you bomb one.

thats is how i feel!!! nitro run and a club level at lease 20minutes, i would like to see doulbes for us e 1/8, in 10 minutes we can put more power down on the track, double amains lets ur stuff cool off and gives more run time.

I hate wasting half the g'damn day running qualifiers. Run 1 or 2 qualifiers for like 3 minutes each to seed positions in mains so we can get the day over with already.

Then use the extra time saved to run longer mains where you don't get screwed because you were taken out in the first turn. You actually have time to make up some ground.

RC racers are way too long imho.

A normal club race for us is 2-6 min heats and 1 10min e main or 15min nmain.
A jacked up club race is 2-5 min heats and AA10 min emains and either a 20 or 30 min nmain depending on how many out of towners come to run nitro and what they want.

Only need 1 qual. Everyone was on the track during practice anyways. After the 1st main you can use the results as the starting order for the next main. run the starting order for the last main backwards. (slowest car in TQ)

There's alot of cool things that can be done. Doing the same thing over and over expecting different results, is the definition of insanity. If we want RC to grow again, then trying something different and fun may be a good idea.

I like the idea of 1 seeding qual and then 3 mains... How would the mains work as far as overall winner? Most laps? Can rcscoring pro b setup to do this? Like triple main setup of some sort??
