Keep the Foam Stock Class as is(27t handouts and NiMH only).

An added Rubber Stock Class with mixed 13.5/27T motors and NiMH/LiPO battery choices would be sweet! Just tech the minimum weight for all cars as usual to help keep things even.

The added torque of the BL motor really shows while running foams due to the rediculous amount of forward bite you have on carpet with foam tires. On the otherhand, the difference isn't as big on rubber tires due to the reduced amount of forward bite. This would make for some close racing between BL and Brushed on rubber tires.

there is going to be a big variance in the power produced by the handouts anyway.i think it will make it a more even playing field and less hassle.

I got about 85% of an Assassin, all the important stuff. Lots of stuff. PM me if anyone is looking for one.
