I have a question about the rules for the outlaw rubber class, since you can run brushed or brushless in this class if you run brushed do you have to run the handout 19T? If so it doesnt seem fair to me that the guys running brushed have to run a handout but the brushless guys have a variety of motors to choose from. Not trying to start anything was just curious as to how that is going to work.

Anyone wanting to check some racing - I am at the Open Wheel Champs dirt oval race this weekend. Streaming live (only on my phone card low Internet speed here but still cool). Scotty is doing the calling. You might see and hear Tony Stewarts name he is racing here too.

1 snowbird entry, paypalled.
3 phone calls to the Radisson.. If you want to register through their local reservations(866-705-7676), call between 8?am and 6pm as they are closed otherwise. According to Katie, the cute sounding voice on the other end of the line, the front desk (407-396-1400) doesn't take them like the worldgateresort.com website says.

damn it i need the north tower..!

Why is there only one 1/12th oval class? No 13.5 or 10.5 classes? (I don't know about your area, but brushless classes are the most popular this year, not 19T.)

Actually, scratch that last sentence. Let's put aside what we each feel is the popular classes for this year. What's wrong with offering multiple classes with a minimum signup on it?
For example you could offer:
1/12th oval 27T
1/12th oval 13.5
1/12th oval 10.5
etc... but you could say, it takes 30 or more to make a class. (30 is just a number I chose, but could be changed to anything.)

You could set a minimum amount and a cut off date. After the cut off date, any classes that did not receive 30 or more entries would be dropped.

1/12th is the second most popular oval class. If Snowbirds limits the 1/12th classes, you won't really know how popular it could be.

What happened to 1/10th 6-Cell Mod? That seems to be dropped from the list too. If enough racers are interested in any of these pan car classes, let them race it. It does not take any longer to run them.

dude how do you figure. 12th was like the 4th largest class last year. 12th might be big where you are but down here it's a filler class and up north not run in many places at all.

6 cell mod. was just plain to fast. and it was a struggle over the past few years to get entries.


i think there enough classes right now
