Ran our first race today with 3 cars. Its gonna be cool!! Cars all had different motor battery combos but mainly because not everyone had everything yet, but we kept the speeds close and had a good time.

Here's mine with a 'Cuda on the way.

Thumbs up

Keep the photos coming, guys. They all look fantastic. And if your home track is planning on running this class with our rules, let me know and I'll add your tracks to the Track list on the website.

I have compiled a list of car final drive ratios, and will be posting it to the website later today for track and racer use. It may help some guys chose cars, as if they wish to run 17.5 brushless, they MAY want to avoid a car with a rather high internal drive ratio if at all possible. Even still though, by my rough calculations, even cars like the TC3 (2.5 IR) can hit the number with a little effort.

Yup, the part numbers for the wheels and tires are in our rulebook, but the fronts are 0mm offset (26mm wide) and the rears are 6mm offset (31mm wide). They fit under the 200mm bodies like you see in the photos. All of our cars are 190mm electric cars only.

Entry form is available here.

Classes and Rules:
  • 12th Scale Stock Advanced: This class follows ROAR rules for all car specs. Motors allowed are ROAR-legal Brushed Stock Motors, or 17.5 Brushless systems (no tuning rotors allowed) Batteries are a 4600mAh limit. 8 minute heats and mains.
  • 12th Scale Novice: This is a Michiana RC Class that runs all the same rules as stock, but uses standard Mabuchi 540 motors. (We sell them at the track dirt-cheap) This class is intended for the novice racer. 5 minute heats and mains.

  • Stadium Truck Stock Advanced: This is a Michiana RC class that runs on the carpet with full carpeted jumps & a tabletop. Foam tires are recommended (although rubber tires are permitted, but any SOFT knobbies must be ground down to a slick-like status) Trucks follow ROAR rules.

Motors are open (brushed or brushless). Batteries are open to most anything. LiPo's, however, are NOT allowed in this class (no hard cases)
  • U.S. Vintage Trans Am: This will be an exhibition class for this race, and will run based completely on the U.S. Vintage Trans Am rules and class structure. Please see www.usvintagetransam.com for complete rules and contact information.
General Note on Classes: Often times, we get asked about "other" classes, such as Modified or 19 turn classes. We will purchase trophies for the above listed classes ONLY, as they will be personalized to the class. You ARE welcome to race a class not listed above. However, we MUST have a minimum of four to a class (for marshaling). If you show up with the only intention of running, say, TC Modified- understand there is the possibility that you will NOT be racing. Keep that in mind, please. We'll do our best to accommodate you, but will adhere to the rules, and will not compromise (I.E., there MUST be four cars, we will NOT allow you to race in another class that's "close")




************

I'm planning on bringing both of my cars out there on the 27th. It should be a little over 2 hours or so from the Chicago area and is close enough for Michigan, Illinois, Ohio and Indiana touring car guys to come and get a taste of this great class. Hope to see you there.

I'm pretty sure that I'm going to a college in the same town my Jr. and Sr. year of college(Bethel). I enjoy running stock rubber at Trackside, but I want to build a Trans Am car when I go away for college. Hopefully they make more Trans Am bodies...I want something different
