Default no booing

whats this thread all about? do you see supra's running against ferrari F-1 cars? exactly. even with touring cars, there are different kinds, like street cars, and race cars. and not everyone thinks like you and maybe not everyone can handle a fast motor (like myself) and would rather stick with stock and do nice corners rather than crash around with a mod. AND not everyone (like myself) can afford reedy kr's. i race stock and i am glad they have it or else my car would be gone, crashed, blown to bits, and if ur club says all stock, maybe go talk to the guy see if you can also hav mod races alongside the stock...don't just booo to stock

just what i think

you may be right that everyone shoudl race mod, however, what would an entry level car be like fora newb? or better yet.. how would the jump be from 540 style tamiya motors to the hot pace that a 10x2 or so cranks out! .. can u imagine how many people woudl be turned away due to cost.. or.. can u imagine how big the fields would be in 540!

agree to what?

and if ur club decides to and no one else wants to then tell them! don't just **tch about stock, yes the car is capable of more, but not everyone has a billion dollars to spend on a billion sets of batts and chargers.

iam not sure of the price conversions.but 3 packs of matched batts for mod racing.the race organizers dont care and wont listen.it hasnt effected the results from the change over were all pretty much the same but its annoying that i bought top of range batts for mod and 2000 wud do[even be better bcause more voltage].they wont split classes eighther.

How about the people that can't afford the 60 pound packs for mod? Stop thinking about yourself for a while and just try and enjoy racing. You have the best gear out right now so that should last you quite a while and if your not winning then you need to work on your wheelmanship anyway.

I would love to run mod but can't afford it.......brushes, com lathe, new motors.... it all add's up.

What are you, drunk? Trinity would raise prices due to "shortages". High demand = High prices

But the track directors are screwing up, they are there to run races that the racers want. Get others organized and demand it. If you have enough people then they have to listen or you have to start your own track.

As a racer(stock and 19t spec only) and a retailer, I can only say that it would be very difficult and ,in my opinion,a sad day when we have no stock racing. As previously stated,a new racer could not possibly understand the equipment needs to run mod only. Not to mention the obvious expense. As a retailer I can honestly say that one of the hardest things to sell to a potential buyer is the cost factor of rc. How many people REALLY know the difference between a Toys r Us rc and one that we race.
Your problem should not be directed at stock class racing but to your club director(s). If your club has a contingent of drivers who wish to race mod...then there seems no reason why they should eliminate it. Assuming you are paying for the oppurtunity to race ,it would do them no financial good to say no. Try talking to them. Good Luck
