the usual suspects. what's changed? we're still running co27's, so it didn't get any slower. 19t just got faster (which 10.5's are). and mod is unchanged. making it sound slow isn't going to fool anyone. now the threat of not being able to run stock for the next ... eternity ... might put a few off.

i think this race is going to be awesome. great classes. no handouts. limited tire spending (for rubber). in short, more choices (though brushless is open to any mfg, yet we have to run a specific brushed motor - weak/lazy).

it's going to be fun to see what comes out on top in each class. and to see what everyone finds to complain about now that b/l and lipo are in fact legal.

hats off to roar for their efforts. much more to be panned out, but it has to start somewhere.

I think the ultimate goal is to keep some of the Factory Level guys out of stock, but these rules are not going to fix that. The new changes are awesome and a great start, but the same ole dudes are going to keep wheeling the stock rides.

The setups aren't that much different than running outdoors, just more traction. Hope to see you up here

Default Nats

Just hit up the Boss for the vacation days so I can run 13.5 rubber. I have a bumper with Todd's name all over it.
