Ok, I can do 4 cell, 6 cell, Lipo (sort of, I have the Orion 3200 which would be interesting to fit), stock, 19 turn, 13.5 and 9.5 (Speedpassion, not unlike a 10.5).

I've already run 4 cell stock and 19 turn and 6 cell stock at my local carpet track. 4 cell 19 turn was the most fun.

That actually brings up a point which has not been mentioned in a while: Whether or not this should be a brushless only class or brushed/brushless class
Why not making any other rules than the one mentioned above ?

Chassis: Any 200mm pan car chassis
Body: Any 2 door car body (preferably GT)

Every one come with his stuff and drive all together. The winner got the right to be the first to pickup a lottery ticket. That lottery ticket would correspond to a "lot" each one would bring for a few bucks. The lot would not have to be RC related.

The goal would be to "race" for fun and having a good weekend. I think the "racing attitude" makes more money than friends... .

Peace guys.

Sorry ZipZap...no connections...I know you could probably find a 10L3T or other older narrow chassis around somewhere (and I know Hyperdrive had a 10th road course car on their website)
I have a 10L3 but, its still my beater oval car.

I dont see a problem with things being open as far as battery and motor in the interim at least. IGT/AGT/GT10 *whatever the heck this ends up being called* (Cunningham has a thread for IGT in this discussion area) has a chance to be a very good class and a great companion to the VTA class

Yo guys, chime in over here if you're interested in having a section related to only pan cars. Maybe if we get enough people posting they do something about it.

If I run this class, and hopefully soon I will, I WILL be using LIPO. I plan on never using NIMHs except as RX packs in my nitro vehicles.

well once you get a hold of a 200mm chassis take it out to the track and run it and let us know how it goes. I know there was talk at some point of using LiPo outdoors

Ill most likely start with a 17.5 BL motor with LiPO in the Gen10X once I get ahold of it.

Don't wait up on me for test results. I'm buying my Xray 808 first.

That's fine bro. With the outdoor season getting going here in the next month or so hopefully we'll get some good data from folks. I know that much of the testing that has been done has been on carpet.

Anyway...Cunningham, you are the only one who has really come up with anything structured in the midst of all of this...are you going to talk to any tracks about experimenting with what youve come up with in the coming months?

Jackson R/C in NJ just had an informal meeting to get it's outdoor festivities up to speed as soon as possible. As that relates to GT10, we agreed that running with the loose rules of 200mm coupes, 4 cells and 19T/10.5 would get us into the season with as little fuss as possible. By mid-April I'll have an opinion to share with you guys on this class, including any changes. After seeing Bruce run the Speedmerchant at 360 in NY last weekend, I think the recipe is going to work out quite well!

Sounds good. I may make it up to Jackson sometime late summer. If yall are running GT10, I'd like to race it there sometime.

Still waiting on the release of the new 200mm cars. Once I get one, I can also take it with me to the several tracks that I go to in MD, VA, NC, and SC. Should be good exposure. Plus I can let others take it for a test spin to see how they like it.. Maybe I'll even take it to the Nats in June. Something to show off. Even get a test run if they let me. We'll see.

We are thinking we will wait to see how many cars come out and we are wanting to hear from the 235mm people that race, Yes we had setup rules for a series of racing that we call the Internatinal GT Series we hope it will catch on, but other than that right now we will see how this all falls into place.

We ran 235 6 cell with 19 turn or 10.5 brushless here in Colorado last year.

I think having the 200mm 4 cell with the same motor would be interesting. We could run the two classes together until we have enough for each class.

Don't want to dilute the classes to far with the additon of Trans-Am to the series.
