1) What city and State do you race at the most? Carpet or Asphalt?
2) Whats the average total turnout where you race most?
3) What's the most popular class where you race most?
4) What's the "class of the future" that people are talking about where you race most?
1. Orange, California. Asphalt (on road rubber tire)
2. 3-4 heats
3. 13.5 and 10.5
4. 13.5 and 17.5 (i think)

Welcome to the funeral, or to a thriving racing community?
When someone is intent on excelling in an otherwise laudable manner, does he not desire to inflict pain on others by means of his exalted status and enjoy the envy he arouses? Is there not an anticipated delight in an artist's ability to defeat his artistic rivals, which heightens his euphoria in creation?

City: Jackson, MS
Type: Parking lot / Bass Pro / Asphalt
Entries: 50 plus
Freq: 6 times a year
Top classes: Pro Stock and Stock (we make the better drivers run Pro Stock and they are allowed to do anything to a 27T brush motor or 13.5 Brushless) This supports the newbies. Stock you have to a ROAR 27T brush motor or a 13.5 non sinter rotor. The reason, when you move up all you have to is to change the rotor...
class of the future: Stock and Pro Stock, with a 17.5 brushless, but longer Main run time... currently we are at 7 mins, and it will go to 10mins or more, with Lipo and Brushless this should not be a problem. I know you fast guys do not agree, but I say gear down and make it last.... Burn up less equipment for local racing...

I would like to see the following format:
Heats 1 - 3 mins (yes, 3 mins) and 4 for them... then the main 15mins. No other form of racing do you Quailfiy the same length as the mains...

Everyone complains, at first, about the 7mins until they race then they love it and want longer... why, run time....

Sorry for the long post, and please before you start in with me, I say try and see what the racers say...
