Default 4th annual Midwest Carpet Onroad Championships

Here's the flyer for the Midwest Carpet Onroad Championships held at the HobbyTown USA Hobbyplex October 24-26th.

You can also find it in this months issue RC Car magazine.

We've added the vintage trans am class for this year. It should be a blast!

I might even be racing some 12th scale for this one.

Any questions just ask.

Well, Tim will have to answer that, but I made the flyer way back in May for RC Car, before there was a whole lot of hype about the class.

We actually haven't had too many world gt cars...maybe 2 or 3 every wednesday. It wouldn't be too hard to add it though.

13.5 rubber is there it's just not called stock anymore.

It was the biggest class at the nats should be one of the largest classes at this race.

that never makes any sense, 3 sets of rubber tire limit? why is there a limit? who cares? why woudl you want more than 1 set anyways, its not like they wear out on carpet anyways.

Ok, sorry I guess. The limit is to keep the cost of racing down. Never has been a problem before in all the years we've had the rule in place. In fact all I've ever heard is good things about the rule.

The Carpet Challenge is our late winter/early spring race. We're waiting to see when the Nats are before we pick a date. Its usually in late Feb, early March.

Should be able to race... at least looks good so far. TA for sure and I'm leaning towards buckin' the local trend and runnin' foamies just to try something different.
