Why so many classes? Looks like it has diluted the race in a big way and I notice a number of regular names not on the list.

10 - TC 13.5 rubber
13 - VTA
27 - 1/12 Stock 17.5
17 - TC Stock
50 - 1/12 Super Stock 13.5
16 - World GT 13.5
6 - TC rubber Mod (Sad that a race of this caliber has only 6 cars)
32 - 1/12 Masters 17.5
11 - World GT 10.5 (I feel bas for who ever qualifies 11th)
24 - 1/12 Mod

206 Total

It wasn't that long ago that the entries would max out at 360 months in advance. Hell, I think I remember one year being something like 420. My first year at Cleveland in 1990, there were 360 entries and only two classes, Stock & Mod. I was in the U qualifier and made it all the way up to the K Main. I think there were more cars entered in the paint Concourse than there are in Stock this year. Good times!

I'm sure that the economy has had a lot to do with the lower numbers, but there has to be something else keeping the other 154 entries away. Is it too many classes? Is it the change over to 1s lipo in 1/12 scale? Is it the cost of the hobby in general? Funny how the largest class is 13.5 1/12 scale and the next largest is Masters and only a couple of years ago TC was the big deal.

I wish I could be there this year but I'm one of those that has felt the crunch of our current economic environment and I'm sure that I'm not alone. I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and a safe trip to and from the race. I will be watching on LiveRC as much as I can so make sure to wave to the camera when you walk by. And to those running in the Masters class, make sure Chicky gets a proper initiation.

The champs were the holy grail of rc racing..now this??? 10 classes?? Only 206 entries??

I've been an advocate for less classes = better racing.
Back when it was stock and mod, 12th and TC and still had 400+ entries.

Dilution is not the solution for exciting RC racing
