17.5 Rubber TC
13.5 Rubber TC
Mod Rubber TC
1/12 13.5 1S
1/12 10.5 1S
1/12 Mod 1S
WGT 10.5 1S

It would be nice to see the fewer classes packed with more drivers at the Snowbirds in 2010.

if you are looking for larger turn-out you have to look at what affordable on local and big events....If a racer can race locally on the same euipment as at a large events like the Birds...he/she will more likely attend, cause he wont have to buy alot of extra stuff, plus his car is setup for the most part....when you look at the state of on-road r/c, we need classes that have national rules that allow anyone at the club level to go and try his or her luck at the big boys races.

VTA is a must, cause it has helped the on-road classes so much over the past 2 years...plus everybody needs a relaxed class to run in...this is for "Independents"..sponsored drivers should avoid this class...not to say they cant run it...but should avoid...if possible

or

RCGT...look at VTA

12th scale whatever is the strongest class for the elite r/c racers...a mix of "PRO" and "indies"...

TC 17.5 rubber spec tire...this is a stock class....if you run a spec tire it will allow "JOE BLOW" to get his feet wet on a large scale race...this is another class that will keep cost down....for those not into VTA/RCGT...its also mostly for "indies" but sponsored drivers should run without reward(no trophy or payout)...its a good measuring stick for up and coming TC racers...

TC 13.5 foam...is for the guys trying to get to mod TC...money isnt an option due to the several set of tires they go through in a weekend of racing...or in case of the BIRDS...a week worth...this class isnt for everybody and those who sandbag to win just suck anyway...get in MOD!...once again its a mix like 12th scale, cause you maybe to hang with the sponsored guys but need more "REAL" races against the big boys to make a good jump

TC MOD FOAM...top of the line for ele on-road racing...all the top guys and sponsored guys run this class...very little independents run this class...if any!

this is my take on this...no need to bash any class, we just need to get as much carpet burn as possible...this will be my first year at the BIRDS and VTA/RCGT and 17.5 TC will be my poison...look for me

Im curious why so many people are suggesting 10.5 for WGT. Wouldnt you rather have every event have the same formula? IIC is doing 13.5 and ROAR has decided to go with 13.5 as well.

Why not just do what IIC is doing and keep sponsored drivers out of 17.5 and make them run 13.5 and Mod?

I'm going to say just cut it down to 5..
I know I posted 7 earlier, but 5 just bunches up entries even more, making for better racing.

17.5 Rubber TC
Modified Rubber TC
17.5 1/12 Scale
Modified 1/12 Scale
WGT 13.5

Privateers run Stock classes, sponsored drivers run Modified, and WGT at this point have a mix of both.

Exactly what I was thinking, but I'll let the WGT and 1/12 guys decide what motor to run.
