Default Poll: Foam Sedan Racing

There's been a lot of talk about the state of foam sedan racing in the US, especially with the low turnout at IIC. I'm curious how many clubs still have a class that's run on a regular basis, or expect there to be one when the winter season starts.

If your local track has a foam sedan class, mind sharing with us where that's at, and how many people are showing up?

This isn't intended to flame foam, or start a holy war, just to try and really assess where things are at, because there seems to be a lot of confusion on the issue.

Tri-State Hobbies in Cincinnati, OH is probably close to 50-50. It varies week to week.

Syndrome-foam sedan has died at our local club but there are talks
about bringing it back in the fall and winter seasons, so we'll see. I loved the class but rubber TC has dominated it due to ease of setup and lower costs.

FWIW, there are a few exceptions but it primarily seems like in this area the guys that run electric TC year-round (meaning outdoor asphalt rubber tire racing in the summer) run rubber tires in the winter and the guys that run Nitro during the summer primarily run foam tires during the winter. There are a couple exceptions but that seems to be the pattern in general.
