Maybe you could talk to some of the Companys and see if they would have any intrest in this mainly Assc.

Good to see that everybody likes this idea. Hey, Mr. Anton, your a moderator, do you think you could add an actual poll to this thread? Much appreciated

Also, if there are any website builders among you, drop me a line either on email, PM, AIM Yahoo Messenger (my SNs are in my profile), or just give me a call at 757-620-8569. I will talk to companies and see what we can do. I will also make sure to direct them to the pro10 threads (and even to the 1/12 section since those are pan cars too) if they question interest in the classes

Oh btw red robinhood, I like the tracks. the outdoor asphalt one would work for somethin like this. if it was gonna be indoors Id make that indoor asphalt track a tad more challenging. what's your email addy. I'll email you some designs I threw together that would be of help to you

My moderator powers are only for the area where the other pan car thread is located. Ask futureal about adding a poll to this thread.

pro 10 6 cell Mod (with probably a 12T limit to prevent blowovers)
Pro 10 6 cell touring (with GTP bodies)
Pro 12 4 cell stock
Pro 12 4 cell mod
Pro 12 6 cell open

any Im forgetting?
The quote above was my original list of classes. After some thought (and some suggestions from speedxl and MarkA ), here is what I have come up with:

Pro10 6 cell stock
Pro10 4 cell 19t
pro10 6 cell mod (no motor limit)
Pro10 6 cell touring/gt1 (tamiya f103LM will be in this class)
Pro12 4 cell stock
Pro12 4 cell 19t
Pro12 4 cell mod (again no motor limit)
Pro12 6 cell stock

That sound like a good list?

track designer besides i live in florida there are three tracks here in florida that would qualify for such an event. the track for the worlds is one of them then there is rpm in the orlando area they have thier own thread on the florida board and also madrip speedway in coral springs just out side ftlauderdale.

i would suggest reduceing that amount of classes though because that would dilute the hard core classes. we dont need the 4 cell classes in pro ten. we want to replicate the speed of the origional cars and the feeling of the raw power why slow them down !

Speedxl I dissagree- keep the 4 cell.You should remember that's why we aren't racing them now in the series.I'd go with RPM in Orlando to host the race.

bill the reason we arnt racing them any more is because the guys that voted for the four cell cars arent even racing anymore you guys killed it for sure when you went to that format notice i quit pancar as of the four cell decision i won the last known six cell pancar race in florida. bill you and maybe two other guys will okay the 4 cell look lets give the class a chance to make a small comeback .
first lets get a race to happen then see where it goes four cell 19t really sucked you had a turn out of maybe 6to7 guys at best . the car were disigned to be six cell and if you take a poll right now it will probably be 95% sixcell and 5%4cell.
bill would you rather run a six cell car or no car because knowing you! we will agree on one thing we love and are diehard pancar racers. lets put aside the four cell thing briefly see how it goes them maybe!
but remember the more classes you offer the more it dilutes the competition.
in the old days you had 12 stock 12 mod and 10 stock and 10 mod you only had four choices and the race entries were over 90 and the competition was fierce!
remember. !

whats wrong with keeping this thread this is the main area that everyone looks through. there's a pancar thread hidden in the large scale stuff lets keep it here we need the exposure!
