Agreed on the FTD (FASTEST TIME TO DATE) style quals. Re-sorts will be every two rounds, and you're welcome Mr. Caswell. This, to me, has always been the best race in R/C, and my goal is to make everyone agree with this statement again.

What a fun race to watch
Infinite 12th, get your gear ready!!! If you show up, and you run a Tekin esc, I'll help you with ESC ,and chassis set-up advice (regardless of ESC brand), all weekend long. What better way to return to 12th scale racing than to attend the granddaddy of ALL 12th races?

This year, we're gonna go 1 practice, and then 6 quals!!! As for seeding, we're still debating using last year's overall vs. 5 fastest laps. I prefer last year's overall because it makes repeat attendance a definite incentive..................
You need knock out qualifying...

One thing the fastest lap had done at IIC was you had people cranking timing and gear to get three fast laps (in spec timing 12th) and when it came to have first real run they were all back markers and in the way at the 6 minute mark. Ian I'm 100% for seeding on previous years results all annual races should be that way

Great point. Plus with 6 qualifiers, you get an extra re-sort to help level the field.
