17.5 will be sleep slow on the big track like leisure

but I should be there for the race barring work....

boost is dead Tekin made the best mouse trap and killed it plus when Hara can run mod laps with a 17.5 tekin boost tc at vegas it sort of makes boosted unreachable for the 99% of the drivers that can't run drive that well. I'm just glad that roar isn't running the 21.5 TC class like they did at the 2010/2011 carpet nats as the "stock" class

seems like Roar is listening to some of us here and there

While you will be able to relax on the straightway in 17.5, you will see some really good racing... When we ran 18 in the VTA main, it was GREAT to watch and the drivers LOVED it... Yes a bit slow on the straightway but allowed them to take a breath and get ready to do battle in the infield for the next lap, and battle they did......
