oh look, more common sense.

All the big races are going "blinky", even the non roar races.

With ROAR, Reedy and IIC going all blinky, Snowbirds will likely do the same.

A boosted 17.5 sedan class with spec foams would probably get 20+ entries at a big race, don't you think?

If my local club decides to go down the blinky road, I'll have to consider racing elsewhere, or change what class I race.

Luckily it wont be until at least winter as we are in a club championship atm....

The latest Indoor Champs offered boosted classes, where were all the racers? Those races aren't free to run. They will go with a class structure that people want and will help them break even or perhaps make a few bucks. If all the people that are adamant that boost is better made the committment to show up at big races they would probably have a class.

This is the attitude that I've adopted. It isn't going to change anytime soon, so I just continue to race....

I thought the same thing the first time I saw a buggy converted to a stadium truck - there goes the Blackfoot class.

Adapt and move on, as long as you're having fun.



(And boost is, was, and shall forever be silly - just buy a faster motor already and be done with it.)
