I don't really care if the class comes back. Running it once a year would be fine with me and I want the cars to handle like foam cars. Not rubber cars.

The last real foam race in the USA was at the gate in 09 we ran lilacs. The cars sucked. I'm not interested in that.

X pinks all around.

Honestly, I see no good reason to run a particular class once or three times a year at big events "for fun". That would just be an epic fail in my opinion. I am a big believer in anything worth doing, is worth doing right. Now, I certainly don't know what's "right" as far as compounds/spec/open etc., but to me "right" is whatever ruleset brings foam touring cars to the local club tracks week after week. I'm might be new but I'm definitely confident that one/two run soft compounds won't make it happen. On the other end of the spektrum, foams that handle like rubber obviously isn't the way to go either. There MUST be a definitive difference that can be felt or there's no place for it at all. Hopefully there is a middle ground that folks can agree on. For the moment, lets just see who will support it in Oct. in person.

Either way is fine

Most people have signed up for 1 class (to reserve a spot) and will be adding classes when they get here.
