We try to finish mains by 5:00pm to start awarding trophies

Late arrivals will not be allowed to run their first qualifier, but can run later after the first round is over. We encourage preregistration, Either call Wheels-Wings-N-Hobbies at 667-7200 or stop in and talk to jeff. To preregister, we will need your transponder number, transmitter frequency, and class of vehicle for each one enterd.

DTRC races consist of two qualifiers and a main. We take a quick lunch break after round one of the qualifers which is around 12:30pm. After lunch, we race one more qualifer and then mains. We plan to get done with mains by 5:00pm to start awarding trophies. Six races with one throw out. There will be bump ups from lower mains.

In this sereis there will be no points and a half for the final race. All races will be on saturdays, rain days will be sunadys.
-All racers must marshall the race following the one they just ran in, or have someone fill in for them or they will be penalized.

I see you have 1/8th nitro/electric buggy... does this mean you are planning to run them together?

I'm also curious why buggy is 12 minutes and truggy is 15?

I also like the 1.5 points for the final but that's just my opinion.

The reason for 12 minutes in buggy is for electric, yes we are runing them together unless there are 4 or more. Electric guys can only make about 13 minutes so we did 12, because that way most can get by with only one pitstop.

There has never been any e truggies thats why its longer mains

The problem is they are 2 fundamentally different classes. I don't think they should be run together, or if the E guys want to run 1/8 they just run to the rules of the class. Not expect the rules to be changed for them.

Where do we put the one or two electric buggies that show up? Not let them run or make them change packs?

Maybe there will be enough to split?

ok, so why is it that if theres less than 4 electric 1/8 show up, the nitro class rules change to accomadate them to run? not trying to get some bad vibes going here, I think it's great when both run together, kind of like a which one is better, but why the change in rules for one class but not for the other?
