MN On Road Championship Series at MMR 2017-2018 Sunday Championship Classes List Final List TBA

Min of 3 cars to run, or ability to mix and run with another class and score separately

Only ROAR approved motors legal to run

1/12th Pro-Lite 21.5, ROAR legal Blinky Speedo,Lipo,Motor, Max roll out 100mm, CRC Spec Ring Tire, PFM-12 Clear Body : GT12

1/12th Stock 17.5 BL Single cell, ROAR Blinky Speedo, LIPO 1s, CRC Purple strip

VTA MMR Spec , ROAR Blinky speedo, Single cell lipo 17.5 BL motor

1/10th Sedan 17.5 Blinky speedo, Rubber True Blue JACO

1/10th USGT National Rules, No exemptions or ROAR 21.5 Sedan

Novice, Chassis is open, all safety guidelines for batts must be met( no soft cell LIPO's) Driver may bot race any other class except Pro-lite or VTA. If a driver is able to manage the course in a competitive manor and there chassis fits into a existing class may move them into the correct class.



Option classes: These are classes that are new or resurrecting. I.E.
1/10th Off Road, F1, WGT, USVTA, 1/12 13.5 WGTR They will be run as long as they have Three or more racers for the class and/or may be combined with another class during the day. Racers in those classes need to conform to the rules package..

Couple of quick notes as we are close to the Points Races.

First Points race heats will be set random. We will work to avoid back to back races and move accordingly, Also we will work to separate groups who have traveled to race and Family members so they do not have to race each other..

2nd and following races will be set by Points Standings.

Mains will be set by Top 9 drivers with the 10th driver Bumping in, If the class is marginal on the next main, ie 1 or 2 drivers in the C with 10 in the B we will run 3 or 4 in the lowest main and bump 2 drivers. This will be true of the b,c,d etc.

Example: 11 drivers in VTA, top 8 will go to the A, bottom 3 will race the B with two of the three bumping into the A.

12 drivers in VTA, top 8 will go to the A, bottom 4 will race the B with two of the Four bumping into the A

We expect to resort after the 2nd round. Currently that is the choice of:
1st half of season Top Qualifier of the 2nd largest class that day.
2nd half of season Top Qualifier of the 3rd largest class that day.

As long as we continue to see the track change through the day Qual points will be used with exception to large races where track times become consistent for the event. Qual points will be 2 out of 3 rounds on normal Sunday's .

On Road Season Championships will be decided on a 5 Race series with 1 throw out
Each racer will be given a point for each position were they finish in each series. The racer with the most amount of points will become the season champion and there name will be added to the Jacket.

Spec classes tech: Speedos may be checked before or after any qual or main for compliance with ROAR rules:

Motors will be deemed legal as long as all factory markers are in place and no signs of tampering with case or Soldering of winds is evident to the RD.

Winning Motors in Spec classes maybe Teched for $40.00 by any top 3 finisher in that class. Motors will be checked on Shop tools for legality. If found in compliance the Techie will get the Funds minus $20.00 and motor back. If found illegal funds will be returned to protester and racer will be disqualified. Going into 2013-2014 Gom readings under 20 will be considered illegal for club level competition.

Protests must be filled out paid and turned in within 5 minutes of the following race ending.

What we have seen in the past 7 months of testing is they are very equal. 3 cell to single cell lipo. So we are going to leave the wt at the ROAr min for 12th and adjust if needed.

3 cell balance in a T plate car way better then we have been able to balance a single cell.
speedo and single cell on same side two cells on the others and the remaining electronics can be used to balance.

What does 12th SS-Mod mean exactly. To me SS is 13.5, mod is open. Please clarify.

Now that's not to say a 13.5 won't be a good choice and plenty fast to win, but if it is really to be Mod, just say that? If it's mod, I will most likely buy a 10.5, or faster option becasue I already have a 13.5. Now if it is really 13.5, I may buy another one of those so I have for two classes. Others may be in the same boat.

Excited to run on new carpet at MMR.

13.5 single is a bit soft for our cutting edge racers so I fully expect to evolve to full mod but that means those who wish can still run a 13.5.

This will have a evolution through the preseason and will determine if it needs to be pulled back at that time. Though I am not forcasting that.

This will be based soley on track performance and actually racing results/issues/turnouts.

Thanks for the reply. I think that this class will be a big boost for several "cutting edge" guys in the area to take the chance and push their limits personnally, and as a group we will all get faster.

This way when Mitch and Yari come to town next year, they only put one lap on the field instead of two or three!
