Default calling all short course buggies!!!!!

This has been a dying class for a while now and I know there are people interested in running the class. There have been some good ideas on how to make the class more popular and fun. The current restrictions as far as i know are only a 17.5 motor and no boost in the esc. Open gearing and open tires. Is there anyone here that would be interested in reviving the class, if so what are your suggestions on making it more fun and popular.

I think with enough interest we could have a very popular class!

I talked to Alex last night and he said they lifted all of those regulations EXCEPT for the esc and motors. They are still limited to "stock" class
(17.5 and no boost)

my vote is for a 13.5 Super Stock class. Would love to get this class going again, but will only be able to run it on Tuesdays due to new work schedule.

I like the idea. Rob said he would be in for 13.5 also.

If anyone is interested I still have my slash chuckworks db scb I'd sell. It the scb that was ran at the 2013 11hr race. It was rebuilt after the race and has been sitting since. I will include a Novak 17.5 ballistic with club esc. Its all rpm or aluminum parts on it. Only traxxas parts are trany gears and front aluminum c hubs. I'd let it go for $175

It has been decided. After the short course showdown we will be switching to a 13.5 super stock class. No gear limitations and open to any short course tire front and rear. Esc will be blinky still.
