Ron,
Great job on the race report. That must have taken a lot of time. Enough detail so that if you missed this great event you didnít miss what happened.
Brian,
Great job on getting the site updated with points, picís and report and everything else you did for the MWS this season. After next weekend youíre going to have to come up with a new excuse when things donít get done in a timely manor.
Good luck to you and Stacey. Iím sorry I canít be there
Mark

As you know...elect TC can have 100 different class...but since most of the track are 1/10th and 1/8th nitro friendly....leaving it only MOD 1/10th TC with lipo (or nimh if they prefer) is the ONLY way to go. Trans-Am can be allittle bit STEP UP version cause the current TA rules are mainly for indoor carpet and small parking lot track..I cannot imagine running 21.5 brushless with lipo @ Hamilton will look like (watching paint dry...) but may be using 13.5 with brushless....the same basic 1 motor speed rule with 1 power cell rule...

Then 12th scale or 10th scale pan car style...MOD motor...those are option.

Again, I am just throwing idea....I am in NO PLACE to challenge the 40th years of MWS traditional. But just asking for a change after 40 years of running nitro...simply ADDING more excitment on top of the excited MWS.
I would be very interested in racing 1/10 open mod electric. The best time I have had racing was when I was in England doing the BTCC series. That series went to 10 tarmac tracks throughout the country and was a blast. These were all big purpose built tracks.

I think there are alot of electric touring guys that are sitting on the sidelines here in the midwest, having to race 1/8 dirt just so they can race.

If this takes off I have a few ideas on this and if you put this idea out I think you would get alot of interest.

I have considered an electric MWS. We could not add elect to our current races, as the extra classes would make for a very hectic weekend. A seperate series is distinct possibillity.

Hey Ron, Did you get my email from Red RC? It sounded to me like he was looking for some better photos. A write up over there might get some more exposure for the Midwest Series.

Tom, I did get your e-mail. I had already sent a full write up and photos... It looks like they weren't good enough. I will try to get individual photos from the winners, and send a shorter write up. If any of you winners see this post, take a high quality photo on a white background and e-mail it to me. I will put them together and submit to Red RC. If possible, hold your car & award (+plus any other gear you would like displayed).
I will send out individual requests by e-mail, when I get a chance.

Default midwest series 40th year

this is a great thing to happen to rc car racing in its 40th year of racing and this should be a special year for 2009 midwest series. also i vote for nestalgia pan event at one race to mark the ocastion like maybe chicago race where it all started. one race bring out some cars that started it all and have some fun.
