Default Inferno GT Racing Info.

I see that these cars are raced all over the United states. I will be racing here in Cincy this year for the first time. Our local track is huge (15 foot wide, 250+ feet straight away) Smooth Black top

Looking for set up sheets that have Won some of these big races ( i know they are not like the serpents and evo's but would like to know a great starting point for me.

Local rules seemes to be as follows. Please try to stay in them for suggestions.

1) cant change the motor and pipe
2) Any rubber tire
3) any gearing
4) Thats about it for now.

Lets start our own GT Thread.

Havn't you learned yet that playing dumb always gets you more info than necessary. In any case glad you got someone involved that listens to others. Deisel please help the guy he needs it.

What ever you do dont let him out on the track by himself, he might just break something.

Sat. is another clean up day, board replacement, PA check day, and lap computer checking so bring your dad deisel and lets get ready for a summer of fun and racing with these big bad boys.

Lets start our own GT Thread.
I just checked the club site, and it seems that you can do much more. Their rules are in line the Midwest Series rules. You can change the engine and pipe. Must use a commercialy available .28. For the MWS we are limiting it to sport level .28 engines.

JSpeed. hey looks local to you. Do me a favor, go around and take as many notes as you can ie gearing (where they got it, motors and such) this is awesome i would love to be able to come and watch this event. Also any possible interchangable parts, then PM me so i can screen what to put on this site LOL. SETUPS in general......I would have thought keyosho would do some of this for us like they do on other cars???

Duneland, thanks i thought i saw that. Was hoping it would stay relatively simple so that all the great 1/8 (guys in the magazines and sponsered drivers would stay away LOL. I know the MWS is that way or was reading but i believe the local track is also going to develop a breakout time so all those hopups would mean nothing but loosing a lap. I just hope to get good control of my car over the next couple months, then maybee start to tinker with other stuff later.

If this class turns out to be really big then maybe open for the advanced drivers, until then you will not get and groom new drivers by throwing them in with guys that have raced forever.

My 2 cents, but if getting new drivers involved is the reason for the new rally class, then protecting the reason should be just as important as the reason itself. Or else you are just making another class for the current people to run that feel like it which equals the same drivers and not the reason i thought this class was started for and the reason i became interested in it.

I know thats alot of Reasons but hey, i'm no literrary (lol) buff, i crash cars for fun.
