I would like to see a minimum of 4 cars to make a class.

We can definatly run the electric F1 class.

They did run a spec tire last year. I do not remember which one. I will find out.

There will definatly be practice Friday. Just not sure what time yet.

If I don't have to work, track should be ready at 10am.

If I do have to work, track will be ready about 1pm.

As we get closer, I will let everyone know.

So far, I have seen two racers other than myself mention electric F1. Like 2 Fast 2 Furious, can we get a fourth?!? I ran mine on practice day last year for some laps and thought the track would be perfect to run a F1 class. I figure rubber tire will be the rule. What brushless engine would you guys be in to running, 21.5 or 17.5? Blinky/Spec mod ESC correct?!?

Thanks for the reply. We still need a fourth since Bard Smith said he is willing to run F1 as well.

When I talked to Brandon he was using 32/35 or 35/37 with carbon rims last year.

I tossed this out to Mark Z this morning.

I'm thinking about a practice / warm up race on May 10/11.

Anyone interested?

That is Mother's Day weekend. You are looking at a 50/50 proposition from some racers. Too far for me to make if I could come.

I'm trying hard to make this race.

I enjoyed the track during the Nationals race. Looking forward to returning.
