Default Classes

Hey I am looking to join the 1/8 on-road scene, and I would just like to know what the classes there are to run?

Im not sure what you have in your locale but generally you have two classes in 1/8th onroad with both classes possibly being further split into nitro and electric sub-classes.

1/8th IC Circuit Onroad (Such as the Serpent 977 et al on foam tires)
1/8th GT Onroad (Such as the Serpent 811-GT which is basically a converted off-road buggy which is on rubber tires).

There is another 1/8 scale nitro on road class that is growing in the U.S.which is the pan car class.A cheaper alternative to the other classes already mentioned. This is not all over the U.S. as of yet the hot spots for it are the Midwest and northeast.
