I will say, non modified engines allowed on this class. and also maybe limited fuel like 20 or 30% max nitro.

That sounds good to me, I like those two ideas.

I think we should leave the fuel open. I think the less tech people at a club race the better. It would be too much work to check fuel at a club race. We need to keep it fun!

It would be good if you could have the fuel limit and not have to check. At my local track, no cars a teched, and we have never had a problem.

We run 16% for 1/10 and 25% I think for 1/8. I use to run 10% in 1/8 a few years back and past guys on the straight quite easily.

Since this thread has started I've been looking at getting back into 1/8. Should be a few 950R's around soon with the 960 out.
