But you'll marshal them at the big tracks while they are moving 3 times as fast and flying over 20/30'?! Did you watch the vid Willy posted? It was a lot cleaner than most of the 4wd SC races I've seen anywhere!

To take it a step further....its Expert Only! And we are the judge of that. In other words you are not getting on our track unless we know you personally and we know you can drive at an advanced level. there will be a 0 tolerance no questioned asked black flag for what we deem stupid and unsafe. We'll discuss at the drivers meeting at the next trophy race.

If I bring mine on a club night, can I race with the hacks in 4wd short bus? They are just as fast????

will, I would also add that whoever marshal's should also have an understanding of which corners they should marshal and have some experience with marshaling (i.e. don't jump out to marshal an e-buggy in the middle or end of a triple or straightaway and not look first to see if another buggy is coming).

If guys want to run e-buggy and have some fun with it, I'm all for it. If I can't keep my tekno sct from nose-diving....

Figures that interest would grow in this only after I sold off my Ve8 at an enormous loss...

I am tempted, but I've been burned once already. Also out of shelf space, and no, Phu, I will not give you any Yokomos to make room

I'm glad to see interest growing for E-bug and I'm also very impressed with John and Wills approach to the class. I voted down the idea at the track on the Island because it wasn't goin to be handled in a safe manner. Its good to see you guys emphasizing the rules for a safe day at the races!
