actually chewie took the tq with the 3rd round. He was .5-.6 faster then Howard.

I also did howards set up. I blew a shock cap and had to change oil anyways so just asked what he was running and then went to 50wt all around.

I think it was a great day. The most fun i have had at a trophy race in a long time.

If your not intrested in the class, then run modified truck, sportsman or don't run.

AE SC10 is legal using above components.

End of discussion.

there we have the rules. seems straight forward enough to me. Now I might have to even get an sc10 and run that. With the slash esc and titan thought.

There you have it. Plain and simple...

Guess there is no need for a rules meeting now.


Hope I didn't ruffle any feathers. Just didn't want to see people go buy a bunch of stuff that won't be allowed.

Mark can you please clarify one thing for me? Are the spec rules going to be followed for all weekly racing or only for the official points series? Thanks..

All weekly and points series racing for the Slash/Corr/SCT class will have those specs. Any trucks outside those specs will have to run with the regular sportsman or modified truck class.

Customers don't like spec, they like an advantage.

yes, everybody is automatically included in the points series when they race at RCHR.

So, even the non points series folks are in the points series, they just don't care that they are.

So these are the availiable classes and rules.

1. Dirt Oval
2. Sportsman - Beginners Class, run what you brung.
3. Short Course Truck - Traxxas Slash motor, speedo, tires, body.
4. 2wd Buggy - 10.5 brushless gentlemens agreement, but not required.
5. Modified Truck - open class
6. Modified 4wd Buggy - open class


example - a Traxxas Slash with a brushless system would have to run in sportsman or modified truck class.

Exactly what I was thinking...

Why the rollys on oval lol?

I wish I could do oval...maybe I'll rent a 1/18th for fun even though I'll get stomped! I think oval is fun!
