Aww, come on now, are you implying that people are getting tricked into buying something, when there isn't a class for it??

If RCHR were to separate everything:
Imagine,
6 sportsman
3 Spec Slashes
3 SC10s
3 Limited Mod Truck, as some people has suggested also
3 Limited 2wd Buggies
1 2wd mod Buggy (Kyle)
5 Mod Trucks
6 4wd Mod Buggies....

8 classes X 4 heats = getting out of RCHR very very late....

Tom- I saw many blondes and many brunettes that I would have liked to bring home for trophy girls or whatever

Mark- If you want to live in a hot place, I have found it. It was almost 90 degrees with 90 percent humidity at 2 in the morning when we landed. Now at 3 in the afternoon it is 100 plus with 95 percent humidity. It is freeking hot but the pool is amazing and what is around the pool is not bad. But the hotel is like a compound with security checks all over the place, and you are advised not to leave it without a local guide. Interesting to say the least. The best part is the exchange rate is one u.s. dollar is worth 48 of theirs. You could live the life, give or take. Talk to you soon.

Imagine,
6 sportsman
3 Spec Slashes
3 SC10s
3 Limited Mod Truck, as some people has suggested also
3 Limited 2wd Buggies
1 2wd mod Buggy (Kyle)
5 Mod Trucks
6 4wd Mod Buggies....

8 classes X 4 heats = getting out of RCHR very very late....

Or more realistically.....

1) Truck (mod, spec, limited....whatever)
2) 2wd Buggy (again....mod, limited, spec....blah blah)
3) SCOR (slash, SC10....whatever you gotz)
4) 4wd buggy
5) Mini -- I know I know....."I have yet to see a mini that can handle the track at RCHR".....apparently my Vendetta ST has gone un-noticed
I don't think that bone stock 18Ts would have any problems at all either and they're cheap! Not for nuthin, but we could probably easily get more people for a mini class then we do for oval.

6) Sportsman (if and only if the entire class is dead set on not running in another respective class) I understand that some novice drivers are a bit of a rolling roadblock, but they have to learn somehow and it's not like any one driver will have an advantage with them out there.....on the contrary, everyone will be at a slight disadvantage and therefore have the playing field leveled........kyle has to figure out that there actually are brakes on his cars.

7) Oval....well, ummmm. Not really a big oval fan of any scale. I wouldn't mind all that much if it wasn't offered and it'd make things go a whole lot faster on racedays. Plus, you have to be a friggin ninja to marshall those things.


Just my 2 cents.....

I wouldn't mind trying to whip my 18t around the track. But i need some better tires. I dont think my foams will work there. And i dont think my 6800kv is a little to much. Unless i turn it down. Maybe i'll try it today for a little practice.

See here is the thing, I never in anything I said stated to run the Stock slash race at the weekly club races. I know we have to many classes. At the club races I will run with mark and kyle with there modded SC trucks, it will only make me a better racer. I meant to keep them for the throphy races. Every throphy race they have there, we are always out early. SO NO EXCUSE.

Now lets all be adults about this, I expressed how I feel about the whole thing. I will have to run what I brung. Fine with me, So lets drop the whole thing and get back to some competitive racing and just have fun.

Sorry Mark for all of this...

Rich

Because we were all simply supposed to have the same truck. Now CORR is the same as mod truck with a longer wheelbase and CORR body.

It is about a class that ISN'T supposed to be run what you brung...from the beginning IT WAS ABOUT THE DRIVER NOT THE SETUP! Isn't that the polar opposite of the whole purpose of the Slash?

Whatever...some of you now got your wish...
