Todd, as long as the LFA is good to go, I am a happy camper.
Well your lucky! TM proposed a ban on PF ZL1's. Shot down. But if it had passed the LFA would have been next for next years evaluation.

So yes your good to go!

Taking WGT out of the mix stinks, however if mod 1/12 and mod sedan were deleted too it wold be OK.
Mod is sketchy for full heats at best. One wouldn't want to offer what makes sense. Only something for the few that can or will handle it. How about 20 bucks to race, if you can afford 15 you can afford 20.

WGT why not? Can't quite wrap my head around that.

It's only about the chassis. This season I intend to drive blind folded to prove just that !

I will do my best to try not to lose to the A car of jacob. yeah you just got called out bro. lol.
ha.... why not Richie, Dan, John, Jaybee, Rutte - Fast Drivers that have been doing this for quite sometime... LMAO....

Me - you got no worries man... im just a bit over 1 year

mine is gone due to the fragility of the car. i nicknamed it the breaksomatix.

Im not saying that it should be done but its an option to keep the newer guys in the class. i know a few guys got discouraged last winter due to guys running the A car and killing them on track. i know i was one of them. thats why i bought one. and now i dont have one. maybe put a $ cap on the class since we have to run novak motors and hpi d compound tires. maybe a chassis cap is in order too. but its up for discussion.
ECC mains (top qualifers)

John Tsang - VBC - Belt
Dan Garber - Awesomatix
Jacob Reyes - TRF417v5 - Belt
Mike Rutte - Belt
Jaybee - Awesomatix
6th - Belt
7th - Belt
8th - Belt
9th - Belt
10th - Belt

If i didnt have the A car... i would spend close or just as much on any tradional belt car after all the hopups knowing myself. Big carpet races like Victoria and TZ allow awesomatix, and we are not allowed to have one, that would be crazy.... Shoot part of the reason why I got talked to owning one....
just my thought.

Given the steep increases in venue rental prices, as well as our upcoming need for new carpet and a spare decoder, I think PayPal'ing $20 or handing a $20 bill and not asking for change would be an awesome gesture for those who can afford it. $5 every other week could go a long way to keeping this club afloat.

Wasn't the point. But whatever!! I already spent on a car thats a paperweight. Might as well support a lost cause too.

All should give the cars and equipment that can no longer be used or ran too the club to sell for support of Theyr'e lofty future hidden adgenda.

I'm hoping to make it out to race at least a few times this year (though I've been saying that for years now). Looking for suggestions for a good 17.5t brushless for 1/12th stock (12R5 based pile of parts). I saw anything that's not D3.5 based (and is ROAR approved) is OK.
