Context=Total Rhetoric!
Question=Synthesized from "Rhetorical Filth" (Discarded/Disrespected "Ideals" from what seems like nearly a Season Ago!):

"Fore Score and Seven Months Ago", (OK, maybe 3-4 months ago), "In a Parallel Universe the Gallactic Forces inadvertanly Backed into Each Other", (the resulting exchange of "Foot Tasting" did not end well, w/more than one Racer Exieled as a consequence").
Therefore as this Question would pertain to WGT, "I" will not ask.

4 those needing "Decoder Enhancement", checkout my Sig!

Hey Drew,

Your 17.5/Sportsman ESC car is perfectly legal to run in our existing Stock 1/12th class. We will not be splitting the class.

Wells that's nice, I look forward to... well damn, tomorrow! Just realized there was a club race before the regionals

Time to shake down the snobirds setups at H30.

EDit: NVM, I just saw Todd's post

Does that mean I can run a 21.5 with extra weight in stock touring?

Ritchie,
What would bring you back to 1/12th at the Hanger? I have been thinking about the "old days" with rows of 1/12th scalers in the pits...and what is it going to take to get that group to grow? I have watched others "give it a try"
and then throw in the towel. (if only I could have saved them.) What might help curb this pattern?

Folks, If ever there has been a moment to run 1/12th, this is it. This new track has great potential and this is my plea to round up the 12th troops.
Saturday was the first day for me in 25 years to run a mod 12th, and it was outstanding.

BTW, I also have to thank Todd, Brian, Alex, Jake, Kody, and Steve for making this possible. And thanks to the club as a whole.

See you all soon.
Tracy

The new carpet is a great start. I did plan on buying a new top car this weekend while in Calif this weekend, but, that was before I bought a new sedan for nats so its probably not going to happen.

Yes.

You can run a "slower" motor, nobody will mind.

What Lynn in his ... verbiage ... was asking way back was if he could run what would amount to modified in WGT and was told no. Hence the... I don't even know what to call it...

Of course you can. As an example, Ritchie ran 21.5 the other night and still made the Stock main.
