Nice, an early goal to be met... with following the worlds 1/12 action, the carpet is begging for my pressence... at least in my mind.

If we consistently have 5 or more, I am down for mod 12th. Im used to tires coming in and out of my life quicker than _______! However, I dont want to change the motor and spur in my car on race night because everyone changed their mind to the spec class at the last minute.

No turn limit for modified, unless Pete is winding my motors!

Some have brought up running mod 12th every once in a while...Mod 12th is not easy, at all. Those that run it will be much better off running it every race.

Finally, are you guys sure you want to race me in Mod 12th? Just sayn

I will race Mod 12th if able to. This will be the best conditions that we are likely to get in our temporary environment.

Is there anyway we can get in there a week before the season starts and have a test period on the track before the classes are finalized?

I would be down for full mod or even a mild mod if we can agree to what that means.

do you sell a novak 25.5 and esc combo? like together in the same box

Absolutley true! 1 day everyday now then would be tougher than having a series races to work with, expenses aside.

That's the spirit!

So we have at the table:

Kody
Todd
Tracy
Sean
Trav
Curry (maybe, at times)
Bodine (Its a given)
Peter (started all this)

Briscoe, Rose, Goodlund, Jenkins,..and others should indicate thier level of interest, please. If someone happens to talk to others, let us know.

Keep in mind this is tentitive. If we could double this list, we have a good shot at making a run of it. The other classes that are on the bubble, should get a chance make thier case too(IMO). How that would happen through the club as a whole, ???

Members of Hangar: What is the fate for WGT, F1?

If leave F1 out, and drop WGT (and in no way is this againt Lynn's devotion to WGT, as it shows good turn outs at the bigger events) it would look like:

Novice
Scale Spec
Stock TC
(Mod TC)
Stock 12th
Mod 12th

Anyone?

Pretty sure you could count Cluck in for some mod since he craves the extra speed...

WGT would rule as always... who knows, hopefully decided soon so us privateers can start gearing up/down..

Franko,

Great question. If your asking me, I would tend to let it go to 17.5. The mod folks are getting a faster class to work with and the folks who want to run stock, (new to class/budgetminded/because at the bigger races we are disadvantage not ever running it, take your pick) will have a very competitive class to work with at a better entry point. Folks that already have 13.5 may rather continue with 13.5, being that we had serveral last year started with that wind. For someone that is hyped to run a season of 17.5 and stick with it, they will do just fine making the jump to mod when they are ready or committed. I'm just making rules on the fly...

Tracy

Default classes

I am looking at running a two classes in onroad this winter. I like 1/12th the most so there's one. I tried sedan 17.5 didn't really like it. So I was hopping F1 or WGT would take off. In preperation of this winter season I picked up Korys F1 But if bolth are weak or get dropped put me in for mod and stock 1/12th scale if thats allowed????
