Yep, either the D compound VTA tires, or the D compound x-pattern GT tires.

Actually, there's many more restrictions in Scale Spec.

Novice is a "rung what ya brung" class. Anything goes. A Silver Can or 25.5 is recommended just to keep things in check. But you can run any tires, any body, and chassis, any weight, etc.

Scale Spec has specific rules outlined here:
http://seattlercracers.com/specsrules/

The differences between Stock Touring and Scale spec are essentially:
- Tires: HPI D-compounds
- Body: Realistic VTA or GT style bodies (with some wing limits I'm not sure have been checked at all this year)
- Weight: 1450g vs. 1380g
- Motor: Silver Can or Novak 25.5

</pedantic>

The motor rule was implied, meaning I would assume a novice wouldn't be running a 17.5. He already stated he has a silvercan.

I'm sure Todd would make a body exception for a one-time racer. I'd hate to turn a guy away from our fun.

I have some VTA tires you guys can run if you need tires, and I'll donate a body for the cause.

Hey Steve Curry, you going to be there on Saturday? I have something for you from Alvin, do u need it back on Saturday or can I get it to you on the next race date? I'm going to miss this weekend, needs to take a day off. If you need it, the lathe, I will figure out how to get it to you.

Yes Brian, I am going to be there for sure. I would like to get the truer back. Is the truer at Hobbytown? Where do you live?

Brian,

I can't make it, I have company at my house. I guess I'll get it later. I will be at the track tomorrow though.
