Smile oh yeah.

Classes so will be a little different this season too.

Truggy Pro
Truggy Open

Buggy Pro
Buggy Open

E-Buggy Open

And really any other class that has 3 or more drivers welcome (E-truggy, SC, ETC..)

So we will have a pro option for truggy and buggy nitro. Anyone can decide which class they feel is right for them, its up to you to decide. Once you choose your class I would suggest staying in that class for the points championship to add up best.

Points will also be setup a little different this year to just to add an incentive in qualifying. TQ will get an extra 2points.

We may also have a random Round Selected for a double points day. Which I will let everyone know about a head of time.

Also random rounds will be selected that will have special prizes awarded that will be announced only at and on the day of the race.

Gonna be a really fun season.

(and dont be scared away if your a 1/10th electric racer, Your welcome to come out and race the series too.)

just remember everyone you do need a personal transponder

Thanks

Michael

Chris is using the Ve8 he won at last years Hot Bodies Challenge.

I just got a new b5 in the mail today and fuel coming tomorrow, hopefully I can get some break in time in the next couple weeks and have it race ready by May.

ya I will be bringing a big box of tires every where I go. With three cars you need tons of tires and wheels. I bought a truck to haul my stuff around in. Building a back yard track right now==Maybe next year I will put in for the 1/10th regionals! ha ha.

To the person who asked about tires- this is a loaded question, has about a millon answers. I will try my best.

For buggy and truggy in the summer run a smaller pin like a megabite, hole shot. For practice run a hard compound, for hot summer days run a med compound, for cool nights run a soft compound.

In the Spring run a bigger lug tire like a megagrid, cailber etc cause the track will be looser. hard tire for practice, med for day racing, soft for night.

general rule of thumb.
