The only way that would be possible is if the track was configured for duel layouts to really actually have racing and not 6 minutes of organized pothole avoidance. it could be done, but will it?

Why?

It would work alot better than racing the kites on wheels we call short course...at least they can jump! They are pretty much the same size as 1/8th buggy's but with wider tires.

Everybody is scared of 1/10 but as I said before I would race 4-mod if there is a class. I know that the track is brutal but I also like the battle of attrition. I currently only have 1 1/8 buggy and no other class to run at least until the ECO and RX8/1900 show on my doorstep

Sc is Sc, it is what it is and it is there for the reason it is.

I'm sure it would work, but have you seen even the sc guys that are on par with each other race at Bend? They make one mistake and drop down into a hole and drop down a lap. That's just what I'm thinking, so take it for what it is (haha)

I would say if there are three, and three people would actually like to race against only two other people, let the racing begin. Tracks need entries, and who are we to turn down people that want to race their cars. After all we are all about having fun at the Lunsford race!

the only duel track setup that will ever happen in bend will be an oval around the bonfire for 1/10 scale. entry fees are still 20 bucks and yes any 1/10 can enter so everyone can have fun playing with those new 22t's and other cars not listed -under classes ,on the first page

the only draw back is that the oval race takes place at night with the fire blazing and i will have waterballoons filled with gasoline so i can have fun too

Mod trucks are the sh*t. What is all this about the track being too big? They race core trucks on it. They are 10th scale. Plus like Richard said they jump like crap.
