Okay this is the official thread for the 2012-12 snows winter indoor series at Mike's RC world in Bellingham, WA. the premier winter indoor club race series in the state. last year we averaged over 100 entries per race. here are the tentative dates-

4 cars needed to make a class, if a class doesnt get enough entries it will be combined with the next closest class,

all 1/10th scale are 2s batteries only (we may adjust the 4wd SC batteries).
Ribbed front SC tires allowed in SC buggy only, no ribbed front tires in SC truck.

there will be a track change over the christmas break which is the halfway point.

new this year is the Short Course Bash at the end of the season, this will be a SC only race and depending on excitement could be a 2 day event.

all schedule changes and rules changes will be posted here on the front page for easy reference.

lets get ready to go racing!!!!!!!!

Coolness!! Looking forward to the season and, hopefully, improving my abilities! I know, they're not much, but I can only work with what I have. :-)

BTW, since I haven't posted much on here, this is Scott Dyche.

what class do you want to drop so you can run SC buggy?? do we want 10 classes? how late at night do we want to run? i will add it since AE has now jumped on the SC buggy bandwagon, as long as you can get 4 of them for a class.

I'm looking forward to racing with you guys.
It's been a few years since I've been out
To a track.
I'll be running a FT Sc10 for now but may get
Into a sc10 4x4 one day.
How many people come out on race day?
Is there enough room in the pits for every one
Or should we bring tables just incase?

we usually average at least 100 entries per race. it can get crowded but as long as people leave room for everyone else you will be fine. the secret is get there early.........you shouldnt need a table, they have alot.

But you may want to bring a chair as those can get a bit hard to find.

It'd be nice if the buggies were in their own class this year. Not a huge deal but it was kind of a bummer to have to race with them in ModSC last year. Having to use a full fendered body is/should be one of the qualifiers to run the class, but oh well.
