RULES

Classes to be run this year at Race em rc.

Class Rules Found here: http://www.raceemrc.com/rules/82-cla...racing-classes

Sportsman
(Any 1/10th scale electric)
Sportsman always was and always will be a class we pay a lot of attention to. It is the future of our sport. All Sportsman races will be extended to 5 minutes long to make it very easy to compare times to the other classes. You can only be bumped out of Sportsman based on lap times and your pace. Not on how many wins you have.

2wd BLINKY Short Course


2wd Short Course Open.


1/8 Electric Buggy.



2wd Buggy Open


4x4 Short Course Open


1/10th Stadium Truck Open


That should cover all of the classes we see at Race Em R/C. It takes 4 trucks to make a class. Just because it is not listed above does not mean we will not run it. We are having Length and Width Jigs made. All trucks are subject to Tech inspection during any race day.

Our summer weekends are already starting to fill up. Any chance you can toss us a bone and post at least a proposed schedule so we can plan around race days?

I know most of you have read that there is only 1 nitro race..

Race Em R/C Board of Directors has choosen to drop nitro. We have planned one big nitro race for the year. If we feel the turn out will be minimal we will eliminate it completely.

Last year our Entries drop considerably with nitro dates. With the county only allowing us 1 a month, it is hard to get a good following. I know that is what the main problem is. This will also allow Race Em to focus on 1/10th scale and grow the sport as much as possible.

We do apologize for any problems. We look forward to racing with all of you in May!

Thanks

Any ebuggy and truggy guys, we'd be happy to run you at any race date if their are enough that show.... Like JZ said, it sadly fallen off at the Race Em Track.

We are planning on building the track more than capable to suit everyones needs this year.
