Although it could be interesting seperate RM/GT, for the mains combine the top 5 of each together in the main scoring them seperate, like in the early years of TCS with stock/mod sedan. If one class does not have enough to make 5 then the other spills over to make 10 for the main.

Not yet but if you get one for me I wear XL I don't mind talkin some trash it really brings out the competitive force in other people that normally wouldn't come out unless I talked my trash. Anyways this will be truly the one to win becuase it will come down to driver and setup all the motor and battery advantages will be thrown out so whoever wins can truly call themselves a true driver and mechanic.

...which means the fast guys will still be fast, and there won't be any surprises in the A Main. Anybody who's convinced that they would be in the A if they only had "the kind of motor that the fast guys run" is fooling themself.

I remember the little baby blue Coop. I thought it was more like a couple seconds though???lol That race was all about controlling the pace and staying out of trouble. Now I wish I had pushed the car as hard as I could (I'd guess it had another .2 per lap in it) but when your in the lead...you do everything to stay shiny side up and out of trouble! Awesome race though.

I get lucky enough to race several awesome mini racers every race day and they push me every single lap, every single race...It paid off! I still think I'm better on carpet though...Anyone going to the Novak race???

On the Nats....I'm trying!! We'll see

I tell you what though...you and Doc should make the trek to Omaha in October. They have a race here http://www.hobbyplexraceway.com/ Oct.24-26....Probably top 5 facility in the US and always awesome mini racing (handout motors) otherwise TCS rules. I know Wes Wood and Derek England have been there.
