it has been brought to my attention that stock classes are intended to use only stock parts that were originally included on each type chassis.
the exception is slip on silicone tires that replicate the diameter and width of the original stock tires.
adding a wheelie bar is also an exception.

now, the main reason for this post is specifically G-plus wheels which there are only one brand of after market tires for.
gel claws makes tires that fit the wheels.
considering that other brands of slip on silicone tires are desired by many it is suggested that the stock wheels be altered by grinding off the the offensive area.
G-Plus chassis will still be required to use stock G-Plus wheels and the alteration will be allowed.

this has been an issue on more than one occasion and we do not want repeat "misunderstandings" regarding the rules.

Dave, sorry, no.
there is more than enough to do with the live racers present.
I just don't have any help to race the proxy entries.
good luck with your upcoming race

fall brawl 2016 commentary

great turnout and a nice Fall day.
Thank you to Ed Shultz for helping set up Friday Night and Hank Galloway for renting the Blue Comets Motorcycle Club club house for us.
Joe (pony) Skylark donated some unpainted bodies for door prizes which actually got awarded to those who didn't place 1st or 2nd in any class. Thank You Skylark!
The new MaxxTraxx 1/64 scale ¼ mile track was smooth and clean ..(thank you alpink .. LOL )
the Track Mate DP3000 was used in DP2000 mode to include only RT, ET and MPH for this event. Additional sensors for the 60', 1/8 mile(660') and 1000' will be installed in time for next event.
It is always good to see our regular racers: Dave and Devin M, G$(Carter), Joe Loh, Darryl, Tony(dreadlocks), Jim P, Ed Shultz, Joe Skylark and Hank.
alpink had some fine prizes for winners and runner ups this event.
Doors opened at 8 sharp and Skylark was waiting right outside … LOL !
Testing, tuning and practice ran until 11 when we started qualifications.
We run each class straight through from qualifications until final elimination so that folks who have to leave early can compete in a few complete classes and this also allows any one arriving late to have complete classes to race in.
pics of the winners and their cars are taken immediately after the final for each class.
Without embarrassing anyone I want to say that a few guys with really fast cars were a little too fast on the tree in eliminations. Some sure bets for wins were, unfortunately, eliminated early or in the final. But, see, that is why we race the little cars. Anything can happen on race day.
I'll will announce a spring date as soon as one can be secured.
Some of our regulars were sadly missed for this event, but we all have things that sometimes take priority. Hope all can return in future.
Thank you to everyone who attended for helping make this a successful and fun event.
