Looking forward to another great banked oval season.
I am sure "Team John" will dominate the has been "team Rick".

I want to see if anyone is interested in a brushless class. I would like to run that as well as the stock class. We need to check the interest and then set up some rules. This could be a brushless stock class with no modifications to keep it even and fun. this could be a fun class that requires little or no work except charge a lipo battery and dope some tires.

John a spec motor 21T and spec battery (i think they are like 1600 or 1700mah) can go as fast if not faster than 4 cell stock.

I would think a spec battery with a brushless 4300 would be faster than stock.
Runtime could be an issue though. Might have to gear em down.

Now that would be an interesting class to run. Should keep the cost down

I will be racing stock until the stock shootout. Then I will go up to 19turn. Hey martin to keep it interesting we should bounce back and forth every week from 19turn to stock.

What is the issue with the lipos, are they dangerous or something?

Keeping the cost down and having another class (Cheaper) to run would be a good thing. God knows the place could use a few new faces and a low cost, low maintenance program could be the answer.

Every time i talk to anyone interested in this they are immediately put off with the cost. At this rate we going to be racing in the parking lots soon. This class has to be a class that doesnt allow any of the modified stuff that is messing up the classes we have now. A straight out of the box brushless motor with speed contoll attached is one answer i think. the racing would be left to talent and car set up. Making the tires blue / green like bush might also help keep it close and less expencive.

what are your thoughts guys?

Used to be Tues nights back in the day.
Eddie & Ricky used to help us newbies out with setup and how to properly build a car.
Each week was a different area of the car. Shocks one week, front end the next, diff the next week.

If I wasnt out of town most weeks I would offer to come down but been too busy lately.
