Thanks Donald. It should really be a good thing. I have been planning on something like this for the last two years but had to wait to get out of school before I could execute it. Racing is just around the corner and the purse is going to be bigger because we are doing a 50/50 that will be added to the purse so when I say that $100 is guaranteed to the champion that means it could become larger!!!!

Ok, now that I have learned to read before posting (saw the link with the rules), I am now looking for some advice. The question is for the people running 13.5 and that is what is everyone leaning toward for their choice of battery? I know last year is was pretty much only smc 25c, but now there are quite a few choices and I am really not up to date on what the hot battery is.

Less then a month away. If you plan on running the North vs. South Tour and have a picture of your car please send the pictures to [email protected] and your hometown so we can get them up on the website.

This should be a great and fun series and I cant wait!!!!

Can we get a roll call for this tour, for both classes. Was thinking it would be good because it has a place for my ten year old to run. Just trying to get an idea if the COT class is going to be a class for beginners or not??

Hi Chris,

I've been using a SMC 50C and really like it.
Thanks Jason, I guess it will between the TP-40c and the smc. I have read where some people claim that there is no difference between the smc 40c and the 50c, they claim it is only a different lable, I believe that this is on cycling and not track performance. Do you have an opinion on that topic?

I am the promoter and have been running cars for a long time. The COT is for all racers but the more serious racers are going to be in the 13.5 class. Sign him up and come out for a great time. We are all hear to have fun.

I think that given the latest marketing strategies from the battery companies, I wouldn't be surprised if the 40c and 50c SMC had the same guts. However, I also believe that if there was a difference in the burst ratings (only 10c), based what we've seen from the 2S counterparts I don't think either pack will win or lose a race on its own.

The North vs. South Tour begins in just over 2 weeks. Race one is at Racing City Hobbies in South Glens Falls. The COT class is going to be one of the competitive classes this season and the 13.5 Pro class is wide open for the taking. Each class champion is guaranteed at LEAST $100. Plus prizes from McCallister and BSR to be given out as well!!!
