Which touring class should I race in? I've had experience in stock, 19turn and mod, but never in a big race. Which touring class could I be most competitive wise, as far and the amount of money I'll need to spend to keep up?
Regular touring stock was very competitive as we maxed it out at 130 drivers. The sportsman 19 is real competitive also and not to many factory racers in it. If you want to race with Kinwald or Francis try the expert 19 or pro mod. Hope you can make it!
on the touring oval we have cut the left side off and put 6 cell trays. so our batterirs are out by the left wheels.we are already running the losi nascar bodies no problem.19 turn ultra bird is going to be the motor we will be running??and will these chassies pass roar rules?
Leading Edge makes a great oval conversion for the Stock Chassis on a TC3 Jason Christ has been using it for some time now And has done great
The best parts is it's only $40
LMK if anybody needs more info
I have to work My schedule is done month in advance so I didn't know in time or I would
E-mail me and we can chat on it some more
WE have a big Oval race on the 13th up here and expect a lot of ppl too
How about a Masters Class or two. I don't know of any big oval races that have a Masters Class but there are lots of Masters Classes at On-Road events, such as Cleveland and the Nationals. Even the Gas Nationals had a Masters class.
So, how about a Stock or 19 turn Sedan Masters Class and a Masters Class in oval. I don't know which one but I'm sure if this idea has any interest you will hear about it here. By the way, 12th Scale Oval was darn near a Masters class, then a couple of years ago all those young wipper snappers saw how much fun we were having and jumped in. Now us old guys don't have a chance!
If the cost of trophies is an issue most of us old guys would be happy to race for a package of Depends.
Great points Ted - I totally agree. We have that here at home as many racers have been around since the beginning and still love to race - but the ol' reflexes aren't as good as before. I think the age of 45 and up is good?
On the Snowbird entry I added a date of birth. We are working on some type of 'Race of Ages' where we can somehow have a seperate award for racers over 40 and 50....
I am sure in the future we will be adding an oval and onroad masters class.
