I am guessing 1/8 Electric Buggy will probably be the 2nd or 3rd most popular class at this race behind SC Truck and 2wd Mod....and that might be a stretch. 1/8 Buggy will probably have the 2nd most entries. There are still alot of people with cars from the 1/8 ROAR Nats. So I am not really following your comment about it being a less popular classes. As for what classes you can run, that's really up to you. I have not a clue about your arsenal of vehicles. Please come out and race any of the classes you would like. It will be great to see if racing.

When myself, Eric, Kevin, and Hicks got together to decide of the classes for this particular event....I brought up that you specifically would be agree if we didn't include a 4x4SCT class. Eric has been racing for 20+ years, Kevin 20+ and around 18 years or so myself. We all put in our two cents regarding these issues, prizes,etc. We try to come up with the most popular classes based on participation. There was alot of hype of 4x4SCT....yet at the club races, we rarely see more than 5. Also, another big race had just taken place....the J Concepts Indoor Nats. This race attracted just 8 vehicles total. We looked at this and I left that decision up to Eric. I really didn't want to make that one.....as I know someone will get pissed. He talked with Kevin and came back a hour later with flyers leaving this class out. That is when you saw the flyer and said exactly what I predicted. I told you that to get off my back...Hope that explains. Hope to see you out this weekend.

Oh yeah, couple months ago when this flyer was created I wondered and asked you what about 4x4sc. You told me to go ask Eric and see if something could be done to create a non-title class. Yeah well, I did. Thanks!

Like I said. I apologize.

Now answer my other question. What class do you think I should run since my 8th e-buggy is a less popular class.

Wheres the rant? I just see a flyer with classes, a date, etc. This was planned far in advance.

Then I see another racer that isn't the race director, announcer, or owner telling people to bring their cars out and we will make a class. The race and classes have been planned by myself, John Hicks, Kevin, and Eric for around 2-3 months at least. The goals of the race are to promote healthy and full classes of racing, a meaningful event, etc. Also, finishing before dark is a concern. But not the entire issue here.

@LRM, @everyone else who wants to give Norcal a try.....sorry you gotta see this rant. We obviously get along real well at Norcal.

All jokes aside. Call the shop and ask for Eric or Kevin. They are the ones that make the decisions and get along much better than the friendly dartboard and I.

A da da da, a do do do......blah, blah.

I don't care about no trophy, belt, plaque or medallion. I race what I wanna race. If there's a class, great! If not, tough luck for me! Read the other posts from the guys that wanna visit the facility from Sac. I wouldn't wanna turn them or their $ away. I would do everything I could to help the customer be happy. I thought this wasn't a Nationally televised event so creating a class for folks who just might have only 1 car would be ok. I guess with you, it's not. So I apologize.

So what class do you think I should run? I did not know 8th e-buggy was a less popular class. That's what I've been running since putting my 4x4SC to rest.

I want nothing to do with being Oakland Mayor. Thank you for your support. However, I would like Badboy to run for this office. Why not, he has alot of ideas anyways.

Yes, I saw what you said regarding trophy-less classes. That's only half the point. Yes, we can have 14 classes with 5-7 people in each class or... we can have less classes, more challenge for everyone, and fuller mains. There's no law against that, no one will get shot, and all will live. I was bringing up the point of why we need a bunch of thinned out classes at a big 2 day event. Can't you race a less popular class the other 51 weeks of the year? Also, more full classes help the program scoot along. It's really besides the point....so I shouldn't even go there...but it got pretty dark in front of my shop at 4:50 yesterday. Again I digress.....

"norcal states".... Who is Norcal? Are they a magical wizard that is behind a curtain with a huge voice? LOL...

There's a reason why the class structure is set up the way it is. It's for depth and cost reasons. We really want to see deep classes with multiple mains (A,B,C,D). We could have set up 14 different classes and had 5-7 sign ups in each class. That's really what 2 day and bigger races are about. Getting a nice field together and racing. It's nice to have it difficult to make a higher main. It's a challenge. Even if you can't win the A Main, you can try to make a higher main. This is a big reason just a few of the more popular classes are being raced. There was a meeting regarding these classes between 4 of us or so. Believe me...we wouldn't have selected the least popular classes. This is based on what is being raced more often...hence the dropping of Stadium Truck and movement to Truggy 1/8 and SCT....both are more popular than a year ago at the Nor Cal Champs.

Another reason is cost. The cost of the belts and trophies play a role. The belt alone is well over $100 per. If there are only 5 sign ups for a class, its a losing proposition for Eric and Kevin. Please try to consider that. Yeah we could race a 5 person class with no trophies....but this will likely take away from the same person racing some other car/class. Thus thining out the classes....

But I digress.....

It would be great if everyone just raced the classes already set up. You have every weekend besides this one to race 1 cell 3 tire 4wd SC Truggy Nitro hyrdocell single class. Let's be positive, move forward, and have a great weekend.

it's been discussed that there would be no trophy for 4x4sc or any other class that gets 'created' on the fly. trophies will be handed out for those classes listed on the norcal offroad flyer.

norcal states any 5 makes a class so if there happens to be 5 of whatever class, we'll just let em run and have fun!

as far as time goes, we wouldn't have a problem if folks would do their part, and get to t-marshalling as soon as their race is done. this has to be enforced somehow, especially since the daylight hours are fading.

Jerry   you should ask norcal to create a new class..  but saying 5 make a class and they;ll run it  probably wont work since they have ordered trophies andwill bite into the time already alotted.

Is the 1/10 track going to be run wet or dry?

The older I get the faster I used to be.

@LRM. 4x4sc did not take off like 2whl sc. Bring em anyway, so long there's enough for a class (5) then it'll run. Most of us 4x4sc guys are going with the 1/10Truggy.

@Ryan K. If 'short bus' = short course, then Aka Enduro's Soft is the popular choice.

Quick question I noticed you do not run a 4 x 4 SCT class, is that because not enough for a class comes out, or is that just something you dont run? There is about 3 or 4 of us from Sacto thinking about coming down.
